New Member, Results Tomorrow

6 posts in this topic

Tomorrow I go to the doctor. I'm real worried that it'll turn out that my tests are negative. I know that may sound strange, but Celiac explains everything, all my syptoms for all these years.

It's rather depressing to look at the list of syptoms, know I have so many of them and then just *know* that the test results are not going to confirm my thoughts. How do I know? Well, the dorctors here always call if you have bad test results. I've had no call and it's been two months. I tried a gluten challenge. All my syptoms went away, only to return when I ate something with gluten.

*sigh*

Thanks for listening. This site is wonderful. I wouldn't have had a clue what gluten was if not for this place.

I understand how hard it is to be waiting for test results. I had the tests done last week and I'm probably call tomorrow if I don't hear anything. My dd was tested months ago and I've put so much into her diganosis and recovery, I put my own health on the back bunner. Now that we can see a difference with her, I'm trying to examine my own health as well.

Hopefully you'll get the answers you need tomorrow.

Just something to think about...depending on your diagnosis. I went gluten-free for a while with my dd and then I also got sick when I started eating it again. I've almost come to understand that regardless of my results, my body doesn't tolerate gluten. :)

Take Care

Fingers crossed for you. I know exactly what you mean. It seems so silly to pray that you've got a disease, but when it seems to explain everything.... I just found out about celiac disease a week ago and I feel the same way. I've got an appt to talk to a doctor in early Oct. It seems like forever to wait.

Let us know how things go.

Well, I just got back from the doctor's office and, as I suspected, the test(s) were negative. However, the doctor wants me to be wheat/gluten free and try an elimination diet, while monitored by a dietician.

So, I guess it's kind of a wishy-washy diagnosis. He thinks I'm intolerant or sensitive, posibly to gluten, possibly just wheat.

At least I have this place to help me sort out what I can and can't have while I figure things out.

It's hard to know what to say.... I'm glad they don't think you have it because who wants someone else to have a disease. But I'm disappointed for you that you didn't get a definite diagnosis. Then, I'm glad your doctor is recommending a gluten free diet and help from a dietician, so you can know if it really is gluten that is causing your problems.

I hope you feel better soon.

The dietary challenge is a valid diagnostic test, and I'm glad for you that you got a doctor who is willing to use it.

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
