Acid reflux sometimes ONLY resolves itself with a gluten free diet, according to some sources. I'd say, working through your doctor, try it for four weeks and see how you feel.

I would at least recommend getting tested done before you try gluten free. Blood test include: IgA/IgG tTG, IgA/IgG DPG, IgA/IgG gliadin antibodies and a total IgA. You also could choose to have an EGD done with duodenal biopsies(minimum 8) to look for celiac. They also look for other things too. Some people are comfortable going gluten free based on blood work only. Testing can have about 20-30% false negative rates. If a diagnosis is not important then trial gluten free for a good three months to see if you have improvement. Then you can challenge yourself with gluten to see what your reaction is. There are some practioners that will diagnose based on elimination. Know that if you later choose to do testing you will have to go back on gluten for a min. of three months to have the best chance of accurate testing.

Heartburn can be a symptom of celiac. It was my main GI symptom. I had others but I had them all my life and "thought" it was normal. It was the first symptom to improve gluten free. I will get a recurrance of heartburn/reflux if I get glutened.

Before I went gluten free my symptoms were: heart burn, ingestion and vomiting all at the same time.....I felt like I was going to die. These symptoms lasted until all the gluten was out of my body. (this I only realised in hindsight). This went on for four months. I actually began to think that I must have pancreatic cancer. Then my daughter was diagnosed as a celiac, and being a mother I thought I would research celiac disease. Low and behold I find myself reading about gluten intolerance and it hit me........ this is me. From that moment I went gluten free and I have never had a symptom since.

I had 7 years of acid reflux that responded poorly to Prilosec. It got absolutely unbearable in the months before getting my somewhat murky celiac diagnosis. Resolved after 2 days on the gluten free diet. Now, reflux is my 'early warning sign' that I've had a low-level exposure to gluten.

I would recommend you go to your Dr. ASAP and ask for the gluten panel blood test. Your Dr. can advise you from there.

Yes..acid reflux can mean Celiac, but there can be other causes as well.

I had it bad for several years. I went on various RX meds and one by one they quit working. Once going gluten-free it stopped.

Now if I accidently get cc it's the first symptom to return.

Good luck to you..I hope you get some answers so you can feel better.
