Do You Ever Start To Think...

Recommended Posts

never, not with the stomach pain I get..I wish I could die its so bad

I don't think other celiacs get severe pain like i do, at least I don't see much talk about it

It was severe pain that finally made me search the internet to see what was wrong. Now I remember several other occasions over the years where I was in so much pain I just laid on the bathroom floor between spells with the potty. Sometimes I had diarrhea, sometimes couldn't pass gas to save my life! That was worse than anything else!!

One of my symptoms was horrible stomach cramps. Sometimes so bad I felt like I was locked up in pain, and that I might pass out. Were yours like that too?

Ah the pain. Maybe we talk about it less because we block it out?

Severe stabbing, wrenching, gut twisting, burning pain. Pain with cold sweats that have left me so incapaciatated I've spent days and nights lying in bed, there is always one strange position, usually on my side, that feels slightly better. Pain so bad I would lie there and cry, not sob, cause that would hurt to bad, but just leak tears for hours, and stare at the wall cause the pain was so bad I couldn't even concentrate on TV.

Pain so bad I would take drugs to make me sleep just so I didn't have to be awake.Fun bit is, if I eat an egg, I get the same thing.

Yeah, don't really miss that pain at all.

If celiac doesn't cause it, why is it gone?

thats it, thats exactly how I was for over 2 years!!!!! still have pain most days, but no where near as bad and the meds for slow gastric empting are helping that..Dr still wants me to eat a HIGH gluten diet for 4-6 weeks :o when I said I can't take the pain he rolled his eyes, and said you just don't seem to understand gluten and celiac disease will not do that and everyone else with the pain was misdiagnosed!!

I do wish there were more talks about the pain, even most celiac disease info leaves that part out!

Its so funny to read everyones story and realize it hits so close to home...I am 30 years old and have been sick since 7. All in our heads I dont think soooo...I am a very happy person overall I always see a better side to situations and I dont worry alot. Point behind that we know the first things Dr.s push is anxiety , depression and our favorite IBS. I never have yet met someone who gets as sick as I do.It just wasnt normal for a child to always be sick. It was always just a virus hmmmmm. Brother and sister never seemed to catch the virus.I always knew it was something more. I think when you ask yourself is it in my head, you should know right away its not. Its like intuision you just know. My final straw with Dr.s was the last G.I Dr. ;I had told him I was gluten free for a month and feeling great. He did all the necessay test. Guess what negative... That will happen when not eating wheat and gluten. ( Duh!) So and I qoute this Dr. "I think at this point you should see a phsychoanalysis Dr. "(huh).Its funny there were times when momma and daddy had to put me in check for almost throwing those funny little bed pans at the uninformed Dr.s that thought I was belimic or anorexic.Its funny that G.I. Dr. put on my diagnosis sheet anerexoria... HAHAHAAH Stupid! Stupid!

My boyfriend and best friend of 7 years has been at the bootom of this disease with me. I automatically asked him.... Babe are we at this point do you think its in my head. Automatic response.... NO lets get that second opionion now!

I am a true beleiver if it works stick to it! This wheat and gluten allergy has changed my life tramaticlly.Its nice to live a normal life. Good luck!

that this is all in your head? I had been eating gluten free/dairy free for a few months and felt sooo much better...then it started again so I got tested for corn and soy intolerance too. I felt a lot better after taking these foods out but then the test came back negative. I started this week eating only meat, fruit, and vegetables and finally feel good again. But...I miss all my favorite foods ;) I find myself constantly daydreaming about my favorite cookies and chips and then I tell myself that the blood test was negative so I can have these things again. Then I remember how much better I feel without them... :P

(Apparently I go crazy when deprived of cookies :D , I had been eating 3 or 4 boxes of enjoy life cookies in one sitting)

After years and years of problems I was dx in March. After at least 15 colonoscopy, numerous endoscopies, swallowing a camera. barium whatevers and so many CT scans I should glow, a blood test is what finally dx me. After years of getting sick and trying to figure out what was wrong it all makes sense. I get so aggravated when I think of all the wasted time. All the people who would just sigh and roll their eyes when I would say I'll be right back I need to use the restroom whenever we were out anywhere. It seems so petty but I would love to find my high school gym teacher who would give me such a hard time because, "Jenny you always have a stomach ache", I would ask to sit out so I wouldn't pass out and let her know I did have a stomach ache and a reason. (Gym after lunch) The dumb doctor who after removing my gallbladder told me"Eat what want, if make sick, no more eat." DUH. Thanks for letting me ramble. :blink:

    I have used Bio-K.  It is certified gluten-free and was recommended by my now retired doctor.  It can be found at my local health food store market.   https://www.biokplus.com/en_us/products  
    Hi all, Does anyone know of or wish to start a support group in Bergen County, NJ?  Or are there any members in Bergen Co who would just like to get together now and then and support each other in person?  
    I have also had hallucinations.  Not very many.  But decades ago, during my teenage years (horribly sick but had not been diagnosed with Celiac so I was actively eating gluten all day every day), I hallucinated once or twice.  I never told an...
