I hope it's nothing too serious. (hugs)

I know thyroid issues can mess with your heart rate and cause palpitations. Maybe that's something to look at too? Just throwing a thought out there.


Hang in there. I think those of us who research health issues and actively search out health solutions have the problem that we read what COULD be wrong and scare ourselves with worst case scenarios. We have read how bad things can be, but we usually are not the worst case out there.  I was personally pretty convinced that I had lupus, but it turned out to be celiac complications - so still annoying but not as life changing.  Recently I was worried about acromegaly as my growth hormones were way off the charts but it seems to have been a blip of some sort, and I still have no idea why it was high.


Chances are it's not a life threatening thing.  Try not to worry too much right now when you don't know what it is.... I know, I know.  That's much easier said than done, isn't it?


Hang in there.

I was just curious if you could share what was going on that you thought you had lupus but it was celiac related?  The reason I ask is that I was diagnosed with Celiac in April of 2012 but my mom refused to get tested because "she's never had any problems with her stomach" which I tried explaining that doesn't have anything to do with it but she wouldn't listen.  Now she's breaking out in splotchy redness all over her face - big red spots - and the dermatologist told her she might have lupus.  She noticed that when she ate bread it was worse so I told her to watch what she was eating and when the break outs occurred - but then she avoided bread for a day and still had a break out so now she doesn't thing bread/gluten has anything to do with it.  I am insisting she get tested for Celiac because she might have it or DH.  They are going to do a full work up but they leaning towards Lupus.  Anything you can share would be helpful for me to share with her.  I appreciate it!  

In Topic: I Need Help Dealing

I had a really hard time with my diagnosis so I am sorry to hear that you are as well.  I was diagnosed in April of 2012 and went through a divorce in September of 2012 so was trying to deal with two of the hardest things in my life in the same year.  I was talking with a psychologist once a week and he helped me a lot with the divorce but not really with the Celiac diagnosis.  I think maybe because he just didn't understand it and I was educating him?  I found this board though and it was a lifesaver.  Anytime I have a question or am feeling down I come here and can usually find the answer and/or support.  I think it helps to talk to people that are going through the same thing as you because they understand the feelings.  The first year is definately the hardest - it will get better.  It took me about a year to really get a good grasp on the diet.  Now it's second nature and I actually can't imagine ever eating Gluten again.  It will take a while to start feeling better too so that messes with your head because it's depressing when you aren't seeing results - It just takes time - hang in there.  Best of luck.   Hope this helped.

Hubbs made some dip for "The Game" He went out and got the gooey cheese, some burger , used some of my canned Salsa and Pickled Peppers. I looked at the can of gooey cheese and yup corn in it... There was a bowl right by me! I said you guys don't know how bad I want to dig into this! I am moving it out of my reach! Lol Hubbs was nice and sent it home with the kids. Whew!! I was sick the day before. I was going to make something I could eat and share at game time. But it just didn't happen. Just a lil something I miss!! I handled it tho :)

I saw this post from Gluten Free Mama on Saturday and tried the corn salsa and spincach & artichoke dips and they were delicious & easy!  Maybe you can try to make something next time that you can eat as well!  Recipes: http://glutenaway.bl...ps-for-any.html  Good Luck!
