Hi,

i have been suffering with digestive problems for a number of years now and i am starting to wonder if i am celiac! I get heartburn, stomach pain, bloating, flatulance all the time, burping a lot, sometimes constipated for days other days i have the runs, always fatigued, cant concentrate, tingling in feet and hands, and i have recently devoloped a rash on my neck and upper chest that is sometimes itchy. Somedays symptoms are worse than other but pretty much constant. I have had a blood test for celiac but was negative and i am due to have my 3rd endoscopy in a few weeks. Doctors say it is either anxiety or have hitial hernia/ulcer. Celiac runs in my family, sister and mother have it and aunties and uncles. I do not have any weight loss and my weight pretty much stays the same. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I am thinking of trying a gluton free diet but obviously this is very difficult!

Anxiety!!

Bah!!!

Calling you anxious is a polite way of calling you "emotional".

Grrrrrrrrrrr.

If celiac runs in your family, as it appears it does, then you are a prime candidate for it. Have they found any damage in all those endoscopies? Are they even looking for it? It seems like you are a prime candidate for it.

I hope you can get a good doctor sorted out if you don't like your doctor. Esp. if they are calling you anxious.

I think you can get the rash biopsied too, not just your intestines during the endo. Ask about it, maybe easier than anything else. Good luck!
