Firstly I would say that you need to see your Doctor and ask for a blood test for Celiac Disease. Your family link to Celiac means there is a high possibility that you also have the disease but you could equally have IBS or A.Another. Best to go and see the doctor to be sure. I found that once I knew what I was dealing with things became easier.
In the mean time djs89 above has suggested Peppermint Tea which is great, but personally my stomach settles better with Fennel Tea (could not live without it).
I can relate to this thread. Celiac Disease does make me feel depressed at times and I have been diagnosed for over 4 years. I think the mental side of the disease is the hardest part, people just don't get it.
But let's try and look on the Brightside, we are no longer feeling depressed and suffering with gluten symptoms. I think if we all stick together and raise awareness of the disease the ignorant few who exclude us now, will have no choice but to be educated and accept the disease for what it is.
Hi there, I have had the same problem myself. At first I thought it was because of Lactose so I to cut out the diary but the wind and bloating did not go away. I have had all the tests and everything is ok, they think I have IBS due to stress.
Are you stressed? Perhaps it could be IBS. I am currently following a low fat diet, which has really helped. Try Fennel Tea also.
At this stage to suggest you might have a cancer without any tests (as the poster above mentions) is a bit much.
