  1. Hey all - thanks so much for your kind responses! Will have a read of these with my Mum and will get back to you all.. thanks again!
  2. Hello All, How's it going? I'm hoping you can help me. I'm posting here on behalf of my Mum! She's had a lot of symptoms which point towards celiacs disease for a number of years, but thus far has failed to get a diagnosis from the doctors. She suffers from the key symptoms; diarrhoea, sore mouth/ulcers, skin rashes; etc. These rapidly decrease when away from wheat products. Two years or so ago she began having problems with the tongue -- it gets red, very sensitive, goes a darker colour -- was once bad to the point she could hardly breath! At first; the doctors thought this was due to an allergy to ibroprofen-- but then, a couple of weeks later, after eating a bread roll; these symptoms came back again. Somewhere during this process; she was diagnosed with H Pylori - which shares some symptoms with celiacs. She had treatment, a triple anti-biotic; which relieved some symptoms for a while, mostly to do with pain/bloating of the stomach. I should also add she has gastritis, and gastric erosion -- she was told this was quite possibly caused by H Pylori. She's had a few tests that have not found celiacs -- but it is in our family, first cousins, etc. I guess I'm wondering, has anyone had similar experiences, and found diagnosis hard to get? Mum is pretty certain it's celiacs -- although of course, neither her nor me are doctors! And the tests have not helped. Whatever it is, she is still suffering and it effects her life in quite a big way. She has also had the feeling recently, with her doctor, that he's not taking her seriously -- perhaps thinking nothing is wrong with her! Any thoughts/advice on next steps, or if you've had similar experiences would be very helpful.. thank you!!
