mommaspeikes added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHelp With SymptomsHello! I'm new to this, so please forgive me if I make any errors.
I have a 5 year old son who displays the following symptoms:
- extremely large bloated belly
- skin "itchies" aka "unexplained hives"
- tiny bottom, legs, and arms
He has been tested by blood and negative to having any food allergies.
Here is the crazy thing. When he wakes up in the morning, his belly is normal. He looks like a normal 5 year old. By evening, his tummy is HUGE! He does pass gas at night. He will wake up with a normal belly the following morning and the process repeats.
We have gone dairy free for approximately 2 weeks. I have not seen many improvements yet. Maybe I haven't given it enough time, or maybe I need to go gluten-free. Hoping someone has some experience and can offer me some advice.
