Thanks!

If it is Foreman that has it, and this week's two-parter refers to him getting sick, then all three episodes are actually tied in together. I hope it's not the mother that almost drowns her baby! Foreman having it would actually be good, then maybe they could continue the storyline through successive episodes, and maybe would understand more about us! Especially if they showed Foreman having to be extremely careful of cross-contamination!

Karen--A policeman was shot, and came to the ER with strange additional symptoms that the team tried to figure out. Dr Foreman went to the guy's appt. (that was a pigsty) and collected samples to check for toxins, etc. Dr Foreman begins to show signs of the same illness and is put into a quarantined room with the policeman, who is dying a painful death. The policeman dies, and Dr Foreman is scared to death he is next.

Hope everything is settling down a bit at your house! :)

Sure! It was weird! A cop was acting high while arresting a thug, and the thug shot him, but the bullet hit his badge ( I think ) and deflected to his temple (so the shot didn't kill him) and he was laying on the ground laughing histaricly (sp?). House didnt see why he would be laughing like that, so he sent the three muskateer's to work. Forman checked out the cops apartment (which included a secret pot house!). They ran "tests" and found nothing wrong with the guy, and not really anything in the apartment or his work. So when the guy got worse, house wanted to do an MRI.

But the cop had a bullet in his brain. So house went to the mourge (sp? again, trying to type this up fast) and shot a corpse in the head and tried to do an MRI on the corpse (to see if the magnet would pull out the bullet) and it did! It was gross. So no MRI for the cop, or the bullet pulling out of his head would kill him. And Forman was laughing at it, and that tipped everyone off that it was not normal for him to be laughing. So they secluded him in a clean room with the cop. And when Cameron went in to draw blood from Forman (she was in a clean suit, you know, all plastic with a hood and O2 supply) he was trying to get her to go back to the apartment, because Forman figures that it has to be something at the apartment b/c he got sick, and he was the one that went to the apartment.

She tells him that House won't let them go back (because look! Forman is sick!) and Forman takes the dirty needle that she just used to draw his blood, and stick her in the leg, breaking the barrier, and exposing her to the mysterious disease. So she goes back to the apartment "to find out what it is, not for Forman, but for me, because now I will get sick" but house shows up outside the apartment b/c he knows all! LOL

So House and Cameron think it has something to do with bird poop and the pot stash, but Chase proves that theory wrong, and the cop crashes and Forman is trying to use the paddles to save him, and then you get the "to be continued"!!!!!!!!!!!

Whew......

(edited, I had "chase" where "cameron" should be LOL

Chase is actually the aussie guy, the girl is Cameron. My friend is actually poker buddies with both of those actors, and I got to meet Hugh Laurie a couple weeks ago, which was awesome. ( and slightly heart pounding)

Nope, its here in LA. The exterior overheads are somewhere else, not sure where, but all the stuff with the actors is done on a sound stage here. Hugh and Jesse ( Chase) relocated to here for the time being, and Cameron has been living here. I work at USC and Brain Singer is an SC grad, so they all came down to talk about the show. It was fun, you can tell they all really like eachother and have fun on set.

Jesse is REALLY cute in person, even cuter than on TV.

Ok, those of you who watched last night's episode, (Wed., nite). Did you see the previews for next week? I'm not sure how Celiac is going to tie in with what I saw in the previews. I hope we're not excited for nothing. Anyone?

possibly because of the seizures... seizures was one of my symptoms. For many years I was dx'ed with non specific seizure disorder. When I was 14 after having surgery to remove a tumor in my skull, I was also tested for epilepsy and had to be on seizure meds for a long time. I didn't have epilepsy so they couldn't figure out why I was having seizures. whenever I get accidentally glutened one of the first symptoms to come back is the seizures. They are really scary.

I'm starting to wonder if the main storyline isn't actually going to be about Celiac. Maybe it'll just tie into one of the subplots...like a girl walks in with a stomach ache and House tells her to stop eating gluten. the end. lol. I hope it's not something like that but you never know..

I am so sorry for you, nini. That must have been really scary. I've heard of people having seizures with gluten, but didn't know that was a symptom you had. I think the only reason I ever got diagnosed was because my body decided to take the "classic celiac symptoms" route. If celiac is affecting the lady they showed with seizures on the preview, that would certainly open the door to the show's story being able to disclose the many varied and seemingly unrelated symptoms that celiac can cause. I know GIG NA did consulting for the show, I just really, really hope the show does a good job for us. I want a sneak peek :)

    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph 
    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
