In Topic: Constipation?

I'm hoping that results will be Celiac's instead of IBD due to the constipation.
Outlook regarding medication is not as bleak, that's for sure!

Yes, chronic constipation and the issues that arise from such is what we're currently experiencing. Don't know from what yet.

Ravenwood...

If the bumps are as I described, which aren't blistered, can a biopsy even be done? Do they just scrape?

Thank you for your reply. It's a web I'm trying to untangle from... all the misinformation for almost 17 yrs. I'm so frustrated.
I can't say that hers turn purple. What's funny is, I get like... one bump occasionally that ends up turning purple... but I'm not the one being tested and it surely isn't enough to go in there.
I'm going to cling to the one time it was DH, though the ped back then said it was contact metal reaction. NO! It spread everywhere like chicken pox looked, but wasn't.

Again, thank you.

I'm so glad someone used the word "glass". This is similar to what my daughter has said in describing her pain, glass, or blades, but it isn't in swallowing, it's usually by the time it's trying to digest.

Type in keywords "The Celiac Brain". There is so much out there about Celiac and behavioral problems. It's what helped the nurse practitioner (in retrospect) to immediately look for Celiacs (mental health issue).
Gluten free is big in the Autism and ADHD circuits. Start typing in key words, and use learning disability (adhd is one) but if you apply the information from the celiac brain to what you're reading and then go by a list of each disorder + gluten in a search, you'll be AMAZED at what you find.
It's a neurotoxin for these poor kids.

I've got a 17 yr old who recognizes this in herself now too, and her mental health issues were pretty severe.
