ashchaff added a topic in Celiac Disease - Teenagers & Young Adults OnlyHelpI started getting sick in high school randomly and it started getting worse in college (I am 22). I had an old roommate with Celiac disease so I thought I would try seeing if I had a food allergy since I kind of knew how that all worked. Well, gluten was making me sick so I got tested for Celiac after I already started the diet. I was told I did not have Celiac but to just stay away from it. I cheated a lot on the diet at first because it was hard but now I have been at it for about 6 months and do not really cheat anymore because I know how sick it makes me.
In the past few months, I have slowly felt like the pain is coming back. When I eat gluten, I normally throw up. This is not happening but I have stomach pains, my throat gets super dry, my chest starts hurting, gassy, I get heart burn and I just feel weird. I do not eat anything with gluten in it so I don't know what it is. I do not wanna go to the doctor even though I know I should because i do not have time for all the testing.
I was just wondering if anyone else ever had this problem and what they did. I have read that I should probably cut out dairy but I am in denial that that is it because gluten is hard enough to cut out. Is it possible I am just getting more sensitive and its a CC problem? I did notice that when I eat french fries, I start getting a horrible stomach ache and terribly gassy.I used to eat them with no problem. I eat them with ranch, so I don't know if its CC with the fries or the ranch. Any advice would be great
