Back from root canal. Keep in mind, I am a black belt in karate - undefeated in competitive fighting. I have had a freaking metal stake jammed in my side, and have hit an oak tree at 50+ miles per hour.

NONE OF THAT COMES CLOSE! Worst freaking pain ever! I literally jumped out of the chair a few times. :

BUT it is behind me now... I can recover now right? Just need to get a crown... dunno what that involves, but cant be worse... right?

So sorry! heal quickly. I don't think a crown is as bad

Or come visit me LoLo, tis legal here.

Or here.. .. . . :)

. Did you miss the big killer mutant wasp attack of 2012? Massive stingers at the ready they buzzed down from the light fixtures and up from the bed covers. Never deterred except for a direct hit from the hairspray and floppy sandal. And then Vincent shared his roots with a friend who was all too happy to explore them.

Fairly normal going's on around here.

:lol::rolleyes:

Welcome back Looey! Is that a new name for u? :) Ok, Peanut-Looey it is then. Sounds like quite an adventure there Peanut-Looey. Between you in your luxury spa visits (hospital) and Shroomster's coma conundrum we had a lot going on. Did you miss the big killer mutant wasp attack of 2012? Massive stingers at the ready they buzzed down from the light fixtures and up from the bed covers. Never deterred except for a direct hit from the hairspray and floppy sandal. And then Vincent shared his roots with a friend who was all too happy to explore them.

Thanks for the snow forecast! :)

Hi guys. I know this doesn't belong in this thread so if a moderator could move it I'd appreciate it. Since I've been home from the hospital I can't keep anything in me. Terrible runs. Living in depends. I decided to play detective and called the hospital to see what the name of the food they gave me through the feeding tube was. It was pulmacort. I looked it up and discovered soy was the main ingredient. At least now I know I'll be able to eat again later this week. Staying with water & ice chips. Even jello is too harsh.

Love,

Loey peanut

It has no fiber so it does go thru in a runny fashion. Did you want a topic about it?

Looks like i'll be getting the flu shot this year :ph34r: Hopefully, i don't get sick afterwards (I know the flu shot doesn't cause it, but lo and behold after i've gotten them i've usually gotten the flu). Maybe its due to the germs in the hospital? Ugh.

I've got a doctors appointment this week to do the standard check up. I'm going to see if i can get my doctor to run the celiac panel (or at the very least the IGA TTG) test again. I wanna see if the numbers have dropped since i've been gluten free.

Praying you won't get sick. I still need my pneumonia shot. I've had it three times in six months. Off the pills but still withdrawing. It's worse twice a day. Right nw I want to sleep but I'm shaking too badly. BTW, since stopping the pain pills my pain levels between a 1 & a two. On them it was a 10. Going to try to sleep - might be back on if I can't. Too tied to deal with junk mail.

Love,

Loey

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
