Hi, I just wanted to thank u all for all ur help so far. After my severe episode earlier this week I saw my Dr who is very concerned so now whatever happens I at least have a Dr who wants to find the answer. Waiting for my coeliac panel to come back. TERRIFIED it comes back negative & I won't be allowed to be diagnosed as coeliac. It matters in UK as I can't get prescriptions for it :(
Oh well, I'll let u know.

Even without prescriptions, you can eat gluten free. Just get naturally gluten free whole foods. No prescription needed for beans, rice, veggies, fruit, and meats.

Regardless if the tests come back negative, it is best to go ahead and go gluten-free for 3 or 4 months. The tests are not 100% accurate/reliable, so a negative is not 100% reliable. Then there are also some people who never test positive but have severe symptoms. Tests are not as good a gauge of if you should be gluten-free as how your body reacts to gluten.
