In Topic: Got My New Red Apple Lipsticks In The Mail Today!

13 November 2013 - 11:53 AM

I have a ton of RAL products (eyeshadows too!). I adore every one of them. My favs are Ruby Slippers and Strawberry Lips, with Secrets being a close 3rd place. The glosses are great too. You can't go wrong with RAL.


In Topic: Best Gluten Free Bread?

08 October 2013 - 08:06 AM

I've tried Udi's and Schar. I really like the Udi's but something in the ingredients gives me gas. My new discovery is Goodbye Gluten bread. My local Wegman's started carrying it. It's shelf stable and doesn't need to be toasted. I've tried the white bread and it's fantastic. It's a bit crumbly but not too bad. I've had turkey, PBJ on it. It's been sitting on my counter now for a week and it's still good.

In Topic: Canker Sores

18 September 2013 - 09:53 AM

Prescription orabase pastes work well. My PCP gave me an RX but your dentist could too. Just dob it on with a Qtip before bed. It's gritty and gross tasting/feeling but it does help cut down the pain and longevity of a nasty sore.


In Topic: Gluten Challenge And Now A Rash...coincidence Right?

05 September 2013 - 07:37 AM

I just wanted to update this in case anyone else happens upon this thread in a search. I ended my gluten challenge that very day figuring it wasn't worth the symptoms, especially if this was related. The rash lasted another 2 or 3 days. The joint pain lasted about 4 or 5. The joint swelling in my fingers and feet lasted a solid week. I also noticed around this time that my cheeks were red and it would come and go. The red cheeks (as stated in my other post) did not happen at the same time as my rash. My kids and husband never came down with anything before or following this episode for me.

 

So my follow up with my PCP was about a month after this episode and I mentioned it to her and said, I know, it's probably a coincidence and it was viral and just happened to occur during my gluten challenge. I was surprised when she responded, no, she doesn't think it was coincidence at all and that rashes, flushed face, joint pain and swelling are common responses to food intolerance and/or allergy. I was surprised because while she is quite celiac knowledgeable in many regards she also didn't believe in referring me for an endoscopy based on negative serology and doesn't find genetic testing at all helpful. So she didn't think it was Fifth's Disease virus at all and has solidified my diagnosis as NCGS.

I use the Cerave AM and PM and really like them.
