Excessive Exhaustion, Possibly Cancer Again?

1 1
Celiac Ninja

A lot has happened since I last blogged.

 

There are obivous reasons for me being tired; I have two kids under the age of 3, I'm a celiac, I've got hypoglycemia...yadda yadda.
There are not so obvious reasons; chest pain at night, ache down the arm, lymphnodes swollen up neck (Cat scan confirmed), noduel on thyroid (cat scan confirmed), scar tissue in left cerebral hemisphere (MRI scan).

 

My only concern is the swollen lymph nodes. The experience with lymph nodes was non hodgkins lymphoma.
I seem to be an angry bear when I eat or drink sugary stuff. My neck seems to swell up more too. I get a head ache or migrane or am generally not with it.

 

I had an frightening experience the other night, I don't know how it's related to the majority of the postings, but I woke up 2 hours after sleeping and the bone in my forearm was numb. The skin, the muscle was normal but the done inside was totally numb. The are ached real deep, so I just kept moving it like it were a normal numb foot or hand experience. After about a while it got better so I laid back down. I had been sleeping on my stomach with my head turned to one side. I don't normally sleep like that.

 

So...my diet has changed based on those responses. I'm cutting the sugar way down. The sugar I get is from the Silk brand coconut milk (original flavor). I eat fruit, have organic gluten-free corn flake cereal. I'm just really wowing you now aren't I. lol I sure miss sugar. But it does not make me feel better. Not at all.

 

I'm taking:
gluten-free Women's NutriGold multi vitamins
Swason's copper supplements with vegetable glaze (glaze keeps me from throwing them up)
EnzymeScience Intolerance Complex
Country Life's Ginseng Supreme Complex
Vitamin K supplement when I need it

 

*I need to have a regular exercise. It needs to be every week so that my system has time to work out junk in my lymphnodes. Drinking water and stressing out around the house or sitting on my rear doesn't flush the system like exercise does.

 

Note: it is overwehlming to talk to doctors about my health history. They ask too many questions, I provide too much information. Makes for a depressing day for both people.
There is no instant cure. It takes time, experience, knoweldge and lots of prayer.

 

"Keep showing me Lord, I don't want to fall behind. You are my Great Healer, you'll get me there at the right time. Amen!"

 


With more thought to this entry; I'm going to look up some various things that could be linked to the experiences with sugar and the arm bone falling asleep as well as my exhaustion.
There is a possibility that I have leukemia. I'm appearing to have a majority of the symptoms except the blood test for white blood cell counts and the bone marrow test. I've had a bone marrow test back when I finished cancer treatments at the hospital, they warned me I would need to have a bone marrow transplant if I had to do chemo again. No thanks.

 

I'd like to do what I can that is provided here on the earth and trust God for healing if He desires to heal me. There could be greater reason for me to suffer and bear my cross than just "find a cure! panic..." that's just futial. What's the purpose of a story that's helps educate others and build their faith if everyone found healing from mankind in the hospital? Hospitals have not always existed, neither have doctors. God has. So let's utilize His healing power and seriously show up this world's view of "cure".

Making additions to my supplements today.

 

Celiac's are low in selenium. Selenium is a super antioxidant and can do many more good things for health. I'm taking 100 IU in the morning and 100 IU in the evening. The Vitamin E that helps selenium absorb is in the mail! :D

I am concerned about leukemia because I take iron drops to get my period to come. Otherwaise it is a dry barren wasteland with angry menstral emotions. Not a good combo, there is no relief without the 'flow'. I am consistant and well with only one menstral cycle a month thanks to the hormone creams. I take them as instructed on the containers, they are the best I can get on the market. They make me feel balanced and femenine. Without them I am a nightmare.

 

SO my biggest concern is:

bruising easily

very low on red blood cells (anemia)

white blood cells are obviously not doing their job (celiac)

repeated adrenal fatigue (by two hormone and cortisol tests)

dizziness, nausea (my supplements are food glazed and taken with a meal so it's not them)

depression

ache in my bones and joints

I'm STILL 120 pounds at 5'9" after 2 kids!

 

ARG! Why can't I have boobs too!

 

uh-hem....

