Hi all, Just want to know if I am over reacting. These are my symptoms.

around every two weeks I get:

Bloating

Nausea

Sometimes I vomit, not all the time

My stomach is sore to the touch like someone has punched it

in a couple of days my bowel will be sore too

It hurts when I eat I get stomach cramps almost instantly as soon as I eat and then I feel nauseous until that food is digested. Last time it took all night and half a day.

I feel better when I have liquid foods.

when I start to feel better thats when I start to feel tired this lasts a couple of days.

I have lost a little weight about two pounds a month for four months but this might be more cos Im not eating for a couple of days every two weeks

My poops seem normal

Sometimes I get flu like symptoms, sometimes not

Then the symptoms slowly get better and after 2-5 days I feel almost 100 percent again for a week and a half and then It starts again.

The other thing is is that I have a chronic sore throat that is always there in the morning when I wake up. It is down the bottom of my throat sometimes on the left sometimes the right which seems to get better by the middle of the day only to come back the next morning. I keep expecting to get a cold or something but it never comes. Could all of this be linked to celiac?

I have had blood taken early on when I first got symptoms which was negative. I have a child 16 months that is gluten sensitive and have celiac on my dads side with most of the family showing symptoms to varing degrees. I also had some interesting symptoms as a child. Thanks

It defintily sounds like it to me. I havent been diagnosed yet either, but I was going through a cycle like that for a long time, for years.. it was like Id get better and then it would start all over again and I would purposly avoid eating sometimes b/c I didnt know what to do... My throat has always been slightly soar, everytime I go to the dentist he asks me if I have a cold b/c my throat is red and tonsels are slightly larger than normal, I"ve been that way my whole life. The soarness you are having farther down sounds like the result of acid relux....even if you dont feel like you have it, you may be having it in your sleep and not knowing it....but vomiting doesnt help either, I've also been there....I would feel so naicous I'd have to make myself throw up, otherwise it would just sit in my stomach and bounce between there and half way up my chest----not very comforting....

I agree. If that's the case, perhaps you should see an ENT....especially if the gluten free diet doesn't make it better. Untreated reflux can lead to bad things :(

Thanks for your replies guys, I also get lower back pain where I thought my kidneys were but now I'm assuming its called flank pain sometimes left or right sometimes both, does anyone else get this?. I had my tonsils out about eight years ago cos I was complaining of sore throat and flu like symptoms too often and they took them out. Maybe there was a different cause?
