Thanks for the welcome! I am new to this board and to Celiac so I am learning. I appreciate any help and suggestions. I look forward to reading more from those of you that have been through the newbie things!
Since December 2011 I have been undergoing testing for Celiac. The blood test come back "definately" positive. The upper endoscopy was "inconclusive" so I have had the genetic blood testing done and the capsule camera done. I have noticed alot of strange things happening lately,,my mouth tends to stay sore, my skin is really dry and scaly (never had problems with that before)it is all I can do to get up and move after sitting for a while. On Monday I ate 1/4 sub on wheat bread and went to itching (no rash or hives) and my lips seem to feel swollen along with the stomach cramps and diarrhea shortly after eating. Yesterday I noticed that after eating a biscuit again my lips felt swollen. Is this anything to do with Celiac? I get all my latest results on May 11.
