  1. I would like your opinion. My 2 year old is a normal toddler. I just have a few concerns. 1. Bowel movements are more on the squishy/smell side. 2. Rash on bottom(not typical diaper rash). He been trying to itch it like crazy. Diaper rash is not itchy. 3. Little spots of the rash are on leg. 4. Vomits after eating. Not after every meal. Its hit & miss. He will vomit one day & then go weeks with no episode & then he will do it again. Sometimes 2 a week. Always after he eats. 5. Hes got a slight protruding belly. Not too bad. Let me know what you think. Does this sound like your child?
  2. What The Doctor Said

    Sounds like you found a GREAT Dr. After your years of searching FINALLY!
  3. I have been having bathroom issues. Somedays I go multiple times. Solid then somewhat solid then D...? I dont know what to make of this?
  4. B12 levels according to the labs are from 200-900. Why is it so wide of a range? Well I have not had mine tested lately but my level before was 453...normal. My vitamin D was 17 I think it has gone up since. My ferritin level was 43. Not to low but could be better. I was wondering what your B12 levels were and how did you feel? Thanks guys!
  5. I was wondering how many have been diagnosed w/out having the weightloss issue. I understand that weightloss is a symptom but not necessarly. Thanks guys!
  6. A few years back I had an ovarian cyst rupture. I remember waking up in the middle of the night with severe pain. I thought my appedix was rupturing. I got into my dr first thing in the morning and got sent to the hospital for CT. Thats when they told me I had an ovarian cyst rupture. They told me to take tylenol and wait for the pain to go away. It did. Oh boy it was painful tho.
  7. Gluten reaction can happen 3 or 4 days after ingesting? This is interesting. I'm they type that really doesnt react right away like some. I'm more of a 2-3 days later. Ugh....Good to know. Thanks
  8. Glutenmommy- TMI that is ok. You cannot get answers without asking no matter how graphic. My rash isnt big just a few itchy bumps that turned red after I itched it. I did get it between my butt and my front area during my last period. I dont know if that because of that or not. Not on private area but close. It was more off to the side but not on thighs. Hard to explain. Dont think I've ever had it near anal area. Next time have your dr do a biopsy near rash not on. I do hope you find answers...I'm still looking also.
  9. I seem to get D in the mornings also. Not to say it doesnt happen any other time of the day...mostly mornings. I would be interested to know how many others have this issue.
  10. Misdiagnosis

    Impetigo? I thought you can only get rid of impetigo with medicine? I had impetigo once (ex boyfriend and I go into a fight and he drug me across the floor and I got carpet burns this is how) and the only way to get rid of it was medicine. I dont think you can just break out with impetigo. Just my opinion. Find a different dr next time.
  12. Vitamin D Deficiency?

    I am low on D25 hydrox???? I this the same thing??
  13. I'm not going to be much help (sorry) but has your dr. suggested getting a biopsy done? I think its something that your insurance company would be more likely to cover. Just a suggestion. More experienced people will chime in.
  14. I have not been on the diet because I must continue to eat gluten till I get tested. I went out of my way yesterday to eat 2 pieces of whole wheat bread to see what my instant reaction would be. Nothing really happened. Mild heartburn (very unusal for me) but other than that no running to the bathroom, no stomache ache, no nothing. All my problems seem to be more active in the morning. Like this morning....D again. Not solid not watery but very very soft broken up poo. Ugh....I just dont know. I am going to continue to monitor my sx when I eat gluten. Why is it sometimes I feel nothing and sometimes it hits me like a ton of bricks? This is such a fickle disease!!!!
  15. Can We Talk Poo?

    Thank you for the information. My poo does float. No food particles. Dark in color but not black. Like you said not firm but not watery. As for weight...no weight loss. That would be an added bonus tho.
