Hi I have a strange question. My 5 yr old DD is going through testing for celiac disease Pedi DR says test results were positive sent to GI dr he "wants to rule everything else out first" very frustrating!! But here is my question. 2 times since Christmas my daughter has had a day where she can not get out of bed her head & tummy hurt so bad. no fever just bad headache and tummy it last for almost a whole day then she is fine. I brought her to the Pedi this past friday when ot happened again she checked her over and said Flu I say no way she was better by that night and fine the next day just like it happened on Christmas eve. Has anyone ever had this happen?

Yes this has happened to my 8 year old daughter too. The last time it happened was after being gluten-free for a couple of months, she cheated while at school. Well the next morning she was out of school, she woke up with nausea, diarrhea, pale, headache and a fever.

I wonder if the test results for Celiac were positive why would a doctor want to rule everything else out? It seems very obvious to me.

I hate to see or hear of little ones suffering and I hope she feels better soon!

This used to happen to me all the time when I was younger. The doctors said there was nothing wrong with me. When I was in grade 6 I had to stay home for 2 weeks with a migraine so bad that I was convulsing. They had no idea why! Your doctor is not too bright, he has diagnosis of Celiac yet he wants to test for other things?!?! Not worth it too me.

Called my GI dr yesterday he claims the the test my pedi Dr ran was not a reliable test so he's running some that are more reliable. I told him that this is crazy my DD has just about every text book symptom & a few extras she is in constant pain then to start having days where she can't function is horrible the poor kid is 5 and wants to know why the dr's can't make her belly stop hurting. The dr started to mention IBS and I said NO! Even though i hate to see my DD has to do it I want a biopsy done. so we are still waiting on his blood tests (been over 2wks now) and he is scheduling a ultrasound & bioposy. He also wants me to put her on Prilosec which irritates me because we have tried zantac & tagament before and they did not do anything I feel like he's bringing us backwards instead of forward. Sorry for my ranting I am just very irritated with him. Thus child has been sick since birth and has been through so much I just want her to get better. thank you for listening

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........

      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
