  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. to answer everyones Q's: ive had an upper GI, it was fine. ive been gluten-free for over a year. they suggested zelnorm or reglan, both which ive taken. but im going to do Reglan again. and the problem is with the Stomach emptying, not anywhere else in my intestines from what i understand...
  3. I had a stomach emptying scan done today and they called me back with my results. it takes 220 min for my stomach to empty all its contents!!!!! most people take 90 min. wow, so there is something wrong with me. does anyone else have this problem and how did you get treated? they asked me if i had taken reglan and zelnorm- which i have taken both with no luck. so now what will they do? the dr office didnt call me back yet today, hopefully theyll call tomorrow! im just curious if anyone else has experienced this and if they found any relief. thank you!
  4. i pulled this off of another site for you, so hopefully this is all correct information! i know i seem to pretty much have all these symptoms.

  5. ok, she said its at the 7-11 on friendship avenue in bloomfield. if you try it, let me know how it is!
  6. Great Value is labeled, but Sam's Choice (which makes the trail mix) does NOT label gluten-free
  7. ill email her right now! get back to you as soon as i hear back from her!
  8. My boyfriend and i buy this trail mix alot. being that its the only one of their mixes that i think would be gluten-free (some of the others contain choc. chips, or sesame sticks, or seasonings). i had problems with it too at the begining of my gluten-free diet. now i seem to handle it fine. i would think its ok being that M&Ms, nuts, and raisins are all okay to eat. i had noticed that i have a problem with nuts sometimes- they make my stomach gurgle a little.
  9. just for other pittsburgh-local people: my sister, who lives on the southside, was in a store in bloomfield and said she found gluten-free beer. ive never had beer, so i have no clue if the gluten-free stuff would be any good. but she said she would pick me up some next time she was there, just something new to try! i didnt think anywhere around here even old the stuff. so if you know of anyone who would want to try it, let me know. ill get the name of the store. sorry im kind of off track here, but i thought it was something interesting!! oh and ldeverhart: walmarts great value products post "gluten free" on them. at least you can get some basic products there, cheap. and you know theyre safe!! -lets see how many times i can edit one post... i need to learn to type today!
  10. I had emailed jack daniels questioning about their country cocktails. This is what they sent back, thought i would post it in case anyone else out there may have questioned this product In Pennsylvania, as well as a few other states, we have two different versions of our Country Cocktails. The spirits-based beverages are sold in liquor stores and come in 7-ounce bottles. It is generally accepted that spirits-based products are gluten free, but with the addition of sweeteners in Country Cocktails, there is always the chance that some contamination could occur between wheat grains and those used to produce the sweeteners. We also sell the malt-based Country Cocktails, and these come in 10-ounce bottles and are found in grocery stores or wherever beer is sold. Anyone with concerns about gluten should usually avoid malt-based products. I hope this helps. Thanks again for writing. Regards, Kiernan and your friends at Jack Daniel's
  11. What Is A Dh?

    Dear/Darling Husband Here- i found a site of internet acronyms http://www.gaarde.org/acronyms/
  12. i still dont feel well from taking the new stuff earlier. i think i may have to just throw it all away. this is horrible. i cant eat, i feel soooo awful! i dont know what is wrong with me... but i REALLY hate this
  13. i just went to the store today and got a different kind that is FOR SURE dairy free. still had some major tummy gurgling after i took it also. i took some stuff to calm my stomach down, and i feel better. when i looked up acidophilus side effects, it says it can sometimes cause gas for a little while when you start it. so im hoping it goes away! i want to keep giving this a try, but its so uncomfortable!
  14. So i decided to try taking acidophilus pills. i went and spent a decent amount of money on pills (gluten-free of course). well ive taken them for 2 days, and both time after i have taken them, my stomach has hurt SO bad. I decided yesterday to take them before bed, that way maybe i would just sleep through the stomachache. But no, i was wide awake all night with a weird stomachache and major gurgling gassy stuff moving around in my stomach. This morning i feel better, but does anyone have any idea why im getting like that after taking the pills? is this normal?
  15. Chinese Herbalist/acupuncturist

    Fiddle-Faddle: im sure im not much help, but i did try accupuncture. even though i am gluten free, i still get sever nausea everyday. im willing to try anything to cure it, and my nutritionist suggested to try accupuncture. it was no help to me at all. little 90lb me gave birth to a 7lb baby all naturally- yet i thought the needles hurt!! i think i was too focused on how uncomfortable it was (such as the needles in my feet and ears) to even pay attention to anything else. i wish it would have worked for me. it was worth a shot! but no luck here... im desperate though- ill take any suggestions for nausea if anything out there has any. i am also fed up with the medical system, i feel your pain!
