In Topic: Testing In Canada

27 November 2013 - 07:30 PM

Thanks for the replies. No one in my family has been tested for celiac, just me and thats because of my "ibs", stomach aches and fatigue amongst other symptoms made me decide to finaly get tested. If the tests come back negative, i know enough from a previous year of being gluten free that i feel so much better that i feel like a biopsy doesnt matter to me. I just dont want to go gluten-free again, only to find that i bave to have a biopsy for some specific reason, thus having me do the gluten challenge all over again.

I react within 24 hours, BUT if its a liquid, its usually while I'm still drinking (ie beer=headache instantly).

In Topic: Eczema

06 November 2013 - 04:12 PM

I have had sensitive skin (rashes, itchy) off and on for most of my life.  I am not sure if it was eczema or not, but mine are typically pretty itchy.  Since going gluten free (spring of 2012), I have not had any skin issues.  As I am writing this, I am realizing that I usually get really dry skin around my neck at this time of year and I have had no issues this year.  Maybe gluten-free is helping this too!


I also had pityriasus rosea many years ago - and that was NOT FUN!   I went in thinking the doc was going to tell me that I had dry skin on my back and send me away.  Instead, she rushed out to get a book to show me that I looked 'just like the picture'.  It was not very comforting :)

I showed my doctor the rash and instantly he backed away with wide eyes with a 'wtf is that' look. Of course, I knew what it was before hand (thanks google!) and was hoping he could offer some suggestions for it to get better but he just told me to suck it up until it runs its course.  I just remember my skin peeling off like a bad burn and the majority of that rash was my inner thighs, right where the inseam of your pants are. It was horrible. I can only imagine what shingles would be like because pityriasis was brutal!

In Topic: Amazon <dot> Ca

I feel your pain. I'm in Ontario and noticed the shipping is redonk. I wanted to  buy some make up for theatre work since I can't get it anywhere, but amazon dot ca had it, but it was going to cost $30 for a $25 pot of makeup. Then I saw the fine print that they couldn't even ship to Canada after all.  Argh.
