Topics I've Started

Red Rash On Forearms

15 July 2009 - 07:34 AM

I posted this under someone else's topic in another catergory so I thought I would repost it here.

I am dealing with a crazy rash on my arms. Mine are tiny red raised bumps that are forming a huge raised patch on both of my forearms and are now extending up past my elbows. They are extremely itchy. I don't have blisters that I can see, but when I scratch them I can feel a watery liquid. Even though it has raised bumps my skin feels slick like everything is burned together. I have had them since last Wednesday and no medicine is working on it. I suspected my daughter as having celiac and she was diagnosed with DH in May. I went gluten free with her to make it easier on her. We both ended up getting glutened last week. She has a few bumps, I have a ton. Any idea what this could be. Thanks, Claudia

My daughter was diagnosed with gastroparesis. We are still waiting on the celiac panel to come back. I don't think it will be positive because she has been gluten free since Oct. What can you tell me about gastroparesis. They want us to put her on some medication that you can only get from Canada since Reglan makes her sick.


My Daughter's Symptoms. What Do You Think?

29 November 2008 - 10:59 PM

Hi. During this summer my daughter started feeling nauceus. She also was having sinus problems. In August she started vomiting after eating and had heartburn. Her doctor was out so she saw another one. The new doctor said it was a sinus infection and Gerd. She can't tell when she is hungry and says she is always full. She had diarrhea, but now is always constipated. I took her back to her original doc and he thought it was her gallbladder and sent her to the gastro. She lost 10 lbs during this time and has not regained it. She weighs 125 now. She had an endoscopy in Sept. and her gastro said she has too much acid in her stomach and is a little inflamed but no ulcers or anything else. He did not look for celiac. Another doctor ordered an ultrasound to check her liver, gallbladder, kidneys, and pancreas. All fine. All the doctors said she is very pale, but blood work is neg. for anemia. She wants to sleep a lot because she is always tired. She also is cold all the time. Her doctor tested her thyroid. It was normal. He tested her for H. Pylori. It was negative. She gets sick when she eats these foods wheat, apples, bananas, pineapples, oranges, milk and sugary foods. I asked her doctor about food allergies or intolerances, he said she should have outgrown that by now. She is 17. I took her off gluten in Sept. because I didn't know she needed to continue eating it before being tested for Celiac. She felt a little better, but is still nauceus. Gastro put her on Reglan, Nexium, Levison, and Phenegran. She was already on Zyrtec for allergies. She gets dark circles around her eyes. She is always complaining about pain in her left upper side and is always belching and has a lot of gas, bloating, pms. The new doctor is stumped and wants her to see another gastro. She has missed a lot of school because of the vomiting. I am not sure what to do now. She won't take the nexium because she says it doesn't help her. Any ideas. Sorry this is so long. Thanks in advance.

I forgot to mention that her first doctor that she had when she was little used to measure her spine because he said she wasn't growing properly but he chalked it up to her being small because I am short. I am 5' 2". She is 5' 3.

My mom also has IBS and other problems and her mom had stomach problems and Osteoporosis.

My question is should she continue with the gluten free diet or do you think it is something else?
