Guessing Game

March 22nd, 2010

Here we are at the emergency room at 11:00 at night, and once again we get to play the guessing game. What’s made my wife sick this time? Was it the rice w/cheddar cheese, exposure to the flour Saturday while making a cake, was it the weather change, is it the fact that she’s reduced her Lyrica dosage or just a  simple flu virus.

She’s been sick for the last three years, been on numerous medications, with just as many unwanted side effects. Though the gluten-free diet has been helping, every time she has a set-back, we have to play the guessing game.

Before she realized she was gluten intolerant, she was afraid she had developed an allergy to fish and seafood. Looking back it was probably the breading on the fish sticks, and the gel cap on the fish oil pills.

So, I guess the truth is, no mater what we guess, we may never know for sure, but we have to keep trying.

UPDATE: 3-26-2005

Given that I (no problems with gluten)  ended up sick with the same symptoms 24 hours later.  So, I guess we’ll chalk this one up to a flu bug. Thank you all for your support.
