In Topic: Hashimotos, Celiac And Now Muscle Pain!

27 November 2012 - 05:37 AM

Sounds like a lot of us have very similar stories! I was diagnosed with celiac and then hashimoto's a few months later. Once I started synthroid I started getting AWFUL joint pain. My doctor was suspecting rhumatoid arithritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, ect. He switched me to Armour and took a lot of blood tests. Once my armour dose was correct the pain pretty much went away and all my blood work came back negative for the other autoimmune disorders (my RA factor was borderline though so hopefully it stays low). Unfortunatly there are so many other things that could be causing the joint pain (meds, other food allergies, other autoimmune problems) and it seems like we all have to sort out what's causing it. Out of curiosity how is your hashimotos being treated? Good luck getting it all figured out!

In Topic: Having Guests Over

Thank you for all the reassurance! I've been sitting here today feeling like I was a jerk. I tried to explain why it was an issue and the possibility of contamination and I had about 6 people looking at me wide eyed and like I was crazy. The sign on the door is a great idea; I had not thought of doing that. Just like your keyboard Adalaide I was having visions of crumb covered remote controls!

I use a L-Glutamine powder as well. I don't take it as often as I should but if I suspect I've been glutened I'll take it.

In Topic: Everything Revolves Around Food!

Thanks for all the tips! I wish I could drive because I would have a cooler packed with food. The problem I'm having is that I fly and haven't been checking a bag. I guess I could start checking a cooler with my food for the week in it then just make sure the hotels have a fridge. The tip about needing a fridge for medicine is great!

I just got back last night from another work trip and I brought "GoPicnics" with me. It wasn't great but they do not need to be refridgerated. I think most of my frusteration is just from how often I'm traveling. I thought it was going to be about 2 days a month and for 7 weeks in a row it's 2, 3, or 4 days a week! And I'm not going to a normal city where I can get stuff. If anyone is familiar with south south Louisiana where all the gas and oil companies operate that is where I'm going... I need to start stopping by a grocery store before I leave New Orleans and pack a disposable cooler.

And on the beef jerky thing- I make sure to check the ingredients every time. Even the same type/brand can have wheat in it. I find "safe" jerky about 50% of the time.

Thanks again everyone!

In Topic: Coping With Celiac With Dresses!

24 October 2012 - 06:53 AM

When my stomach is bloated I wear dresses too! I can't stand to have a pair of pants buttoned over my belly; makes it feel so much worse! At home I like my baggy sweat pants. I have 1 pair that is comfortable and I can't find them any more.
