I think Im reading that a lot of you have migranes as symptoms.... Am I right?
My mom has celiac. I have celiac. My 19 yr old daughter has horrible stomach problems. The Dr told her to just go on the diet, as he is sure she has it also.
My question is my 27 yr old daughter...has always gotten horrible migranes.......Drs say they seem to be hormonol........ she has no stomach problems. But do yall think she should be tested also?????????Could gluten be causing these?

If you have Celiac and your mom has celiac disease, then your daughter should be tested even if she had no symptoms at all......if she also has migrianes, definitely.

I agree with celiac3270. Your daughter should be tested regardless of symptoms (or the lack of them).

I had digestive problems off and on during my childhood, which pretty much went a way in my teens, and came back worse after I had children in my mid-twenties. The consistent symptoms were migraine type headaches and joint pain. I still get both symptoms, but not as often and usually not as bad.

God bless,

I posted earlier in one of the forums here about not being sure if I was born with celiac disease or if it developed later on.

I can say for sure that I have had headaches some very severe for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of terrible headaches. I can remember being in 2nd grade. The neighbor kid was facinated with being a fireman (which he went on to become). He thought that everyone should share his passion for being a fireman.

I can remember thinking and even saying, "I am afraid the firehouse bell would give me a headache, and this would make it hard for me to fight the fire." Well, of course, the adults just brushed me aside. They didn't believe that I could be having headaches the way I claimed to be having them. They said I was too young to have headaches.

Over the years, I was sent home from school several times vomiting with headaches. I have missed days of work with headaches, and have somewhat of a headache as I sit here and browse this forum.

My chiropractor says that the vertebra 1,2 & 3 are malformed, probably due to a serious fall as an infant that caused them to develop improperly. Well, I understand that I did have a serious fall at 6 mos. old. So, this being the case, and having hereditary pancreas problems, gave me a headache DOUBLE WHAMMY. So, I won't press my luck! :)
