43 posts in this topic

Since celiac3270's "firmly gluten-free" thread is getting longgggggg I wanted to bump it to a new page and give everyone a chance to leave our favorite celiac a good thought for a better diagnosis and "going forwad" days after the 'scope coming up. (I knew he would not presume to do this himself :) Knowledge is power, let's hope you get some on the 13th...

I forgot it was coming up so soon. Good luck! (I admit to being confused at first, because I'm used to 'endo' being used to mean endometriosis, a gyn condition, and ... well, was just very confused. ;-) )

celiac3270,

You are in my prayers. Monday just can't come soon enough! Looking forward to hearing what comes from your endoscopy. I know that you need answers and I hope that you get them. But most of all I hope that you are able to feel better soon. You are a great inspiration to so many of us here and I'm sure we all agree that it will be great for you to be pain free and symptom free. Look at all that you have accomplished while suffering. Imagine what you will be able to do when you are completely healthy! :D

Let us know how it goes. You too Stacie! Good luck to you on the 14th!

God bless,

Mariann

Thanks again, everyone :) .....I am even more happy that I'm going to get this done Monday, now. Like Mariann said, "Monday just can't come soon enough". In the past I got abdominal pains and vomiting...once every 3-7 days......now, for the past seven days, I have had abdominal pains -- not much vomiting -- a little last night, but I'm not used to seven days in a row feeling sick....since it's getting worse, I'm really glad that I'll get this checked out. This is a big year for me--there's a mandatory shakespeare play thing, which requires a lot of time and is a really big and stressful process..........even more, I have to apply for highschool (tedious forms to fill out, many essays to write, SSATs, other exams that different schools want, and most importantly, interviews and tours that I can't be sick for :( .......etc.).........so I really want to get this straightened out....at least if I find out what's wrong with me, I can maybe get some sort of medication to ease the symptoms or something..........but thank you all sincerely for your thoughts and well-wishes for not only the endoscopy, but answers and elimination of symptoms :D . School starts tomorrow for me and will drastically slow down my postings, but I will make sure I tell you what happens with the scope and results...

Know we are with you in spirit. I will keep your health and education in my prayers. Try not to stress, easier said than done, about school issues - I wonder if the stress is flaring things up. I hope you get some answers.

The first day of school was great -- and the second, today...........I'm getting back in my study-nerd-workaholic mode without any trouble..lol :D ...anyway, in my school of about 320, there were three celiacs. One kid who is three years younger than I am (gluten-free over a year), a kid who was in the eighth grade last year and is now at some secondary school, and then, obviously, there's myself. The teacher that that celiac had last year is now my teacher, so he slightly understands the limitations of celiac disease.........

Oh, the reason I posted. I found out that the biopsy is at 11:30. I need to be at the hospital by 9:30 and no food after midnight before the endo....then clear liquids including water and apple juice are allowed until 7:30. So, that's the time slot now. I got assignments from my teachers for Monday cause I don't want to have to make up a lot of work or call people and do work after the endo. I want to get all my stuff done this weekend so that Monday I can just lie around and relax and post..... :D when I finish. I'll post when I get home. Thanks again for your support.

Wow, celiac3270, that's great that they know what you're dealing with! (Well, I hope - we've heard stories of celiacs who... aren't well enough informed for their own good on this board. ;-) )

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
