  1. This is very interesting information! It's believed that my mother's celiac was triggered when she was five months' pregnant with me after having an emergency appendectomy. She became extremely anemic, and I was born with Rickets. My three siblings clocked in at over nine pounds...
  2. This is exactly how DH presents on the fingers of my left hand! It hasn't occurred in a number of years, but, boy, that is just how it looked!
  3. Okay, let's look at this picture. Vitamins don't work for you. Your anxiety has skyrocketed. What might this mean? For starters, it could mean that you're not absorbing your nutrients properly because you may have celiac. You might also not be absorbing your hormones. When you can't absorb...
  4. Welcome to the Board! I'm sure many folks will have helpful advice to share with you. Regarding the teeth and hair, you might try adding magnesium as well as calcium. Brands of magnesium that are easy on digestion are Nature's Way Magnesium Complex and Bluebonnet liquid magnesium. Also, a good...
  5. At the conferences I've attended, it's been pointed out that the blood flow to the frontal lobes is reduced in celiacs who eat gluten. Also, plaques can form throughout the brain. Take a look in the articles section of this site, because there are some interesting articles on neurological damage...
  6. I buy most of my supplements at a specialty healthfood store, and I buy others online. As for the chelated forms of manganese and zinc, I believe I buy Bluebonnet brand, and I just take one capsule of each. Only take the zinc for a few weeks....but if you feel you're getting better by taking it...
  7. It sounds as though you're a strong candidate for having celiac or gluten sensitivity. I should have mentioned that I had horrible joint pain from the time I was a young child--the doctors thought I probably had Juvenile Arthritis....but, of course, they were wrong. Mouth sores are very common...
  8. Oh, my--MANY of us have suffered from RA and general joint pain. Celiac and gluten sensitivity appears to cause it. I agree that you should try a gluten-free diet (but you have to be strict!), and you may be need to take magnesium, manganese, silicon, and collagen. Believe me, if you do, you should...
  9. Just would like to add that if you do take TOO MUCH Vitamin B complex, it could be a problem; however, taking a daily Vitamin B complex is safe--B vitamins are water soluble and are not stored by the body the way that fat-soluble vitamins are.
  10. Okay, now that I'm at home, I've had a chance to look up other possibilities for sore/geographic tongues, and it appears that a number of B vitamins could be responsible. These include folic acid, B-2 (riboflavin), and B-6 (pyridoxine). You might try taking a good Vitamin B complex in addition...
  11. This symptom is common in cases of Vitamin B-12 deficiency, which is a deficiency common in people with celiac. You might request a lab test from your doctor; or, alternatively, you can begin taking sublingual methyl B-12 tablets (2,000 mg twice a day) to see if the tongue issue resolves. It should...
  12. Okay...Dani helped me with a link that I can share with you. This photo is not for the weak of heart--it might even scare small children. My photo shows many scars from a glutening on my face and neck that occurred more than four months ago, but which have continued to re-erupt due to the iodine...
  13. Dani, I sent you a private e-mail (hope that was okay!), and in it I explained that I'm officially diagnosed with celiac, and my gastroenterologist told me that if he had seen my lesions even before diagnosing me with celiac, he would have told me that I had DH and was most certainly a celiac...
  14. I'd like to upload a photo of my current (and severe) DH outbreak on my face and neck to show what the scarring can look like, but I don't know how to upload photos. How is this done? The photo is on my iPhone and filed in my download file on my computer. Any help?
  15. Happy Mum's Day to all of you wonderful mothers Down Under! I know that you're celebrating your Mother's Day today, while we in the U.S. will be doing so tomorrow. My daughter, who lives in Sydney, sent me some of your lovely Butterfingers shortbread cookies and Haigh's chocolates, so I'm thoroughly...
