rm7390 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsI have been reading a lot lately on celiac and it seems that I could be a candidate for celiac disease. My gluten-free seems to also be convinced that I must have this. For one, I am underweight and it is seemingly impossible to gain weight. I seemingly have many of the most common symptoms but the one that stuck out most to be is acid reflux. From what I've read this is only common in males. It is very very easy for me to get terrible acid reflux at night and it will keep me awake until I take pepto bismol or a few antacids. I will get acid reflux even when I don't eat before going to bed. The second symptom that stuck out most to be are my bowel movements. From what I understand if I have floating stools then there is a chance that I could have some kind of malabsorption. Depending on what I eat my bowel movements are sometimes quite painful. For example foods high in fat such as Mcdonalds will cause stomach pain around the abdomen and bad bowel movements. My next symptom I don't know what it could do with but I was hoping someone could help me. I have a somewhat physical job and sometimes when I am working, notably after drinking something with caffeine or eating something i get a dull pain on my lower left abdomen where my side meets my hipbone, its always on the left and always in the same spot and it isn't a pulled muscle. Anyway I was looking to see what others thought , thanks for any advice.
