Here is the latest..all my tests came back negative..which is a relief..but then what is wrong with me? So I went to a preventative health/holistic doctor. I also came upon an article that sacoriltis can be caused from celiac/gluten intolerance. So I put myself on a gluten free diet. I also decided that maybe my husband and I were someone contaminating during intercourse so we use protection and finally I started b12 shots.
AS a result,my pain has gotten so much better I don't have to take celebrex. I am having a flare again and I am racking my brain trying to figure out what I did..ate the wrong thing..too much intercourse or what but it is so much better than before.
Anyhow..I think it is so wonderful just short of a miracle how my lifestyle changes have helped. My doctor doesn't think I am a true celiac but that i had toxins in my intestines that built up and then caused the inflammatory process. the Rheumy from the university hospital now says he thinks I have degenerative/ mechanical and not spondyloarhropathy. Since he said that I was more willing to get off celebrex. Had a scare with heart palpitations..that helped too.
So wanted to post so that you all would have some hope. It sucks to feel sick all the time and I am glad my persistence in research and finding right doc seems to be helping. B12 shots hurt..but my doc thinks they are helping alot. Has anyone researched yeast and how it can cause problems? I am thinking the gluten free diet helped me get rid of yeast and that might have effected me systemically.
So here is the score
traditional medicine (take celebrex and antidepressants didnt help) THE LOSER!!
holistic medicine listened and encouraged me (diet changes, vitamins, B12) THE WINNER!!
Take care to all of you..i appreciate your support and input tremendously.
PS when my four year old gets up in the middle of the night..I can help him now..that is so awesome!!
