Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Happy Birthday Rachel! happy Anniversary Laura and eric

Mia- I'm sorry you've been feeling so bad :( I hope it gets better soon. :wub:

Andrea- Sorry about your horse. What kind is it (I mean breed)?

Donna- Sorry about the D. I had EXPLOSIVE D all day today but it's my own fault (I racheled Ultra Cleanse....oh boy! Well- my pipes have been clogged since I drank the barium so I guess this really is an ultra-cleanse :P ) Do you think it's job stress?

The obsessive thoughts (I used to have HORRID ones- actually my sis did too- she was afraid to have kids because shethought she'd put them in the microwave :ph34r: ) I think are definitely a CHEMICAL imbalance that for you could definitely be caused by the Lyme. What you were saying about reading, my therapist told me she had chemo brain (breast cancer) and still has a hard time reading.

Amy Tan's story is crazy!!

Patti- Gosh I wish this reaction would END for you. Enough already!

Judy- No I didn't post here (one of my poems gopt published online) I didn't know i had fans <ahttps://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/uploads/emoticons/default_tongue.png' alt=':P'> I'll post the link if anyone wants to read it. It's : Pussy Willows in Blue You are very welcome for the email- you know I'd do anything for you!

Rinne- THAT LETTER ROCKED!

Susie and Jin- Let's go get some WEATHAH!!!!!!!!!! (that's how we pronounce it in boston)

HAPPY FOUNDER"S DAY RACHEL AND ALL!!!!!!

DONNA - - -- I think you have to quit your job - - - I think it's making you sick!!!

Yep, Yep. :lol::blink:

I talked to someone the other day who had heard about my bars from someone who had tasted it at a public event I was at, many raves.

Wow, very cool indeed!

Maybe you will feel like painting your toes today! I hope so! It really does sound like your job is making you sick. Worrying about the D all the time has to be difficult. I am that way, too. My stomach issues dictate way too much! It would be nice not to have to worry about that.

Nope. :lol: Got home too late and eating took first priority. :lol: I ran into someone I used to work with in the waiting room at HN today...we talked for at least 15-20 minutes, lol. That put me behind schedule. I don't think they (my toes) will have time to dry before going to bed. :P

Donna, I hope the D goes away soon.

Thanks, I did discuss it with the doctor who does my prolotherapy today (she's an internist)...she did a little mini exam and felt around my abdomen where the pain is. She wants to keep an eye on it and may do some testing if it keeps happening or if I have it for several days in a row.

:lol: My little experience, I can hardly believe what some of you have gone through.

Yikes! :o

What is the appt. line-up?? Seems like alot of appt's are coming up this month. I know I have at least 3 coming up.

Alls I know is Donna on the 2nd, Susan on the 4th, Bev on the 5th, Rachel on the 10th. I don't know your other appointments Rachel. Did I miss anyone?

Andrea- Sorry about your horse. What kind is it (I mean breed)?

It is a breyer Goeffert Friesian repainted as a chestnut Gypsy Vanner. Beautiful. I'll keep him. My hubby had said I didn't really need to sell anymore if I didn't want to.

Susie and Jin- Let's go get some WEATHAH!!!!!!!!!! (that's how we pronounce it in boston)

Tee Hee... :P

Bev - could be job stress, although it's certainly no worse than it ever has been there (the stress I mean, lol).

What is the appt. line-up?? Seems like alot of appt's are coming up this month. I know I have at least 3 coming up.

Well, today was my LAST prolotherapy session I think! YAY...I'm tired of being injected. :P Anyway, I go in in three weeks for a reevaluation...haven't made that appointment yet...too busy talking to my ex-co-worker, lol

Saturday is my ART appointment.

On June 26th (if that's the Tuesday) is my follow up with the LLMD.

You, Dr.Huffy, make a wonderful first impression and certainly seem to inspire people to health but I think you may be most successful with people who are not ill. I am sure many will benefit from the changes in their lifestyle that you recommend but I am left wanting a refund.

