Gosh I hate docs so much and I always have to go to one! Every 3 months to my gyn for my chronic pelvic pain, and to the psych for my other meds. I promise I will ask the gyn about everything falling out at my next visit. I have told her about it, but she just brushed it off as something that happens when you have a hysterectomy sometimes. And they do test my urine each visit, but I'm not sure what they test it for, lol. Not pregnancy!
i just got a new pcp. Did a yearly check up and did not bring a list with me. Stupid me! I know my cholesterol is high, but it's been high since it was first tested when I was 16. They say some people genetically just have high readings. My dad did and he always ate low fat. That's the only things they told me, but I know now from this board I should ask to actually see the results.
thats interesting your accident reset your body for a few months. I bet that was very unexpected!
now off to read your article thank you!!!!!!
Regarding sacroiliac joint pain - I went to physical therapy for it. They can check to see if there is a problem. If there is they teach you how to put yourself in. You do it many times a day. Eventually the problem goes away.
I am not getting enough vitamins my body needs before and after being diagnosed with celiac. Can anyone recommend great vitamins to help me get back on track. Everywhere I go the vitamins itself contains gluten or was made a gluten facility. I don't eat a lot because I am still getting sick so I need to find a way to get more nutrients into me.
It sucks when you've taken precautions and they don't pan out. Take heart however, although it feels like you're back to square one but one exposure doesn't negate all the healing that you've gone through. Eat simply and safely for now and get back on track. You should feel better soon.
As for eating out, it's the same as when you learned to ride a bike. You dust yourself off, learn a lesson about that venue and get back on the bike. You need to balance risk and reward. Too far either way isn't the way to go.
Hope you're feeling better soon
My 9 year old daughter has the exact same marks as you. It is being dismissed as her doing it to herself. I honestly don't think she is but I do know once she gets the sores she is a chronic picker which does not help. The main reason they say it is self inflicted is because they are only on her arms and legs - never her torso. Sorry I don't have anything for you but I was wondering where you are getting your sores?
I pulled my daughter off of gluten a year ago and they seemed to have cleared and two months ago I let her eat whatever they served at a birthday party and all the sores are back (still).
