Topics I've Started

Gross Questions...new Symptom

28 February 2013 - 08:39 AM

Ok guys,this post is a little graphic. Many of you know I have been having gut problems for quite some time. You can look back in my history to see my symptoms. I have to admit, I am currently Euthyroid and I do feel quite a bit better, but I still have this constant abnormal feeling and my GI Issues are still there. Recently I started having huge greyish colored bowel movements accompanied with incomplete evacuation. The movements smell terrible almost like a vomit/sulphur smell, so does my gas. The movements themselves are somewhat formed and somewhat not. They are litteraly that big they clog the toliet. They are also extremely messy. They are large even if I don't eat much. I rarely get full blown D just what I describe above most of the time 7 days a week. I have had 2 celiac panels, both of which were negative beside one showing a slightly elevated IgG at 11 which was 2 points above normal. All my bloodwork is fine (ie. liver panel, kidney panel) I had a colonoscopy and that was fine as well except for one polyp. Any idea what the hell can be cause these bowel troubles.

Quick Question On Chest Pain, Heart Beat

07 January 2013 - 07:26 AM

Ok guys I have been on and off with this gluten thing for a while. I have hypothyroid that can't seem to ever be properly regulated. Been at it for two years (currently on 4 grains of armour). My bowels have been jacked up since my late teens/early twenties (now 28). Recently I started developing chest pains and shortness of breath. Had a halter and EKG which came back good, going for a stess test tommorow. Chest pain seems to be brought on when I eat certain things, I really can't pinpoint it right to gluten. Yesterday I felt good, then last night I ate some chinese food and that was it, I litterally thought I was going to have a heart attack. Laid in bed all night with a rapid heart beat, palps, chest pain, anxiety. I have had the celiac panel (no biopsy), colonoscopy, ANA titer all normal. I do have low vitamin d. Never had iron or anything checked. B12 was in mid range. Not sure what else to think. Any thoughts?

Should I Get Some Other Tests

20 August 2012 - 08:49 AM

Ok thyroid labs are completely normal. I don't have my most recent available but I know they were right were they had to be. Testosterone was way low. Going to discuss with doc next week. I'm still having odd issues though.

Bowel Troubles are stills pretty constant
I get burning and nausea in the gut
dizziness (almost to the point that it makes me feel like falling over)
fatigue (which I put up to the Low T)
I'm not losing weight but I'm also not gaining (thank god)

I also have low vitamin d. I've been taking 5000 IU every night.

Any suggestions as to what else could be going on here.

I had a colonoscopy, no crohns or uc. Had the celiac blood test done, came back negative with I think the Gluten Giladian IgG or IgA (i forget which ones) be Tentative at 11 which was the slightest elevated.

Liver Panel was fine, nothing showed up on my Abdominal and Pelvic Ultrasound.

Any suggestions as to any other testing or could it be stress. I'm not really worried these days as much as annoyed as I want to feel better.

Celiac Panel Or Profile And Celiac Comprehensive

14 March 2012 - 05:52 AM

Doc ordered my a Celiac Panel so I went to the hospital today to get my testing done. When I got there the ladies drawing my blood seemed to confused as to run the Celiac Profile Test or The Celiac Comprehensive. They called the doctor in the hospital and he told them the celiac profile test is the same thing as the celiac panel and told them not to run the comprehensive. So what exactly is the comprehensive?

Well I have been talking to a few of you for a while about some of my issues. Just got back from my Ultrasound and HIDA scan. Galbladder is only functioning at 17%. So I guess that could explain some of my issues. Still going to get the celiac panel done, since I tend to get boils and fatigue and am still constipated.
