Endoscopy - Affect On Symptoms
0

10 posts in this topic

How have peoples symptoms been affected by endoscopy and biopsy?  Do they worsen for a few days from the procedure itself?  I'm trying to figure out what is going on, and I don't remember ever reading about this.

I've heard many poeple feel worse because of the gluten they ate prior to the test but I haven't heard of the test making them feel worse... I never had the endoscopy so I'm not exactly knowledgable about this... Hope you find answers and feel better soon.

My son had very negative behavioral/emotional reactions for a month+ after his endoscopy.

Funny enough, he mostly stopped complaining of stomach upset, c, d, etc.

But the behavior was definite. Even his teacher noticed.

We think it was a reaction to the anasthesia. He was a little "shocky" post procedure. The chills, chattering. Not unusual or unheard of-but a slight reaction.

When I had my endoscopy and biopsy, my symptoms stayed the same, no changes until I went gluten free. Are you feeling worse?

Thank you for replies.  This was a follow up endoscopy while already gluten free, but suffering minor symptoms from slight gluten contamination.  I think that I just wasn't being patient enough with improvement upon finding a safer diet.  Things seem to be going better now.

I felt reeeeeeally wiped out and kinda like I had a low grade fever for a day or two after, but I don't remember much else being wrong.

I don't think I was any different. I started gluten-free right after it so I can't really judge.

I have several friends, probably not Celiac, whose " stomach" issues got better after and endo/ colo combo. Probably the good clean- out.

I felt pretty wasted after my double 'scopes last week (endo- and colono-).... my guts were all squirrelly too. It's a week later today and I'm fine now. I think the pre-colonoscopy flush-out might have been a good thing for my SIBO.

I think the endoscopy caused some flare up for about a week here too.

 

The pediatrician thought that likely.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.

      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
