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

    • Just wanted to add, that when my friends or family want to eat at a restaurant that I am not sure about, I bring some snacks and then order a drink.  It is all about the company, not the food.  
    • Based on the information you have posted today, the most likely probable reason for your being ill is that you are getting glutened!  Here is a biggie....does your hubby brush his teeth prior to kissing you?  Seriously, it can happen, but going out to eat a lot.....that can be just as bad!  We eat at restaurants that have been approved by celiacs (websites).  Just because that offer a gluten free menu does not mean that they understand about cross contamination.  
    • I got glutened last summer.  Heck, I do not even know what glutened me, but I suspect two products that my gluten-free hubby never consumed (he is my canary).  My symptoms were so different from when I was diagnosed (just had anemia then).  My GI thought I had SIBO or something else, but I asked for a celiac panel.  Yep, I had been Glutened!  Took me three months to recover and another three to regain lost weight.  Yeah, I picked up another health issue on the way (hives, rashes, swelling, itching, ab pain, vomiting, and fainting.)   I did not eat out for one year!  Only this summer, I did.  Was it worth the risk?  You bet!  Three weeks in Europe.  Fortunately,  7 days was on a cruise and Celebrity did a great job.  Italy was so celiac-savvy and I did my research and found places recommended by other celiacs in Spain, France and Poland.  If not, we bought cold food at the market and had a picnic.   I am home.  Will I eat out?  Probably not.  I have a busy Fall ahead of me (High School....football, marching band, volunteer positions, house projects, and work).  I can not afford to be sick.   Ah, I will eat out this Thanksgiving break.  My favorite restaurant is 100% gluten free in Tucson, AZ.   Maybe I will discover another gluten-free restaurant closer to home! 
    • I do est out occasionally - but not indiscriminately.  I am careful to choose places that under stand gluten free.  And places that the food is naturally gluten-free, helps, too.  Celiacs can't just eat something that should be gluten-free and hope it is.  We have to use some common sense and ask questions.  
    • You are right that the next step is an endoscopy, which still is the "gold standard" in diagnosing celiac disease.   However, for various reasons the endoscopy is not done because financial contraints  or long wait times (up to a year!), or too ill to proceed.   You have two positives.  You only need one positive to move forward.    The TTg tests  do not need to be positive for a diagnosis (which requires a positive on an antibodies test which you had and an endoscopy).  My TTg tests were negative and I only had a positive on the DGP IGA, yet biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe damage. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Unless your PCP is a celiac expert (unlikely), I would insist on a GI consult.   Please find one who is celiac-savvy.   keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete (biopsies done).  You never know if lab results are going to get lost.  Besides any celiac testing requires the patient to be on a gluten diet.  In the meantime, keep on researching.  Only YOU can be your best health advocate!
