Could I Have Celiac Disease?

13 February 2013 - 03:11 PM

Hello. I am a 26 year old female who has been experiencing some GI issues for a couple if years. Up until recently my symptoms were mild and not concerning. In 2010 I had my gallbladder removed. After surgery I began noticing that my bowels had changed. I could no longer eat fried foods, sauces, processed meats, etc without having diarrhea. Since then I can't remember the last time that I had a "normal" BM. Anyhow around Christmas of last year I developed new and alarming symptoms. I experienced diarrhea for 2 weeks straight. No I did not have the stomach by or anything else GI related. During these two weeks I would experience severe aBD pain, sweats, nausea and burping. Just this week the pain was soooo bad I had to leave my 4 year old who had a 103+ fever and my other 2 children with their grandmother at 2a to go to the ER. Along with the above symptoms I also experienced dizziness and felt like I was going to pass out, my heart was racing and I felt so weak. Diarrhea was also accompanied. I also have another symptom not related to GI but over the summer my right hand became really dry ( almost like dermatitis). My right hand is still the same and drs do not believe it to be dermatitis. They have suggested it could be diet related- milk allergy or gluten allergy. I am going to the dr on Friday for a ER follow up and just wanted opinions of others. Thanks.
