Yoiks. sounds a bit scary. Any constipation, hemorrhoid possibility? The mucous is perfectly normal. Is the blood bright red (more likely hemorrhoidal) or dark?

No constipation or hemorrhoid's to speak of, not really regular but still going. I've seen the mucous before but never streaked with blood so it kinda freaked me out. It is bright red though. With the holidays this week I have not been very careful about my eating (still eating gluten free but have eaten gluten free stuff I normally avoid and also have eaten gluten free cookies prepared by my sister in law...typically don't even eat Gluten-Free that others have prepared) so it definitely comes at a time when my diet is not what it should be. I've just never thought this to be a typical celiac symptom, am I wrong?

I did eat some ghirrardelli (spelling?) chocolate chips which I know are supposed to be gluten free but do say "may contain dairy". I have an issue with dairy that is quite possibly an allergy, could a dairy allergy cause this? I know my daughter had blood and mucous from dairy as a baby but not sure if this happens in adults too, it seems pretty common with babies who have food issues.

About.com states that blood along with the mucous can be caused by Crohn's or ulcerative colitis, but I think I would more likely put it down to holiday eating. If it persists much longer get to your doctor and talk to him about it.

Thanks for all your help! Yeah, that's pretty much what I've read too but I would think if it were Crohn's or UC it wouldn't respond quickly to dietary change so I'll wait it out for a few days...getting back to normal eating as of today so we'll see how it goes. I'm guessing it goes away in a couple days :) Thank you!

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
