Hi guys,

Just a quick question...

I don't know if it is related but everyone of my knuckles have become red/sore and two are cracking (not bad)and bleeding a little.

Anyone have any thoughts???

Thanks

Mr Happy


That happens to me in the autumn. I'm in a really dry climate though; semi arid. Plus I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism so that makes my skin much drier than most people's I always have cracked fingers, feet or knuckles. My husband told me I could never be a foot or hand model... Oh darn! LOL

If it continues, you could have your thyroid tested. I'm really not sure if dry skin is a celiac symptom. Hmmm.

Good luck.

I get that too, somewhat, and figure it's more of a dry air/hard water problem than a Celiac thing. If it doesn't go away with moisturizing, etc, get it checked as it could be Dermatitis Herpetiformis (sp?), which is a skin problem associated with Celiac.

Oh, and even from my trip there earlier this year, the UK seemed pretty good in the gluten-free dept. I even got some nice bread at the supermarket! Fresh! Every B&B I stayed at was super accomodating, and found lots of gluten-free options at restaurants and such. So, it's a good place to be. I'm going back this Nov and will be self catering for a few days, so kind of excited to load up with stuff.

You might want to go easy on the breads and other processed stuff for a while though. Give yourself time to heal first. Our damaged guts can have trouble processing grains and processed stuff for a while. Good idea to cut out milk for a while too, as I think you said you're doing.

hope you can get in for tests quickly.

Cheers

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

Okay, I have to say it.

The name "Mr. Happy" gave me pause yesterday when I saw you listed under New Members. But I see it is not necessarily
a name for someone who appears in adult films, but rather a man who has indeed, become happier off gluten. :)


Here's a "whoohoo" !! and good for you!

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! you dirty girl you...



Mr Happy, you probably just have dry skin. Maybe your system is using up all your fluids to heal, who knows. Try to eat more salt, drink more water, and try Neutrogena Norwegian formula hand cream. Only thing that didn't hurt my skin when it was cracking and bleeding from working a housekeeping job.

My secrets out,the adult films were a long time ago... ;)

Just a quick update, just had a battle with my doctor but they finally have given the go ahead for the celiac and mineral test at the hospital... Have also got the forms for my children to have them to.

Always the same at my doctors, they make you feel your making it up... I wasn't backing down though.

Do I still feel good? Yes I do and feel better everyday... Eating loads and have now nearly shed a stone in weight...

All the best everyone...

Keep it up

Mr Happy
