Sorry I'm still learning how to use this. I never saw if my message took. I have tested positive for celiac, one of my counts was 56 & a normal count is 30. The other two tests were ok. I still wonder if I actually have this. I don't throw up after eating gluten or run to the bathroom. I anything it is the reverse effect. My systoms are pain in my upper right side. I guess I was just seeing if anyone else that has celiac has had these systoms. I also wonder about what you can and can't eat. I have a million questions. unsure.gif unsure.gif I would appreciate any help. Thanks, Lucy

Hello

I know how confused one gets with this...Did you have your gallbladder checked out? I too did not have typical symptons usually the opposite... I do know that I have been dx"d with all kinds of illness' but when I stopped eating wheat & gluten I became much better. Not perfect but better.I was told I did not have Celiac's and to continue to eat anyway I cared too..I decided that I felt better off of the wheat & gluten. When I seen another Doc he agreed I should not to a wheat eater , he then proceeded to tell me how bad it is for us and that his family has no problems with eating it but they said it is bad stuff and none of his family eats it.He said they are much better off without it. 'I know this isn't much of an answe but do you feel any better being off of it? Some people never have ant outward symptons and to me that's the scary part...

If your blood tests came back positive and you are having abdominal pain and any gastro sysmptoms, you can probably assume you have it. You need to be 100% off gluten - not even a crumb. I have had all kinds of symptoms, most of them not what the older doctors call "classic."

As far as I know, celiac does not cause vomiting. Not everyone gets diarrhea from it, probably half of us get constipation. Pain in your upper right side about half an hour after eating could be gallbladder problems. Since your tests came back positive, you will be healthier eating glutenfree all of the time, not just when you experience symptoms.

I had pain in my upper right side, and all the way down my right side. It was a burning, aching pain that gradually got worse and worse. Doctors also suspected gall bladder, appendix, etc. But when they did the endoscopy, it came back looking like celiac.

And today, if I have a speck of gluten, the area on my right is where it will ache for a few hours.

Celiac is one of those diseases that does not have one simple diagnostic test. It may be difficult to diagnose (sort of like multiple sclerosis, etc.) But if the symptoms fit, and the blood tests fit, and the endosocopy fits, then wear it.

Hope this helps

I definitely have vomiting with Celiac's. Actually, the first sign to me that I've gotten glutened is extreme nausea and then vomiting. Yuck!

Celiac can cause vomiting, especially in children.

Celiac can also cause constipation, even though most complain of the "D".
