Celiac symptoms and a&e?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been diagnosed celiac for 18 months now, and whenever I've eaten gluten in the past accidently my warning signs are headache, feeling sick and faint. 

 

But for a while now I haven't accidentally ate any gluten. 

 

This past month I've been having the following symptoms : lower abdominal pain, bloating and swelling, lower back pain, irregular bleeding, feeling full after eating a tiny portion and feeling sick. 

 

Most at of these signs are of ovarian cancer, so I went into a&e and the doctor said that it's just my celiac disease. Is this right?

Your doctor could be right.  It could just be celiac disease.  Have you had follow-up testing?  This should be done six months and then every year to see if your antibodies are coming down (or are down).  This will tell you if you really have been avoiding gluten.  No sense guessing.  Get tested and at least rule it out!  Here are some links that back what I have told you:

I've not had any follow up testing, but I do however have bloods monthly and they have come back fine. But if they do specific blood tests checking for antibodies then I could request those. Thank you for the links.
