How does celiac begin?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

How did your symptoms come on if you developed the symptoms later in life? Was it gradual? Did everything just hit you at once? What was the timeline like for you? Did the symptoms get increasingly worse with almost every major exposure? Were symptoms brought on by emotional stress or PTSD? My symptoms got worse after I was diagnosed with PTSD and also after a night of having 3 beers. I had never been in more pain in my life, and I have never been the same since that night. Is it possible that those 3 beers alone caused such severe damage by themselves?

I think you will find that each person with celiac disease has a different story and varied symptoms.  There are over 200 symptoms attributed to celiac disease (these often overlap with other illnesses].  You could have many of these symptoms, a few or NONE.  It is why there are celiac antibodies blood tests and usually a diagnosis is confirmed by a biopsy.  

The most current  research for the trigger for celiac disease is now being attributed to a virus.  So, three beers would most likely NOT be a cause of celiac disease.  

This is how celiac disease is tested:

I hope  you feel better soon!

I realize everyone is different. I was just wondering how it happened for other people. I am getting tested on Tuesday. I just read somewhere that a severe glutening could make it worse. I have so many symptoms I could write a book on them lol. Thanks!