Rinne,

I loved the letter and I'm sure writing it had to feel darned GOOD!! B)

Glad you were able to express just how much he disappointed you....I would love to see his face as he reads it. :lol:

I expect Dr. Huffy will be getting a bit huffy today. :lol::lol:

and yeah...I think you should get a refund!! I think we all should get refunds from lame Dr.'s who suck. :rolleyes:

Dont think it will happen though. <_<

Dear Carla,

That is unbelievable about that house of yours getting hit with lightening! :o

We had another house with a small, but old grapfruit tree. You guys might think I'm crazy, and I assure you ... I am :lol: ... but it was back when I was starting to develop more of a faith life but there was a lot of uncertainty, not about God, but just faith in general.

We were broke and had this grapefruit tree that was dying. We didn't have the tools to take it out, or the money to hire someone to do it, so I challenged God :ph34r: , I said that if He was really there and if he really loved me, then make this grapefruit tree live. Well, it did. Not only that, the next year it was totally and completely loaded with grapefruit ... and for several years after that.

When we sold the house, we drove by it before closing because there had been a big storm the night before ... the tree was struck down by lightening! :o Apparently, it was MY tree.

happy b day rachel everyone

Hey rachel so I took two charcoal pills by themselves last night. Diarrhea .smelled like skunk ugh, yeah I have no shame. I don't know if it was that or the nacho cheese doritos my brother was eating or the moldy cabinet that we cleaned out real good in my moms closet. I took the same amount of charcoal today and no diarrhea. What do you think this could be?

Wow, this is a long thread.. I tried to read some of it but it is just too long to get a understanding of it..

I wanted to read it because I seem to still have issues after I stopped with gluten, casein and legumes. My stomach seems to get out of sorts so easily, I seem to be very sensitive to traces of stuff I can't have and sometimes I get sick not understanding why. Like this Monday I suddenly got a bad stomach ache after eating sallad and I have some of the ache still. Had some diarreah, easily get bloated.. I am not sure if I can handle egg or corn, rice..any grains. I have many food allergies too..

I have no doctor that I see and I have had negative results on 2 blood tests (10 years apart).. I have gotten way better on the gluten-free diet but I wish I was better. I read the long thread about EnteroLab a while back. I was positive in their test, but like so many other I wonder why Dr Fine isn't coming out with any stuff about his work.... So I am wishing here that I was properly diagnosed...but after seeing 9 doctors and not getting any help that way I gave up.

So..I am wondering if I am missing something. Trying to figure that out from this thread I guess. I know I don't have Lyme disease...doesn't sound like I have Chron's, Colitis or any or those diseases.. It is tiresome to fight somehimes. I know I am much better since this winter, but I wanna be better, understand WHY I get sick sometimes when it seems I did it all right. (This time I figured out it might have been because I forgot to wash the veggies before I ate them. Just seems so stupid.)

Maybe a weird post. Don't know where to start... Hope it is fine if I jump in here like this.

Maybe someone can tell me in short what this thread is all about. I have seen some of you have figured out other issues.

Sorry about the D. I had EXPLOSIVE D all day today but it's my own fault

:lol::lol::lol:

Sorry for laughing ... I'm laughing at the relationship we all have ... :lol::lol::lol: ... excuse me again, it's just so funny!! I don't have ANY other friends I would tell that I have diarrhea ... or that I've used an enema!!! :lol::lol::lol:

Rachel, you are right, it's the toxins. On Weds. after my meeting in the morning, I always drive over to Adam's office ... though he normally drives, since I'm already driving, he just hops in the car and we go to Starbucks by his office.

TODAY, I realized very quickly that I didn't recognize anything and that he needed to tell me where to turn. :huh: I am so toxic.

And my sauna is out of commission. :( One of the panels was faulty and they're going to have to send us another one.

Between this cold and the new medicine, I've just accumulated more toxins than I can handle. I was taking 4 amoxy three times daily ... I didn't want to stop it completely, I just don't think that's a good idea with abx, so I cut it down to 1. I will just take 1 three times daily until I'm more functional again.

I think that I just have a lot of this particular form of the bacteria because I had the same reaction to the Omnicef. Because of that, I think that I'm just going to have to go slowly with it. Like Rachel realized ... that she's going to have to be a little uncomfortable to get rid of these toxins ... I think I will just feel uncomfortable every time I go after this form of the bacteria ... at least with the amoxy I can lower the dose easily.

I think the cold is playing a big part in this ... Chloe's still sick, too. Adam says his are allergies ... but he's still got it, too. Ten days is pretty normal for a bad cold.

