  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Not sure whether to use B12 supplements, can too much hurt you? My doc didn't even mention it and my level was 218, before celiac diagnosis. That was over a year ago, have been gluten free and gastro issues mostly gone but still have spacey days and disconnected feeling (medicine head) and forgetfulness sometimes. Would B12 pills help with this?
  3. Ugh Displaced Mind

    Lister- I think you should go to the doctor, worry about the bill later. Get yourself better, then you can cope with the rest. Give us an exact rundown on what you are eating and using for products and we can look into everything for you. We are here to help you, whatever we can do. Patty
  4. Throat Hurts

    Wow, I just picked up the Hall Fruit Breezers, the ingredients look okay, but it does say flavors. Thanks flagbabyds, that was a close one!
  5. Hi, I have a sore throat, what is safe to take for throat/cough drops? Thanks
  6. Real Sick With Flu

    Thank you Chelsea! I hadn't thought of the new Tylenol, after reading your reply, I called them, none of their new 500mg line has been tested yet., so that could be my bloating issue, ugh, along with this stomach bug, it's not good.....
  7. Real Sick With Flu

    I definitely have a bad stomach bug then. I am soooo weak. I also have body aches and chills, haven't checked my temp. I wonder why I am so bloated, it's really strange, before I got sick I wasn't bloated. I'm going back to bed, think about it later. I can believe it about the school Patti, I can't remember being this sick from bug before...........Patty
  8. 2 days ago I started getting sick with the flu, bad vomiting and D, sometimes together. I know it is the flu because my mother & nephew had same thing last week. I have finally stopped the D & V but feel like something's eating away inside my stomach, it's very painful and I'm very bloated. The only things I've consumed are Canada Dry ginger ale, orange Gatarade, Motts jello with fruit and Tylenol rapid release gelcaps. Anyone had something similar or know why I ache so bad? Any suggestions? Please? Second day home from work, I need to get back there.
  9. I was diagnosed with gallbladder disease when I was 6 months pregnant and put on a fat-free diet for the rest of my pregnancy. I was warned to be very careful because if there was a rupture, there could be danger to the baby. The diet stopped the gallbladder attacks but what do pregnant women with nausea eat? Toast & crackers. I had no idea at that time I had Celiac. I was sick for most of the pregnancy but when the baby was born, he was fine, and a pizza 2 weeks after his birth brought on an acute attack that caused surgery. Surgery was not bad, out same day, sore for a week. I would recommend getting it done and moving on with your baby making.
  10. Kahlua, Kamora, & Amarula are gluten free. I went to Baileys site, under frequently asked questions. Quote: Q 4. I am allergic to Gluten/Egg/Lactose/Nuts. Does Baileys contain Gluten/Egg/Lactose/Nuts A. Gluten: Please be advised that the whiskey used in Baileys is manufactured by fermenting grain, which contains gluten. Due to the presence of gluten in the whiskey components before distillation we cannot absolutely guarantee that there are no effects to coeliacs. As we are not qualified to give medical advice persons requiring a gluten-free diet must consult their medical adviser before consuming Baileys.
  11. Update

    Great news, keep your chin up! Great news, keep your chin up!
  12. Piece of cake, I didn't feel a thing...nice little nap
  13. Abdominal Distention?

    I was bloated some before I was diagnosed as celiac along with many other symptoms. But now that I am gluten free, if I get cross contaminated or accidently glutened, I bloat out horribly, way worse than before. I'm not thin, I'm about 165 lbs and 5'7" so I have a belly, but when this happens I also stick out 3 to 4 inches extra. I cannot fit into my normal clothes and it seems to take almost 2 weeks to go back down for me. Extremely hard to deal with since I work in a retail store. Someone mentioned taking digestive enzymes, will this help me? When I asked my gastro 7 months ago when diagnosed he said enzymes weren't necessary.
  14. Thanksgiving Issue

    I only have my rash between my fingers, but it is definitely gluten related. I've never had the DH test but if I am accidently glutened, out it comes.
  15. Don't beat yourself up about it, you've already given it up, I assume that you can't get it back at this point. I have a different outlook, just think how happy you've made someone else!!
