  1. Thank you for replying. For those two reasons, I feel like I shouldn't waste my time and money (whatever ins. doesn't pay) on these procedures! But will probably have them done. Good luck and thank you again.
  2. WOW! Your store is VERY similiar to mine. Thank you for replying and sharing. I, too, have joint pain. I've been to the orthopedic doc several times getting x-rays trying to figure out why. First he blamed it on back-to-back pregnancies, then early stages of arthritis, then cardio exercise. I did try a two-week strick gluten-free diet when my daughter got diagnosed, and honestly felt great. I just felt like without the "true" diagnosis, it was just because I was eating "better." Going to have the endoscopy and colonoscopy done. He said he will look in the duodenal bulb also. That is where they found my daughter's damage. That is why her gastro said it was early stages. Thanks again. And good luck to you
  3. And that would show in the endoscopy? What if endoscopy comes back negative, then I for sure don't have celiac, right?
  4. Thank you for your response. I am new to the site, so just learning my way around. I just re-posted in the "testing, pre-diagnosis" forum. I appreciate your advice and help :)
  5. I was diagnosed with IBS when I was 12 years old. I am 37 now. I have what I call "IBS episodes" of diarrhea, SEVERE pain, sweating, chills when I eat certain foods. I can't pinpoint it to wheat alone. It doesn't happen all the time, but I suffer from these "episodes" at least 4-5 times a week. My 4-year-old was just diagnosed with Celiac. She was asymptomatic. She has a genetic disorder that we were about to start HGI in her. One of the tests they run before starting HGI is a celiac panel. Her numbers came back as a "weak positive." Had the endoscopy done. Showed early stages of celiac. Her gene test also came back as the highest, 31x, and he said she had the gene also. She has been gluten-free since January now. I got tested when we got her diagnosis. Mine tests were negative. I know he tested the Iga (I think that is what it was) to make sure I was producing enough for the test to be valid, something like that. I don't have the values. Now he wants to do a colonoscopy to check for other things, and says he wants to do an endoscopy also since I will be under anyway. Question is could I possibly have celiac if blood work was negative? Thank you for all your help and advice.
