In Topic: A Question About Malabsorption:

22 October 2012 - 07:21 PM

I have a doctors appointment for tomorrow actually. I've asked to be checked for any nutrition deficiencies. Ir got various other symptoms going in, that I'm seeing a specialist for. However, the area I live in doesnt offer any physicians who are in the know about celiac or gluten intolerance. My family doctor actually told me not to come in if I already knew I had an aversion to gluten. I say self diagnose because I experimented with the diet, and when I' try to eat gluten now, I get very I'll. I'm nursing right now and mentally can not handle to go back on gluten for one month+ just to get a positive test result. I'm trying my best to get referred for a biopsy, but the area I live in makes this hard. So, right now all I can do is eat a gluten free diet ad try to make sure Im absorbing the nutrient I need to be healthy. financially, getting this all sorted out seems nearly impossible.

In Topic: Old Hag Syndrome / Sleep Paralysis

I'm currently 21, and during the ages of 13-16, this syndrome plagued me. I just found out about my gluten sensitivity/ possible celiac about 1 month ago. I suspect Ice had it for several years, by looking back at all of my symptoms. I don't know how they'd be connected, but I know eating gluten can cause neurological symptoms. Sleep paralysis is easily the most terrifying think that's ever happened to me- I'm sorry for anyone that has to go through that.

Also, are there any links between kidney dysfunction and celiac? Even though my urine looks good, I'm still having pain there. It's very frustrating.

In Topic: I Need Advice On How To Get An Accurate Diagnosis

So, yesterday after being gluten free for almost 1.5 months (aside from 1 accident), I decided to eat some gluten and see what happens- To see if I got really sick like before, so that I could be certain. I called my doctor and asked if he'd write me an order for the necessary blood test. He says, "well, if you feel better off of gluten, just don't eat the stuff!", "why would you want to pay to get tested if you know your sensitive to it?" I suppose this is true to a certain degree, and I really can't afford the tests right now. But, I need to know, just in the case that there's another problem going on. Anywho, to break the gluten fast I ate a bowl of gluten containing cereal, and a piece of sourdough. Within 20 minutes, I was in the worst mood of my life. I just felt angry, anxious, and very irritable. I felt in a fog. I did feel bloated, and I had diarrhea today, but no serious, unbearable bloating like before when I accidentally consumed gluten. Is this normal? What should I do about getting tested? Another symptom I didn't mention is colon pain. I had an ultrasound done to make sure it wasn't my ovary, so the only other thing it could be is my colon. It feels especially painful today. For the past month it has just felt inflamed, and sometimes the pain even goes down my leg. Do you think a colonoscopy would reveal any damage? My naturopathic doctor said it could take 6 months for any inflammation to go away.

In Topic: What Did I Eat Wrong?

19 October 2012 - 08:13 AM

I know it's advised to eat at home in beginning, but lunch date planned months ago. Had my blood work thins am (already decided going gluten free today-not willing to do biopsies when it doesn't change treatment). So I had Mexican buffet-lettuce, cheese, refried beans, beef with onions, chicken with onions/peppers, tortilla chips. That's it other than diet coke. Any ideas?

I had a very bad reaction to restaurant corn chips not too long ago. They're fried with flour tortillas. And, I highly doubt that they're made of JUST corn.
