  1. Thank you for your feedback. I greatly appreciate it. I have an appointment on Friday to get the results of the biopsy. I am thinking that even if it is inconclusive I should go gluten-free because of the blood results, family members having celiac disease, and multiple symptoms which are consistent with celiac disease. Actually, I was sedated through my IV and when I started having difficulty, they gave me more anesthesia through my IV. The doctor said that he gave me twice as much as he would have under normal circumstances. Also, the same doctor did my niece and nephew's procedures and they did not have any difficulties. So, I tend to believe that it wasn't him, but some odd reaction by my body. Thanks again!
  2. My niece, nephew, and sister were recently diagnosed with celiac disease. So, I looked up the symptoms and decided that I probably had it too. I had the blood work done two weeks ago and tested as a "weak positive". I had the endoscopy last Thursday and I had great difficulty. My doctor thinks that I have a very strong gag reflex because the numbing throat spray did not work as it should have. I will spare you the details. Has anyone else had this expereince? I am so scared that the results will be inconclusive and I will have to re-biopsied. I have vowed to not do the procedure again unless it is a mater of life or death. Thanks in advance for whatever help you can offer.
