  1. Does/has anyone heard of the connection between celiac disease and Crohn's disease? I have recently had a lot of new issues, and am being tested for changes, strictures and the possibility of Crohn's. I didn't realize these two disease could coincide, anyone else run into this? And have some info to offer?
  2. 3 Years And Counting!

    I travel 4.5 hours to see him, that's how much I believe in him lol he promised he'd fix me the first day I met him, and he did. He's amazing!
  3. 3 Years And Counting!

    Lol Dr Stefan at Portland Gastroenterogy of Maine! He's pretty awesome!
  4. 3 Years And Counting!

    Thanks! It hasn't been easy at times, but it definitely gets easier as time goes by!
  5. 3 Years And Counting!

    Today marks my 3 years since diagnosis! It's been quite the adventure, but I can now say that I am healed and my health has been awesome! I couldn't ask for better a doc who has guided me through it all. Hope you all have a great day!!
  6. I got "glutened" in the last few days, usual symptoms but something new.....I can't sleep, and when I do it's disrupted by nightmares, sleep walking and a creepy crawly feeling. I've woken up sleep walking in the last couple days, wake up disturbed with nightmares, and then can't get back to sleep--I'll be wide awake for hours, like I've had mass amounts of caffeine at midnight! Going on day 4 with this, any ideas??? I'm exhausted all day, my body won't relax, this is all VERY new to me!! Help!

  8. I Can't Believe That Just Happened......

    Haha! A New Englandah I am! In fact, I'm a Mainah! A northern Mainer though lol where we speak more of a French accent, eh? but that accent isn't as fun when you're saying lobstah! ....makes me want lobstah too, mmmmm You all are very right, it would be awesome if as a whole, the gluten-free community could move forward and educate others. As we all know, for every one of us that is spreading the news about gluten-free and cc, there's always going to be one who is non compliant, non symptomatic or just not well versed in their disease. Perhaps we can try and get more info out there, it certainly can't hurt! PS: if you're a New Englandah and in the Portland area, you MUST go to Bam Bam Bakery!! (I don't work for them just love 'em!) Commercial St downtown P-town, dedicated gluten-free bakery and cater to other allergens as well!! Breakfast, lunch, dessert, catering, wedding cakes, etc. cinnamon roll for breakfast before my 4 hour drive north was just what the doctor ordered.......okay, he didn't order for me but he did tell me to check it out!! Thank you Dr. Stefan!!!!
  9. I Can't Believe That Just Happened......

    Haha! Yup my friends have dwindled over the years but that's fine with me, this one has never reacted this way. We were able to get passed it and go to a great place later in the week for lobstah, but my oh my that threw me..... And thank you all for your kind words and suggestions! As you've guessed, I tried all those things, sometimes it's a give and take. I've decided I can chalk it up to lack of knowledge, and a bad day. Next time, I will do my own research as I usually would.
  10. I've been a Celiac (diagnosed) 2 yrs and haven't ever run into this scenario. A friend wanted to go to lunch, and chose the place with a supposed gluten-free menu that her gluten-free coworker eats at "all the time". The eatery was set up a lot like a subway sandwich shop, was not subway! As we all know, the workers at such places are quite possibly contaminating food left and right without any idea. So when I saw this and told my friend I didn't dare eat there, she was beyond mad and couldn't understand why her coworker eats there and I wouldn't.....she really didn't care to even listen to the reasoning of cross contamination and how some people are less sensitive or braver than others. Never mind the fact that this coworker could just be gluten intolerant and cheat at times?! Seriously??? Flipping seriously?! Ugh, I'm trying to let it go because we've been friends for our whole lives, but where in the H did this irrational thinking person come from?? This is definitely a first for me, So upset
  11. YES!! You're totally right, it's Canadian! How did I forget that given that I'm half Canadian and live literally 3 minutes from the border! haha Ps...I wore my Birki sandals with wool socks just the other day, hehe luckily it's a bit warmer here, well yesterday was anyway. It hit 70° with the wind it was more like 50° but we'll take it! This am it's raining but supposed to be nice this afternoon mid 50's! I hope it warms up in a months time, I've got the first camping trip of the season booked to St Andrews! Can't wait!
  12. 2 Months Gluten Free & Still.....

    Welcome! I'm seeing some great suggestions here, so I guess I'll jump in too! Lol I'm a big advocate for the food journal, doesn't have to be anything more than a little notebook that will fit in your pocket. Something that you can jot down what you eat and how you feel, so you can track what makes you feel yucky, for lack of a more scientific word.
  13. New Problem

    Sounds very familiar, I recently had a wicked bout of the "flu", of the stomach variety. Holy old crap (pun intended
  14. Gluten Or Dairy?

    I'm all for the food journal, I as well have an issue with dairy unfortunately. I started to notice it more frequently in the last few months. Knowing that I was being diligent about gluten, I started a food diary to pin point other foods. Surprise surprise...I refused to drink milk as a kid which has continued into adulthood. I love ice cream but it about kills me, has for years...hint hint, sheesh, you'd think I would've caught on quicker lol denial perhaps
  15. I try to stick to a pretty regimented exercise plan of running/biking and strength training 6 days a week. I recently went on vacation and slacked off, only walked twice everyday, rather than running. When I returned and began my routine again, I got severe leg/feet cramps that night. They've continued off and on for a week, but lessening in severity. I've tried extra water, made sure I got all my vitamins in, ate bananas and other healthy foods. Any ideas on this, and how I can prevent this in the future? Wondering how I could have avoided this scenario.
