  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Newly diagnosed with endo biopsy, although I have been on Dapsone for the past 11 years for DH.(dermatologist didn't stress how serious) Just became gluten free this month. I have had joint pain that came on suddenly for about two months now. I have never had GI symptoms. I have a positive ANA but can't get in to see the rheumatologist until May 21st! This pain lasts in multiple areas for about 48 hours then goes on to the next joint. I never know what I will be suffering from tomorrow. Shoulders so bad I can't move my arms, thumb joints red and swollen, my wrists, hips, feet. At night I can't even adjust the blankets in bed without wanting to cry. Did I mention I am only 36?! It seems to get somewhat better during the day when I am moving around but by night time I am severly limited. My family is sick of listening to me. Has anyone gone through this? How long before any relief? Im sick of walking around like I am 100 years old Any input would help me through this, thanks.
  3. [Does anyone see the Dr.'s at Froedtert in Milwaukee, WI? Im not sure if I should go there or to the University of Chicago Celiac Center... I have had DH for almost 20 years, it has been 11 years since a positive skin biopsy. Now I am having severe joint pains, shoulders, wrists. My family Doc did bloodwork that showed high Igg and Iga antibodies and an elevated ANA..........I want to go someplace that I know they know about Celiac Disease.. Thanks for any help............CleanChic5