 

SO:

MORNING

Breakfast gf certfied

selenium+vitamin E

Intolerance complex

ginseng complex

 

LUNCH

lunch gluten free

multi-vit

intolerance complex

copper

 

EVENING

dinner gf

Intolerance complex

Vitamin E+selenium

 

WATER

Licorice root tea certified gluten free (mine is a digestive aid tea that has licorice root in it so I drink 2 cups morning, 2 cups evening)

 

Going to add later after all this is settled in my system; alpha lipoic acid  BAM! repair those stupid nerves! Tired of the tingling and numbness!

      I was on very low carb diet late summer early Fall into winter.  At Christmas I came off and ate Christmas sweets, cookies, etc, etc... so good. By New Years I began with severe diarrhea with urgency.  Extremely fatigued, my physician started me on doxycycline, no help, put on lomotil, motofen- no help. Then started questran.  No help. Used verbizi, bentyl.  Not much better.  Had egd and bx showed villous atrophy.  But the antibody lab test for celiac was negative.  The dq2 and dq8 genetic testing showed dq2 positive, but dq8 negative. I also had microscopic colitis in the sigmoid at the same time. All other lab work was WNL.  No physician with straight up tell me yes “definitely “ celiac.  I don’t understand why the gluten antibody test was negative, when the biopsy pointed to it.  I’m so confused and wishing the doctors would say yes this is what it is, and if you follow diet, all will be fine.  I’ve been gluten free 4 weeks now.  Feel better, no real diarrhea like before, but would like to get definite answer.  My family has some immunological diseases such as lupus, RA, diabetes, but no celiac.  Anyone else have contradictory findings?

      If I only knew I had celiac disease long before I was finally diagnosed.  Now suffering celiac spru, gastroparesis and severe pancreatic insufficiency, I will never regain the full use of my pancreas.

      I am in the process of learning if the celiac or Lyme Disease was the biggest culprit in damage to my Pancreas.  I'll keep you posted if anyone wants to know.   My sons have been dianosed with Lyme and with the information on this site I've learned my youngest (16) may also have celiac disease.  Why it's taken his whole life for doctors to get it right I will never know but we're here now and gluten free looks to be in his future too.

      The article here relating celiac with pancreas issues is very interesting to me and is something I must look into for my son's welfare.  Thanks for information about what to look for in juvenile's!
      Blessings,
      Trish

    • Some celiacs are seronegative.  Some celiacs never test positive to the screening TTG.  Did you received the complete celiac panel (TTG, EMA and DGP)?  I test positive to only the DGP IgA even in follow-up testing.   Many things can cause villi damage: https://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ However, you probably have celiac disease because you have the genes and you are already improving on the gluten free diet.  Remain gluten free for a year and get retested.  Your doctor may then give you a firm diagnosis.  But you might find that feeling better is all the assurance you need.   Hey, I am the only diagnosed celiac in my family and they are riddled with autoimmune disorders like RA, Lupus, Crohn’s, Thyroiditis, etc.  
    • Eab12, This is a blog post. . . .you might not get much response here. You might want to start this as a thread in the forum section. Eating low carb .. .might of been low enough in gluten to lower your antibodies levels but enough to still attack your villi. . ... and villi don't heal right way anyway. Most people follow up on biopsy at a year to see if villi are still damaged ... and your's obviously still are. .... one confirms the other (often) and doctor's don't want to say absolutely you have celiac without them both being positive. But for you I would say "Positive" is positive. .. but doctor's want both of them to be positive to be sure of your diagnosis. . . but for me I was diagnosed by blood serology only.... this is more common (today) than it i used to be. If either is positive then you can be positive for celiac disease ...doctor's are trying to confirm it is not a "false" positive. See this huffpost article about this topic. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/gluten-what-you-dont-know_n_379089 You might want to have your stomach acid tested too ....being low in it can lead to inflammation. I hope this is helpful but it is not medical advice. Posterboy,

    Thank you all for that insight. Oh! My! Lanta! There is SO much to consider! I really don't know what I would do without y'all!
    She was inspired to master the art of gluten-free pastry and bread because he has celiac disease. She first trained at the Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts ... View the full article
    Thank you for responding. No I have not been tested for celiac disease. My ths free t3 free t4 were all normal. My reverse t3 was a bit high and my tg antibodies were high. Also I have low blood pressure and low testosterone. The whole reason I went to see the doctor in the first place was because I had nausea and acid reflux for no apparent reason which I hve recently discovered is connected to hashimotos. I have just been to a dentist because I have untreated periodontal disease which we suspect may be causing everything. We are in the process of fixing that as well. So far the gluten free diet along with probiotics and L glutamine are helping a lot with the stomach issues.
