Seizures as a child
Anemic since birth
intestinal bleeds until I had my gastric bypass
severe stomach pains
told I had IBS
told I had fibromyalgia
red blotchy face
Get sick very easy
I had both my gall bladder and appendix removed because of severe stomach pains. I have had an intestinal blockage and a gastric bypass also.
i was tested today for celiac disease by my request and will be going to Duke Hospital in NC on Thursday to see a Hematologist because of the anemia.
In your opinion does this sound like it could be celiac disease to you??

Good luck with your tests!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I just ate a bagel and 5 minutes after I ate I was in the bathroom. Since I started to pay attention to what I eat, I notice that this happens a lot after I eat foods that are high in gluten.
Should have my blood results back tomorrow or Friday.

Just an FYI...only 30 percent of people with celiac get a positive test. Dr. Peter Green states this in CELIAC DISEASE A HIDDEN EPIDEMIC. Granted the book is twenty years old but I don't think things have changed much. People thought that Celiac disease was a rare disease but I think it's just rarely diagnosed. I recently went to a dinner and three people sitting at my table alone all had Celiac disease. What are the odds of that? I believe it's really gotten to epidemic proprotions but I guess that's another subject altogether.
FYI, The Op hasn't been on this forum in 3 years
