So after many many months of not feeling well, questioning everything i eat, even sometimes avoiding food all together. It occured to me that every doctor that I saw was placing the blame on celiac disease, which is quite a pet peeve of mine. so finally when i was at my gynocologist i put my food down. turns out i have endometriosis, which can be the cause of many stomach symptoms, the shooting and constant pain, and the occasional attack of captain D (ha as many people call it)...i was to the point where i didn't know what to do anymore, thank goodness i got an aswer!! i'm having surgery the 13th and then trying the strictly organic diet and keeping my fingers crossed that it helps and i can get back to feeling normal.....it pays to question things.........i just wish everytime i didn't feel well people wouldn't say "oh well what did you eat this time"........Nothing actually THANKS! ha

Good for you for demanding answers. Isn't funny how we know our own bodies? I kept telling my doctor that my terrible back aches felt like my insides were inflamed. He said that it could not be related to my intestinal problems (pre Dx) and they were two unrelated issues.

After going gluten free, guess what......no more back aches!!

Hope you do well with the surgery and it relieves all you pain. :):)

I think you bring up a good point that celiac disease is not the source of all our ailments! I think when you have something like this, you tend to think "oh, it must be something I ate", especially when celiac disease symptoms are so vague and affect so many body systems. Glad you have been able to figure out what is getting you down and best of luck with your treatment! Hope you feel better soon.

I'm glad you stuck to your guns and got the correct diagnosis. Gyno. problems often affect our gastrointestinal systems. I have fibroids and during a hystrocopy, it was discovered I also had polyps (which were removed at that time). I always had noticeable PMS symptoms and during that time I would get D and even mild nausea. Best of luck with the surgery :)

I had surgery for endometriosis about 10 years ago or so, and I think it may be starting to come back...

you are right that gluten is not always the source of all of our problems. good luck with the surgery, you will do just fine and hopefully you will get feeling better soon.

Glad to see you got some answers, and a doctor that actually believed you when something was wrong. (we all know too often they dont, or give you the "I dont know"). Hope you feel better soon.
