My 9 year old son started suffering from terrible stomach pains in February after being really sick with tonsillitis. These pains lead to him being seem by many doctors, spending a night in hospital, and an entire month away from school. We were told lots of 'it could be this, that or the other, but probably either stress or IBS' with no real answers.

Finally this week (nearly 5 months later) we got told his blood test came back positive for Coeliac Disease and we're now waiting for a biopsy to confirm, but paediatrician seemed fairly certain. The more I read about celiac disease the more is falling into place. I just wish it had been picked up sooner so he didn't have to suffer so much.

I have been reading lots of threads on here, and it helps to know so many parents have been through similar situations. I hope the biopsy appointment comes through quickly so we can start getting Alex well.

My 12 year old daughter and I are going for our blood tests on Tuesday. Paediatrician thinks there is a strong chance that the IBS I was diagnosed with 10 years ago could be celiac disease.
