goodtime78 replied to adambryant's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsMindwarp, I was thinking if the blood test is positive I would just go gluten free and see if symptoms go away after time. I am already having a colonoscopy this month. It's prescreening to make sure I do not have Chron's or something else. Before I have surgery on the fistula. So I figure that is enough poking and prodding for now. Irish Heart my plantar fasciitis is now a mild discomfort and in the left heel, when it first started it was really bad. But 2 days after it went away, than the next day was back again like it was at the first which is weird! Anyhow I will keep you's posted on results and guess I will stay on gluten so if test come back neg they can do further testing. Thanks for the replies!
goodtime78 replied to adambryant's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHi There. I am new to this but I just had to comment because I have similar symptoms. Have not yet been diagnosed yet, but had blood work done last week now waiting on results. I have also been diagnosed with plantar facilis, pardon the spelling, but never really thought it could be connected. Also have dry lips too. My stomach has felt uneasy for weeks, lots of gas, having really loose stools, heartburn and acid reflex. Joint pain has been really bad lately and I have been diagnosed with a fistula. It's just really nice I could find some others with the same kind of symptoms and its not all in my head! Should also mention celiac disease runs in the famliy, grandmother, aunt and some cousins. Think I should try going gluten free starting this week and see if things improve. Anyhow sorry to ramble on. Cheers!
