In Topic: Polyps? Ana Reasults. Weak Positive?

21 February 2013 - 08:54 PM

I thought celiac, due to positive blood results, but the doctor today seemed to think I was in "normal" range. I'm learning igG results don't mean all that much, its the other tests, which were neg they care about in diagnosing. I am waiting on biopsy results to confirm or deny celiac.
I have a sister with hashimotos and a mom with half thyroid removed and positive autoimmune marker(not really sure what test she took to find out she had a genetic marker) . I also have a very "butterfly" like rash on my face that looks a lot like the lupus rash.
I'm 10 years in from my symptoms being "severe", and I keep getting borderline results back. It's very frustrating.
I also have colon cancer in my family so a polyp is scary!!

In Topic: Clear Liquid Diet. Can I Take My Medicine?

17 February 2013 - 11:16 PM

I have been down this road three times. My directive to limit my diet was shorter at 36 hours. I was told to continue to take my oral meds as usual the day prior to the procedure, but to take none on the morning of the exam. My procedures were all at 8 am. I took the day's doses after arriving back home.

My procedure isn't until 1 pm on Thursday, and I can only have liquids starting Tuesday, with milk of Mag. at 7 am. So it will feel like forever I'm sure.
I'll stick with taking my meds on Tue. and Wed.

In Topic: Pain! Help!

Thanks for they replies. Even though i wouldn't wish this on anyone, it is comforting to know i'm not alone. I actually have a really bad reaction to avocado even though my allergy test came back negative. another weird stomach thing, and the same thing happens when i eat eggs.

I actually got a massage yesterday, and it was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone currently dealing with pain... or even people with out it.
Since my trip to the ER, I've gotten bumped to "emergency status" so I will get to have my scopy's this week. There definitely has to be something better than a month wait for diagnosis.

Thanks for replying. I ended up in the ER on Thursday night/Friday morning with severe pain so I officially warrant one of the emergency spots at my GI office. I will get my endoscopy and colonoscopy done this Thursday. I think i'm more worried about clear liquids and laxatives for two days then the procedure itself.
I don't know for sure which celiac tests were done. I was given the results over the phone without prior knowledge of what they were so it's hard for me to understand what tests were actually done. I got a printout of my allergy tests, which all came back normal. At least next time i see someone, even the NP, i'll have all my test results so if i do have an autoimmune i won't feel like i need to defend myself.

I wasn't impressed with the NP I saw at the GI office. She told me "gurgle" sounds are normal, people just need to deal with it. Then I described my symptoms and she would say,"you need to see your primary about that, you need to see your gynecologist if your having lower back pain and lower abdominal pain."
I Thought if anyone would understand, it would be someone in a specialists office, but she made me feel like a hypochondriac. I don't want to go to someone who doesn't see my body as a whole. You can break a toe and throw your whole body off, let alone an autoimmune disease. Closed mindedness is what has kept me in pain for a decade.

On another note, I woke up today and my "butterfly" facial rash is back. This is more indicative of lupus, but don't other autoimmune cause this too?

Also, has anyone else had this reaction to eggs? And if so, were you able to eat them after you got your diet and medications right?
