I took a nap and had a dream that there was a massive tarantula in my house :blink:

I suppose, since I'm stuck with unwilling celibacy at the moment, I can be the

one who takes this one for the team.... (for now.....) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yay Bunnie!!! Finally feeling better here...don't need any added limitations right now ;)

PS...hope you don't have to remain in this unwilling state much longer.

My GERD has decided to say hi tonight. Probably because i was so stressed today :/

Its at the stage of "enough to be annoying, but not enough to take something for".

Man....lotsa unpsilly stuph goin' on, here... . . . . :( . . ...GERD (which I suppose actually CAN be somewhat psilly -- I've always thought the acronym to be, anyway), and a pending root canal. Have you had one before, Vynscent? My daughter was in a horrific accident when she was twelve and all four of her front teeth had to be root canalled -- the proceedure was like a walk in the park -- no pain, in and out in an hour. My sister has had two, also painless and no big deal. However, once we start talking about the $$$$. . . ..well, THAT was an ordeal..... :(

Sorry V :(

My husband has terrible teeth--despite excellent oral hygiene and dental visits. His teeth are soft, and after a while just crumble. He has had more root canals that I can count, and actually fell asleep during one of them! Hopefully, yours will so smoothly and painlessly.

Good luck Vince. They'll numb you (or put you out) and give you pain killers afterwards. I hope it goes smoothly.

Sending extra positive energy and healing hugs,

Nope never had one before, but I have LOTS of fillings. Over 20... lost count along the way.I cna tell you every one of they was an extremely painful process to get done.

I brush/floss every day now... but when I was a teenager I could not be bothered and was haphazard with it, so i think I am paying for that now. All I know is right now my tooth REALLY hurts. The whole side of my face does, and even my temple feels tender. Grrr.

I missed the call from the doc office yesterday to set up the appointment. Grrr.

There is stuff at the pharmacy called red cross dental - it'll take the pain away until you get to the dentist. Warning - it tastes horrid! But does buy you time.. We take this along when we travel as my husband also has soft teeth that have a knack for breaking away from home.

Decidedly un-psilly! I will try to rectify this with a joke:

On the first Xmas, the first of three Wise Men stepped carefully into the stable but sank his golden slipper into a big pile of manure.”Jesus Christ!” he yelled.The woman beside the manger turned to her husband and said, “Now, Joseph, isn’t that a better name for the kid than Irving?”

Just got back from getting me hair trimmed. It was longer on the left side than the right, and was driving me nuts......it must grow faster on that one side since it was even when I last had it done. :huh:

Or I am lopsided :lol:

Luckily i've never had a root canal :blink: i have had four major fillings though (on my very back four teeth no less). I actually became un-numbed during one of them whilst he was working on it, not fun (he did call be brave though).

I've always had strong roots on my teeth. When i had my baby teeth, most of them (i kid not there were maybe 5 i got out myself) had to be removed at the dentist because the roots were the size of the tooth if not bigger :blink: they just would not desolve. I actually had a tooth bust in half (baby tooth) on pasta no less and i had to pull the rooty half out. :blink:

My teeth have strong, long roots too. Found out when I cracked a wisdom tooth on a popcorn kernel....<ouch> and had to have it pulled.

Took over an hour :o

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