Jenny, I'm glad you jumped in!! Yeah, you can't read the thread from the beginning!!! We've learned a LOT since this thread first started about all kinds of things ... not just Lyme.

Tell us about your symptoms.

Jenny...of course it perfectly fine for you to jump in.....and NO your post doesnt sound weird at all....most of us here have all the food intolerances and have been exactly where you're at now.

I can totally relate to the frusterations and yeah...the washing (or not washing) of the veggies too. I dont use tap water on any of my food anymore.

The thread isnt about any one thing...we've learned alot since I started this thread last year and most of us have since been diagnosed....all of the missing pieces are starting to come together for us.

We've covered a bunch of different topics...pretty much every discovery made here has been discussed at great length...so we've learned alot from each other. :)

Some people are new to the thread...others have been around a long time.

Theres alot of info in the thread and I dont know that theres much we havent talked about. :huh:

We just tackled diferent issues as they came our way... we tried to rule things in or out for ourselves.

The first portion of the thread is largely about food intolerances, MSG, all different things having to to with diet restrictions, reactions etc.

Other topics we've covered alot are candida/mold, mercury and Lyme....but also a ton of other things...too many to list.

I got diagnosed with Lyme in Oct. and surprisingly since then....every person here who has pursued this has also been diagnosed with Lyme. :blink: So yeah...at this point I wouldnt rule Lyme out in any person who is having these problems. Its been a rough road for all of us so I'm pretty sure we're all just happy to be getting answers.

I think every one of us has a ton of food intolerance...with the exception of Carla...who somehow lucked out in that area. :P

We just brainstorm and try to help each other get better....LOTS of support here. :)

Feel free to talk about anything here....we do have have fun too. :D

Not everyone posting here is having all these issues....Andrea is one who is mostly healthy....she just like us alot. ;)

And we love her too. :wub:

Candida and leaky gut are pretty common issues here too.

Toxicity seems to be the main reason for alot of food intolerance, chemical sensitivity, allergies, etc.

Its a matter of determining the cause of that toxicity....its not usually one thing...could be a few things contributing.

Welcome and jumping in the way you did is just fine, in fact it is a perfect way to arrive in Rachelville as we lovingly :wub: call it. :)

Rachel has covered just about everything very well, all I can add is yes, please tell us about how you are feeling and how long you've been ill and anything else you would like to share.

Jenny,

Rachel pretty much summed up the thread... I wasn't one of the original posters in the thread, started posting in the thread a few months ago after some of my symptoms hadn't resolved despite being gluten-free, df, sf for over a year with a number of different diets within those parameters during that time... most of us have a number of food intolerances due to different underlying systemic issues... I tested reactive to 32 out of 115 foods when I did an intolerance test the end of last year... I think the vast majority of those foods (and others I didn't test reactive to but need to avoid at the moment) I'll be able to eat at least in moderation again once I address all the underlying issues adequately...

as for helping with your situation, some general background info would be helpful... what your main symptoms are, what testing you've had done, how long you've been gluten-free and in what areas you've noticed the most amount of improvement and least amount of improvement in... an example of what type of diet you feel best with currently...

as for "doing everything right" and still getting sick at times, I completely understand... which is what ultimately lead me to do more research regarding my situation and lead me to this thread for input as well... I had improved in a number of areas, but I had to have such a strict diet to even maintain this and would still get symptomatic for anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days for no apparent reason at times... you're certainly not alone in that regard...

Glad you jumped in Jenny. Don't worry about reading through this unless you want to search out something specific and have tons of time on your hands. :P

Just ask any questions you have, symptoms etc.

As Rachel said I'm the healthiest of the group. I think my intolerances stem from amalgams which I'm hoping to get taken care of within 1 1/2 years.

I do have quite a few intolerances but they weren't causing me obvious discomfort. My problems were pretty much stomach/intestinal but weren't bad at all. We don't eat out and don't usually have problems with shared lines (other than gluten)......except for chips which we don't eat anymore.

Dear Rinne,

I bet we can kick the crap out of doctors! My holistic physician upon meeting me last year said I had anger issues with doctors. :rolleyes::lol: Who wouldn't after being through all of this? We have suffered plenty. We deserved better!

