Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Donna, so glad your test came out GOOD! :) i did not know of anyone having a stomach polyp, is there any concern about that? I suppose we with celiac can expect most anything since it is a bit wierd the way we cope with it!! :huh:

Thanks evie, how are you feeling? They did remove a stomach polyp on my first scope and it was biopsied, but that did come back benign...don't know what causes them in the stomach, but the doctor wasn't concerned at all about it...course I think he had this mass on his mind when I was talking to him--he didn't even mention the polyp except in passing.

There hasn't been a post on here in 30 minutes! How'd we let that happen?!?!

Um - question:

I'm beginning to have my mystery stomach muscle spasms (gluten-free or not, they're still there about every month) again, and I'm feeling really flushed. Like that's new, but my face feels hot. Anyway, I went to the b-room to check it out, and even through my glorious BE makeup, I could see the flushing on my cheeks, but the wierd thing is that it was totally symetrical. That's not necessarily wierd, but there's a dime-sized kind of triangular red spot on each cheek below the main area of flushing. It's horizontally on the same latitude as the top of my lip, and vertically in line with the outer edge of my eyes. WTF is that about?

I wonder if I flush like that every time my stomach hurts? :huh:

my Ana is such a sweety (she's 4 months old)...all she does is laugh at me.... all I see are those toothless gums all the time :lol:

what? no...laugh at you? How could she possibly laugh at you....I mean, are you known to be funny or something?

;):lol:;)

Chelsea - yah, definitely the air allergy, or the water.... ;) But seriously, I have no idea what would cause that weird cheek flush spot issue....someone from our cult farm will surely pipe in with some knowledge, though.

Yeah, where is everybody today.....so quiet in R-ville - - the dingos are getting restless...

Donna - - was that your Vater of something-or-other that they tested? Yay!

I get the hot face/flushing--but not as much as before. I know you were looking through your makeup, but I also thought of the "butterfly rash" that people with Lupus describe. Did it look anything like that?

Blame the thread about how we get anything done if we're on here all day. :P

I'm trying to limit myself but not doing such a good job of it. :o

A/C is running overtime so we are cool. :D

Chelsea,

I don't know either....hopefully some one else will.

Wow....busy night here in RVille

First off...Geese would make LOUSY cattle gaurds. They would keep flying away, and are obviously WAY too busy keeping us all safe to guard the cows!! :lol::lol:B)

No, no, NO, darlin'! You must understand: Our geese are miraculous and multi-talented!!!!! They LOVE guarding our cows, and would never dream of flying away unless their charges were safely ensconced in our barn!!!!! SEMPER FI - That's our geese! ;););)

Yeeeah, I thought butterfly rash, too. Although, it doesn't really go across my nose, my nose is just a little more pink, if that makes sense. I'm taking off my makeup now (I knew having the supermom stuffed purse would come in handy :lol: ) so I'll give it some time and see how it looks without makeup.

What with that, and the wierd totally random rashes...I don't know what to think! :unsure:

Of course, my hair isn't falling out, I'm anemic yes, but my platelets are high, not low. I'm gaining weight, not losing it...

And whatever this stomach spasming thing is about, it's definitely what I would describe as a flare. A flare of what, I do not know. Acidic food, bland food. Gluten, no gluten. Prilosec, no prilosec. Bentyl, no bentyl. Bentyl doesn't even touch it. I have to take a phenergan suppository and knock myself out to try and get rid of it. For some reason, in spite of multiple ER trips and lots of narcotics, nobody's really tried to figure out what the heck it is!!! I guess I'll ask the GI to poke around my stomach while he's in there getting biopsies.

Geez...celiac and lupus, wouldn't that be fun! <_<

Donna, that is wonderful news.

Robin, congratulations on letting go of misery.

Julie has a regal beauty and a regal grace in her postings, definitely Queen material. I agree but does this mean we are going to be looking for a King? :ph34r: I'm definitely leaning in the direction of a matrilineal succession. :lol:

Patti, I'm glad to hear the spring water is working for you. I am using Aquafina but ran out, was on the road, etc. and so have not been consistent.

Andrea, what an amazing job you are doing keeping track of all the positions, thanks.

Chelsea, how does it look with your make-up off? Is this a new make-up for you?

Rachel, I know that overall I can't handle dairy but there were a couple of times I had some strawberry ice cream and it didn't seem to bother me as long as I didn't over do it. I will say though that after reading the DrJ articles on wheat, dairy and soy I will make the effort to avoid dairy from now on. Oh, and soy too.

Mango, I will look forward to hearing about your down under adventures.

Celia, I can feel your happiness, how wonderful.

And Vincent, yes we need an official rulebreaker though don't be surprised to find yourself surrounded by unoffical rule breakers. :lol::lol:

Hi, Y'all!

I'm all caught up on the posts, and trying to remember who said what, without quoting your individual posts.

PATTI - Is your Poland Springs water flat or with bubbles? (I can't remember what the fizzy water is called.) The only kind I've found here in Georgia is the bubbly kind, and I don't like it.

RACHEL - I think you're absolutely right about ice cream!!! :) I used to think I was lactose intolerant, but after I learned about MSG and all the other crap that's in ice cream, I found some that's junk-free. Yea! Thanks to this incredible string of yours - No problems!! :):):)

JULIE for Queen - I vote aye!

DONNA - I'm so happy to hear your good news about benign biopsies!!! You must be on Cloud Nine! :D:D:D

CHELSEA - Hmmm . . . Flushing and spots? Reaction to MSG, red wine, niacin, or anti-biotic? My niece has the same symptoms if she drinks red wine. :( I think the butterfly rash of lupus goes across the bridge of the nose, and you said you didn't have that. Oh, and how about rosacea?

Congratulations, Picard!!!! You can never have too many women in the family :)

Not that I'm biased...

I just "took" some phenergan, so I'll be passing out and become incoherent pretty soon. Doesn't take that long to get from the butt to the head :rolleyes:

Yeah, still don't know what it is, my mom is both worried and at a loss. This has been going on a long time and robs me of at least a day's worth of spoons. :(

OK, I'm done whining :unsure:
