Gluten Problem

Recommended Posts

First I am new to this board and been reading a little bit. My spelling isn't all that great but that's okay.

I have always eaten bread and gluten items and no problem at all. About 4-5 years ago I would get this really odd pain in my stomach (not lower int but my stomach) and it would kill me. It didn't happen very often until about two years ago. I would get this horrible stomach pain (it was like someone was stabbing my stomach and felt a tightness from my throat and down) I went to the ED told me to take a pain killer and I'll be okay. The pain was so bad I could not sleep. I had gas (and I have been a gassy person all my life) and everytime I had to pass gas it felt better for a little while.

Okay I'll make it short it happend again went to my doctor and I told him that it happen when I eat bread items. He gave me Nexuim which I guess it helped but it gave me ismonia and BM problems. NOTE:I hate taking pills everyday unless it is a vitiam.

My stomach hurts so bad I have called in work and could not eat anything at all. It doesn't happen all the time either it just when it wants to. Now I can not eat a bagel at all or cereal at all because it gives me instance stomach problems (SP).

the other day I went and had a sandwich and I knew with in the first 3 bites I would have SP and sure enough I did. This time I notice I was really gassy and then the next day I had BM problems.

Could this be a gluten problem? I am going to the GI in a couple of weeks b/c I am tired of it. If I can take something out of my diet that's fine.

It sure sounds like you have a problem with gluten. Unfortunately, if you have stopped eating it, and your GI orders testing for celiac disease, you will be guaranteed false negative results, even if you have celiac disease.

You have two options: Eat gluten foods again until you see the GI and be sick, or stop eating them, but not bother getting tested.

You can still get tested by Enterolab while on a gluten-free diet (it will be accurate for about a year after going gluten-free). But they can't officially diagnose celiac disease (because they don't do biopsies, which are unfortunately still considered the gold standard for a celiac disease diagnosis), just gluten intolerance. Which is fine, because the treatment is exactly the same, which is a gluten-free diet.

Trying the diet is still the best and most accurate test of them all. If you get sick eating gluten, but feel better without it, you should obviously not eat it. It's as simple as that.

Thank-you I ate a little bit of pita bread last night and I was gassy. I am slowly going to try and elimate gluten foods. One good thing I'll just tell my husband I have to go on the diet "on doctors orders" (even if the DR says yes or no) :lol: . I am still unsure about the test and I am not convienced that it is 100% accurate.

I am happy I have found this board it is very informational. I learned yesterday about nighshade veggies which was very cool.

I love food

I really do not want to do this. It hurts so much sometimes I cry and I don't cry over pain.
