So Maybe I Am Gi Or Celiac? Maybe I'm Not....

I'm also seeing an allergist next week, that should be interesting. As a side note, 3 years ago I did an environmental allergy test and reacted to every allergen, in fact the doctor didn't believe it and retested me on another arm and again reacted to everything.

Did your previous allergy test 3 years ago include foods, too?
Diagnosed with wheat hates me 4/13

do remember that celiac is NOT an allergy!
I saw an allergist and he did a skin prick test, and I came back negative for all foods, including gluten and dairy.

Yes my previous allergy test actually did have food allergens, and according to that test I was allergic to everything.
I'm going in for my intestinal biopsy (as well as esophagus) on tuesday. Personally, I'm just really exhausted... hoping to find whatever is causing all of this.

Did you feel better when you were gluten free for two months?
I felt so much better. I guess for me the biggest improvement was my lack of migraines. Before cuting out gluten, I used to get 2-3 a week and that had been the case for 12 years. Sometimes they'd span several days. Now I only get 2-3 a month. HUGE change for me. Plus I don't have constant stomach cramps and pains anymore. I won't lie though after 2 months I was still strugging with what I could actually eat so my meals were kind of the same thing over and over.
Caffine free since 2008
Pescetarian since 2009
Diagnosed as gluten intolerant Oct 2011, have been gluten free ever since

Had my biopsy today. The dr. said there wasn't much in the way of physical evidence to indicate an issue, although he said there was a fair bit of damage at the bottom of my esophogus from acid. They did a biopsy and the results of those should be available in 2-3 weeks.
