My muscles are sore and I have a rash. Not DH, just about 40 bumps all over my abdomen, back and scalp. Mostly on my abdomen.

I haven't eaten these kinds of foods in any quantity in over 6 months. But by the time I had Thanksgiving dinner ready, it was full of known sensitivities/allergies and it was all just to much to resist. :blink:

In my stuffing I used Food for Life millet bread and it has yeast, the marshmellows on top of my daughter's sweet potatoes had high fructose corn syrup (yep, I stole hers :o ), tea had caffeine :blink: and the fudge had butter (dairy) and marshmellows (high fructose corn syrup). :blink::o

I only had a couple of bites of the marshmellows, 2 oz of tea and 1 piece of fudge, but it appears to have been too much.

The stuffing was my only repeat offender. Can't have chicken and cranberries without stuffing. :rolleyes:

Granted I ate nothing but leftovers for 2 days, so that was not very smart either. :unsure:

Now, I'm back on my old diet and loving it. Anyone else ? Marcia

Edited: It just dawned on me that I am probably sore because I did not sleep well at all after having tea with caffeine. My fibro has always come back if I had trouble sleeping. <_<

Yep! I'm paying a little bit, too!

I knowingly and purposely ate rice products (stuffing, pie crust) like they were going out of style. I normally only eat rice once a week.

I am having mostly indigestion, some bloating and gas :ph34r:

It was worth it :lol:

Rice pie crust, yummm ! I didn't get any pie this year. :(

I'm not nearly as sore today as I was yesterday, but the rash is worse. So, at this point, it still was not worth it. :blink:

On the upside, we at least have some ideas as to what foods to avoid :D

Just thought I'd offer a couple of alternatives for these items that are friendly for you so that you don't have to go through this again:

1) stuffing made from short grain rices (gives a similar texture, though slightly different) and the same seasonings and other ingredients (with more water) as regular stuffing

2) sweet potatoes can be served just baked, with or without a bit of brown sugar, or with a ginger glaze (ginger, sugar, water poured over fry cuts near the end of baking), or mashed, or wedged

3) herbal teas that are very similar to caffeinated tea, or just a fun herbal

4) raw brownies have a fudge like consistency (if you choose) without any of those ingredients, or make them dairy free

I know that lots of people stick hard to tradition, but I'm a fan of making new traditions when the old ones just aren't working any more. :)

Thanks,

Yum ! Those sound good. I actually had my own sweet potatoes made with brown sugar and cinamon and was happy with them until I spooned out some of my daughters for her. Then it was just too much for me. :blink:

BTW, what are short grain rices ?

I love ginger. Have your tried crystalized ginger on your baked potatoes with EVOO and raw cashews ?

HI! I'm so confused...so why are marshmallows and tea bad? or can some people not have that for other allergen/intolerance issues? Please clarrify because I love and eat both of these things...

Thank you!

lol... I only made one version of each dish for thanksgiving. :) No multiples here. People could all eat the same thing.

short grain rices are ... rices that have short grains. :P the grain of rice varies in length, depending on the variety you get. basmati and jasmine, for instance, tend to be long grain, and the standard 'white rice' is often long grain as well. sushi rice is a short grain rice. arborio rice (risotto) is a short grain rice, and one that is, IMHO, a must for part of the rice blend for a rice based stuffing. there's also short grain brown rice availabe (Lundberg is the only brand I've seen so far). (note that this is different from 'baby' rice.) the short grain rices are more 'glutinous' (not in a way that's bad for us), in that they have more starch that will come out in the cooking - this requires more stirring and adding liquid slowly, but produces a creamy texture.

I haven't tried ginger on baked sweet potatoes, but that sounds like a fabulous idea!

some people have problems with corn syrup and caffeine. it's not an issue from a gluten perspective, however.

Marshmellows have corn starch ( I looked - I knew it was corn something ) and tea has caffeine. Both are problems for me and a lot of other people too.

Otherwise, kraft marshmellows are gluten free ... not sure which teas are gluten-free....

Hi :)

Marshmallows and tea are not bad foods, nor do *most* of them contain gluten. (Always check, though, because some teas do contain gluten--never seen a marshmallow that does, but anything's possible) Some of us have other food intolerances--corn (which is in marshmallows) is a common one. Also, caffeine can bother some folks. I can't over eat grains, or I get symptoms.

If you don't have problems with corn or caffeine, then those things should be fine for you.

Marcia--

I hope you feel better soon. A couple days back on your regular diet should do it :D

How is the walking going? I meant to ask you that earlier, but forgot :blink:

The walking is going great, wonderful, fantastic ... :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I am walking normal all of the time no matter how tired I am or how far I walk.

I absolutely love being able to walk !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was speed walking in and around people the other day and had to stop myself. For some reason, the people I was mowing over DID NOT understand .... :P

I still can not believe it. It took me several months to accept that I could actually sleep without drugs, so I am giving this a few months too.. I keep waiting to have a CFS relapse ... :ph34r:

I am trying to make myself clean up the mess the contractor made when they remodelled my bathrooms, so I haven't tested my legs since Thursday. Evidently, drop clothes are optional. :angry:

I never feel weak or winded any more either though. Things just keep getting better ....

Aren't you sorry you asked ??? Marcia

My memory is still lousy .. How r u ? Did u have mobility issues too ???

    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
    • I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis.  I was put on a steroid inhaler recently.  I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in.  You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac.  Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.
    • You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.