Dear Rachel,

I totally agree that it is scary how little doctors normally know. It is like "You went to Medical School to learn what?" :blink: It is infuriating we must pay jerks who refused to help us. They would not even try. They made harsh judgments, accusations, and the like, but not once did they offer to try to find the physical issue causing our misery! I do not think we should have to pay these morons. I cannot tell you how many times I left doctor's offices in tears.

Dear Bev,

Yeah! We are gonna get us some WEATHAH! ;):P We will be like those ladies called "The Twister Sisters!" That will be a blast! We need a pimped out bus! It will be our own groovy place!

I tried to get to your poem, but have not gotten to it. I cannot find it. I must be looking in the wrong place. Where is it? I am a published poet, too. When I was 13, I got a poem published in "Tomorrow's Dream". It is a book that place up in Maryland produced.

Dear Laura,

Nice to hear from you! I hope you feel more like writing tomorrow! We miss you on here! You have been so busy, we have not seen much of you lately! Have a good rest!

Dear Donna,

Sorry you did not get to paint the toenails today! :( Mine look pretty good. I really like this pink. It is so pretty!

Maybe the D has to do with the gallbladder. That is the first thing that comes to mind. Everytime I ate, it came right back out when I had mine in.

Dear Jenny,

If your doctor went by the CDC 2-tier diagnostic approach, it may be wrong. You need an LLMD to interpret Western Blots. Igenix is the most accurate laboratory. If they did not use it, then it is likely not accurate. Food intolerances are linked to more than Lyme, though. Welcome to our thread!

Yeast Candida causes Leaky-Gut Syndrome, making you intolerant to many foods. This is a serious problem. If you have been on a lot of antibiotics, steroids, or birth control, it is a good possibility you have it.

Mercury poisoning tends to be present when Candida is involved, and Candida is often there whenever Lyme is present. They normally are present at the same time. If you have one, you could have them all. This is more likely when Lyme is present, though. You can have the Candida and Mercury poisoning separate from Lyme.

Dear Andrea,

I do not think I told you guys about my upcoming appointment. I have one on the 5th of June. I see my holistic physician. I am nervous about mentioning Lyme. What if she does not agree with me? What do I do then?

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

except for chips which we don't eat anymore.

am I the only person on this thread who eats potato chips? I see chips mentioned every now and then and almost always in a negative light...

my diet for the past couple months has literally been meats and veggies, with potato chips as my "cheat" food... I only eat Kettles plain chips (only ingredients are potatoes, sunflower/safflower oil, and salt) and it seems to be somewhat hit or miss from one bag to the next as to how I feel afterwards... while I've had some reactions I'd link to either a cc issue or just racheling the chips for a few days, the chips usually aren't much of an issue for me and I'm as sensitive as just about anyone with food intolerances...

what's so bad about potato chips.. is it due to a mold issue? additives/ingredients used for most brands? cc issues?... my only real concern is from a candida or cc standpoint (as Kettle has been noted by some to have these issues in the past though I think a recent post said that their chips dated as of August of this year are made in a separate facility).. just curious about this after seeing some different replies (not specifically this one, just spurred my memory) mentioning potato chips...

Hey rachel so I took two charcoal pills by themselves last night. Diarrhea .smelled like skunk ugh, yeah I have no shame. I don't know if it was that or the nacho cheese doritos my brother was eating or the moldy cabinet that we cleaned out real good in my moms closet. I took the same amount of charcoal today and no diarrhea. What do you think this could be?

:ph34r: oh my gawwwwwwwwwd - - - been trying to figure out for 16 months how to describe the smell of glutened diarrhea (Carla - - :lol: - I CAN believe we discuss this here - - but I must be weird - I discuss my bowel movements with ALL of the inner circle - - and now they tell me theirs :lol: but when I try to describe diarrhea by glutening - impossible :huh: ) - - - - IT IS SKUNK!!!!! Lisa - did you eat some of the Doritos?

