  1. I have had IC for many years. Put up with alot of pain, then learned about being a celiac. I was so mad, sad, just plain furious about having both problems and also having scar tissue that has adhered to my intestinal tract. It has taken a few years for me to get a grip and quit abusing my body...
  2. I'm glad that you were able to get some relief!
  3. I have had 5 abdominal surgeries (3 c-sections, 2 laparoscopies, 1 hysterectomy) I have adhesions that have decided to latch onto my bowel. I experience ongoing pain, often daily and dread any kind of bm. I recently saw my gastro. dr., who confirmed the adhesions. My options? Surgery or leave...
  4. I also have IC. My doctor was unable to find ulcerations on my bladder, but has diagnosed me with IC. Not everyone has the bladder ulcerations. Orange juice, anything with Cranberries, tomatoes, wine and stress all cause significant pain for me. I am being treated with Elavil at bedtime to help...
  5. I used to have numbness of my chin, lips and the left side of my face. In addition, my tongue used to twitch. I have not had this since I went gluten-free in February 2006. What are the symptoms of low b12?
  6. I was diagnosed with IC in 2003. I have been miserable the last 4 weeks. My IC starts acting up when I am under stress. Of course stress is part of my daily life. I went to a walk-in clinic last week thinking that I had a kidney infection. Nope, must have been the IC. I'm miserable. It's hard...
  7. I also have problems swallowing. I have problems with rice, potatoes, meat, fruit, veggies etc. I have been on protonix since my diagosis in feb 2006. I have also had problems clearing my throat. It seems like I have a chronic problem with this. Anyone else?
  8. I'm glad things are a bit better for you. I also have adhesions and they are currently messing with my bowels. very painful. No surgery for me either, yet... IC is bad at times especially with apples and oj. take care. Tara
  9. Michelle, I read your post and found that you have IC also and adhesions. How are those two issues going for you? Tara
  10. This thread is a great idea. Thanks. My story is also similar to alot of posts that I have read. I believe that I have had celiac disease most of my life. It makes me angry that it has taken me until age 45 to get to the bottom of all of the pain and misery that I have been through. Not just...
  11. I have had problems swallowing for the last few years. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in february 2006. Not sure if it is related, but I do have alot of problems mostly with meat and bread. I have heard liquids/saliva squeak in my throat sometimes. When I accidently was glutened a few days...
