  1. I replied to both the responses from mscurious and mushroom, but I don't see them posted. Thanks so much to both of you! It sucks that we have to go through this, but comforting to know we're not alone. MSCURIOUS...please let me know about biopsy results! Mushroom..thanks for the advice, I will definetely keep that all in mind
  2. Thank you mushroom for your advice. I will definetely keep that all in mind! My doctor recommended continuing to eat food with gluten for the next week, and going gluten free the following week to see if there's a difference in my symptoms, but after reading how gluten is literally a poison to people with celiac, I am terrified to eat even a piece of bread knowing it's damaging my intestine
  3. MsCurious, I'm sorry you are suffering from this same problem, but truthfully it feels comforting to hear I'm not alone. What kind of tests are you getting done? I got my blood tested and sometime next week I go for an ultrasound. I really hope it doesn't take too long to figure out what's going on, this is just so scary..let me know how it goes with you please! P.S. How old are you? I just turned 25.
  4. Thank your for taking the time to view my post! For the past year I have had severe abdominal distention. When I wake up in the morning, it is only slightly distended, but bloats out a lot after eating ANYTHING (sometimes looks like I'm 5 or 6 months pregnant, and lasts for hours). I also frequently have excessive gas. I finally saw a doctor today who suspects I may have celiac disease, but I won't know for sure until we review my blood work @ my next appointment in 2 weeks. I've been reading a lot of the posts on this forum and am suprised to not have read anyone with the same abdominal distention as I have. I do also have symptoms sush as unexplained anxiety from time to time, gas, heart palpatations once in awhile, and fatigue/low energy... but I do not have any sort of pain or cramping (unless I eat something heavy) and my bowel movements are regular and healthy. I suppose maybe symptoms vary between individuals with this disease, but I'm wondering if anyone shares my problem with the "permanent" distended abdomen! Anyway, I'm very nervous to possibly find out I have this disease. Not only will it be a major lifestyle adjustment (never eating bread anymore OMG!), but possibly developing osteoporosis, anemia, or becoming infertile absolutely terrifies me :/
