Lynne, I agree with Beverly - BULL ****!!

Jen, I love your photo. Lynne told me how young you are. I could not believe that so much wisdom comes from someone your age. I had been picturing you in your mid to late 30's. And here you are a very beautiful young woman, inside and out.

No, the picture in Lynne's avatar is Mouse, and the picture in Mouse's avatar is Mouse -- she just looks more like an ostrich in one picture than in the other.

Thank you Carla for explaining. At least YOU AGREE that I do look like that Ostrich. And what would make everyone smile if I took him away. He sure makes me smile.

Lynne, enough stalling - where is your photo.

I didn't necesarily say I agree, I'm staying out of that one! ... but the thing is, I love birds! We have four of them, so even if I did say there was a resemblance, it would be a compliment.

But I do think Lynne is stalling long enough.

Well, since we *are* women, I think we can call ourselves whatever we like ! However, that rule doesn't apply to the "guys!" :) I like to use all of them, depending on the situation :)

NOW--I sent Lynne the pic this morning--so its out of my hands! :lol::P

Jen e-mailed the picture of us . . . as you can tell, I DON'T like having my picture taken, but I WILL place it in my avatar . . . . TEMPORARILY. The other girl in the picture is Brooke, my son's girlfriend . . . . . . Both she and Jen's pictures are good. Mine looks pretty bad . . . . .

Okay, the file is too big, so I'm going to have to go in and re-size it . . . . . I'm NOT good at it, so it may take some time . . . again CUT ME SOME SLACK!!!!!!!!! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::angry::lol::lol::lol:

    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,  
    • after going gluten-free I felt great! but lately I have been feeling bad. the gluten symptoms are still gone, but now I am weak, foggy,  any ideas? doc did a full blood work up, all came back normal
