  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Bone Pain

    Well guys...I appreciate all the advice but unfortunately I got my blood test results back yesterday afternoon to find out that I do not have Celiac's or any other kind of anemia associated with the bone pain. On to yet another doctor...more blood tests...more money...more meds... Thank you so much for your support and advice! Thank you.

    Why would coffee or corn make my bones hurt? I'm not doubting you, but I am a scientific kind of person who needs to know the chemistry behind everything. Either way, I will give it a shot! Thanx
  4. Bone Pain

    Thanx for your replies! No, I am not glutenfree as I have not yet been diagnosed (although the doctor is pretty certain). I called the on-call doctor this evening who told me that my pain is probably just so severe that the prednisone cannot take it all away. She also stated that I will have my test results back tomorrow. I was instructed not to go glutenfree until after the tests have been done or they would come back negative...that, plus I just had to have one last week of bliss before eating a whole bunch of junk that I probably won't like. My doctor thinks that I have osteomalacia because of my anemias and that is what is causing my bone pain. Either way, thank you for your support and advice - I will let y'all know what the doc says tomorrow.
  5. Bone Pain

    I am waiting for my blood test results but the doctors seem to think that Celiac Disease is my problem based on all of my symptoms and all of the things that they have ruled out. My question is this...my bones hurt more and more each day. The doctor put me on prednisone for the next two weeks to help alleviate my pain - I have been on it for 48 hours and I am still IN PAIN. I am 26 years old, I weigh 93 pounds and am 5' tall. Does anybody have any solutions that will stop this constant pain??? Hot baths are wonderful, but I cannot live in a bubble of hot water...OTC's don't work --- are you kidding, prescription narcotics don't even work! I feel hopeless. Please advise... Thank you.
