Jimmy's Egg- Unofficially Glutenfree Friendly

17 November 2012 - 08:46 AM

The one in Lawton OK,I love them now!
The manager was AWESOME, he actually is the one that took my phone order- had no problem helping me decide what was gluten-free. The eggs have no additives- just plain eggs with whatever you order in them.
When I got there to pick it up, I noticed they had several separate grills- one doing eggs, one hash browns, one pancakes, etc. this may be because they were busy- I have no idea if they always do this and I am making no promises on behalf of Jimmy's Eggs, of course always check yourself.
I had the vegetable omelet with cheese, and a fruit cup for the side. It was DELICIOUS!!! This is 3 hours later and I feel great too, not one peep from my tummy :)

Just FYI to anyone that lives around a JE :)

Aaaaannnnnd Another "rash Pics"

08 November 2012 - 06:23 AM

Good morning all!

I finally figured out how to get pics here from my phone. Soooo here are my pics if anyone would like to share an opinion.
Ok a little FYI info...
1. Rash didn't start until about 5 years ago, and this is about the 10th time I've had it.
2. These pics are 10 days into the rash, so I know they look very mild but I forgot to take pics at the beginning
3. This particular episode was set off by Ramen noodles, AKA the devils dinner
4. I was hesitant to share the one of my chest- this isn't how they really look- before the picture I was showing my daughter how the little blisters are fluid filled, so popping them- turning them into this blotchy mess for the camera.
5. My head and ears and butt itch the most, yet no rash. Weird.

My View On Diagnosis, My Personal Situation

06 November 2012 - 06:05 AM

I personally do not plan on receiving a formal physician's diagnosis for celiac disease.
I am 10000000% I have celiac disease, as well as my daughter. We also do not have insurance. When she goes to college in 18 months, we will both have insurance, but we will be healed enough by then that surely any tests will be negative, and I'm not going to live in misery again for however long just to produce a positive test result! For me, the diagnosis is just not important. Treatment is our lifestyle change at home, not really affected by a Dr agreeing.

Anyone else in this situation or feel the same?

Rash Relief Help?

05 November 2012 - 08:34 PM

Hi all. First I'd like to say I am new to celiac and tomorrow is my first day gluten free.
Can someone help me with tips/pointers on itching relief until the rash subsides? This is the worst I've ever had it, it's on my trunk and butt and arms/neck. It's not as awful as some pics I've seen but the little microblisters are there, and I'm itching EVERYWHERE not just where I have rash. The most annoying itch is my ears, outer part, and scalp. Sometimes wrists/hands. I feel a general "tickle" all day and it's driving me NUTS.
Sooooo.... Yes I've tried Benadryl (can only take it at night because I'm a healthcare provider during the day). Calamine didn't help much either I tried it last night. Anything y'all DH veterans can recommend?

Also.... How long after refraining from gluten does the rash usually get better? I'm miserable :(
