You guys, I just have to complain to somebody...

I was so sick last night.... :( No details....too gross.

Let's just say it involved me and the "throne"....chills, dry heaves, upset stomach, basically, the works.

Honestly, at one point, I just curled up on the bath mat, too weak to make it back to the bed. :blink:

Way too much drama for 4:00 am in the morning. :rolleyes:

The only unusual food that I ate yesterday was a taco salad from Wendy's which I thought was gluten-free :blink: ...maybe my tummy was having other probs. besides gluten though.

All I know is I was Sooo sick! :(

Anyway, enough about all of that. I just needed to vent. :rolleyes:

Thanks for reading.

-Julie

I know how awful you must feel. I hope you feel better soon. Just try to keep it light food on your stomach until it gets back to normal. Try drinking teas like peppermint too...that can really settle your stomach :D

Even if you didn't eat the salsa, fast food places are among the worst for cross contamination.

Thanks everyone for your well-wishes! :)

I am feeling better. I didn't eat much yesterday. I tried to give my tummy a break...and made sure I only ate things I was SURE were gluten-free. :rolleyes:

Good grief! I haven't felt that bad in awhile. Thank you everyone for your understanding. ;)

Blessings. -Julie

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
