  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thank you SO MUCH! One, for letting me know about Beth Israel. And two, for looking up the gastritis info. I attempted to search for gastristis info, but none of it was straight-forward. Knowing it can be linked is extremely helpful. I'm going to go check out your post-diagnosis info. I'm sure it'll give me some insight on the whole process. Oh, P.S. Your blog is awesome! I think you found a regular reader.
  3. Yay!! Another Boston person! I really thought that being in Boston would give me some of the top doctors, but unfortunately I think I got a dud. I ended up getting only the endoscopy because the doctor had a change in his schedule and couldn't do both. I don't remember a thing from the procedure, only waking up with a sheet of paper that said "gastritis" and that the biopsy results would be available in two weeks. Now, I was pretty out of it, but I don't remember a word being said to me regarding the procedure from the doctor or any nurses, which was disheartening. I got some blood word done after the procedure (which makes me wonder if the sedative they put me on would affect the blood work) and took a reeeaaally long, wonderful nap when I got home. I have never had heartburn, throughout this whole bout of intestinal distress, but the doc put me on prilosec. Has anyone ever heard if gastritis (inflammation of the small intestine) can be a symptom of celiac?
  4. Thanks, Richard. We'll see how it goes!
  5. Hi All I'm getting blood work, an upper endoscopy and a colonoscopy on Thursday. My doctor told me to eat the equivilant of two slices of bread a day for a week. However, I've been doing some reading and it sounds more like you need to eat 4-6 slices a day... and for much longer than a week! Has anyone else heard similar information from their doctor? I really don't want to go through all of the tests and have them turn out negative becase I didn't eat enough gluten prior to the tests. BTW, before I began eating gluten for the test, I was about two weeks gluten free (with good results). Thank you!!!
  6. Bikram Yoga Helps A Lot!

    Good to know Anna, thanks! I've been wanting to take a Bikram class for quite some time now, and now I have good reason to. Have you done any non-bikram yoga? I'm curious if kripalu, or any other types may have the same effect.
  7. One Or The Other?

    Thanks, Pauliina! I'm glad to hear that it eventually went away. I keep testing myself physically to see how hard I can go before I want to throw-up. I have a road race on the 18th, so that might be a good test Does the nausea happen to you when you're working out really hard, or do you have nausea in general?
  8. Hello All! This is my first post, so please excuse any posting errors I've only recently (within the last month) discovered my two month-long diarrhea (and a myriad of other problems) are caused by gluten. I've cut it out of my diet completely (with the exception of being given beef stew that had beer in it and being told it was gluten-free) for two weeks now. My movements have been regular which is wonderful. However, when I workout, and specifically when I play indoor soccer (short, bursts of speed) I feel extremely nauseous. So much so that I have to take myself out of the game. I did not feel nauseous when I was eating gluten. I would get stomach cramps and diarrhea, but now that I've cut it out I notice this urge to throw-up when running hard. Has anyone else had this experience? Do you think this is just due to my stomach "getting used" to being gluten-free? It's really affecting my hard workouts as well. Any comments are welcome. Thanks!
