Quick Hello
0

8 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say a quick hello. I was out of town for a week with no PC and then Saturday got hit with a stomach/head/body virus. Needless to say it has wiped me out and I have not been able to even sit at the computer. I am still recovering from it and feel awful but at least I didn't have anything with gluten. Imagine how much worse off I would have been. I remember times when I would get sick but never get better.........that's because I was encouraged to eat cereal/bagels for breakfast even when I wasn't hungry......just to keep up my strength! who knew? The gut problem I am dealing with now is the irritation from Advil Liquid Gels ( i checked them out and they are gluten-free) which I know will get better in a few days. I am sure that this bug is starting to leave my body!! yeah!

Hope you are all hanging in there!

Happy Memorial Day!

thanks for the well wishes...........My gut is still sore and sensitive.....My IBS has acted up from all of this. I guess I have to baby it for a few days. I tried eating lentils!!!!...big mistake..oh my gosh........I was so bloated for 2 days and then yesterday had some chips that blew me up too......(no gluten but I think the oil got me). Temporarily back on zelnorm and zantac...(just for a few days to help it along)

kaiti, I noticed you have a new picture up.........boy you look great! who is the other person in the picture?

OK....gonna try to get out of the house today. so much for memorial day weekend!

Take care guys, :rolleyes:

The picture is kind of fuzzy so it doesn't look like it should but it's good enough that I'm not gonna mess with it lol.

The girl in the picture with me is my best friend chelsey. :D

Mel-how are you feeling now? Maybe you can do things this coming weekend that you would have done over memorial day weekend.

Hi kaiti,

i was actually in Miami for a week right before Memoral day and got back that thurs. Who knows....maybe I caught something on the plane!

the weather was nice and the beach was magnificent! We went to the new Hard rock Casino and of course south beach and then my niece's high school graduation. I took my brother and his wife for a few days too and it was a blast...in spite of the dietary challenges. My IBS has been acting up big time but I tried not to let it get me down...I wore loose things and didn't eat too much...but when the spasms hit boy were they bad.

all in all..........a good time!

hope your holiday was good too!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
