In Topic: Confused...

Hello Shan,

Boy, I haven't been here in a long time! I lived here when I was first diagnosed. So here's the thing...... it seems really sudden but as you get well things will go away that you had gotten used to or had attributed to other things. You attribute much to your weight that could be celiacs. Your weight itself could be celiacs. Those allergy headaches, those sore feet, the pain in your lower back.......

I was over eating because I wasn't absorbing nutrition. I was always hungry.
I had allergy headaches because I was eating things I was allergic to and because I was low on vitamin D.
I had pains in my feet because I was low in magnesium and had started developing neuropathy.
I was having pains in my lower back (mild cramping) because I was eating dairy which I found I am also allergic to.

There's more but the reason I stopped coming here was because I got tired of hearing myself whine LOL and needed to get on with feeling better.

So soak up all the knowledge, start feeling better! :)

I'm not saying this is what you have, but worth ruling it out since it stands to reason that it could keep elevating your level if untreated.


That was my first thought also. The doc didn't seem to think so (until it hits 100). I think he should wear clothes pins on his nipples until he agrees it's time to treat. That way we can share the pain!

And he should eat nothing but chicken breast, green beans and organic spring mix, get lots of sleep, do yoga, work 45 hours a week and run a household full of teenagers and pets. You know just so the clothes pins can be on his last nerve like mine!

Thanks for your reply. I'll call the doctor's office and see if I can talk them into it.

In Topic: Periods, Whats The Connection

I always assumed it was the same hormones that tell your body to empty before going into labor. I have the opposite problem, I tend not to go the week before and have to be diligent about my diet (no corn, cereal ect.) that week. So right when I'm carbo craving I have to cut back or use laxatives.
