Try Ensure Plus once or twice a day! It has worked incredibly well for me

RMay,

I know what you mean by feeling like there is a knot in your intestines! Before I was diagnosed I almost always felt discomfort in my intestines like that. I also had constipation as well as a first symptom. I had a lot of pressure and pain my upper abdomen.

All those symptoms are gone now that I am gluten free.

I know I can't say whether you have Celiac or not, but I just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone in those symptoms!

Have you considered getting the blood test despite what your doc says? If you do want to get the blood test, don't go gluten free until you get it because it can mess with the results

Good luck with your health and I hope you get to feeling better! Digestive issues can be so frustrating. Hang in there!

Ah, never thought of food coloring. I have rarely eaten foods with food coloring since I switched to gluten free so maybe that's it! I'll definitely not try them again. Thanks guys!

In Topic: Diagnosed With Ibs But Think Its More Specific

My very first celiac symptom was chronic constipation. For months that was my only symptom- no pain, just never being able to go! I know it's the worst feeling and I'm sorry you've been dealing with it for so long :(

I hope if you talk with your doctor he will be willing to do a blood test. I know the IBS diagnosis can be an annoying one to get. But DON'T cut out gluten products until you get testing because you need to be eating gluten for the tests to be accurate.

I can't give any insight to the itching and sneezing, but maybe someone else on the forum can.

Good luck and I hope you start feeling better!
