  1. Yes I had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy.  The reason I might have a sensitivity to gluten was from the suggestion from my neurologist.I have had stomach issues my entire life.  Nausea, constipation, stomach pain....
  2. I have been tested twice for celiac disease and both times my blood work came back negative..I have MS and thyroid problems. I ended up doing the radioactive iodine to kill my thyroid.  I have iron deficient anemia as well.  The anemia only started about a year ago. I had an endoscopy to see if I was bleeding internally.  The only thing that showed up was my stomach lining was red and inflamed.The doctors said that was from my use of Motrin for the last 8yrs.  Never a mention of gluten sensitivity.  Can you all of a sudden be gluten sensitive or was I born with it?     I am so confused about this...
  3. GFinDC, I do get brain fog and they figured that to the MS. I do have numerous lesions on my MRI of the brain.  Apparently the lesions are where people with MS get the lesions. The medication I was on for this test was an immune suppressant. So maybe that is why its negative. However when I had my test  a few years ago when I was on a drug that is not an immune suppressant it also came back Negative     The results of my blood test were   *deamidated giladin peptide antibody, IgG (DGP IgG)       VALUE  <0.4EU/ml                         REFERENCE RANGE <4.9EU/ml   *deamidated giladin peptide antibody, IgA (DGP, IgA)        VALUE 2.4EU/ml                            REFERENCE RANGE  <6.1 EU/ml / *anti-human tissue transglutaminase IgA ELISA (TTG IgA)   VALUE 0.2u/ml                           REFERENCE RANGE <10.3u/ml   *anti-endomysial IgA IFA  (EMA IgA                                     VALUE negative                           REFERENCE RANGE   negative     **total serum IgA by Nephelometry (total IgA)                    VALUE 147mg/dl                 REFERENCE RANGE >13yrs to adult 44-441mg/dl
  4. Hi NoGlutenCootoies My synptoms are numb and tingling in my hands and feet, burning sensation in my back, feet, arms, tongue. Also I have cognitive issues. I have hard times remembering things, finding the right words and forgetting what things are called. I am also wondering if the disease modifying drugs that people with MS take can help the celiac disease since they are both autoimmune diseases.
  5. Hi I am new here. I am hoping someone can explain to me what's going on. Here is a brief history. In 2003 diagnosed with MS. In 2004 doctor said no I didn't have MS and took me off all my disease modifying drugs. In 2008 I was re diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I was tested for celiac disease in 2007 and in 2013. Both times were negative. Also had a biopsy that also came back negative. Saw a new neurologist on Monday who said he didn't believe I have MS based on the fact that my lumbar puncture was negative in 2004. I do have many brain lesions that show on my MRI's. The only time the lesions increased was when I stopped the MS medication. How can the new neurologist say I have celiac disease and not MS especially when all my tests come back negative for celiac disease? Any help would be appreciated.
