  1. Always Feeling Cold

    Wow, I have always wondered why I was the only one in the house freezing their butt off. I cannot tolerate the cold at all. My hands and feet are the worst, it seems to get right into your bones and makes it impossible to warm up.
  2. Gall Bladder

    I know how you feel. I've been having stomach problems for as long as I can remember and it was after the birth of my second child that it started to become worse. Of course it took another 4 yrs for the doctors to take my pain seriously and figure out (for starters) that it was my gallbladder. I lost 100 pounds in that time because EVERYTHING I eat caused terrible pain (except lean chicken and curtain veggies). So I had my GB removed and thought that would be the end of it....nope pain was still there. Finally after being told that I was suffering with IBS for the last 4 yrs I've come to find out its Celiac. At least I'm on the right track now, that's all that matters to me at this point but yes I do have times where I wished I could have figured it out sooner. Hang in there You are not alone!!
  3. Thanks everyone!! I do make complete sure to have the area clean after every bathroom trip, that's not an issue. I will totally try the ant-acid and rash cream as well to ease the pain. I was also told this weekend that Bag Balm, which is used for cows to ease their pain when being milked, works good lol Sounds funny doesn't it lol Anyways, thanks again for your replies I've been gluten free 5 days now and I gotta say its certainly a challenge for me when away from home with the family. This is just the beginning!! Thanks a bunch, Tamara
  4. Hey everyone, my name is Tamara and I'm new to this site. I'm in the process of being tested for this AWESOME disease. I'm very ashamed to be using my very first post to ask this question lol but here goes. From what I've read I understand that diarrhea is "normal" for this issue. I'm on the can 3 to 5 times a day which has reeked havoc on my poor bum Does anyone else suffer from hemorrhoids due to being celiac? I can't handle the pain anymore. I don't understand how I can get them from having the runs?? I'm not straining so what gives. Possibly the frequency doesn't help?!?! I want to heal the pain but how do I heal if I'm going all the time? Any suggestion would be great! Sorry and thanks for listening to my icky question
