Hello,  I am having medical problems which my internal medicine dr.  doesn't seem to have any solutions.  I have been taking Prilosec for at least 13 years.  I was diagnosed with Celiac's 7 years ago. (Through a biopsy).  I have not followed a gluten free diet.  I was sharing a house with my husband, who would not go gluten free, he is now in a nursing home so it is just me in the house. The symptoms I am having are daily diahhera and if I eat or not I get sick to my stomach and sometimes will vomit. I basically have an upset stomach all of the time.  In the past couple of months I have been light headed when I walk even a few feet.  (I have to put my head down and breath until it passes. ) I am having trouble breathing also when this happens.  Also from my bottom of my ribs up to my arms and neck and head and ears I get pain which spreads up until I either sit or pass out.  Also during these episodes I get a hot/cold sensation in my ears.  It is making anything nearly impossible.  When I first starting to have just the breathing issues my dr. sent me for a stress test, it came back normal.  In the last month, I wrote to my dr. with my new symptoms and he told me to go to the e.r.  I had a chest x-ray and a ct of my lungs. Those were ok also.  The only thing they found is that I was anemic.  I have been taking Iron since, but I am getting worse if not the same.  I have an appointment on June 10th with my regular dr.  Unless they get a cancellation.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone out there?  I suffer from OCD, Depression and anxiety.  Which I have been dealing with since childhood.  So I do not think it is from anxiety from the shut down.  Also I had a covid-19 test at the e.r. and that came back negative.

Thanks for any help or advise anyone has for me.

Welcome to the forum :)

Celiac disease can kill if you don't go gluten-free.  It is a slow killer but persistent.  I encourage you to switch to a gluten-free diet and stick with it 100%.  The gluten-free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
