Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Christine - 10 Advils are WAY too much. The maximum you should take in at one time is 4 -- that is 800 mg, what the doctor's prescribe. You can only take that safely three times per day.

Do you have a bite guard? Have you seen a dentist who specializes in TMJ? That can prevent a lot of arthritic changes in itself. If you have rheumatoid, it's difficult, but it does help. If it is simply osteoarthritis, then it would DEFINITELY help. Both of my kids, after getting their braces taken off, suffered with TMJ dysfunction . . . they went to a dentist who made impressions of their teeth, put them on a special axis, then found the optimum bite for them . . . he gave them a bite guard which, at first, was just a HUGE chunk of plastic, it looked like! Then, they went in 1 time per week for 24 weeks, and he slowly ground down the bite guard until they were at their perfect bite. He then gave my son a night guard for teeth clenching and grinding.

Also, don't want to imply that anything is "in your head", because it IS NOT. However, have you thought about seeing a physician (even psychiatrist) about anxiety issues . . . most often, that's what grinders have. Clenchers tend to be worriers. It was funny --when I was practicing, I could tell by the jaw muscles which patients were clenchers vs. grinders.

Has anyone taught you self-release techniques for the muscles in your jaws? There are positional release techniques that are FANTASTIC for TMJ. In fact, when I first took the course, I was a student and thought it was "out there" . . . it was the stuff that I used the most. Even if you can't find someone to teach you, you can order books on positional release through amazon .com . . . some used ones pretty cheaply. It is difficult to do it yourself -- -I will tell you that. If you can go to a MANUAL physical therapist who works with TMJ, they will be able to teach it to you well.

Good luck to you . . . please take care of yourself. . . . Lynne

Yep,it's Tenerife (it's an island that belongs to Spain,but is off the coast of Africa)

Hubby is very content in his Oh so magical place now :lol:

Nikki, how fabulous Spain. I am so jealous. You will have to share every detail with us when you get back. So sorry about hubby's back, glad he is experiencing some relief from the pain in La La Land.

Susie, I am so sorry you are feeling dreadful. I seem to do ok with the Nut Thins, don't eat them all that often, but when I have I didn't really notice any ill effects. Do you have delayed reactions or immediate most of the time? Had you eaten something the day before suspect? Is the chicken you ate a roasted chicken? I have heard sometimes they change the recipe without warning for the marinade that they inject and baste the roasted chickens with. Just a thought. Broccoli tends to upset my stomach, but it wouldn't make me feel the way you describe. Of course, we all are different.

Please take good care of yourself and know you are in all of our thoughts :)

Donna, steaming the corn tortillas takes great precission and skill, focus. It's an art. Oh who am I kidding I mess it up all the time, but I'm getting better at it :lol: I figured out I let the water boil and then turn it way down, or even off, and let the steam come up through the steamer basket, then once the water has stopped boiling and it's just steaming I put the tortilla in and put the lid on. Effort, yes but they taste so good.

Oh good...I am no Julia Child in the kitchen, so definitely though it was ME, lol. Seriously though, toasting it in the toaster oven was a happy accident...it was sooo good.

Hey, I am wondering, if anyone might know, can Claritin be made at a compounding pharmacy without the added ingredients????

Okay, so since joining this thread on page 15 or so I've been trying to figure out what causes the almost unbearable itching I have on my legs...sometimes it's barely noticable and sometimes it's just horrible...also through the course of this thread I've thought it might be corn, histamine, chicken, auxigro, sugar and air. My latest, CHOCOLATE. Oh dear God please don't let it be the chocolate, lol. Anything but the chocolate. The itching was so bad on Friday that I finally made an appointment with a dermatologist (not that I think it will do any good because I've seen one before and it didn't help)...coincidentally, last week, especially Friday, I was eating a bunch of chocolate. This weekend I wasn't around chocolate much so didn't have much and the itching was at a minimum...today...WORK happened and I am surrounded by chocolate once again. Arggg...not the chocolate. What's the world coming to. :blink::lol: Or....maybe I'm just allergic to WORK, lol. :lol::lol:

V. funny.

Thanks Julie....it WAS a roasted chicken, teh same kind I eat all the time, I checked the ingreds. but am going to call the store. Am just starting to feel a bit better now but still - - spinached. ugh. not getting much done today and in very much fog.

