Quick Hello

8 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say a quick hello. I was out of town for a week with no PC and then Saturday got hit with a stomach/head/body virus. Needless to say it has wiped me out and I have not been able to even sit at the computer. I am still recovering from it and feel awful but at least I didn't have anything with gluten. Imagine how much worse off I would have been. I remember times when I would get sick but never get better.........that's because I was encouraged to eat cereal/bagels for breakfast even when I wasn't hungry......just to keep up my strength! who knew? The gut problem I am dealing with now is the irritation from Advil Liquid Gels ( i checked them out and they are gluten-free) which I know will get better in a few days. I am sure that this bug is starting to leave my body!! yeah!

Hope you are all hanging in there!

Happy Memorial Day!

thanks for the well wishes...........My gut is still sore and sensitive.....My IBS has acted up from all of this. I guess I have to baby it for a few days. I tried eating lentils!!!!...big mistake..oh my gosh........I was so bloated for 2 days and then yesterday had some chips that blew me up too......(no gluten but I think the oil got me). Temporarily back on zelnorm and zantac...(just for a few days to help it along)

The picture is kind of fuzzy so it doesn't look like it should but it's good enough that I'm not gonna mess with it lol.

The girl in the picture with me is my best friend chelsey. :D

Mel-how are you feeling now? Maybe you can do things this coming weekend that you would have done over memorial day weekend.

Hi kaiti,

i was actually in Miami for a week right before Memoral day and got back that thurs. Who knows....maybe I caught something on the plane!

the weather was nice and the beach was magnificent! We went to the new Hard rock Casino and of course south beach and then my niece's high school graduation. I took my brother and his wife for a few days too and it was a blast...in spite of the dietary challenges. My IBS has been acting up big time but I tried not to let it get me down...I wore loose things and didn't eat too much...but when the spasms hit boy were they bad.

all in all..........a good time!

hope your holiday was good too!

    • My daughter did not test positive for celiac (6 week gluten challenge after being gluten free for 2 months).  So she is technically NCGS. One of her worst symptoms is leg pain. It was a chronic problem when she was 7, to the point where she could no longer play soccer. At 8 we went gluten free because of GI issues and the leg pain went away. It came back with the gluten challenge and again went away when we went off gluten for good after testing. If she gets glutened, that is one of the tell-tale symptoms. She has had to use crutches because the pain is so bad.  And when glutened, the pain usually lasts about 3 days. 
    • Thanks raven and awol--I think she will feel much better hearing that these pains could be due to her celiac.  I don't know about the Epsom salts-never asked-so I definitely will.  I think further compounding it right now is that the doctor did not want her to take ibuprofen for 7 days before the procedure and not sure if Tylenol is allowed but she can't take it because it messes with the continuous glucose monitor that she wears.  Only 4 more days.   I will try to see if my primary can or will run a full celiac panel for me.  Left him a message asking why he didn't test my immunoglobulin a and whether we should be running the full panel.  I have encouraged my husband to test as well--he did just have a colonoscopy and endoscopy last fall--looking for other things but would they have been able to see celiac if there?  He has bad acid reflux and they were just doing the colonoscopy since he turned 50.  My other daughter-who has Hashimoto's-was genetically tested for celiac through Prometheus labs about 6 years ago due to our family history of autoimmune and she was having bad stomach issues--that came back negative.  So I think (hope) she's good?  
    • Omg I love quiche.  https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-quiche-lorraine/1d20d2e5-e2cd-4b2a-bc83-38bee7736463 i have trail mix for breakfast. Its nutty goodness is high in protein and helps me stay full.  
    • Yes. I'm broken.  Will try the adderal this weekend. And report back. ennis, your stuff sounds great. Will look into rounding up ingredients. I've been on a. about 12-13 years ago for a year or two. Worked fabulous for me. Used to love it. Then one day I decided I wanted to quit it, and I think I went cold turkey and it was hard. Brain had become so used to it. Want to do it differently this time and not take it 7 days a week. With my new job starting mid august I'll need to be absolutely in tip top condition so I'm thinking about taking it just during the week and getting some rest on the weekends. Looking forward to having it help me drop a couple pounds too. Just sitting around at home (and doing a lot of sitting at my pt job this summer) is doing nothing for me, with no motivation to do the exercise bike even.
    • I get muscle spasms and cramps too. When gluten issues flare it gets annoying. As other posters said magnesium and b vitamins help. Of course when so damaged you don't absorb it is a challenge. As Raven said I get unbelievable back pain / muscle fatigue. Upper  back between shoulder blades and lower back which refers the pain to my left hip. Had it 20 plus years. While gluten-free it improved dramatically flooded back with full force rage during my challenge. Huge set back I still am working on 10 months later. Does your Dr allow an Epsom salt baths? I find them beyond helpful for aches/pains after a DC introduced me to them.
