New To The Forum But Not To Celiac
0

4 posts in this topic

I am new to the forum but have been reading info from Celiac.com for quite some time and it has really helped me. I have been gluten-free for 2 years now and also have MS. Getting diagnosed with Celiac was one of the best things that has ever happened to me since now I have my life back and continue to feel better all the time...unless I have made errors and that is where this forum comes in. I need to continue learning so I will not accidentally make an error...especially at the wrong time. We all know about that.

Now, for the tech question. Is there an easy place to search for a topic, especially in depth? I must have missed this on the site. I have limited time, as most do, and cannot simply read thru everything. So, any tips would be appreciated. I made a few posts...but am not sure where to check my posts to see who answered without going thru the different forums and searching for my post. There has to be a way to mark my posts to save time.

Sorry for my ignorance and I appreciate everyone's help in advance.

There are lots of ways to use this forum, but here are a couple which might be of use to you. In the upper righthand corner of the page once you have logged on you will find a box with your user name. Click on the box and it will give you a pulldown menu. Click on My Profile, and in the box that comes up, besides a lot of interesting information, you will see in the line across the top of the box, several clickable buttons. By clicking on Topics you can find the latest topics you have started; by clicking on Posts you can find the latest posts you have made. Down the lefthand side of this page you will find My Content. Click on this and you willl find every thread in which you have made a post (for the last 12 months I believe).

Another way to identify threads that you are posting in is to click (on the index page) on View New Content. This will bring up all posts made by all posters in the last 24 hours (or since you last logged on). There are various colours in the boxes next to these posts and some (if you look closely enough) will have a diagonal bar through the lower righthand corner which, on closer examination is revealed to be a pencil, meaning that that is a athread which you have made a post in.

If you want to find all posts made in the last 24 hours, go to the forum index page and the line across the bottom has a button, Today's Active Content, which willl give you all posts made in the last 24 hours regardless of whether you have logged on or not. There are other ways of following threads on the forum, but as a moderator I do not use them. Someone else may explain them for you.

In addition to Shroomie's suggestions, a quick way to search the forum is --can you see up in the right hand corner, under the CELIAC.COM BLUE Banner and your profile, there is a

SEARCH FORUM VIA GOOGLE.

Type in the topic you are looking for and related threads will appear in a new screen.

Hope this helps!

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
