Day Three

Entry posted by Porcelina · - 627 views

Fatigued. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tired. My eyelids droop as I write this.

On an interesting note about how another way gluten may bother me, I saw my chiropractor on Wednesday for an adjustment. I see her once in a blue moon. It seems that as soon as a long weekend comes, my back likes to tweak out (not twirk out thank goodness!).

Anyways, she does a great job on Wednesday and I say 'see ya next month!' Well, yesterday, day 2 of gluten challenge, I'm washing my hair in the shower when my neck and the area between my shoulder blades seize up. Not fun as I have soap running in my eyes and now I can't move. I call her up and she tells me to come in tomorrow (which is today). I have NEVER had this happen so soon after an adjustment.

So, I'm in there today and shes asking me the usual 'what happened?', 'are you doing anything different' and then she asks 'are you still doing that no sugar challenge and no gluten thing?'.
My ears prick up. Nooooo... can't be...
"Actually, now that you mention it,' I say, 'but I'm on day 3 of a gluten challenge so I can go get tested for celiac disease.
"Ohhhhhhh! THAT explains why you seized up between your shoulder blades then!' she excitedly shouts.
I can't get into details cus I'm not a chiropractor, I'm a semi qualified lab and vet tech at best, but something about the thoracic nerve being between the shoulder blades and how it is connected to your stomach... like I said, I cant explain it, but I understood it as GLUTEN IS MAKING MY BACK WHACK YO! (ok, too much Breaking Bad, sorry).

Anyone else have back issues with gluten? Maybe she's full of bologna and its just another one of those crazy things chiropractors say (I'm not here to debate whether a chiropractor is a REAL doctor or not. They make me feel better and that's all that matters to me), or quite possibly, there could be some truth to the matter. What do you guys and gals think?

Oh, I am going to ask my chiro about this! There are certain nerves running through certain vertebrate of the back.  My Atlas keeps coming out and C7 in my neck.  I have had this constant since 2010 when I took a trip to foreign lands and ate what I was served.  It was before I knew I had celiac disease, but already I ate a simple diet without wheat at home.  Before that trip my adjustments held for a few months at a time.  After it I have been having monthly adjustments.

lol. I have NO idea what an atlas is, but I'm sure it shouldn't be coming out! (unless its an atlas for geography).


Good luck!
