In Topic: Has Anyone Else's Young Child Only Had Chronic Stomach Ache?

Yup, my son was strictly belly aches for two years, until it progressed to panic attacks, anxiety and major depression, pre-diabetes, anemia and b12 deficiency. Diagnosis took so long because drs were only looking for the "classical" symptoms. Blood tests aren't the most reliable in toddlers...push for an endoscopy and biopsy if his pain continues much longer.

Those are all negative. But they didn't do the DGP or the EMA, which are more accurate. Very common to have one test positive and others negative.

In Topic: Lindt Lindor Chocolate And Barley Malt Ugh!

Been there, done that! Lindy used to be my favorite. Personally, I have less of a reaction to Barley, you may get lucky!

Forgot to say, hold onto your gallbladder a bit longer. Celiac can cause the gallbladder to malfunction. I had mine out after the HIDA scan said it was only functioning at 10%. However, this "attack" happened two days after a bad glutening. When they removed the gallbladder it was pink and healthy, showed mild inflammation was all. (at which point, why the heck didn't they leave it alone I wonder?!) Anyway, there may be other things that are messing with the gallbladder, and I discovered life without one just starts a road to a whole new set of problems worse than the original.

Agreed, not enough samples, but all you are likely to get. Do the blood tests, INSIST on a full panel, then try gluten-free for awhile. (however this means eliminating all trace amounts, which you can find info on here about) Tiny exposure can still cause you trouble. The bumps on your arms are generally a reaction to dairy- dermatologists even refer to them as "milk bumps." If gluten free doesn't help you, dairy may be the culprit.
