      Undiagnosed - Talking With Doctor
      I am new to this forum and have had possible symptoms for over a year - actually longer if I look back at my history. I have been to the doctors multiple times and still have not had the doctor agree to test for celiac.

      I have a "lump" in my upper right abdomen, but all testing has shown that everything in my upper abdomen in normal. I have had multiple ultrasounds and there appears to be nothing there.

      I also am unsure as to what a normal bowel movement is. I alternate between bouts of constipation and diarrhea and pretty much have for as long as I can remember – just thought that was normal.

      Most recently, I spent 8 hours last night/early this morning in the ER for sharp pains in my lower right abdomen. Didn’t think it would be related, but just had a friend tell me that they get lower right abdominal pain after eating gluten – which I realized is all I ate yesterday and also had a lot of since Christmas Eve :-/

      They ruled out appendicitis and ovarian cysts, also kidney and liver issues based on ct scan, ultrasound, and blood work – that’s going to be a pretty penny.

      Hopefully tomorrow I can finally talk my primary care into doing some celiac testing, because I notice when I don’t eat gluten I am feeling much better.

      Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
