  2. So I dont have celiac.. its good news. I just have stress or something. Anyhow, I need to close my account and I Have not been able to find how to do this on the website. THanks!
  3. I just did the same thing I went to my allergist and he said it was a good idea that I thought of celiac disease because of my symptoms and ran the 4 panel test and its a good thing I went to him because I went to my regular doctor the next day and he said that he thought there were only 2 tests and not 4. Anyhow, Since my allergist is more leaning towards crohn's disease because I had a fistulotomy in 2002 and they never looked any further to see why I had to have one of those at the age of 23 he wants me to get a colonoscopy. I dont know if that is just as good as an endoscopy but My regular doctor had to set the colonoscopy up because thats how referrals are done for my insurance and thats scheduled for december 3rd. They are going to do a biopsy for celiac at the same time. Im really nerve wracked over this because im in the military!! They will probably kick me out! I had them test my stool also. Im to the point where im telling the doctor what to do instead of letting him figure it out. I hope all works out for you and congratulations on your wedding! Please let us know how it went!
  4. I just realized the exzema we get is a symptom also.n I get it on my hands....I dont have it now but it comes and goes. Thank you for your reply. I just wanted that affirmation that I was not crazy, or a hypochondriac. If anyone else has symptoms like mine I would love to hear your stories. Being able to identify with others really relieves some stress until that doctors appointment comes.
  5. I am trying to figure out what is wrong with me and my son and I suspect we are celiac. My symptoms are. On a regular diet where I eat just like everyone else does, (not dieting) after lunch I get extreme abdominal pain. Pain that doesnt go away with passing gas or going #2. I try to walk it off but the only way I can get it to go away is by lieing down till it goes away and it will continue until I do that. Its wierd because it happens right after lunch everytime I stop dieting and watching what I eat and its not fair! Seriously, I dont want to diet for the rest of my life eating apples etc! Even if I eat those microwave smart ones I get the seizing of my intestines attack. I know that I have to pretty much stay away from vegetables. I cant eat brocolli, gum with fake sweetener....etc because those start me on the cycle of pain. I had a partial bowel obstruction and I was soo miserable it was horrible and It all starts when I start eating like a normal person would. The abdominal pain and immediate seizing of my intestines and bloating are my symptoms oh and CONSTANT gas and not just regular kind, the kind that will clear a room and thats embarrasing!!! I dont seem to have any others except that i have dark circles under my eyes..and still have acne and Im 28! My mom says they I have always been a sick kid (person) that I was always complaining about my stomach when I was little just like my son is doing now and I looked like an allergy kid just like him so that
