My Wonderful Dad
0

6 posts in this topic

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!

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.

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
