Question About Posting

I just made a post, yet when I click on that forum, I don't see it. It DOES show on the outside of the forum, but when I go in, it's not there. And what does "pinned" mean? Thanks.

"Pinned" means that a moderator has checked the topic, and it is in the category it belongs in. If your post shows on the outside, but not the inside, it could be on the second page. Posts to a topic show in chronological order, from first to last. You might just need to scroll further down or go to the next page.

If you select "view new posts" in the control menu, you'll see it pop up as well. (I find that the most useful way to navigate the posts myself, but we're all different.)

I would assume that you're referring to when you START a new thread. If a topic is not yet pinned, it is towards the back of the forum. When a moderator reads it and decides it's in the correct forum, it will be in the front. Until then, you need to go towards the back of the forum to find it. Topics are organized as follows:

1. Pinned topics (chronologically)

2. Not yet pinned topics (such as yours if you have just created one) (chronologically)

3. Moved topics (chronologically)

I am also confused. I'm having the same problem as Sharon C. Both of our original posts are marked "moved." What does this mean?

"Moved" means that your post was under the wrong topic, and that it was put into the correct one.

    • I do have a referral to another GI at one of the top hospitals in North Carolina. I'm just waiting on the call to schedule an appointment. 
    • OK, that's good news, not the milk in the cabinet, that you've not cut gluten! Stick with it and wait for the test results. If they're positive then it will be another endoscopy, but this time with the biopsies. If negative, don't despair. Your GP may still refer you but if not you can try the gluten free diet for yourself. Keep a food diary and follow all the instructions here in the newbie thread and establish for yourself if it's the problem. If it is, don't stress overmuch about a diagnosis. I tested negative but gluten is a big problem for me and many others. The good news is the diet worked for me and it may still for you. In the meantime, try and eat as well as possible and take a good quality B vitamin and multi vitamin to try and boost those levels. Good luck!
    • No I havent cut out any gluten. I cut out stuff I knew hurt me. Like watermelon. Which sucks because I LOVE watermelon.  There are days that I cant even get words out. I can think a sentence and just cant get it out. I constantly stumble and feel drunk in my head. I'm hoping these daily shots of B12 I'm getting will start to help some.  Yesterday I put the milk in the cabinet    
    • Hello and welcome Its good that your doctor has ordered the celiac test, not sure why your GI didn't, as you say perhaps he was presupposing IBS... You mention cutting out food, you haven't tried cutting gluten yet have you? That can throw the results of any testing. You are best to stay on it for now at least, once testing is done it would be worth trying the gluten-free diet regardless of results. Dont lose heart, be persistent, get those answers and best of luck!
    • Hey Kez and a belated welcome to the forum  Sorry your post didn't get an answer, sometimes one slips through.  Re your results. The number prefixed with the H is the level of antibodies detected. The second figure should be the range beyond which the test is considered positive. Usually that's in the form of a range like this: So for the quoted test above a figure more than > 10 would be positive. I just can't tell from your post what the range is.  I suspect less than 7 was negative so you've either scored a weak or a full positive depending on the scale. Have you posted all the info that was on the test?  Here is a little more detail about what each test is looking for if you want to know the science: http://glutendoctors.blogspot.co.uk/2009/01/interpreting-lab-work-gluten-sensitive.html Coeliac can certainly play havoc with your skin. In my case I found dairy was a big offender as well. Best advice I can give you is to stay eating gluten till your endoscopy. Ask your health provider if its possible to call asking for cancellations if you want an appointment sooner. But stay eating gluten so you get an accurate result. If its negative, try changing your diet regardless. 6 months without gluten and dairy may sound scary but if it cures your health issues you'll never look back. Best of luck!
