01/09 went to emergency room for severe bloating and cramping in stomach
02/09 follow-up with above to go over symptoms of diarrhea, bloating, upset stomach, and cramps. Lots of blood work was done and scheduled Colonoscopy and Endoscopy
03/09 Both Colon and Endo were done, and blood back, no lactose, no celiac, no signs of UC or Chrons. Only mild colitis in Colon and GERD.
04/09 problems get worse even on Lialda and Aciphex. I demanded more blood be done to rule out Chrons and UC and scheduled CT Scan.
05/09 CT Scan only showed diverticulosis. Blood triggers negative for UC and Chrons
07/09 After months of being frustrated went back to new specialist who told me I could have SIBO. And he thinks regardless of biopsies I could have Celiac because my mom does and everything seems to fit as far as symptoms and history.
08/09 Hydrogen breath test normal. Very little spiking no concern.
09/09 Voluntarily went Gluten free to try to self Diagnosis.
10/09 feel much better as far as stomach pain, but continue to have the big D at bowel movement time. and every morning after coffee and breakfast I get stomach issues and feel as if I can go to bathroom at any moment. My morning ritual includes milk! I am now thinking I was never checked properly for lactose intolerance?
03/10 Told I was Lactose intolerant, Sent to Lahey Clinic to see specialist. Entire Blood Panel was positive for Celiac for first time. I had Endoscopy and await Biopsys results.
