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.
