hercules added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsCould My Daughter Have Celiac?Hi
We are just waiting to see a paediatrician as my 8 year old has been complaining of problems for years now.
She has abdominal pain that wakes her up at night and the carries on through the night. More recent months this has occured more frequently accompanied often by headaches and sweating at night.
She often gets sore around her vulva and bottom and although this usually goes away on it's own after a few days, this time it hasnt and we've been told it's developed into a fungal infection.
SHe's been tested several times for an UTI but always been negative and she's had an ultrasound done which has ruled out any need for surgery.
She has now started to vomit when she has stomach pains although not every time. Occasionally her lips swell and she has had sores around her mouth a couple of times which made me think it was a food intolerance.
However, her bowel movements are fine. She eats normally but is thin but not officially underweight although not far off it.
My grandmother had celiac which made me wonder although I realise this is a distant relative.
Could this be celiac?
