Good afternoon. About one and a half years ago I was diagnosed with esophageal ulcers following a traumatic earthquake in Japan. Nearly three or four months ago, I began to have intense pain in either my rectum or colon which then sends strange pains down my left leg. That was happening about once a week and would last several hours. Recently, however, this pain has become more frequent with some added sharp pains in my lower back and upper buttocks.
Seven or eight of my family members have been diagnosed with celiac disease and I wonder if anyone could tell me whether they have had similar symptoms. Additionally I am now nearly always severely weak. My age is 32 and I am male. Can anyone help? Thank you.

There is a high amount cf celiac in your family so the odds of you having it also are fairly good. The thing to do is get tested and see what it shows. If the tests are negative then go ahead and try the gluten-free diet for 2 or 3 months and see if it helps.; Some people do have NCGI which has the same symptoms as celiac but no tests to show it. Nueropathy (nerve pain/damage) is a symptom of celiac so that part could fit.
