Possible Celiac?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out what is wrong with me and my son and I suspect we are celiac. My symptoms are. On a regular diet where I eat just like everyone else does, (not dieting) after lunch I get extreme abdominal pain. Pain that doesnt go away with passing gas or going #2. I try to walk it off but the only way I can get it to go away is by lieing down till it goes away and it will continue until I do that. Its wierd because it happens right after lunch everytime I stop dieting and watching what I eat and its not fair! Seriously, I dont want to diet for the rest of my life eating apples etc! Even if I eat those microwave smart ones I get the seizing of my intestines attack. I know that I have to pretty much stay away from vegetables. I cant eat brocolli, gum with fake sweetener....etc because those start me on the cycle of pain. I had a partial bowel obstruction and I was soo miserable it was horrible and It all starts when I start eating like a normal person would. The abdominal pain and immediate seizing of my intestines and bloating are my symptoms oh and CONSTANT gas and not just regular kind, the kind that will clear a room and thats embarrasing!!! I dont seem to have any others except that i have dark circles under my eyes..and still have acne and Im 28! My mom says they I have always been a sick kid (person) that I was always complaining about my stomach when I was little just like my son is doing now and I looked like an allergy kid just like him so that

Welcome to the Board!

Celiac has over 200 symptom and you and your son seem to have many of them.

There is a specific blood panel for Celiac which consist of five tests. It is also important to remain on gluten until your testing is over. Any other testing, other than an endoscopy exam will not diagnose Celiac.

There is a great deal of information on Celiac here.

I just realized the exzema we get is a symptom also.n I get it on my hands....I dont have it now but it comes and goes.

Thank you for your reply. I just wanted that affirmation that I was not crazy, or a hypochondriac. If anyone else has symptoms like mine I would love to hear your stories. Being able to identify with others really relieves some stress until that doctors appointment comes.
