  1. I have to agree with Daisee also, maybe I am biased or maybe it's just that I choose not to judge people by what they do in their private lives if it's not infringing on anyone else.
  2. Thank you Tiffany. I guess I just have to be patient and see what the gastro. says in a couple of weeks. I just keep reading so much about it and I am freaking out a bit...this all came out of left field All I can do now is hope for the best.
  3. Hello. I am a few weeks shy of turning 27. I have had stomach issues since I can remember. I have had an endoscopy performed years ago to check for ulcers, it was negative and I was put on nexium (which did nothing). I have also been told I have IBS from time to time. About 10 years ago I tried to donate blood and was told no - I was anemic. I am always tired, no matter how much I exercise or how well I eat. My main problem is TERRIBLE discomfort after I eat - MAJOR bloating and all that good stuff! Anyhow, I just moved to Houston and decided to find a PCP and get a physical. I told him my history and how I feel sick 9/10 times after I eat. He mentioned celiac disease, first time I'd heard of it and suggested we run a test. My results showed a "weak positive" for the IaG antibody. It also showed that I am still anemic. I have an appointment with a gastro. in 2 weeks. But, I am MEGA stressing b/c this is all foreign to me - I need some advice b/c 2 weeks is a lot of time to wait and all this googling is taking a toll . Does the weak positive, along with my constant abdominal discomfort mean that I probably do have Celiacs? If anyone has a chance, please let me know! Thanks so much. Allison S.
