Topics I've Started

Feeling Worse

19 February 2010 - 08:24 PM

So I've been gluten free now for a little over 3 weeks and I'm really sick, in fact I am worse than before. Every day I have nausea (generally in the morning), pain in my stomach area, and diarrhea. I also get these sharp pain behind my right eye every few days/ I've been really careful and mostly eating at home. The doctor did say that I also have reflux which is caused by a small valve or something but i'm been taking medication to help it. I also tried switching my stomach medication and that still didn't help. I don't understand how I'm worse, i've never been this sick before, before the symptons were every now and then not every day. I've tried paying attention to what I eat because I am eating more rice, corn and soy but it seemed to happen regardless of what I eat.

Confused- Biopsy Result Normal?

07 February 2010 - 07:45 PM

My blood result showed that I had as my specialist explained 'impressively high' coeliac antibodies (IGA)- 200 u/ml, and also tested postive to IGA. The specialist said given my levels it would be pretty unlikely that the biopsy wouldn't be positive for coeliac disease. Although he did say that given my age (29) that my intestine is likely to not be very damaged. In between seeing my doctor and my specialist I went gluten free as recommended by my doctor, but that was less than a week and then I continued to eat gluten for a few more weeks until the biopsy, but the biopsy shows a normal intestine.

I'm confused! Since the biopsy I started eating gluten free and have been feeling a lot better, also I accidentally ate some gluten at a restaurant and noticed the difference straight away: bloating etc. Does this mean that I am not celiac? I've got another 3 weeks before I see my specialist.

Feel Worse Before Feel Better?

I've started to phase out gluten from my diet, but I actually feel worse than I usually do. My symptoms are nausea, upset stomach and vomiting. Has anyone else had this problem? How long before I should feel better?
