Topics I've Started

And Now We Wait!

08 February 2013 - 12:35 PM

I went on a gluten diet for three months and then underwent both a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. I have an appointment to see my gastro on the fifth of March (seems like a long time for a follow up!). The initial paperwork he gave me said "r/o early barrett's" and I was too drowsy to ask what that meant. Does that mean I have early barrett's or it is suspected? Also, I apparently have internal hemmeroids(sp?). Are these symptoms of celiac? Or am I looking at something completely different? I really only suspected celiac because my sister has it. Was I on the wrong track?

Thanks for your help, everyone!

Confused And Frustrated

18 October 2012 - 05:27 PM

I tried gluten free ( sister is a celiac) and was not seeing as much of a difference as I thought... So I tried not eating meat in addition to gluten free (meat makes my mom sick).... Still no difference! Started taking probiotics and saw an extreme difference... For three weeks and then back to my dogestive problems. I don't know what to do.

Feeling Terrible

09 September 2012 - 06:21 AM

So I had my blood work done... came back negative but I was only eating gluten for a couple of weeks so no surprise there. I went back to gluten free anyway. My doc wants to do an endoscopy despite my results but I just started a new job and can't risk being sick at work... although this time on the gluten free diet I'm not finding any relief. I'm taking lactaids with and dairy products because I know I might have temporary lactose intolerance but even that doesn't seem to be helping. My major symptom is just really strange and inconsistent bm. Sometimes they are pale, always piecy, often times there is a long piece of what looks like onion skin or clear lettuce... sorry, I know this is gross. Its just loose all the time and I'm always straining. The worst part is I have interstitial cystitis and whenever I am constipatd it really exacerbates my bladder symptoms. I started taking my medication for ic out of the capsules because I didn't know if the capsules were safe.

I really wanna stay strong until January and if nothing improves go to my doctor again. At least by then my job went be so new.

I just need some advice on things I could be doing to help this process. Should I take fiber supplements and if so which ones are safe? Unfortuanely (or maybe fortunately) I can't tell when I have been "glutened" very easy because my symptoms are so constant...

Any advice would be appreciated!

How Long Does It Take?

01 September 2012 - 10:27 PM

I know it is different for everyone but I kind of wanted to know how long it took people to have more energy and feel less fatigue after going gluten free? I just got a negative bloodwork back but I was only eating gluten for ten days... My doctor wants to do an endoscopy but I just started a new job and I need to be healthy. I need energy!!!

A Poop Question

20 August 2012 - 07:20 AM

Sorry for asking another question! I feel like I'm blowing up this board, but I'm just trying to reassure myself and understand this whole process... What does pale stool mean? I noticed mine are a light brown when I et gluten but during the month that I was gluten free my stool was much more solid and way darker... Now my stools are kind of loose and don't look fully digested.
