Dec 21, 2018 · Gluten-free diet in Digestive Health

Yes! Any & all information is usefull. I have been gluten free about 2 years. I tested positive for the ' celiac' gene, but colonoscopy in Sept of 2015 did not find evidence of damage. My 2 docs say ' celiac' & 'gluten sensitivity'. My primary stated what difference does it make what u call it the result is the same. SO, no gluten if I want chronic pain & disorders to be less. Short list of disorders: peripheral neuropathy, hip bursitis & tendonitis, degenerative disc disease, celiac, SIBO, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, tachycardia, insomnia….I am also taking CBD oil as it really helps ME. I can't work, sold my house in LA county & been living off of for over 3 years in Oregon..It's almost gone, then what? Sorry it's so long…it could be worse 😁

Jun 19, 2016 · Is there a generic version of Cymbalta 60mg yet? in Depression & Anxiety

No i havent experienced that. Im slowly self weening myself off of cymbalta. Its really makin more problems for me in regards to sleep n appetite, both of which i already have issues with & cymbalta is making even worse.

Thanks Alyse, I’m SO frustrated with these docs! All I’ve gotten so far is Lyrica n yesterday doc put me on cymbalta, also take Vicodin but there gettin very particular bout that one ( weening my sister OFF because of governmental overreach & she has 3 back fusions!) Denied neuroma/bunion surgery, denied epidural shot for my back. Waiting for physical therapy but I’m kinda thinking they will deny that too.
My doc says there is now way SSA-RSDI will award me disability based on fibro alone, it’s just a ‘feeling’ he says. In pain & so tired of it

Ok, i hope this gets through. I dont know how these posting/socialmedia/forums work or how to tell the top from the bottom…
I was told i have fibrimyalgia in 2015 (although going thru old doc records show i was diagnosted in 2007, with pain going back to 2000) havent been given much help expeciallt since i came to Oregon in AUG to visit & got so sick with gastroenteritis i couldnt return home to work/live in So Cal. Since being here & on medicaid, since i havent been able to work. ive been told so much crap: its all in my head (somatized), its just a ‘feeling’ & SSA-RSDI will never pay disability to only a fibromyalgia diagnosis because it doesnt have a ‘test’ to clinically prove i have it & on it goes…
I also have small fiber pheripheral neuropathy & celiac genetic propensity, ( doc calls it:greater than 1 in 10 chance of celiac disease), Digenerative disc disease (which some call NORMAL FOR MY AGE), again CBD is enlarged n ive already had ercp a few years ago to open it up & now its enlarged again. Doc just did a blood test; primary bilary stenosis test.??
Has anyone else had such the run around n negating of your pain?
