Opinions Should Be Created Equally!

Entry posted by GF Lover · - 243 views

It really upsets me that if I offer a different opinion from the norm(on the forum) that it gets completely brushed off by some posters who must think their opinion is more valuable than mine. Just because someone has a diagnosis with a condition unrelated or related to celiac, doesn't make that diagnosis wrong or frivolous.

I do not go looking for things that are wrong with me. Alot of my conditions are actually found by accident.

Because a particular issue seems to bother some, I will use it as a Case In Point.

It is a diagnosis of carpel tunnel. I got this diagnosis by accident. I had been having some blackouts and taking some severe falls. One fall was particularly nasty. I went to my general doctor because my neck was really hurting. He ordered an X-Ray. He also made me an appointment with a neurologist to try to find out why I was backing out. We'll, my neck was fine, although they also saw a cyst on my thyroid, which I than went to my Endo about. But I also had the appointment with the neurologist. He tested for seizures and pinched nerves. Low and behold, during the EMG for nerve testing, he discovers carpel tunnel during the second part of the test which involves electrodes.

So my point is, not all diagnoses are just to placate the patient or are frivolous as some may think.

Also some may have knowledge about vitamin supplementation, some know the partular blood tests for a full celiac workup. I don't give my opinion about these things because I am not knowledgeable on those subjects. I do offer my opinion on physical symptoms that I have knowledge about. So are all of the opinions useful? Yes, because celiac is not a clear cut disease. It can effect many parts of the body and mind. There is NO one opinion that fits all.

Be well.
