sjdm1234 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsJust Tested....still Don't Know What's WrongI went to my doctor about 2 months ago. I was advised to be gluten and dairy free for a month and a half and then start eating gluten again. During that time, my symptoms were nonexistent and I felt better. But when I started eating gluten again, my symptoms returned and I felt that my previous symptoms were worse. I just had blood tests to test for allergies to wheat, milk, etc, including Tissue transglutaminase IgA. I just received the results and it seems that they are negative. Could they have come back negative because after being gluten free, I only started eating gluten for 2 1/2 weeks? It is frustrating that the results came back negative and my symptoms are back. I just want to know what my diagnosis is or if its something else. My doctor didn't seem very knowledgable about gluten sensitivity and celiac disease, which from reading from many posts is very common. What should my next steps be? (I 'm waiting to hear from my doctor as I just got my results a few hours ago). In a way, having the test come back positive meant that at least I knew what was wrong but having them come back negative, it just feels that I am back to square one.
