That's better! Somebody tell a funny! I'll go first.

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint

pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a

decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater,

on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300°C.

The Russians used a pencil.

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.

So sorry for your suffering. Two dentists back I told that when I was little (eons ago) my childhood dentist taught me the incorrect way to brush my teeth. He actually gave me gas when I was 3 or 4. Their way actually caused all of my gum and sensitivity problems today.

Vincent give them a call and tell them it is an emergency. Most of my gazillion docs leave me a message giving me the date and time and tell me to call if I'm not available.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,

Healing Hugz,

Loey

Karreighn said "rectify". :P

Good catch Patti. Us Jersey girls (I might have had to move from the State but I'll always be a Jersey girl at heart) have good eyes and big hearts (especially yours). Time to try to go back to bed.

Thanks Loey... they put me on the top of the cancellation list, otherwise I wont get in before I leave for Christmas tripping!

My Christmas holiday is the best cause I get a long chunk of time off (I work at a university) so we hop in our truck and drive. Probably cover 2-3k miles, several states and I will finish up by being the guest preacher at a small church near Pittsburgh.

USA Today.

Not the newspaper. A day trip to Niagara Falls NY.

We needed gluten-free Bisquick for a holiday recipe that WardGirl wants to make. It is not available in Canada. We also grabbed Corn Chex and Bob's Red Mill gluten-free rolled oats. Picked up some stuff at Best Buy, too, that they don't have in Canada. We shopped at Wegmans for the first time in probably ten years. When the family had property in the Finger Lakes, Wegmans was the go-to store. The property was sold in 2006, but we had not been there in a long while before then.

So, my stomach is still being annoyed, i'm trying to figure out what set it off... was it:

A. stress (mind you its finals week)

B. a virus (i'm around many people Monday-Thursday)

C. the going bad milk (one day past its date, kinda tasted off but i played it up to my imagination)

D. CC'd at the memorial on thursday (handshakes with many gluten eaters eating gluteny things)

My stomach has been feeling off since thursday (my GERD has been acting up, no fun either).

So what say you?

I'd go with a possible combo of all four.

Take a nice long hot bath with epsom salt and bubbles -- or just shampoo or handsoap in a pinch.

Try to get a good night's sleep.

Keep food simple during finals and if something smells bad...toss it.

No tub for me, just a shower stall... :) But i've already stood in it once today.

Sleep? i'll try.. :)

Of course. I'm going to keep it simple this week.

Luckily i don't have too much homework to do, just type up a paper (a short one less then 3 pages no less) that i'll hit tommorow. I'll also have to prepare for an inclass essay that is the final. And of course a history final that i have no idea what will be on. Fun fun...

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      Is Tissue Transglutaminase IgG one of the tests that can be done (I am guessing that is what TTG IGG stands for). Please correct me if I am wrong.
      Thank you.

      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
