  1. I've had canker sores before...I thought those always hurt ?? This wasn't painful at all.
  2. No, that's the weird thing - it felt plenty moist. The sensation has since gone away - I still have no clue what that was all about. Before it went away though, the underside of my tongue got sore - it kind of felt like the frenulum (the little string that attaches your tongue) felt swollen...
  3. I have NO idea what this is, as I've never experienced it before - but it's VERY annoying !! Last night's dinner was prepared by the other family member that is gluten sensitive. He's not *real* knowledgeable (ex: he thought spelt was a safe grain), but he does pretty darn well. I think I inadvertently...
  4. As an update - I spoke with my son's pediatrician and told him I was considering trying an elimination diet in the near future. I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant, so it may have to wait until after the baby's born. At any rate, I asked if he would be willing to document my findings so the daycare could...
  5. Vicky, I can't believe I didn't think of that angle - just trying the diet and then getting his pedi to document for me. Talk about overlooking the glaringly obvious !! You are so right - I think he would be more than happy to help out with that. I am so fortunate to have a true gem for a pediatrician...
  6. Right - and that's the thing - things he "should" react to, he doesn't seem to, and things he "shouldn't" react to (in other words, hasn't in the past) he'll occasionally seem to react to. I'm suspecting he's having delayed reactions - but exactly to what, I'm not sure of.
  7. You're not being obnoxious at all - I really appreciate your input, as well as everyone else's. I know that you're right about "positive" foods not necessarily giving your problems. One food he tested positive for was peanuts and he's never had a problem with those or any other nut. That always...
  8. I just wanted to add that there are a couple reasons I'm not going right to an elimination diet (though I think trying that does make absolute sense): 1. He's in daycare and although I do have some control over his diet, I don't have the kind of control that I could have if I didn't have to...
  9. Yes, I do understand that. I'm looking at the ELISA test for food allergies specifically. I was thinking of using EnteroLabs to check for celiac disease. I've seen quite a few people praise EnteroLabs, but haven't seen anybody say anything about the ELISA test for allergies. We're in the very preliminary...
  10. You may not like my answer but you should know the bad possibilities. I had this test and it was covered by my insurance. In fact I had this test 3 times at different hospitals. I came back negative each time. I was in full blown celiac at the time. Have you tried the diet with him to see if it helps...
  11. Hi - I'm new here. I have a 2 1/2 year old son who is having GI issues, and was diagnosed with milk/egg allergies when he was about a year old. Despite supposedly "clearing" the allergies, having negative stool tests for fat/blood, and a negative celiac blood panel, he still occasionally has bouts...
