thanks to you all for letting me Wine or Wodka or Wat-ever! Lol.....I never could drink....wish I could. I do plan on firing my Dr. office in total. They have been rude on a number of occaisions to top it all off. As soon as I find a decent replacement, and get a grip on this new information.
I have started physical therapy....working first on the neck pain/issues, before addressing the many other areas of pain. Seems I can't have anti-inflammatories or Nsaids...as they are triggers for the big D with the colitis. I've known for a long time now that I can't take them....they make me ill. (Duh). The therapist said that no wonder the other meds that the PA had me try didn't work......(Duh again). I can't wait to fire them and tell them why! I have some fun fanatasies about that....but I promise not to be "too" cruel and sarcastic. (Assume that the word "too" is a relative term).
Hugs to you all, and great health and happiness in the coming year!

Gee whiz Lo! Hoping you can get some relief from some of this! The fun sometimes just never ends. Sorry to hear that the saga continues....but glad that you have some answers. Hang in there!

Checkin in again. I'm tempted to start reading back....but I KNOW better than to do that.
Update about me: Many of my Celiac symptoms refuse to disappear. I'm ready to fire the NPA that I'm seeing. The one I had and loved has moved on. This one apparently feels I'm in need of "counseling", and that if I take drugs to help me sleep I'll feel, oh so much better, and that I MUST be cheating on my diet (does she think I WANT to be deathly ill again????) Finally, I went back to the gastroenterologist that had diagnosed Celiac for me (4 years ago now), had a consult and colonoscopy. I have microscopic colitis....which explains a lot! I also went to a second rhuematologist (the first one took a blood test, declared that I did NOT have arthritis, threw up her hands and said there was nothting that she could do for me.....ehhh!). THIS one spent more than an hour with me....sent me for xrays, and lo and behold I have degenerative arthritis, calcium deposits and bone spurs. Her big concern is that the (oh, brain-fart! I can't think of what they're called)...where the nerves pass through the spine......have narrowed and are causing a lot of pinching of nerves. Explains the pain, the neuropathy....so much. I'm currently waiting for my next appts with both doctors for where to go from here. Nsaids that might help with arthritis will cause trouble with the colitis.
Anyway...thanks for giving me a place to whine and cry. I'm still working, though on many, many days I don't know if I can get through a day. Perhaps now I can address some of this......
Thanks most of all for being right here in my computer when I need you, and for needing me, too.

Hi everybody! Haven't been here in ages. :( Caught up a few pages, but not far back, knowing that I could get totally sucked in and lost forever.
Joess....I LOVE, love, love the new babies!
I'm glad that I see some of you on FB, and so am not totally out of the loop. Hoping that you are all relatively well. Hugs all 'round!
