I like to watch swimming and gymnastics too. I love the water anyway but i also like to watch gymnasts because it just amazes me all the flips and tricks they can do.

They hype it up so much on TV that I almost get tired of watching even before it's begun. But having a couple friends over for a pot luck to watch the opening ceremonies. Wonder if they can top China? :rolleyes:

I love the stadium jumping and Dressage stuff.

One of the swimmers, Dana Vollmer is Gluten Intolerant! They did a little news blurb about it after she won her gold medal.

This is the video link to the CNN story. I thought it was really cool. Gives me hope I might be able to run again some day.

I am suffering from Olympic fatigue......I am glued to the set and need this to end so I can get some sleep! :lol:

I love it all but I have to admit China did a better job with the opening ceremonies. I love London and the UK but it was more like a Hollywood production and soon got boring. You just cannot beat what China did with the movement all of those people lined up and synchronized! It was so different than anything else done so far.

    • Sometimes this happens, odd as it might be, you have to be eating gluten for the test first off daily. We call it a gluten challenge. Second some people due test negative on the blood test but can have celiac which is why we consider the endoscope and biopsy the golden standard. Also the gluten test back when you had it done previously was much less accurate then it is now days or at least it seems.  Do you have your numbers? We have had many cases where the doctor said it was negative...and the idiot could obviously not read the test cause when member posted their lab forms we can see it obviously positive. What ever the case we know what the issue is now and your on your way to getting better. Unlike most AI disease we know the cure and fix for celiac is a strict gluten free diet. So you can now begin you road to healing......and yeah I know that feeling of finding out the nerve issues....sadly nerve damage is VERY slow to heal unlike gut damage. But it has it's odd messed up benefits, I have most coordination back but it comes and goes in waves. Funny thing, I can grab stuff out of the oven or burn myself and the reaction to it delayed or non existent pain wise. So they do not bother me. I can cut my hand and go "oh look I should super glue that back together" without the pain, I just logically deal with it and do not have much panic or pain unless it is VERY deep.
    • This has been my life for the past three years! Oh man! I have had every muscle and nerve test known to man and...nothing. The doctors finally stopped trying and just referred me for cognitive behavior therapy.  I'm still confused about the negative blood test though?
    • Thank you @Megamaniac - I don't hear about chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened, so it's good to hear of someone else. My current symptoms aren't bad, just annoying. It's hard to tell if it's anxiety tightening my chest, or something else. But since it's only been happening since I ate that damn tortilla, my guess is it's gluten-related. My doctor made me have an echocardiogram and stress test to rule out cardiac issues before he would do the endoscopy (this was a couple of years ago). I learned that telling a doctor "my chest tightness gets worse when I walk up a hill" makes everything else grind to a hart until the heart gets checked out!
    • They use the same fryers for everything, so the fresh fried corn tortilla chips are gluten contaminated when they get dropped in the fryers.....
    • Yes, gluten ataxia is one form where it effects your brain and nervous system. I lose feelings in my hands and feet, have all kinds of muscle issues when even traces get introduced via CC or walking through the bakery section of the grocery store -_ - Last time I got glutened at a restaurant back in 2016 I got home and lost full motor control and collapsed on the floor and started vomiting unable to move my body.

      Your veggie issues made me think of a few other things. I can not eat those veggies in the produce section, they put some kind of veggie wax on them that makes me vomit no matter what, makes a waxy film in my stomach and they float.....I have to buy farmers market fresh, or canned no salt (del monte canned no salt spinach is my number 1 vitamin a and k staple in omelettes) Other members have issues with glyphosate and have to have organic produce that is not treated on the farm with these chemicals. Some members develop histamine response issues so foods are limited by histamine number and how they are prepared. Just a few things to consider. UPDATE I suggest supplementation to deal with those nerve issues. Celiac causes issues with b-vitamins, magnesium and a bunch of others. So supplementation works wonders. Here are my suggestions Liquid Health Stress & Energy + Liquid Health Neurological Support 1 tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage like tea.] Either Doctors Best Magnesium or Natural Vitality Calm. If you have constipation issues calm is suggested. Note start off small dose like 1/4 tsp slowly raise the dose to the full amount. Some of use need more or less, depending on activity levels etc.
        Liquid Health Vitamin D drops might be needed, some of use have issues with this also.
        We suggest starting off eating whole foods only, dropping dairy and oats (some of us react to oats just like gluten). You can try introducing processed gluten free foods later.