Sorry for laughing ... I'm laughing at the relationship we all have ... :lol::lol::lol: ... excuse me again, it's just so funny!! I don't have ANY other friends I would tell that I have diarrhea ... or that I've used an enema!!! :lol::lol::lol:

again.....I must be weird - - - all my friends are just about equally close - I don't really have acquaintances - friends tend to be inner circle - very close over time - or not friends - is it because I"m so bored with superficiality? :lol: so - again - yes, I would tell all of them if I"d had an enema - would ask each one first, if they'd ever had one..... ;)

Sorry about all the colds - and your bad reaction to whatever bug you're killing?

am I the only person on this thread who eats potato chips? I see chips mentioned every now and then and almost always in a negative light...

Um, hallooooooo??? (raises hand meekly) :ph34r: charlie - I eat them too, and have not had problems. BUT - - must eat them in small amounts, and not often. In fact I haven't had chips in about a month, I think, and I don't keep them in the house - I eat them at my mom's - as would get up in the night and Rachel half the bag, I think. I eat Lay's also, is that what you said you eat? Blow me if I didn't dingo it......

Twister Sisters :lol: good one, Jin...

Carla - excellent grapefruit tree story....

and I am off to bed!

So yours and Bev's is on the 5th. She may not agree but it never hurts to run the Igenex western blots. Just make sure your order the kit from them when you have the funds and take it in with you. :)

Kettle chips are what I ate. Love them.:) I always got the lightly salted. After eating a whole small bag once I got a little sick. Didn't want to go there again and had heard about cc issues with them.

Thanks for the welcome everyone! :D

Well...hhmmm..lets seee..

I got really sick in 2003 with nausea, stomach aches, chronic fatigue, memory problems (couldn't remember my own number if someone asked), irregular heart beat, diarrhea and freaky 24/7 heartburn that didn't get better on any medications (used to give me sores in my throat). I was tested for gluten in 1996 (blood test-not sure which one or how many they took, I was very new to all of this then) and also lactose. Both came up negative. I was tested because I had time periods when I got nauseous and some diarrhea. Well, I was told I had IBS and that it would go away on its own, and it actually did. I had problems with my stomach off and on after that and I remember my stomach was always sensitive since I was a kid. Mom told me I didn't wanna gain weight as an infant and I always ate bad.

Anyways...Saw like 9 doctors. Most of them in Sweden and they all just told me it was IBS, worry and some even told me I had no problems because the medication (at that time Nexium) would take care of it. I had a gastroscopi done and it didn't show anything.

They never checked my intestinal lining, just the ventricle/stomach.

Then in the US they gave me Protonix and that helped a bit better. I often had stomach aches, diarrhea, irregular heart beat and I was constantly tired. I felt like a pile of garbage.. Last spring I got so tired and fatigued that I actually thought I was gonna die. I slept a whole night and felt like I hadn't slept in days. I was nauseas constantly and it was very hard to eat anything. My husband started reading about Gluten Intolerance online and I decided to try. I felt slight better after a bit and I went to the doctor for blood test again. I hadn't had gluten (as much as I knew by that time) in 3 weeks and they tests came out negative.

Still I had an improvement with my heart burn so I stayed with the diet and found this place. I heard of EnteroLab here and decided to try it. It came back positive on gluten and casein. I had one Celiac gene and one gluten intolerance one.

(I guess I should also mention that my aunt has a bunch of problems with her stomach and my grandmother died because of problems with her stomach. She had TONS of surgery because of diverticulitis, had stomi at one point and many times had ulcers. In the end, when she was 77, she had to go to the ER every 2 weeks because of her stomach and the last time they did surgery the intestines where so bad off that she dies 3 weeks after. They didn't work anymore.)

Okay, so I stopped with casein in October when I got the test results. Got a bit more energetic but still had heartburn and attacks of fatigue during the days sometimes. I then stopped with soy (I had a 9>10 on it from EnteroLab) and eventually all Legumes when they gave me stomach aches and heart burn.

Now, I have TONS more energy and kinda feel I am "the old jenny" a little bit, but I still have a bloated stomach every week, seems to not be able to handle much foods at all. I seem to be okay on fresh veggies, but far from all. Then add on that I am allergic to peach, apple, plums, carrots, pears, cherries, strawberries and nuts... I feel nasty eating Avocado and any more than tiny amounts of oil (probably why I can't handle avocado) makes me sick. I seem to be super sensitive to trace amounts of for example casein. They gave me BCP this spring (and I ate them for a month only) and they had a lactose in them that is supposed to be more or less casein free, well it made me very sick. I stopped with the BCP because they made my migraine with aura much worse (had 4 in a weekend) and I later found out that one isn't supposed to eat hormones if one has migraine with aura. Nobody ever asked.

