Hi, my name is Eileen and I have really been sick since 3/17/12, all of a sudden I had this terrible sick feeling and I lost my appitite and I developed this bad taste in my mouth. I've been to a series of doctors, including my GI, and he has given me a scrip for a series of blood test to see if I do have celiac. It all started with the coffee, it started making me really sick. I thought maybe it was the 1% milk I was putting in my coffee, so I decided to switch to Soy milk, I was still feeling very sick, it was definently the coffee. This should be very interesting, I have gluetn free cereal in the morning, along with the Soy and I seem fine. Oh, if you only knew how sick I was, and all my bloodtest were coming up normal. I will post and let you know how it goes with the bloodtest, it takes 10 days for the results.

Let us know! Coffee is hard on your stomach. And I can sympathize with being so sick since I experienced the same thing. If the test comes back negative but you find a gluten free diet makes you feel better, I would stick with it!

I don't know what's making you ill, but keep a food diary. Document everything that gets past your mouth to include lotions and lipsticks/lip balms.

Gluten intolerance and dairy intolerance often go hand in hand until some healing can take place in the small intestines. Dairy can be successfully be reintroduced after a time out.

If your GI might recommend an endoscopy test to check out your small intestines, it's recommended that you continue to digest gluten. If that's not an option try to schedule your appointment asap.

Celiac can be triggered by many things like stress, mono, illness, pregnancy, surgery or any trama. Never heard about coffee ;) . Hopefully, you will know soon.

Hope you get your answers shortly. :)
