My dad was so wonderful today. I played kickball last week, tripped on a base, and felt a little sore afterwards and by Monday was fine. Then went again today and my legs were in severe pain feeling like my muscles were tearing and I needed NSAIDS to deal with the swelling. So I had to stop by the drug store on my way home as I didn't think I would be able to get back out to the store after I got home. I haven't taken any NSAIDS since diagnosis because up until this last year I was on medication that wouldn't let me take any, so I hadn't looked to find out which ones were gluten free. But today I needed one of them but it was after 5pm and the pharmacist couldn't help me even to tell me if the store brand had gluten. So I walked away from them crying because I was in so much pain. I called my dad and luckily he was able to get on a computer (I don't have internet on my phone) and check and find out what I could take. I talked him through how to check and see if a med was gluten free. It probably took us 15 minutes to get the search done and get an answer I was comfortable with. As I sat on the floor of the drug store. He is so wonderful to help me! I love my Dad! Happy Father's Day!

That's so awesome! You're lucky to have such a great dad. I happen to think my dad is pretty awesome, but he'd never do that for me. (And not because it would take him an hour to get google search results on his crap internet connection. :lol: )

Thanks both of you.

I found out that Advil is okay.

I think part of the benefit too was him seeing how hard it can be to find out this information as we checked another med first and couldn't find anything on their website about it one way or the other (can't remember which one).

Googles, your story just put a big smile on my heart! I too had a Dad who would go WAY above and beyond to make my life a bit easier/better/happier. Give him a big hug from me, and wish him a happy Fathers Day!

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

That's super cool. Our family does this to each other all the time. My mother calls me from the grocery store to ask whether an amazon price is better, I call her to look up whether something is gluten free, my boyfriend calls either of us while he's at work because he found a Jamaican 100$ bill and wants to know what it's worth.... We all think it's pretty funny.
