  1. Hi Libby. I just wanted to let you know that my mom called the hospital yesterday and they still haven't recieved my results back yet. It's frustrating because it hasn't been a good week, and I can't wait to get this confusion over with.
  2. Thanks! Is that something I can just get from the pharmacy, or does it take a prescription???
  3. The test results should be back late in the week. I have family problems, so I do not recieve a lot of support so that makes it even harder, but my boyfriend and his mom are really good to me!! Instead of me pushing away food, she always has fresh fruit and she's making me tea. I'm really ancy about the results, and I hope they find out what's wrong soon, because I really want to be healed
  4. Libby, Thanks again for your advice. Easter break is in about a month, and I'm looking forward to it because it will be nice to get away, but also not, because I'm worried that I might not feel better. The fruit was a little hard on my stomach, but it was better than anything else. I'll try some tea today, and see how that helps my stomach. I'm one day closer to knowing, which is great. I'll let you know how things go!
  5. Libby, Thanks so much for your reply! Since I posted my message today, I was wondering if ANYONE would respond! I went out to the movie tonight and it was the first time I've been out of the house since Tuesday afternoon, and I was feeling fine until I got to the theater and my boyfriend got me to eat a little since I've barely eaten all week. I was so hungry at supper that I cut up fresh strawberries, kiwi, oranges and pineapple and ate that. I managed to eat a little before I was scared to continue. It's just been really tough these past weeks, and I've never wanted to have something stop so quickly. I keep thinking about if I have Celiac...it's gonna drive me crazy to give up my favorite foods!! This next week is gonna be the hardest of my life and I don't know how I'm gonna get through it! My boyfriend has been great, but I know it's boring for him to stay inside with me day after day since I feel too yucky to go out! I've also been extremely tired because I can't sleep either because I'm owrried or because I'm running to the bathroom 8 times a night. Also on my mind...what if it's not Celiac?? Then what? I know that something is REALLY wrong with me and I'm worried that they won't be able to find out what it is! I've been stressed enough the past year, and this isn't helping one little bit! The week has been okay not having to worry about school (a few days off) but going back to school Monday is gonna be so hard. I'm also supposed to go to Cancun with my boyfriend for Easter, and I'm stressed about not feeling better! I just feel AGGGHH! PLEASE help!!
  6. Hi everyone!! I have been feeling really lousy for about a month, where at first I would get very sick just a few minutes after eating supper foods, but mostly pasta, and have to run to the washroom. Then my stomach is so irritated after eating many foods I didn't know what to do. So I went to the doctor, and he immediently thought it was Celiac Disease. I had blood tests takes two days ago, and also stool samples. Since they had to be sent away to the nearest city, I have to wait at least a week. I feel so gross, and I haven't been able to keep anything down so I am tired and weak Would anyone be able to help me with whether or not they think that it is Celiac Disease, and PLEASE give me ANY tips for foods that may make me feel okay after eating (which seems very impossible as my stomach didn't even want Soup Broth), or tips of what I can do to just feel better. I appreciate all of this as I am just a teen and it's all so confusing for me!!
