Ya know...I may get in trouble here for this but that is one of the rudest comments that I have ever read on here. Glad that you don't have celiac but the rest of us here do. I am currently glutened and feeling like crap so nice way to rub it in.....good going!!

You know, Mo....I sort of thought that at first, too.

But then I thought....We always want to know what the results are with the people we help on here....maybe he/she just thought we would like to know that. And, who among us wouldn't like to not have Celiac?

Of course, Celiac is a definitive answer for why someone feels ill. Now this poor person has no idea why he is having the issues he has. Maybe he is NCGI? Maybe he has a parasitic infection? Maybe cancer? Maybe Chrohn's? Worse things than Celiac.

So to Razzle51 - I'm sorry that the doctors have not found out what is causing your medical issues. I hope they continue to search for the problem and find a good solution for you and you return to good health soon.

Congratulations! :) I hope you figure out soon, and consider non-celiac gluten sensitivity if you continue to have problems.

I'm not sure what to say exactly. There is nothing quite like being deathly ill and having all the tests say you are in perfect health. What tests did they do precisely?

I am delighted for you. Be sure to hang around and ask questions if you think gluten-free might help. I have a diagnosis of NCGI and feel way better on a gluten-free diet. I hope you get to the bottom of things.

Good luck

Yeah, I was actually happy to be diagnosed with Celiac because I at least knew what the problem was FINALLY after 10+ years of suffering and could get on the track of feeling better. Sorry you don't have the answer yet.

well, I was going to say pretty much what Karen said, so I'll just say

"what karen said"

and since I went most of my life not knowing why I felt so bad, had horrible symptoms progress in the last 10 years and pretty much was ready to die, I am one of the few people who said :

"I have Celiac! Hot damn! whoohoo!"

because I knew I had an answer and I could get well.

And, I have to add this cautionary note: sometimes, despite the negative testing results, if it walks like a duck and acts like a duck.....

(my celiac blood panel was negative and that set me up for 2 more years of living hell)

It may not be celiac, but the gluten intolerance spectrum is pretty wide.

That is sort of why I asked what tests were done. Sometimes a duck is a duck is a duck. I don't care if the tests tell you a duck isn't a duck, if a duck is staring you in the eyes, it doesn't matter what a piece of paper says. You would be a moron to say, hey, that ain't no duck!

ETA: Also, once I got my head out of my ever too ample backside, I was thrilled to have an answer. I was thrilled to not have to be on a half dozen drugs with 4 dozen side effects worse than how sick I already was. All I had to do was stop eating gluten. Simple. (Bwahahaha!)

I was relieved to find I had celiac. I liked having an explanation for 30 years of fatigue and a way out. Yeah, I would have been glad if I didn't have to follow the diet, but I would be back to square one of what to do next. I just hope that you Razzle51 will find the keys to your health struggle and be able to do something about it.

I think I was more scared of getting a negative/borderline diagnosis because theres nothing worse than not knowing for sure, especially with all these false negatives people get which I keep reading about. At least with a dx of celiac or if you've worked out you're a NCGI then you've got something you can deal with.

I'm still new to all this but hope you find out whats causing your symptoms Razzle...may even be worth going gluten free for a while to see if things improve or try an elimination diet (I'm sure you"ll find loads of info on here on how to go about it).

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
