Topics I've Started


11 May 2004 - 09:08 AM

Over the last few weeks or so, I've had a few bouts with incontinence (with diarrhea). I didn't even feel like I had to go or anything like that...I basically just crapped on myself with no warning or anything. Awfully romantic, isn't it. :blink:
Has anyone else had this problem??

Ibs Vs. Celiac

11 May 2004 - 05:35 AM

Okay..maybe I'm just too spazzed into trying to find out what is really wrong with me. I'm just so damn tired of being sick. But I was diagnosed with IBS about 10 yrs ago (also saw on my medical records that I could have Inflammatory Bowel Disease...anyone know the difference in that and IBS?) Anyway..what exactly are the differences, symptom-wise between IBS and Celiac? As I mentioned in a previous post, I can't afford to see a doctor to be tested for Celiac..can't afford that other one, the one that tests your stool by mail, the name escapes me. So..is there anything I should look for that would make me think it might be one or the other? I am on the gluten-free diet. Just started that about a week and a half ago. But it's not helping yet (and I know that can take a long time), and EVERYTHING I eat right now is making my intestines go crazy...so I can't narrow it down by foods. Any other suggestions?? :(

Eating Makes Me Sick

07 May 2004 - 09:12 AM

I don't know what to do anymore. I just started the gluten-free diet maybe a week ago. My symptoms have gotten so much worse over the last month. Attacks where I couldn't get up off the floor for a few hours because I would pass out if I did. Now I can't eat anymore. This has happened before. No matter what I eat, I get horrendous cramps, hot flashes, diarrhea, anxiety as well. I just tried to eat an apple and I couldn't make it even half-way through the apple. Someone please help me!! Does this happen to any of you, too? And what do you do about it?? I feel like I'm just plain going to die!

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in..but I'm sure it'll get there. I have heard probiotics being mentioned a few times in various posts. Can someone explain to me exactly what they are. And is this something I need to be taking on a regular basis? :huh:

First off..I don't even know for certain if I have celiac disease. I have been diagnosed with a few other things like Irritable Bowel..but when I had a horrible attack at my father's house (and it was not long after I ate a bunch of French Toast) he said it looked and sounded like celiac disease (a friend of his has it) and gave me this website to go to. And it sounds exactly like what I have. The thing is, I don't have the money (and no insurance) to be tested.
So..I've just gone completely gluten-free. It's only been about a week, and for the first few days (even now) I was still getting the hang of it. Exactly how long should it be before I start feeling even a little better?? I've had a few severely bad attacks in the last week. I know that depending on the damage to your intestines, it could take a while before you feel better. But exactly how long should I give it before I start to think that maybe it's not celiac disease? Any suggestions?? :unsure:
