15 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm just wondering if somebody could help me because i'm worried a lot.

I learnt about my celiac disease when i was young i was 2 years old that time when the doctor discovered my celiac disease none of my family members got a celiac disease i'm the only one who used to have it.i had been on diet for 16 years and then the doctor did for me an endoscopy and then told me to start having food with gluten slowly , it was such a good day for me and i thought i got over it for ever , gained weight and start looking better 4 years after stopping the gluten free diet and just recently started having lots of symptoms i had about 5 months stomach ulcer with diarrhoea , stomach gurgling , abdominal pain and i had to go back to gluten free diet again because i thought it was it back again , went to see my GP and the doctor did for me a blood test , everything was fine the test was negative which it means it's not a celiac disease , then referred to hospital and said it was a sign of infection , did an ultrasound and everything looked normal , he said everything was fine got better when i started gluten free food , and got over the pain ,he told me to start eating normally i did so and started eating food with gluten and 1 month later started having some haemorrhoids , went to see him again , gave me some medication and referred to a clinic and the doctor there said he would look at my bowel , i forgot to mention to that specialist that i used to be celiac so he told me , so i'll see him next week , couple of week after having the haemorrhoids started having panic attacks , anxiety and depression the doctor put me on SSRI tried both of citalopram and mirtazapine but didn't work for me , after being 5 weeks on mirtazapine started having a yellow diarrhoea which is a sign of an infection and could be a sign of celiac disease and then started having abdominal pain , stomach kept gurgling and making too much noise even people could hear it , muscles pain , feel so tired , lost 5 Kg , legs tingling (i don't know if it's something to do with anxiety and panic attacks), back pain ,feel so sad keep crying for no reason for hours , sometimes feel sick and dizzy but i haven't vomited , i feel bloated and keep having an excessive wind that smells , i started the gluten free diet again 2 days ago please help what should i do.

You do not get rid of it. Of course your endoscopy came back clear, you stopped eating the stuff that caused the damage. That is the point, When you eat gluten, it causes your body to attack itself and damages your intestines. When you stop, you technically should heal.

I don't blame you at all, but I think the Dr. is a problem.

The celiac never "went away". You just stopped exacerbating it. Stick with the gluten-free diet. That is likely the problem.

Good luck! Maybe look into finding a new doctor? Who knows the basics of celiac disease?

I am so sorry you are having such a hard time. The doctor that told you that you outgrow celiac was flat out wrong. Once we are diagnosed we are celiac for life. It sometimes takes a while for symptoms to reappear but for you they now have. Sorry but you need to get back on the diet no matter what your test results are. I hope you are feeling better soon.

What country do you live in?

Celiac disease is a lifelong condition. You don't "get over it". Your doctor was woefully uninformed and has done you a great disservice.

It used to be thought Celiac was a temporary childhood disease, but they've known for years that it isn't.

You need to be gluten free for the rest of your life. It is probable that gluten is responsible for all of your new health problems. People don't always have immediate reactions to gluten upon reintroduction - it can take days, weeks, years, but eventually it happens.

In young people there has been a "honeymoon" phase documented in some Celiac teens/young adults on gluten when symptoms disappear but then resurface in the 20's. That sounds very similar to what you describe.

By eating gluten you are increasing your chance of other autoimmune diseases and some cancers.

Get off the gluten and heal.

who has experienced anxiety because of his celiac disease and could the celiac disease cause anxiety and panic attacks?

Do you think that the blood test is the best way to find out about the celiac disease because i've done it before and it was negative , i believe that my celiac disease will never go away, but none of my family members has a celiac disease i'm the only one but i would say both of my mother and aunt have thyroid disease.

I had been on gluten free diet for 16 years (2-18 yrs old), the doctors found out about it after doing an endoscopy ,it's been 4 years now with gluten , i feel like i'm going mad , having severe panic attacks , anxiety my stomach keep churning all the day i have a bad feelings in my tommy + the symptoms i mentioned before(excessive wind , bloating , abdominal pain, change in bowel, stomach ulcer , feeling tired , tingling , palpitations, feeling so sad and down and keep crying for hours with no reason , back pain ,stomach gurgling)

Yes, anxiety and panic attacks can be caused by gluten intolerance.

You have celiac disease. It does not go away. It does not matter that no one else in the family has it (or knows that they have it) You do and you have to stop eating gluten immediately. No need for further blood tests. It probably just took a long time to cause enough damage after you had been gluten free for so long. Go back to being gluten free and get a new (better informed) doctor.

Hello,

I've just seen my GP today and all the blood tests i've done were normal (no anemia , no thyroid problem , no kidneys problem , no liver problem) , but i still have the symptoms of ibs or celiac disease (i was on gluten free diet for 16 yrs) as i said yesterday :

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/92704-is-it-my-celiac-disease-back-again/page__p__794304#entry794304

the doctor told me that it's almost impossible to have a celiac disease at the age of 2 years old , so i challenged her by bringing my medical record , i told her my celiac disease was found by doing an endoscopy ,i'm sure few people know that panic attacks and anxiety are signs of celiac disease , i had no glutenn for 5 days and started feeling better please check the link to see the symptoms i'm having.

how accurate is the blood test for celiac disease , could it be negative even if you have the celiac .

I merged this post over here because it's just a continuation of this discussion. This will keep everything together and save the confusion of 2 separate threads.

Carry on! :)

Read around on the forum. There is lots of info. Allso, Read and copy some of this info for your doctor. The docotor might take the info seriously if it comes from other doctors.

You know why i'm worried a lot because i lost 5 KG in 6 months , i have ibs symptoms and i'm suffering for anxiety and keep having severe and frequent panic attacks for her it's a mental health problem , i tried SSRI but didn't work for me , i know i had lots of problems in the past and it could be the reason but the question is why i didn't get any better since i started having the stomach ulcer and ibs symptoms in december 2011.

And if i take a copy of this she would be upset , she would ignore it , i don't know better than her , she is the doctor but i do believe that i know about celiac more than her , i'll give the medical record and she will have a look , i felt like she didn't believe me , she thinks i have never had a celiac disease and she said it's less likely for someone to develop a celiac disease at the age of 2

If I read your first post correctly you went backbon the gluten-free diet and tested negative for Celiac through blood work? That makes sense because the antibodies they test for depend on you eating gluten. No gluten, no antibodies, no positive test. On top of that, some people with celiac disease test negative, regardless. Do you know what blood tests were run? There are several tests, most doctors don't run them all and that's another reason for a negative. And when they scoped you you'd been gluten-free for 16 years??? Of course there wasn't damage!!!'

You also stated you just went gluten-free two days ago. It takes months to years to heal Celiac damage. You must stay on the diet.

Screw your doctor. She's uninformed unless she can give you another reason for your problems - a VALID reason for your problems, she's worthless to you. Find another medical professional and tell them about your Celiac.

From trying to put all your information together, it seems obvious to me you have celiac disease, you are well when you do not eat gluten, you are sick when you do, it gives you anxiety and panic attacks, you have gastric problems, you have tingling and palpitations, and yet you still listen to this doctor who tells you you do not have celiac. :blink:

Quit the gluten and feel better is all I have to offer.

Celiac Disease is not "curable" ---but it is TREATABLE with a gluten free diet.

It's not "back again"--you never "lost it". You put your symptoms into remission on a gluten free diet.

You put gluten back in, you start the autoimmune response again.

It's in ALL THE MEDICAL TEXTBOOKS and JOURNALS--- which she obviously has never read. :rolleyes:

Listen to what we are telling you. This "doctor" has her head up her arse.

WE know more about this disease than she does obviously. You don't have "IBS" ---you have CELIAC.

Get a new doctor and stop eating gluten right now. If you have Celiac, honey--it's for LIFE.

best wishes.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
