I've had digestive troubles all my life - diarrhea three to four times a week, stomach bloating, and within the last six months, daily diarrhea and extreme pain before bowel movements. Two weeks ago, I finally decided enough was enough, and I stopped eating gluten to see if that was the problem.
Great news - I feel a lot better, and I'm only having diarrhea every other day or so.
Bad news - I just found this forum today, and now I realize that I probably should have stayed on gluten until I could be tested. I called my PCP today, and they can see me in three days for testing.
Would it help to go back on gluten right away for the three days, or should I just see what happens at the blood test, and if it doesn't work, do a gluten challenge?
