Celiac Disease does not make one immuno-compromised. It's just the opposite. We have an overactive immune system.
To the OP....if your doctor thinks you may be gluten intolerant, are you following the gluten-free diet also? Will that be something you stay with? I am happy you found a solution to your symptoms and hope you feel better and stay that way soon!
Thanks for the clarification: Celiac is auto-immune but not immune-compromising, good to know. I hate to spread misinformation by using the wrong terms.
I have been following a gluten-free diet for a couple weeks now, and my "movements" and facial flushing have been better than they've been in years.
I have no clue whether I definitely have a gluten allergy/intolerance, but I plan to stick with the diet because I feel better on it.
I may have something else going on too, but the doctors haven't pin-pointed anything. I really sympathize with the doctors because diagnoses are so hard with multiple things going on.
Plus I realized I am terrible at describing my symptoms. I had two different kinds of pain in my abdomen, neither of which were paricularly sharp, but I could describe them no better than "cramping" and "related to breathing" (both way too vague).
