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.

ROFLMAO

My mom fell for this too! :lol:

She said how could you not know who Amber Frey is ....you followed that whole case...bought all the magazines!

I'm telling ya...its brainfog to the max! :lol:

Yeah...I live about 10 minutes from Modesto too. :P

;):lol:

:lol::lol::lol:

OK gals and guys. I'll be back in a bit. Gotta get the baby to bed and let hubby on here for a little bit. I always ask to see what's going on but I need to give him some time. Hmmmm, we really need to get another computer. :lol::lol::P

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Julie,

My doc is looking into this for me. Not for Claritin though...another antihistamine...I think Zyrtec?? Is that an antihistamine? I dunno...it started with a Z though. Shes gonna ask about that or ANY antihistimine that can be compounded. She said the Ketotifen is mainly for the gut and asthma...not the same as these other antihistimines.

Ooooh, let me know when you find out Rachel . Very interested in this.

I am so jealous! :angry:

We long-suffering Maple Leaf fans hope to see the Cup come back to Toronto at least once before we die! Now that Pat Quinn is gone, hopefully we will have a chance this year - except that my heart was broken when the Leafs let go of Tie Domi. OMG, that man bleeds Blue and White! Never seen a guy with so much heart for a city and for the game. I LOVE THAT MAN! Hopefully, he will be accomodated somewhere else in the organization, he certainly has earned it!

snorting guffaw huh? now that's ROFL worthy....good word combo! And I'm glad I'll fit in....

Welcome Dave. :D

I have the application that our esteemed president has put together. To be a permanent member of Rachelville, it is only 3 questions.

Are you gluten free?

Do you promise to never infiltrate Rachelville with gluteney foods?

Do you promise to never bring gigantic Auxigro ridden produce into R-Ville?

OK...Thats about it.

If you answered yes to all of the above....the job is yours. :D

Am I gluten free....well I don't have to be, and I'm sure we can all agree if we don't have to be, we won't be!

Yes I won't infiltrate any good foods to you guys...I'll eat paper and other paper tasting goods while I'm in R'Ville.

auxigro huh? no gigantic produce here....

Andrea, you must add "Mother Hen" to your job description :)

Hi Bev, good to see you! Of course your husband can join us. He can go over the hill to the mall with Rachel and Mango and the others, where there just might be a KFC. So sorry you have not been feeling well, you have had a rough time of it the last several months. Have you had a check up? Hope you getting lots of rest and taking good care of yourself.

Susie Q!!! Good morning to you and the dingo girls. I also was impressed with Celia's scince posts, very scientificness of her.

Dave could be our town hottie :lol:

I like you already....I can tell you're the smart one ;)

Welcome Dave - Village Idiot, I don't know about that, it seems to me you have to be quite brilliant just to appreciate the job. :lol:

Exactly :D

I now have 25 new bracelets and one more just waiting to be strung. :ph34r::lol:

Well, welcome anyway TheDave, Rachel's friend-but-not-boss (stealing from Penguin cuz I liked it too much, lol).

Thanks!

Glad to see the post of village idiot has been filled by Rachel's not boss/friend Dave

Welcome aboard Dave!!

Of course....I would do nothing else but hold down the fort as the idiot! :lol:

Rachel, do tell us about our village idiot-Is he qualified enough for the job? He looks pretty cute, though. I suspect he is lying on his application and is not really a qualified idiot, lol.

I am so qualified...just lemme hang around a bit and I'm sure I can convince you of my idiocy! ;)

LMAO...

Sssshhhhh.....my friend- who is not my boss has joined us! :lol:

Where did you hear this? I would never use up valuable work time to read such trash! I think you have me confused with Susan who has a love/hate realationship with celeberaties.

You're in trouble darlin'...... haha

You mean the Court Jester - I mean the Village Idiot? He's too cute to be labelled an idiot!

Can he maybe be the town firefighter? Or the town "shirtless construction worker"? ;)

ROFL....Rachel, why aren't you correcting these misconceptions? Believe me....you'd be blind if I took off this here shirt! haha.

-Dave

shirtless construction worker.....OH MY GAAAAWD we have got to have plenty of those...

Clearly a necessity...but please just remember.....there are a handful of women contruction workers too! Can't be discriminating in Rachelville now can we?

I think not.

The celebrex is helping a little bit with the jaw pain and swelling.

But I still have the thick stick mucus in my throat.

I really believe there is a connection between the TMJ teeth and the food sensitivites that I have.

I dont have celiac, but eating gluten definately makes it worse.

A whole host of foods make it worse. But some way more than others. Ya know.

I dont grind my teeth as far as I know, Ive had someone watch me sleeping , and they said I sleep with my mouth open, and I dont grind.

In response to someone's post, I really appretiate your adivce and sharing your experiences, thats what I like to hear most, is other peoples experiences. For me, I dont think the TMJ is realted to psychological factors, bruxism or a misaligned bite, I had braces as a kid and a retainer, my bite is perfecto. The inflammation sets up the pain, and the nerves and muscles in my jaw and puzzling enough its concentrated mostly there and in my neck and somtimes wrists. Its arthritis, in a sense, not rhumatoid, ive been tested for that, it could be something more vague like a systemic autoimmune thing going on in my body. Thats why no doctors have been able to figure it out.

What seems to help,, a little bit, is diet change. or Food avoidance. Still gotta find a good doc. Im trying, Im trying.

I am still baffled as what to eat, but thats somthing I have to figure out on my own, I know that sugary foods make me feel a lot worse, and gluten dairy, sulfites etc. chemicals and perfumes.

But the jaw pain and puffiness, how is it related? its so complex.

I am afaraid to get the root cannals done because of the cost! ive already spent $2,380 cash it will be another $4,000 dollars to get the teeth fixed.

On the positive side, The porcline crown doesnt seem to be bothering me, he did a nice job.

I love but hate being so sensitive!

HI Christine,

Sorry you're not feeling well, but, I'm a little confused....it seems that your main complaint is the jaw/tooth pain, buuuut....you're not Celiac and not eating gluten-free....is your goal to eliminate all gluten? Just wondering if we're the ones to best help you...good luck!

Susan, I open another window and then post to it, going back and forth between the two but I see the Village Idiot (obviously slipping up on the idiocy part :lol::lol::lol: ) just gave us a brilliant solution.

I think I need a chocolate intervention. :( I don't have the full range of histamine reactions but I definitely notice an agitation and I sneeze. I realize that I have fueled myself on stimulants, histamines included, for years. It is no wonder I feel bad with or without them these days. :( This thread makes such a difference, I was thinking today I would never have thought about so many aspects of being Celiac without all of you. Thanks. :)
