My symptoms showed up out of the blue after my second daughter was born (at age 34). I never had a single issue (digestive or otherwise) until I began feeling a dull, tight ache right between my ribs. I was diagnosed with celiac three months later.

Wow, I have problems with that too! That's why I went to the doctor in the first place wondering if I had gall bladder issues. A friend of mine had her gall bladder removed and that was one of her tell-tale symptoms (supposedly). I went in for that and really bad stomach problems, we tested and NOPE. wasn't gall bladder issues.

You might have been told this before, but pregnancy is one of those suspected triggers for people who already have the celiac gene.

I am wondering if menopause is also a trigger.... another life event representing significant hormonal shifts. Any women "of a certain age" care to comment? (Or supportive partners of the same...)

My doctor has told me I may have celiac disease (amoung a lot of other things). I occassionally have allergic reactions, but I don't know what to, Constant diarhea and constipation, constant headaches (I have a dull one now which becomes severe every evening lasting weeks), hair loss, abdominal pain, etc. I just tell everyone that I occassionally feel like I am in an Alien movie and an alien is going to burst out of my stomach.

Anyway, my husband doesn't believe that it could be Celiac disease because it is hereditary and I have just been getting these symptoms in the last couple years, and progressively worse the last few months. He says "if it's hereditary, why are you just getting it now?"

Is there a reason it may just "suddenly pop up"?

Alright, here is a complete list o my symptoms:

I have been gluten free for the last two and a half weeks, and I am still getting symptoms; although they are a little less painful. I do not think it is early enough to really tell if the diet is working, just because for the last year that I have had stomach problems I have had times which I felt so good I could run marathons, and this could last for weeks until suddenly WHAM! I was throwing up, having stomach cramps, headaches and fatigue.

So, I have a quick question.

How long do people normally have to go without gluten before the symptoms go away? Do they ever go away? Will I ever feel like I can do 150 sit-ups ever again?

Also, am I wasting my time in cutting it anyway? My doctor insists that I probably have ulcers. (I am about to try someone else)

These are my symptoms:

These happen all the time:

Headaches
