I did not know all of this stuff was food related until I fasted for 5 days and never felt better in my life! I still could not get well even on celiac diet as my immune system was so messed up. I now cannot eat anything that is artificial-colors, flavors, preservatives, etc. My white cells attack my joints when I've eaten something bad and of course when we have so many things wrong all the docs think we are crazy, mine did too. I was ready for suicide and had all those barium tests that showed nothing wrong. Elizabeth that is on the show The View found she was celiac when she was first on the TV show The Survivor and had to fast for 3 days. Everyone else was weak and she felt wonderful. It is not that hard to fast and I would start there. Shingles is an immune problem too.
Hi all! I posted here about a year ago when i started experiencing many symptoms that seemed to be similar to that of celiac disease. I have had many tests including blood tests for celiacs and they have all came back negative. I had an endoscopy though not through to the small intestine and colonoscopy which showed nothing. I was experiencing a great amount of tingling down the backs of my legs and an MRI scan of the spine, neck and brain revealed no problems at all.
Over this period i lost over 2 stone in weight (UK) and felt extremely ran down all of the time- constant tiredness. Another symptom was extreme pain in my bones and joins.... down my wrists and arms and in my legs. when this first started i constantly had D everytimje i went to the toilet for about a month before stools then became watery and quite a lot of the time now float in the toilet (sorry about the detial). I have also experienced shingles and recently keep gettin pain around my chest area and breastbone and back area (Im 20 year old male).
Over this period of extensive tests the only positive tests i have had was a white cell scan of my stomach area which revealed an area of potential inflamation in the small intestine and this was followed up with a barium follow thorugh which was clear. I keep asking my doctor about the possibiliy of celiac and she said that because the blood tests are clear it is not a possibility although she has just referred me to a small bowel specialist.
Sorry to go on for so long, but i really can't take feeling like this much more. I keep having periods of feeling well then suddenly rubbish again and again. My family and doctors think i have gone mad and keep being tod i have chronic fatigue and IBS. Anyone got an opinions on my issue ( any help would be well appreciated)
