peach518 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsVery Uncomfortable EndoscopyMy niece, nephew, and sister were recently diagnosed with celiac disease. So, I looked up the symptoms and decided that I probably had it too. I had the blood work done two weeks ago and tested as a "weak positive". I had the endoscopy last Thursday and I had great difficulty. My doctor thinks that I have a very strong gag reflex because the numbing throat spray did not work as it should have. I will spare you the details. Has anyone else had this expereince? I am so scared that the results will be inconclusive and I will have to re-biopsied. I have vowed to not do the procedure again unless it is a mater of life or death.
Thanks in advance for whatever help you can offer.
