Think I May Have Celiac Sensitivity, Diagnosed Diverticulosis

26 November 2012 - 12:18 PM

I am new to this site and decided to join because you all are so helpful to each other. Let me tell my story, since 2007 I have been dealing with intestinal issues and allergies. I have Kaiser and I would go in complaining about swelling after I eat, heaches, join pain, nausea, vomitting, chronic fatigue, depression, being cold all the time, unable to concentrate and hives. I was told several times that I have constipation and to take fiber and should be ok. For my depression I was given Prozac and have been taking ever since. I was told to go to bed earlier should help with the fatigue, but no matter how much I sleep I am still tired all day every day. They have always made me feel like I was going crazy or like I was a hypochondriac. I would do everything they tell me but my symptoms would not leave and in fact they have gotten worse as the years past. Some days the bloating is so bad that all I can do is cry from the pain an pressure. All of these symptoms would show up between 5-10 mins after eating.

My PCP ran thyroid test, full blood work up and the only thing that came back low was always Vit D and Vit B12. So they would keep telling me that I am fine.

In 2009 I started having server hive all over my body after eating, I had allergy test done and found out that I am allergic to: Chicken, shirmp, salmon, garlic, sweet potato, green beans and mushrooms. So I have removed all of those from my diet and still have the above symptoms without any relief.

In March 2012 I had my PCP order blood work for Celiac she ordered Transglutaminase IGA and Gliadin IGA and they came back NEGATIVE. So I requested to have an appointment with a GI since I started seeing blood in my stool. So the GI did an Upper Endoscopy and Colonoscopy on November 21 and found that I have Diverticulosis of the Colon and Internal hemorrhoids. I am nervous about the results because for so long my doctors would tell me that there was nothing wrong. Everything I looked up about diverticulosis did not have the symptoms that I have. I think I may be Celiac Sensitive but scared to see what my results come back with. Any advice.
