I have had irregular movements since As long as I can remember. Stressful situations caused loose stool and any other time they would be stuck. I did not realize how screwed up they were until I went gluten free when I was 17. I went gluten free for 3 months and it was the most regular I had ever been.
Also my dad has had bowel issues forever an they just said he has IBS and when he drink beer with wheat he has an allergic reaction (gets itchy and bloated).
I have been blood tested for celiacs once when I was 17 and first noticed the correlation, however I was gluten free at the time and they came back normal. I am also borderline anemic 0.1 point away from being considered anemic and have been since I was 8.
I have plans to see a naturopathic doctor after my colonoscopy and hope to get the Cyrex testing done to see if maybe it is some gluten or wheat antibody they aren't testing for at the GI doctor. I also really like the taste of gluten so I dont want to stay gluten free forever unless I know for sure it is what is causing it and not a reaction to something else that gets cut out while cutting out gluten. I dont eat cheese or milk either, im not allergic I just dont like what it does to me.
So my question is if anyone has any ideas what could be causing these symptoms or if anyone has had similar ones. If so what did you do to figure it out? Im really tired of feeling like s$#& and not having any of the doctors believe me. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
