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.

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.
Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

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 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.
