I have been having stomach problems for about 3 months now. It came on suddenly and seems to get worse at times throughout the days and fine at nights. I was originally placed on Omeprozel and that seemed to help the symptoms some but they never went away. I then was referred to a GI and he performed an Endoscopy that came back inconclusive but showed "what might be the start of Celiac Sprue". Blood work was all normal. I started going gluten free about a week ago and can tell a difference without question but still have some cramps in my stomach throughout times during the day. Dr wanted me to go get a CT scan and I convinced him that i would like to continue to go gluten free for a month till our next appt and see if that works. Has anyone ever had "inconclusive" biopsy and negative blood? This has been so frustrating to me because people think its all in my head and the dr doesn't seem to have any idea whats going on. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Just go ahead and stay gluten free. Sounds like you should, considering the biopsy results. It can take a long time to feel better. I was diagnosed in Nov and I still have stomach problems. I am very sensitive to everything I eat...spices, veggies, etc.

Thanks. I already feel better just knowing there's a place I can get some advice from some others going through the same thing I am. If I hear that it's probably all in my head one more time I am gonna go nuts

I hope you feel better soon!!!

I had several negative blood tests due to various reasons...and MANY inconclusive biopsies until finally I had all positive blood work and positive biopsies in the end! Mine was due to docs that didn't know what they were looking for and didn't take the biopsy in the right part of my intestine.

For me it was the timing of the tests. Seemed like they always tested me in the summer, when I ate all fresh veggies and fruit etc, and just naturally eliminated gluten from my diet...and low and behold tests came back negative. Seemed like they never tested when I was in college eating all that pizza, ramen noodles, and taco bell!
