"house" Episode?

Recommended Posts

I don't know if the talked about episode has aired yet. If so I have missed it.

Watching ET-Tonight, they mentioned the episode of "House" with a mother with a mysterious disease.

Could this be the one. I don't watch it very much. Anyone know any thing about this?

Karen,

I hate to burst your bubble, but I just checked fox.com and the House episode says:

"the team tries to diagnose a working mother who suffers from flailing fits"

I know that I have had those before, but I don't think that is a symptom of celiac disease, is it? Unless you count the flailing fits I have thrown today over those freaking McD french fries!! :P

It's hard to say. I can't see the show using the "typical" celiac disease case. Maybe seizures due to celiac, or neurological disorders caused by celiac, something along those lines......

I just wish they would tell us which one it was!!!!!

Flailing fits seem to be a daily episode for me. I would like to see one with an out of body experience with some one with Celiac. One with vision of a double cheeseburger (nah, freg that one). I think eating at a five star french restaurant and not worrying about a darn thing. I would be gazzing into my husbands eyes, knowing that we had a room at the Four Seasons (and going back twenty years when I actually had hormones and anti-D weren't circulating). This was just a trip back in time when we used to laugh with each other.

I digress, sorry, can't remember the thread. Personal issues here, I think. Anyone else like, PM. I need some pep talk. :(

This is a thread of it's own. I know, lets start a "Womens Only Thread"....ooops, sorry, I guess that's a really bad suggestion. :ph34r: Been there done that and gone. :)

LOL Lisa!

Alas, tonight's episode was not the celiac one. Just a stupid woman who was taking fertility drugs to make hubby happy by trying to have another child, yet all along packing herself up with Ritalin and birth control pills to MAKE SURE she DIDN'T get pregnant!!

Darn! I have to admit though, I am now officially hooked on this show. I absolutely LOVE his sense of humour!!! He cracks me up!

I continue to marvel at how well House has played this market by once mentioning (I guess I only heard about it here) they might one day do a celiac disease episode. :o

As far as I can figure with extensive research, the "celiac episode" is a rumor started by a Celiac on the Fox's house message board as "a cool idea". It then ballooned off into rumorville, and here we are.

I am a huge house addict, its the only thing we watch where BF is not allowed to change the channels during commercials ( I get very upset) and believe me, I looked. It would be cool, but I don't think we can count on it.

Even if the Celiac storyline is just a rumor, it got me watching the show--and now it's one of my favorites! If they were looking for more viewers, they got me :D

Hi Guys

I'm the one that started the thread back in early fall. We had a news broadcast on our local

Fox network talking about the show 'House' having a celiac episode coming up somtime soon. They interviewed a local woman who had celiacs and did a pretty good job explaining the disease. I have practically religiously watched the show so that I can see the episode. I've only missed a couple. So far no eposode. <_< I keep checking the site but see nothing about it. <_< Maybe I will email the Fox network and see if they know.

Yes....It is a great show! I can just imagine how they will act with a celiac. Probably saying it's all in the head or somthing.

Good news about the infamous House/Celiac episode! I had mentioned to my mom awhile ago about the possibility of an episode because she loves that show and I told her to watch out for it.

My mom gets the Harrisburg, PA GIG newsletter and shares interesting bits with me. In the most recent H-burg GIG newsletter, and they said that House will air a Celiac episode on May 9th at 9. Interestingly enough, it said that GIG served as a consultant for the show---so, hopefully, it will be accurate information! I am excited to see it!
