Small Intestine Tumors Being Tested For Celiac / Gluten Intol.

30 December 2012 - 10:28 PM

Hi... I'm new here. I have suffered with stomach problems since I could remember. Recently, these symtpoms have become debilitating, bring me to the ER. At the ER, they thought I had gallbladder problems, but the ultrasound came out clear. I was referred to a gasto and had and endoscopy done. I was found to have a large mass in my small intestive (my doctor called it giant). Thankfully, the tumors are benign, but I still have to have them removed which will take 2-4 procedures of it being burned out by laser. The doctor also remarked that I need to go to a specialist because of problems in my stomach and esophagus. I know that I also have a hiatal hernia and gastritis. I have had unexplained anemia since I was a teenager. The symptoms that recently brought me in are: stomach pain, nausea and vomitting and extreme fatigue!! I feel like all I want to do is sleep.

Anyway... after my diagnoses. My doctor has tested me for celiac and gluten intolerance ... I should be getting the results this week. I am wondering if anyone else here has had any of my problems especially the tumors?

Thanks!
