In Topic: Wisconsin Celiacs Unite!

Hi fellow 'Sconnies :)

I am from Green Bay as well.

Still getting used to being gluten free - and soy, lactose free.

The Festival grocery stores in Green Bay have a nice selection of gluten-free foods - as well as Woodman's supermarkets - their aisle #18 is Huge !!!!

My son lives a few blocks away from the Whole Foods Market in Madison - I am jealous !!!!

Good to see more Wisconsinites out there - and I look forward to getting to know you all better :)

Hugs, Nancy

PS: Frenchiemama - I LOVE your Frenchies !!! Beautiful dogs. How many do you have ??? Lucky person ;)

In Topic: Let's Help The Fm People On Fibrohugs

Hi Mary Ellen :)

I have visited the site you mention - and there is not a whole lot of research type info there, I agree.

I am new to gluten intolerance, but not new to FM - have had it for 20 years.

It certainly was made worse by the gluten intolerance, and I am fighting every day to regain some of my strength - one day at a time ;)

There is a very good site that is filled with research, and celiac disease, as well as gluten sensitivity is talked about often. Lots of research from leading MD'sd in the FM world .... and a VERY active message board. The message board is very active - and messages are answered many times as fast as you post them.
LOT's of members with celiac and gluten issues.

You can do searches for medical research, as well as searches on the message board.

I don't know the rules here well enough yet ---- I hope it is alright that I post the web addy ????


May be helpful for those of you who also suffer from FM ???

I have referred many people from there to this site - they were so thankful for all of the wonderful research here at celiac.com :)


In Topic: Regarding Magnesium Injections

13 July 2005 - 08:22 AM

Hi Donna :)

Just a quick thank you - again - for all the info regarding Mag injections.

I pick up all of my "little vials" today - 500 mg IM every 4-5 days.

We'll see if that amount is enough to cover the awful headaches and muscle spasm. Sure hope so !!!

At least my internist is willing to try - and that means so much. A good doctor never stops learning, I think.

He looked at all the info you gave me, and ordered the gluten free med.

Hope you are doing well - and that the heat and humudity isn't too bad. FM does NOT like barometer changes, or high dew points. Our barometer has been going up and down for the past 2 weeks - humidity and dew points as if this were Florida - YUCK :angry:

I truely wait for autumn - sounds crazy - but autumn in Wisconsin is the best I ever feel.

Thanks again, Donna ............

In Topic: Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism ?

12 July 2005 - 11:29 AM

Taneil ....... I was pleasently surprised to read your post about how you handle your hypothyroidism.

I am going to look into the Thyrophin PMG - can you tell me did you get it through a health food store ? Can you tell me a little more about the product ??

My internist is thinking that the longer I am gluten free - the autoimmune attack on my thyroid may well stop.

I have tried Synthroid, and ended up in the ER with a pulse rate of 170, and lots of chest pain - definately NOT for me.

I have also tried Armour - constant loose stools. YUCK - I don't want to ge there again - just recovering from constant diarrhea !!! :blink:

I like your thoughts on Synthroid actually shutting down the thyroid, and natural support perhaps being best for some.

My TSH is 5.1 - so I am having hypo symptoms - but the thyroid meds seem to throw me into "hyper" mode.

SO much valuable info here - thanks for sharing.

Any further info you could share about the natural product would be appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance ..................

In Topic: Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism ?

Thanks for your responses :)

Susan .... I have the constant, unrelenting headaches too. Magnesium injections have helped tremendously, so that the severity is not as bad - but the frequency has not changed.

I don't get the migraines as frequently since the start of the Mag IM's - before I was having "auras" almost daily, and it was hell !!

I know that many people who are hypo can have a lot of problem with headaches, and severe muscle pain ...... ???

Barb - thanks for your input on Vit D/Mag/Calcium. I have done a lot of research on Vit D deficiency - it is scarey what this deficiency has been linked to.

I am taking "baby steps" right now - adding and uping the minerals and vitamins as my body adjusts to them. I am not like a "normal" person - who can just take a handful of vitamins/minerals and go about their day !!!

I may try adding some malic acid - hoping my stomach likes it :)

Thanks again - there is a wealth of info here - and sharing like this is so valuable.

Good health wishes ......
