Topics I've Started

Chest Pains?

12 June 2011 - 04:56 PM

My sister has been having chest pains for several months. She has no digestive complaints, but she was diagnosed with diabetes 22 years ago. 5 1/2 years ago she had half her thyroid removed. She also takes antidepressants. A couple of months ago, she underwent a stress test which found nothing.
Our grandfather has celiac disease. Because I've been looking into my own symptoms, it has been on her mind lately, and she feels that the pains tend to coincide with eating gluten. Has anyone ever had gluten related chest pain?

What Is Normal?

12 June 2011 - 08:05 AM

I'm not sure of the correct place to pose a question about everyone else.

Kind of gross question:
Is it "normal" to have frequent, almost daily, constipation with cramps that rapidly transforms into extreme urgency and diarrhea?
Is it "normal" for this diarrhea to involve such things as undigested food, malabsorbed fat, mucus, and blood?
Do these things happen when there is nothing wrong with a person?
Was I lying when I told my daughter that she had to have blood work because most peoples tummies do NOT hurt everyday and diarrhea is NOT supposed to be the normal form of bowel movement.

Seriously, can we have all these issues without there being anything wrong with us?

Soap

I have always had an 'allergy' to soap. I've never had it checked out. Every time I bathe, I get this itchy rash all over, mostly legs arms and belly. The absolute worst is dial bar soap. That is so bad that if I shower after it has been used I practically scratch my skin off. Could this be a gluten thing? If so, what ingredients should I be weary of?

How Long On Gluten For A Positive Test?

03 June 2011 - 07:53 AM

I finally found an affordable estimate for testing. Now I just need to get my doctor to send in an order. How long do I need to go back onto a gluten heavy diet to get a positive result?
