I don't even know if it's a specialty drug or just a new brand name drug. It's Savella, which is technically for fibro but we're going off label. My doc says more than half his patients he gives it to can't tolerate it, because it makes them so nauseous they can't eat. (So far so good for me.) But for the few it helps the results are breathtaking. I'll try just about anything at this point. I'm trying to avoid a 5 day hospital stay for ketamine. :ph34r: But at the same time, I want to preserve what function I have left in my left hand while I can. :)

 

:ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:  :ph34r:  :ph34r:  :ph34r:  :ph34r:Savella :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

 

Proceed with caution!

 

That is the wonder drug that the Fibromyalgia Expert at UCSD trialed on me when I was dx'd Fibro 7 months after Celiac Diagnosis.

Was to titrate up in thirds....

did not make it past the first third

 

Of course no meds have ever worked properly in this f$#%ed up system o' mine.

 

Hope it works for you...but do be careful.

Oh, I'm aware of how awful this drug is. Could make me sicker than a dog. Could cause liver damage. Could do this, that or some other crap. And yet, my next best option is a ketamine treatment. I'm willing to throw as much crap at the barn wall as I can to see if any will stick before going to ketamine. If Savella is scary, the type of ketamine treatment I would get is the stuff of nightmares.

Going to California Pizza Ktichen!

 

Hah, I started something. lol

 

I almost went there but I love the pizza down at Malawi's and wanted to try again. Turns out my husband's favorite local pizza joint closed. Tragic because they had the best pizza in Utah. At least he has lots of options though and found something he liked.

Oh, I was gonna say we stopped by the grocery store and picked up a 12 pack of Vanilla Cream soda. (generic store brand, but it's incredibly good) Since we don't drink we're calling this our beer and pizza night. :lol:

Pizza all around....

 

Went for a 2 hour drive to get the only gluten free pizza I can have, the ones I make myself are really not that good.  We got four pizzas all together.  One for daughter-in-law (taco pizza), one for me (ground beef and green olives) 1 for Hubs (pepperoni and green olives) and brought one home for my son.

I really want to try the california pizza kitchen now that they do gluten-free right.  Do they use the same prebought crust as a lot of other places?  The closest one is an hour away by m rheumatologists office, and I go monday, so I will probably go in and eat if I have time.

I don't know where they get the crust.  I think  all CPKs get the same crust.  I know some chains buy crusts or buns locally.  I think the crust is pretty good for a gluten-free crust.  There are only 4 choices - pepperoni, Margarita, BBQ chicken & spinach and mushroom.  I think you can also get a regular cheese pizza, too.

Made mint jelly today with chocolate mint. So good! What I want for supper is to eat toast and jelly until I'm sick, but I don't think that is a reasonable plan. So, sticking with the original plan, we'll have a pork tenderloin and some sort of veggie type objects. Maybe I'll see if I can find a salad on sale.

Just tried making a fake pizza last night using a gluten-free tortilla as the crust. It certainly wasn't pizza as I remember it but it was super easy, and the tortilla wasn't so bad because I really don't like gluten-free bread of any type. Because it was thin, I didn't notice the flavor so much.

The best part was that it only took about 10 minutes from the time I started to being able to eat, despite that the tortilla started out frozen. Add some spaghetti sauce and some grated cheese, seven minutes in the oven (375), and I was eating - so rare to have a quick meal these days.

I will definitely do this again, but am kicking myself for not adding some black olives or bell pepper, both of which I have in the house, though it would have added 5-10 minutes to my prep time.

I think the only downside is that the "crust" is so thin that you pretty much have to eat it with a knife and fork.

OOh! OOH I know! I know!!

I love Bonefish grille !! We went Saturday....chilean sea bass with mango salsa, jasmine rice and their new side which was a zucchini/tomato ratatouille type thing (glad they dumped the chickpea thing). The server was great. She asks "want me to check and make sure that's gluten-free? the district manager is back there."... well, sure. thanks so much .... and please bring me another Bombay Sapphire on the rocks with olives on your way back, you sweet girl. :)

 

I skipped the creme brulee this time (I know what am I nutz?)

Our Bonefish has told me twice that that zuchinni thing isn't gluten-free. The waiter last night said it probably is but this kitchen is probably over careful about things that aren't on the gluten-free menu. A bit lazy at thinking for themselves, maybe? That's Ok. I LOVE asparagus!

I do too. I would probably eat asparagus every day if i could lol.... but she said the asparagus was "very thick and chewy tonight"...lol..

I appreciated her honesty. I would never venture off the gluten-free menu myself, but she guaranteed it was after checking in the kitchen with the big guns

people--and I had no issues with it.

I'm trying to dump some lbs...and the hubs sends me this. (he is "ice cream man"--our friends gave him  that nickname lol)

He makes me laugh. He thinks he is giving me a subliminal hint to break out the ice cream maker. Subtle eh?

We have a great vanilla bean ice cream recipe that can be a base for 'add-ins", but this looks good too.

Just sharing the idea....especially for those who need some fatter  butt cheeks.

"This rich, silky custard base can accommodate nearly any flavor you can imagine..."
 
ADDY...here's a way to use up some of that mint! ;)
 
And let me be the first to say:.

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
