      Thank you for the reply Lisa

      I'll take your advice and get a doctors appointment asap! I will also continue with my current diet until I've see the doctor.

      Thanks again!

      Hi All
      Hi all,

      My name is Ben, I'm 27 years of age.

      Going back a couple of years now, I started to notice that I had a bout of diarrhea pretty much the moment I had finished eating my lunch at work. At first I put it down to some sort of sickness or - heaven forbid - simply signs of age! The diarrhea would never last (like when you get a proper illness) - it would pretty much vanish the moment I had been to the toilet.

      Two years later I'm still experiencing it. I noticed that it was always after I had eaten my lunch. I also noticed that I didn't tend to get the same problems over the weekend (which I realised could possibly because I don't eat the things I eat on a weekday, over the weekend [i.e. sandwiches etc] as I tend to have cooked meals on the weekend).

      Recently however, I have started having the same problem but in the morning - when I prepared my sandwiches/lunch for work!

      I have no idea why it has taken me as long as it has to do anything about it, but this morning I decided to "Google it".

      My first search bought up lactose intolerance. Reading that, some symptoms did make it sound a possibility. Then it had a link to IBS. This sounded less like my issue in all honesty. Finally I seen a link to Celiac Disease. By the time I had read the article I was 99% sure this is what I suffer from.

      Going by the sypmtoms, I should probably consider myself quite lucky. My symptoms are literally limited to diarrhea. I don't get many headaches so those that I do get are unlikely (well, I think) to be as a direct result of Celiac Disease. I am however tired ALL the time - so I guess this could very well be a symptom related to it also.

      However - and I'm not sure if this is possible - as I mentioned earlier, I've now started getting a bout of pretty much instant diarrhea the moment I even TOUCH bread!?!? For around the last 6 months (maybe a little longer) I get a bout come on the moment I start to prepare my sandwiches. I know it might sound insane, but I definitely don't eat anything when I'm preparing them so it's all that I can think of?! Is this known/common??

      Given the above, do you think it sounds likely I suffer from Celiac Disease?

      I guess I should probably still see a doctor just in case, but from what I've read I personally think it seems as though I am a sufferer.

      I must admit, it's a fair daunting thought as it's pretty much a lifechanging condition. Obviously all of you will know exactly what it feels like but - yeh - did it feel this daunting to many of you?!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Hopefully I'll hear some of your replies shortly.

      Many thanks,
