  1. One year check-up today. The results are...normal bloodwork and significant healing in the intestines and esophagus! Something new too...villi was present! I'll get the biopsy report in 2 weeks but this girls kicking celiac butt! If you're new to celiac or struggling you WILL get better. I'm not looking for 100% but a year makes a huge difference. I still have bad days, trials, and tribulations but that goes with autoimmune disease. Everyone remember we can control this.
  2. Help - Sertraline Or Zoloft

    I had a reaction. I wouldn't risk it. The side effects are too risky.
  3. Help - Sertraline Or Zoloft

    No Zoloft! I will tell everyone this as my life long mission. I took it and it caused me three weeks in a wheel chair, 2 months on a walker, then cane and 6 mos. physical therapy. I had parasthesia and muscle weakness in my legs. If you read the fine print this happens to 2% of those who take it. Not worth it!
  4. Did you check your hand soaps and lotions to make sure they're gluten free? What was the last result of your blood tests? Have your antibodies gone down? It could be another intolerance. I know that I'm also lactose intolerant but I can manage small amounts of dairy, but if I have too much I get an upset stomach and the big D. So you might eat a large amount of something your intolerant to on a certain day to give you that reaction. Just a thought.
  5. Alcohol Symptoms?

    Alcohol is hard to digest and with already troubled GI systems it's even harder.
  6. Is Benadryl! My body gave me hives for Christmas. Just a reminder folks, be extra careful visiting friends and family. I thought I was super careful and bam! What are some holiday entertaining secrets beside the usual call the host, bring your own and eat before you go? I'm going to add Benadryl as one of my "always take it with you" items. This girl learned the hard way. Folks, take it with you always!
  7. Celiac At Work

    Celiac or not my question is...is picking up bagels in your job description?
  8. Exercise is the best medicine for me. I had a very bad neurological response to anxiety/depression meds so I stay away from medicinal treatment. I control mine through diet, exercise, and natural light.
  9. I'm guessing it's the cold virus. Your body maybe trying to cleanse itself.
  10. I hope everything turns ot well. Keep us posted.
  11. Pancreatic trouble, I hope not. Clay color stools are indicative of pancreatic trouble. Believe me you do not want pancreatitis. It's the most horrible thing in the world. If you have pain in the upper back towards the right side that you eventually feel in your upper right quadrant you'll need to go to ER. I describe it as someone taking a power drill into your stomach. Taking amylase and lipase digestive aids will help.
  12. Fresh, raw fruit! Mineral oil will work too.
  13. Glutened!

    Well, it's not as bad as it could be, mostly GI distress. So I refuse to give into the "lazies" today. My workout was brutal but it definitely helped. My rule is no joint pain you continue working out even if it's stretching. Push, push, push.
