Celiac Disease And Migraines

14 May 2009 - 01:06 PM

Hi, I am a mother of a celiac son and I always test negative for celiac although I know I carry the gene as my father has it as well as my son. I recently was tested due to almost daily stomach pain and now constipation. I have always been more on the constipated side but now need to take laxatives frequently to help (my son's symptoms have always been constipation). Within the past year I started getting optical migraines (the eye part of the migraine without the head ache). Now it is so frequent that I am having eye trouble everyday and even more recently I am getting the head ache with it. I went to my GP who said they were optical migraines and suggested due to the stomach problems to go gluten free even though I test negative (which I have not done yet, not sure what I am waiting for). I read up on migraines and celiac and it seems like some study show a link. Has anyone ever heard of this or looked into it?

Maybe Not Dairy Intolerant After All

20 April 2009 - 02:34 AM

My son is 8 and was diagnosed with Celiac at age 4. The GI we were using never told me to go off dairy and we couldn't understand why his symptoms continued. Two years ago we got a second opinion and during a colonoscopy this doctor noticed white bumps in my sons colon which he said signified a food reaction. He said to try taking him off dairy and he showed great improvement. Now it is two years later and we are noticing that he can now handle small amounts of dairy with no trouble. Even the occassional ice cream shows no reaction. So here is my question. This would make sense to me if he had been newly diagnosed as a celiac and couldn't handle milk in the beginning but he was already gluten free for 2 years when I took him off dairy. Is it possible that he still wasn't healed enough at that point to handle dairy? And is it possible to all of sudden now be able to have dairy again?
