Thrills and Chills


So I came across this seriously scary wheat article last week.  Read at your own risk!  Some of his arguments are a bit hocus-pocus, some seemed pretty darn compelling, and either way it still rather freaked me out.  (Seriously, Maddie, skip it until after your vaca!)

I do think it is possible my extreme tiredness on the weekend was wheat-related... but this needs more scientific study (aka, go off wheat, then back on again for a bit, to see the effect) for me to be sure.  I think I'll just avoid wheat until after August long week, then actually go 100% off gluten.  (We're camping with a bunch of peeps [and their babies] that weekend, it will just be too much hassle to go off wheat AND dairy for that weekend)

In other news, I did see my family doc on Friday, and I got her to refer me to Dr. Love - since I still suspect endo.   If HE doesn't suspect endo, I'll drop it - he's a renown endo specialist.  This last AF visit was awful - much more painful than normal.  It's like its getting worse and worse.  What's up with that?  She seemed to think it wasn't a big deal that the pain woke me up in the night and I had to take some Ibuprofen to get back to sleep - but that just isn't normally how I roll.

She's also trying to help get to the bottom of my shaky problem... but I sorta think she'd headed in the wrong direction.  Oh well - she did order a full Thyroid workup, which is good.  Now I'm not sure if Dr A checked all things Thyroid or just TSH.  So can't hurt to have it tested again.

  1. I would love to shake these doctors and then slap them upside the head!!!! Pain isn't normal for anyone!

    Great seeing you Friday! We've gotta do that again soon!
