    Good luck with the house viewing, get the bread on and the coffee brewing

    ohh,, why dont they just do all gluten free to be sure? My daughter in laws family do loads gluten free and i think all christmas dinner is as she has a cousin who needs to avoid it.

    Im thinking of making a lemon drizzle loaf, i made one last week with a new recipe i found and its the best i have ever tasted!

    Re: Hi Everyone

    Thought i would stick an update here and means i get to moan and bitch at the same time
    As i have mentioned i was diagnosed with under active thyroid and put on thyroid meds. Had my blood tests last week to check the levels and decide if the dose is right and then had my docs appointment yesterday to discuss the results. Well i was feeling so ill and in so much pain lately im totally sick of myself, so i was completely stunned when she told me my levels are fine now and the dose is ok. I practically broke down however embarrassed i was. Honestly im in pain more or less all over, its pain and stiffness in my joints and muscles. So for now she has ordered more blood tests ( I think for Rheumatoid Arthritis) and given me some tablets for the pain. It was bad enough i should have to be on thyroid meds for life but i got over it and its only one little pill each day. But these for the pain are normally diagnosed as an anti depressant but are used in small doses for chronic pain. Im really not keen , i have only taken one last night and already feel a bit spaced out and tired today, So its a choice between pain or being zombie
    Has anyone here got RA or someone in their family? how do you/they cope and what meds if any are they on?

    Re: Hi Everyone

    My sister in law had some pretty severe reactions to the thyroid meds she was first prescribed. Joint pain, I am pretty certain, was part of it.
    Don't just take the Doc's word for it. make him/her do their proper research.

    Re: Hi Everyone

    RA is vile, my mother had it. I've no idea how it can be successfully treated, hers certainly wasn't.

    To the best of my knowledge it's an auto-immune response to something but I could very easily be wrong. The only treatments I've heard of - the ones they used on her - seem to be as much mumbo-jumbo as a doctor of medicine might have used in the sixteenth century. Take the hair of a recently-dead mouse and boil it in nettle juice, that level of medicine.

    You'd not want to know how poorly my mother coped, it would depress you.

    The bright side to all this is that if you do find a treatment which improves matters you can feel very pleased about it, how's that.

    I'll go and look, I know nothing.

    thanks Lars,,, yea i was unprepared at the appointment yesterday, but i think i will be more ready to ask a lot of questions at my next appointment. Unless they call me back in after the bloods tomorrow, im not due another appointment until about 3 or 4 weeks.

    Im already depressed wondering how on earth i can keep on coping with this,, my only strength so far was coming from the fact i was awaiting the thyroid results and just assumed they would need upping and my symptoms would then start to improve. Hence when i was told all was ok with the thyroid problem now, i more or less immediately fell into a pit of despair!
    I found some information but havent even looked into it properly as yet, and the meds she has given me is certainly none of them on the list.
