I think my 3 yr old acid reflux has came back. She has been having a cough and nausea and then throws up. It seems to be happening at night or nap time. Also I sometimes hear here whining in her sleep. I guess she is hurting. She does complain about her tummy hurting alot to. She has not gone gluten-free yet because she got to get the scope on the 25. She used to have it when she was younger and then it went away. Also does anybody else had it go away when they went gluten-free.

Mine goes away and stays away as long as I avoid gluten and lactose if I get any amounts it returns and I have to take a Prilosec to stop it. You can try giving her an antacid to help lessen her pain but check with the doctor first for dosage and type. It won't affect the out come of the biopsy as long has she continues to eat gluten.

My 6 year old had horrible reflux up until he was about 9 month old. After that he developed a bad rattling in his chest. At that point I believe he was having silent reflux. All of the reflux I know contributed to his breathing problems and as a result he was on pulmicort twice a day till he was three. At that point he didn't have any more breathing issues(and still doesn't). However when he started last June complaining of his belly hurting (he was 5.5 yrs old) he would complain he was having "puke burps" a lot. 5 months later I had his celiac panel redone and he showed up positive. The only time now he complains of either the belly ache or "puke burps" is when he gets accidently glutened.

For myself my main gi complaint was horrible reflux. It gradually got to the point that I couldn't sleep without sitting up at it's worst. I refused to go on meds because I didn't want to bandaid the problem. Unfortunately it took another 2 years after this to get diagnosed with celiac. I learned to deal with the reflux and I avoided things I "knew" would make it worse (didn't know about gluten). After I went gluten free, within a month my reflux was gone! Anytime I would get glutened by accident I could tell because my reflux would come back within 30 minutes to hours. Now my gluten reactions have changed. I get very mild reflux if I get any at all but I do bloat up within hours of being exposed. Then by two days later I have horrendous D and steatorrhea. I usually have to eat very simple and take creon during the week to two weeks it takes for me to get back to normal. I know this is bad to say, but I think the reflux was easier to deal with than my symptoms I get now from an accidental glutening. I guess this is why this disease is so darn weird.
