#632788 More Testing On Tummy Problems

I don't beleive that she is going to bother with the biopsy...the family history is there and she told me to go ahead with the diet. I am overwhelmed by the hypoglycimia and the celiac but I have a really good book and you all to help me through this and an exremely understanding husband (most important).
Off to the post diagnosis section lol

So went to the Doctor the Celiac panel isn't back yet however she told me that in the mean time to go gluten free for at 3-6 months and see how that goes. She will call me when the panel comes back to let me know what it says but she told me the same thing that I have read here in so many posts the "False negatives are extremely common" I also was diagonased with hypoglycemia which if I don't watch it will turn into Diabetes within 5 years.... just one more thing to add to the list. My fathers side is riddled with it and the celiacs would come from my moms side (so I think mom & grandma have major tummy issues) However I talked to my dad and my cousin started with hypoglycemia then turned out he has celiacs....

So here is my coles notes story....
I have had bad tummy problems since I can remember but they got really bad at the age of 16. I was a late bloomer almost 15 when puberty hit. Originally I chalked it up to food (mostly meat intollerance) My mother and Grandmother have the same problem. Two years ago I had been getting really bad/sharp stomach pains about 15 mins after eating and it didn't matter what it was. Went to the Dr.'s whom then sent me for blood tests and a colonoscopy (for crohns & colitis) which didn't go well felt every minute of it finally told the Dr. to stop because the pain was unberrable (and I have had 3 kids 1 all natural). When the results had gotten to my GP they said they were inconclusive... hmm i wonder why??? Anyways I had about enough of being poke and prodded at so I stop testing. My friends's new gluten-free (a nurse & celiac) suggested that I go and get tested for Celiac. I went to a new Dr. (i have moved) explained to her the time length and a brief on symptoms and she ordered at wack load of tests pretty much everything on the paper and then some.

Symptoms are:
stomach cramping, diarreah, loss of appitiet, lactose intolorant, I have been anemic for who knows how long, odd menstration (I also have PCOS and a messed up petuitary gland), monster headaches.
I have been paying more attention as of late to what i am eating since there seems to be no consistancy on what causes my stomach discomfort.

I hope that these test will find something or lead to something that may be bothering me so far though if it is something i would prefer celiac to crohns or colitis as it is WAY easier to treat!! Going for my blood tests tomorrow should find out soon....I hope
