Please Help...so Tired Of Pain

Recommended Posts

I have had abdominal pain in the lower left quadrant for about 6 years, since I gave birth to my son. The pain is pretty much constant, but gets more unbearable after I eat. I will be constipated for about a week or so, and then have diahrea for a few days. I had a laparoscopy done in august of last year, and they removed adhesions from my pelvis to my liver, but that did not help the pain at all. I am always tired, and there are always keytones or keyotes, or whatever they are called in my urine...my blood tests have all shown a high white blood cell count, but I have been to doctor after doctor, and specialist after specialist, and none of them have any idea...recently a friend mention celiac disease to me...do any of the symptoms sound like that is what it could be?

Hi, and welcome to this forum. I think more people will respond who have similar symptoms. The alternating constipation and diarrhea is pretty common for celiac.

In all your tests have they done a celiac panel? Also it does not sound like they did a biopsy of the small intestine. These would be the standard tests for celiac.

However, many people here had negative tests, but found a strict gluten free diet did help tremendously.

This is a wonderful supportive place to ask questions and find answers.


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels
