Two years ago I started having stomach problems, bloating, gas, but not the diarrhea I had as an infant. In additon to to stomach problems I started breaking out in a rash all over my body. Never thought of it as celiac related. Was referred to an allergist who put me on Zyrtec. That controlled the rash, but I was always hungry. I attributed it to the medication and kept trying to wean myself. I could be off for about 3 - 3 1/2 weeks and the rash would be back. Burning, itching... Went back to the allergist after a year. Saw someone new and mentioned that I had celiac as a child, but didn't know if it was a correct diagnosis bucause I did eat wheat products. After a blood test came back 10X higher than normal, I was referred to a gastrenterologist and diagnosed by endoscopy at stage 3 this March.
Has anyone ever heard of celiac going away?
