      Thank you all!!!! I guess there is part of me that wants "proof". I will hold off for now. Even though my family thinks I am crazy!!!!!!

      If it continues though gluten free, I will have to be tested...

      Is Enterolabs Worth It?
      So I am new here and looking for help.

      I had my gallbladder removed 4 years ago. I did not have gall stones. I have never been over weight and am what people would typically call slim. I still had issues after gall bladder removal, so I took Welchol to stop the runs for 3+/- years after.

      I still had problems and in the last year, started having serious stomach pain - debilitating. At least once a week, I would have to stay in bed. I kept a record of what I ate, showed my GI, etc. He did endoscopy and a biopsy, which turned out negative. I think I had the IGa blood test - also negative.

      All last summer, regardless of diet and exercise, I looked BLOATED! The bloating was in my face and belly area. I had to start wearing size 6's to compensate (I have always been a 2/4). While a 6 is not big, it was really weird for me. And I was still having the stomach pain.

      I decided a couple of months ago to try low carb - hence NO gluten at all. No chance with low carb. The bloating went away after about a month, I felt better - less fatigued, no gas, no runs, etc. Oh, and I used to get a circular rash on my inner left arm. That disappeared too! I recently went to Jersey to visit my dad, and went gluten again - pizza, subs, cheese steaks, etc. The rash immediately came back and I was in the bathroom a lot.

      While I feel that I definitely gluten sensitive, I'd like to confirm for peace of mind. I also had a reaction to eggs recently, and would like to be tested.

      Has anyone had experience with Enterolabs? And do my symptoms warrant testing?

      At the end of my rope....
