Bartful: i dont have a diagnosis because i went "gluten free" or gluten light or whatever before being tested.

 

I know how to avoid CC, ive read a lot about it, i just need to understand i must not eat the stuff my family touched with probably gluten hands and avoid eating out, im working on it, im doing the best i can, i live with 4 gluten eaters who dont believe i have gluten issues and dont respect me, i think now they're starting to understand but it took like 1 year for them to understand i need to avoid gluten, i dont totally blame them for my cheatings, it was my fault as well, because i wasnt sure i had a gluten intolerance so i needed to feel bad to understand or i dont know what i thought in those moments, but my family helped a lot, because they didnt buy anything gluten-free, not even oils (here there are some oils with gluten in them)

 

I got really desperated because i had not had this diarrhea episodes for a long time and im not even sure if gluten caused it at all, the thing is im really gluten free now, if i only had D it would seem more normal, but i really see lots of blood!

 

I'll ask my doctor for another colonoscopy and an endoscopy next month, im sure i'll hav those done in january or so because things are that slow here! but i'll stay gluten free now, it doesnt matter if the endoscopy doesnt show any celiac damage, then i give up on the testing, i dont know what else i can do!! im sure i have celiac or gluten sensitivity, i dont know if i have anything else, thats why i'll have to get more testing done..

Hi cristina, thanks for the advice!

 

Are hemorroids or fistulas always visible? even when i feel good? because the colonoscopy was done when i was feeling "normal" without diarrhea and without any blood loss, and it all was normal, not even a little hemorroid, nothing!! 

 

These diarrhea episodes always start slow, the first days loose stools with no bleeding or just little, then normal D and after some days i get that terrible bleeding.. (sorry TMI) 

 

This is confusing, i really hope i dont have crohns disease!!

Thank you for the advice, i just thought charcoal could help, as i heard some relatives used to take those pills when they had D, but it didnt work for me so i'll take imodium, i hope it helps!

 

Tthe problem is that im not even sure if i got glutened or what. Today my brother prepared juice with those powdered juice mixes, he used one which contained gluten (ohhhh!!), he was too rough and the powdered thing spreaded, i breathed a lot of it, i could even guess it was an apple juice mix.

 

I know it may sound obsessive, weird but i feel worse now!! i even got worse D, it seems i have very bad luck. I'm afraid i may have some other disease like ulcerative colitis, i had a colonoscopy last year and it was all ok!! i'll set an appt with a gastro tomorrow, i just want to know whats wrong with me!! im sure gluten is part of a problem because i cant even have a piece of cake without having symptoms, ive made many attempts to go back to eating "normal" and it was impossible.

 

I just cant understad why i get D on a strict gluten-free diet and i felt good on a non strict diet, and if i really got glutened, then i cant understand why the D doesnt stop!! 

 

Im just scared that all of my symptoms will return and the gluten-free diet wont help me anymore, thats why im so worried!!

Ive been thinking on food intolerances, i dont eat bananas because i get bloated within some minutes, the same with coffee, im  now lactose free to se if it helps! it may be a virus, ive already set an appointment with a new gastro, maybe i should have a new colonoscopy done, i dont know.

 

How long is it normal to have diarrhea after a glutening? do you  take any meds to stop the diarrhea? im going to buy imodium, i read it helps a lot! charcoal doesnt seem to be doing anything
