Well, it's been over 2 months that I have gone gluten-free and I have no complains with the diet - I can't believe how crappy I used to eat so I'm happy I eat more fruits, veggies and hardly any processed garbage anymore. I know I have accidentally glutened myself a few times because my stomach problems start up again and normally last for 2 days - usually happens at work when I can't turn down a cookie or I put the wrong salad dressing on my lunch.
Although I feel much better, I'm still losing weight (down to 94 lbs now) and one thing didn't go away - I have burning/pressure in my upper stomach and sometimes as the day goes by it can get worse. Only thing that makes me feel better is to drink a New Planet Beer or a hard cider - bubbly, which will make me burp. But it comes back and sometimes I have a problem at night going to bed with that pressure.
I went to see the Gastro today to talk to her about and she scheduled the endo for next Friday. She pressed on my stomach and down my my intestines it didn't hurt like it used to but my upper stomach sort of hurt when she pressed on it - not stabbing pain, but pressure. I am to gluten up again until next Friday (not looking forward to that but I'll do what I gotta do). She is going to check for H-Pylori - what is that? And she wants to check for ulcers/hernia? Plus I'll get a biopsy done for the celiac.
I just hope I get somewhere with all this. Anyone ever have H-Pylori or an ulcer?
