In Topic: So Depressed!

06 September 2004 - 02:16 PM

I start physical therapy for my neck this week. The doctor wasn't really thrilled about my going back so soon after my surgery, but I am in a real bind with money.

I was pretty much eating what my son eats until I had so much problems with my neck and back. I had a hard time with all the cooking I generally do. It seems cheaper to me to make my own stuff rather than try to find gluten free foods in the stores. There are no health food stores or any of those nice big chain grocery stores that carry the gluten free foods anywhere near me. I usually order the stuff or buy a lot when I make a trip to a health food store. I couldn't do any of those things for a while, because I wasn't able to drive. I think most of my trouble started when I stopped eating the gluten free foods. That's why I think it's celiac disease, but I didn't realize that could be what caused the depression to get so bad.

Thanks for your response.

In Topic: Testing ?

Thank you so much for your replies! This message board is different than ones I have used before, and I was beginning to wonder if I was doing something wrong.

I'm still trying to decide what to do. I am expecting resistance with the doc, because I have "been there, done that" with my son. It was with a lot of research, a lot of frustration, and a lot of tears that I finally found someone to realize my son really had a problem which was not a normal boy or the product of a single mom household! Still the group of doctors I'm going to (our family doctors) don't understand what testing he has had and why and pretty much ignore his diet which is EXTREMELY frustrating when he needs an antibiotic. I have had one even ask me to tell him what to prescribe!!!! I am expecting the doctor to be reluctant in ordering the testing, if for no other reason than he won't know how to interpret the results. That is the reason I was wondering about the amount of gluten I would need to consume for it to show up on the test. I would hate to have the tests come out negative when I do have celiac or gluten intolerance. I guess I am also curious now to see if my son got his problems from me.

Thanks again for your replies! :)

Do you need a doctor's order for these tests?