So bloating, my stomach gets very easily upset, easily nauseas (but that has gotten much better), seem to have a lot of gas too off and on. I can't seem to handle egg, corn seems iffy too (my Protonix has corn in it I noticed..)..

I dunno, I just wish I had a more "steady" time. I get sick every month. I do live in a home that has gluten and casein everywhere (with my husbands family-we have had money problems because of my health among other things, things are starting to look up now though).. I seem to get sick even if I do everything right. I follow all suggestions and I never go to restaurants.

I started drinking bottled water a couple of months ago, but I heard from that doctor that talks about chemical sensitivities on DR Fine's DVD that the bottles are supposed to be glass instead of plastic. The water picks up some plastic stuff from them that aren't good.

I am all into organic stuff. Most veggies and fruits that I buy is organic. I hate eating medications and I try to leave as "clean" as possible. I am sensitive to perfume/fragrance and haven't used perfume in years. I get a rash from fabric softener sheets.

I also itch really bad from chemical sun blockers... so I know I am the sensitive type. I usually also react odd to medications. Not all but a lot of them. Small doses of Ibuprofen makes me absolutely beat. I can hardly walk up stairs. There are some other medications that I don't handle well either. I seem to get a lot of side effects. (also I haven't been able to eat Vitamins so far-used to before this all started)

Lyme disease is what you can get from Tics right? I have been bitten twice, but it was a looong time ago and it never got red or anything. I removed them very fast.

I don't have any amalgam in my mouth (if that is of interest)...Hmm.. I am sure I have forgotten stuff.

Maybe someone has some ideas. Take a stab at it!

Hi Jenny! welcome......this is the place where you will find many Diarrhea Diagnosticians!

ROFLMAO

OMG Susan...you kill me!! :lol::lol:

Ummm....I dont think I'm part of the "DD" team. :unsure:

I dont have alot of experience in this area....hence...the need for mention of "enemas" in Rachelville. :ph34r:

I think explosive "D" would probably eliminate the need for ummm..."assistance" of toxin removal. :P

I wonder what kind of toxins would cause explosive diarrhea comparable to SKUNK??!! Is this a gluten thing for you Susan?? :unsure:

I do tell a couple people about my bm's, enemas, etc...I dont know that they are thrilled to be knowing all this but they do listen....they probably figure they have no choice. :lol:

Charlie....you can have CHIPS?? :blink:

Well you are one very lucky guy!! I cant have them...I think its mailnly an issue of mold. Trust me...I've tried all kinds but they definately make me more toxic. <_<

Corn chips are worse than potato chips but they both mess me up pretty good. It might also be because I cant do anything in moderation. :rolleyes: I end up racheling the whole bag in one sitting. :ph34r:

I might be OK if I just ate like 2 chips....but who can do that??!! :unsure:

and what would be the point?? :huh:

Oh...chips are also totally forbidden with regards to candida....so yeah...I figure if I gotta ditch my ice cream I better not start racheling chips instead. I think the ice cream is actually alot better for me. Mold affects me more than anything else....except for things like aspartame or MSG.

How do you get diagnosed with having for example to much heavy metal in your body?

There are a couple ways...either hair analysis...or provoked urine test. Its a "challenge" test where you take a pharmaceutical chelator (chelators bind with metals and pull them out of tissue and cells to be excreted) and the urine is evalutated for high levels of metals.

I've had hair analysis a few years ago but it showed nothing with regards to mercury. My mercury levels were low. The problem with that is that I wasnt excreting any mercury...I wasnt detoxing it at all...its stored in my body and therefore did not show up in hair analysis. When someone is very toxic sometimes their body is holding onto the metals and they are not getting detoxed or excreted through the bodies detoxification organs.

Lyme is one thing that can impair detoxification...genetics can also be responsible for slow detoxification. Some people detox better than others...having Lyme doesnt help...it hinders.

I got sick from mercury...I had no idea I had Lyme lurking and setting me up for this. I never saw a tick on me....never got a rash...so I have no real clear indication of when I got infected.
