How Long Will This Last
0

4 posts in this topic

It started with the dizzy spells, then the pain under my right rib with diarrhea that continues still. I have lost 4 pounds in 4 days, not a huge amount but still not good. Now I have leg cramps. I always have perrier water at work but yesterday it was gone so I did not drink enough (I swear there were 4 bottles there). I called my gp and have an appointment this morning. If I did not already have an ultrasound and CT scan I would have sworn I was having a gallbladder attack. I realized that I had eaten my pizza with nonGF sauce over a period of two days I guess slowly poisoning myself. I am eating baked chicken, rice, etc but I have to function at work so very little food during the day I don't want to move into the bathroom again. I hope this will go away soon!

I hope you feel better soon. I might suggest not worrying about living in the bathroom for a few days, as pushing it through your system faster may help reduce how long you're not feeling well?

Hi, Janine,

I hope you feel better. Did you get a complete check-up of your whole digestive system? It sounds like your gallbladder might be giving you problems? I just had the surgery last week, and I was sick as a dog prior to that for 2 months. Maybe you should have it checked out. It might not be an adjustment to the new diet, that could be causing you problems. Again, I hope you feel better. :)

I don't now what else they can do. I have had an ultrasound, ct scan, small bowel follow through, endoscopy, colonoscopy plus blood work. It did feel like a gallbadder attack though.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