I have to tell you guys what I thought was so funny - - yesterday, while driving down from the mountains - lots of time to think and pray, which I love - - love goign with people up to elevation but also dearly love going with just the dogs. So anywho...I"m thinking of and praying for the usual people in my life - - friends, family, loved ones - and thinking of my own issues, of course (they are legion :o:lol: ), and I realized with a chuckle that a portion of my time was spent thinking of the people in Rachelville - - like, holy moly, Rachel needs to grow her own vegetables, and, I hope Cecile feels okay today, and how was Lynne's wedding, etc. etc.....and how some of my friends are usign the word SPINACHED now...ha ha.....

Anyway it just cracked me up because there's now a whole TOWN that I have to worry over.... :lol::lol::lol:

no, no, NOT the chocolate....it's work, definitely it' s WORK your'e allergic to...quit your job, keep the chocolate! so sorry about the itching, that must drive you nuts.

and BTW how do people actually go to REAL JOBS if you get so miserably sick from gluten? Can't imagine. Am vaguely looking for a real job but am thinking of just supporting myself as an artist again (albeit a starving one) as I have done in the past, and continuing to work part-time for the writer. I simply know that I couldn't show up and be efficient anywhere today, would have had to call in sick. ugh.

Glad you are starting to feel a little better Susie Q. Do call the store and see if they might have changed the formula. Get some rest and worry about everything later when you feel better!

OMG, I forgot to address something I read yesterday. Rachel asked who Amber Frey was. NO! Are you joking Rachel? She who reads the tabloid covers everyday as she walks by and as she checks out all of the customer's groceries??? I am thinking you were joking, but if you don't know I am surprised given you live in Cali and it was all over the news for years.

I don't know for sure, but I would think it could. The unfortunate thing is that Claritin has both milk and corn ingredients. I've stopped it along with my milky vitamins!

I did a search yesterday to try and find an antihistimine that used potato starch. No luck--

I may not have to worry about quitting, lol...they keep talking about "outsourcing" my department, so I'm sure the point will all be moot at some point. Anyway, it was really hard when I was at my sickest, but fortunately I have a fairly flexible employer and fortunately I was able to take some half days off...I also think my gluten intolerance hadn't done so much damage yet that it totally knocked me out, but I think if I hadn't figured it all out soon it would have.

:lol::lol::lol:

I am a lawyer! So, I guess I do not have a real job!

:lol::lol::lol:

:lol::lol::lol: And I work FOR lawyers so I guess I don't have a real job either, lol!!! :lol::lol:

Pretty sure it was a joke because there were lots of laughing smilies after it. :lol:

:lol::lol::lol::lol: that did also crack me up...but remember when it all happened, at that time I think our President was in a gluten coma, she may not have been working at that time and was permantly spinached to her bed....must have been quite a coma as it was EVERYWHERE for so long..... :o:lol:

Chocolate=Histamine Release

...sorry to be the bearer of such bad news :ph34r:

I don't know for sure, but I would think it could. The unfortunate thing is that Claritin has both milk and corn ingredients. I've stopped it along with my milky vitamins!

Patti,

Even the RediTabs? The info on my box only says citric acid, gelatin, and mannitol as additional ingredients. What is the milk source? This is not good.

I might talk to a pharmacist and see if something can be prepared.

Julie--I've not checked on the Redi Tabs as I've not ever used them. I was talking about the regular Claritin pills. Maybe the Redi Tabs are better? Would the citric acid=corn? I'm so confused :blink:

I hate to hear such things about chocolate :angry: Dumb histamine :angry::angry:

Yeah, during a wedding reception try having your husband tell his relatives about all his wife's "friends" without calling it Rachelville . . . . and then . . . . his sister has a tin of Altoids on the console of her truck . . .
