Karina, thanks a lot for the costochondritis tip. I have done some searching on the web about it and it's possible I may have it as well. It can be cured with ibuprofen, which, as I already know, does work for me. I was a bit woried I may have a pericarditis, but hopefully it's not the case.
Anyway, you bet it was hard to get rid of diary, I'm still craving my favourite stuff. But the numbers tell me a clear message, and unless my antibodies drop down, I'll stay diary free.

Gretchen, did you ask me? I am AGA both negative, tTg IgG positive, IgA negative, caseine IgA positive, IgG high positive. Hope this helps?

About the rib pain, and this isn't much related to GI, but if the pain you are experiencing is in the same spot all of the time and it seems to hurt for a long period of time, then stops... it could be a broken cartilage rib. That's what happened to me.. have 5-7 broken and they'd never show up on the x-ray because they're not bones. Some were just hairlines and some were complete breaks, but they'll never heal and when irritated, just get inflamed (especially when I ate too much) and hurt like a bad bruise for weeks. After about a decade of wondering why they were hurting, they thought I had costochondritis or a gallbladder problem (since they were on my right side)... so, if I ever hear of someone with rib aches I just mention this... just in case. :)

Gretchen, the pain moves and changes quite often. In addition, deep breathing doesn't increase the pain. I can't remember any event (like hit, fall etc.) which could cause this. So, I don't likely think it is a broken cartilage rib, but thanks anyway. It's interesting how many ideas can people come up with.

RE: Bilirubin levels

I am not a medical professional, but I must say this: If any of you have high bilirubin levels along with a deep pain back ache on right side immediately tell your doctor. The other symptom I'd be concerned about is diarrhea, but with a celiac that would be hard to determine if it was from the celiac or a pancreas problem. Sometimes the pancreas malfunctions and the symptoms are similiar to celiac. At this point, the GI should be doing an ultra sound or a more serious CT scan.

So please don't automatically assume your high blood test levels and/or symptoms are from celiac. My warning is due to a family member who's not celiac, having celiac symptoms, but diagnosed as having IBS and severe stress, who later was found to have a pancreas disease instead.

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
