gstewart88 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsPossible CoeliacHi there,
I am new to this forum and just wanting to ask a few questions
I have had long term tummy troubles since getting a bad gastroenteritis as a teenager (now 23y) - intermittent diarrhoea/loose stools, chronic nausea usually after eating, epigastric and pelvic pain, fatigue, gas and 2 episodes of iron def. anaemia.
I have been tested for gliaden, antiendomysial antibodies and tissue transglutaminase and all came back neg. I have also had 3 positive faecal occult blood tests, raised faecal calprotectin and raised CRP.
I had a colonoscopy last year with biopsies and Dr said it was mild Crohns disease. Since moving to a new job I have a new specialist and he isn't convinced it is Crohns after all.
I have recently had another colonoscopy and gastroscopy - the Dr said everything looked normal but the biopsy results still have to come back.
So... my questions are can you have negative blood work but still have coeliacs disease?
Where do others with diagnosed coeliacs get pain? All through abdomen or specific places?
Im starting to get a bit fed up with all this!
Thanks for any help
