I hate you're having such a hard time. I know it's frustrating when you feel that the medical community doesn't have a clue. I started with stomach problems when I was 12 or so and now I'm in my late 20's. I only found out that I have celiac disease about 2 months ago. :(

I know with all the medical bills things can get tight. The other day I figured out that we're actually saving a ton of money by not eating out. We're also eating healthier foods.

Health wise I'm still having a hard time right now. I tried to raid my cabinet for my acid reflux pills, but they we're out of date!! I'm so glad I read your post because they never really helped me but today my heartburn has been out of control!! :P

As darkangel mentioned a journal is very helpful. We did this with my dd diet and symptoms. We took the journal to all her specialist appt's and I think they were able to visualize how often the symptoms were occuring and how serious it was.

I hope you get to feeling better and find the answers you need. :)

Hi, again, Dancer :-)

Reading more about you here, I want to add 2 things:

You need to learn more about Gilbert's syndrome and all of the food-related problems -

Here is the link I found about that:


Since it's genetic, has your immediate family been tested for that, also?

If following those tips doesn't help you, I definitely think you should be tested for gluten and casein antibodies -
Investing in the Enterolab stool tests is something I would highly recommend in that case.

Best wishes,
