I live as if I have celiac's even though I don't have a formal diagnosis. I had only the one blood test which was negative and I had an endoscopy but they only took 2 samples. But all of my symptoms, including a rash which looked just like DH, cleared up when I went gluten-free and then dairy-free so I do believe it is actually celiacs. Unfortunately my daughter is now having problems and I am worried it might be celiacs but the dr won't even look at that as a possibility bc he says I don't have it. When I told him about her symptoms he just said that it is functional abdominal pain, without doing any sort of assessment. We are going back again on September 10 and I am going to insist that he try and figure out what is going on. She is 7.5 yrs old and for the last 4 month she's been getting increasingly more frequent stomach aches, some diarrhea, she says she is regurgitating in her mouth, she is more fatigued, cranky, just feeling blah. This kid LOVES school and she keeps missing school due to her stomach aches. This summer she even had to miss some days of camp and she was so upset. The dr was trying to tell us that she must be anxious about school or something but I know that's not true. Plus it has been getting progressively worse, even over the summer. What can I do to at least get the dr to try and help my daughter in some way? Maybe it isn't celiacs, maybe it's lactose intolerance or something completely different, but I just want some help for her.
