Testing For Lupus And Other Blood Clotting Disorders?

05 April 2012 - 02:41 PM

So lately I've had so much going on and it's just beginning to be too much. So in the past 6 months- benign PVCs/PACs and possible SVT, celiac, ovarian cysts, and now possibly lupus or some other issue. Went to dermatologist because I go yearly for mole/freckle checks and she noticed a lacy looking like rash that's on my ankle and creeps up a bit. It has been there for 3 years and comes on especially after showering. She said she's running my c and r proteins and antiphosolipid (?) and testing for lupus and other blood clotting disorders. Said I may need to be on a baby aspirin daily. So... Haven't gotten blood drawn yet but definitely nervous and just feeling overwhelmed. I don't know much about the disorders she told me but from what I've read it's scared me silly. Anyone else have this lace-like skin in certain places and was it lupus or something else???

After New Diagnosis Plus Additional Food Allergies Should I See A Nutritionist?

09 February 2012 - 02:28 PM

Newly diagnosed celiac with multiple food allergies such as: all grains, pineapple, all nuts except almonds and cashews, corn, garlic, onions, pepper, cinnamon, coffee, tea, cocoa, certain fish and shellfish. I have ALOT of digestive problems obviously and a small hiatal hernia as well as heart palpitations that have decreased since removing allergies- although I've been getting new funky beats. My questions are 1. Anyone see a dietician to work out a good diet 2. Anyone have a decrease in allergies once their gut started to heal? Im hoping to not continue to be so allergic to everything. 3. Heart palpitations- how many of you suffer and how many have seen a decrease? Thanks

How Long Will It Take To Feel Better?

I was just newly diagnosed and have been on and off gluten prior to diagnosis. Just wondering when everyone started to feel 100%

Heart Palpitations

09 February 2012 - 08:54 AM

Hi I'm new here and also diagnosed with Hiatal Hernia. I've been getting palpitations for some time now, and have been cleared by the doctor as having begnin PVCs and PACs. But lately I've been getting a new symptom of boomboomboomboom then regular rythm. It's almost like 2-5 fast beats in a row with some irregular beats or flutters before or after or sometimes not at all just normal rythm picks back up. It's been scary! With my new celiac diagnosis I've noticed a decline in these beats but still getting them around ovulation until my period starts or ends- it goes from sometimes 1x month to 1-4x daily on and off during the times I mentioned above. My question is for all those suffering are ur beats like mine and diagnosed as afib or svt? My nurse thinks svt but hasn't caught it on a moniter yet. And have you seen a decrease or complete cure from them when u removed all gluten and cc? I was just diagnosed 2 weeks ago.

Allergies Diminish After Awhile?

03 February 2012 - 06:50 PM

I was wondering if anyone who has multiple allergies has had their allergies disappear after being on a gluten free diet for awhile? I'm allergic to all grains, shellfish, some legumes etc. I'm hoping that once my gut heals my allergies will dimish a bit.
