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!

    • Thanks Barry. It's just up the road from me and it's a place I know very well. Some of my family were there last week for a gig, it's a frightening thought.  You are most definitely not alone and you've found a good site. There are a lot of accounts on here which helped me join the dots and work out what was happening with my own reaction to gluten. The move to a new job may not be coincidental btw, additional stress is linked to changes in celiac presentation. In women pregnancy can bring it about. It makes it easy to dismiss it as stress related. If you've found the answer now you can look forward to healing and hopefully some unexpected health dividends if it's affecting you in multiple ways. I stopped eating gluten and found near immediate relief from brain fog and a lightening of depression. What I didn't count on was the disappearance of chronic back pain that I'd had off an on for many years. There were a lot more examples like that as my time on the gluten-free diet progressed.  The rheumatoid pain in my hand went too. I put together an faq for the diagnostic side awhile back which may be of some additional help. or at least offer some good links to further reputable info:  
    • Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
    • Saturday was the symptoms I have been feeling amplified big time:  Terrible nausea, head ache, dizziness, stomach gurgling, fatigue. And the constipation/strange BMs.  Wasn't prepared for that one.  I sort of took Sunday off and felt a bit better, now the dizziness is ramping up again.  I'm planning on taking a break once a week. Hopefully that's ok.  I do have an appointment with a GI for June 7th. There were no openings until mid July when I called and while I was speaking to the nurse someone must have cancelled and so I grabbed the early June appointment.  But this is all like deja vu. This is exactly how I would feel growing up and most of my life.   Headache, dizzy, nausea.  And the sores on the roof of my mouth!  Ugh. 
    • Also, can I buy the udi's and keep them in the fridge, or do they need to be frozen? 
    • Ennis_TX Thanks so much for your reply.  I am just not prepared to go through the medical procedures required to confirm I have it. I will just have to be satisfied in knowing that I feel better avoiding gluten. My wife recently began working with a gal that does have full blown, and did have the biopsy and everything, and now she is passing lots of advice to me through my wife. Your experiances do seem to be similar to mine. I have the mental stuff and the tingly fingers too! AS you know, there are just SO many side effects, it easy to confuse it with any number of other diseases/food intolerances. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
