viper added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsPossible Gluten Sensitivity?I'll try and keep this short. I was diagnosed with IBS a long time ago and several things were always tried with little to no success.
About 3 months ago I started having lots of visible shaking and feeling fluish all over, with nausea and the usual ibs diareah. Including some sweating episodes where I would just sweat profously mainly on my face.
After several visits to the ER and multiple rounds of Psychicatric drugs, we started doing some tests. One of the thoughts was Celiac. So I went gluten free. The Drs did the blood test with not much to show for it. I'm still trying to get a copy. After about 3 weeks I finally got an endoscopy done. I had been gluten free at this point for that period of time if not longer. The response I got was Mast cells were slightly elevated in my intestinal tract and that the villi didnt show signs of damage. The GI tells me that I can start eating gluten again when I feel up to it. I tried eating gluten this thanksgiving with my family (stuffing and apple pie). after about 3 to 4 hours of eating I "crashed" started flushing, sweating, and shaking all over again. 3 days later I felt good this morning but feel very run down and "shaky" like i have low blood sugar tonight. Even though I know if I test it I wont have low blood sugar. I've tried to keep eating healthy foods I havent touched glueten again for those days.
Do you guys feel like this could be Gluten Sensitivity? Is it usual for the effects to linger around so much and treat you like a roller coaster where part of the day you feel good then part of the day you fell like your going to pass out?
