  1. Thanks so much Ursa Major. You were very helpful. I feel better that maybe the doctor could be waiting for my appointment to give me the results. I think I will go ahead and try the gluten free diet regardless of my results. I have just started to research the condition which is what led me here. Thanks again!
  2. Hi. I had my EGD two weeks ago tomorrow. My doctor thought that I might have ulcer's or hiatal hernia. After the EGD he said I had gastritis, excessive acid, and the possible beginnings of celiac disease. He took biopsies to confirm the celiac disease. I researched celiac disease and lo and behold I have every symptom including the infertility and recurrent miscarriages along with the other really common symptoms. The only pregnancy I carried to term was when I cut out carbs for fear of flaring up endometriosis. I hadn't heard anything as of Friday so I called the office. They said I tested positive for H. Pylori from my blood work, but they didn't see my biopsy results. She said the results might be in the doctor's folder at the hospital. I have a follow-up on the 30th. Did your doctor wait until your follow-up or did he/she call you? I'm really hoping for positive biopsy and an answer to my poor health for the past few years. I'm getting worried that I haven't received a call.
  3. Hi. I had an EGD with biopsies done a week and a half ago. After the EGD the doctor said that I had gastritis, excessive stomach acid, and saw the possible beginnings of celiac disease. I was just wondering what he might be referring to. I called the doctor's office a couple of days ago and they said I tested positive for H. Pylori but they didn't see the biopsy results in my folder. She said the doctor keeps part of the chart at the hospital. I have had lots of crazy symptoms for quite a while. When the doctor mentioned celiac disease my DH looked up the symptoms and I have every single one except for the rash. It's been almost two weeks now and I would think he would call me if the results were positive. I have a follow up on the 30th. Would he wait until then to give me the results? To be quite honest I am going to be disappointed if the biopsy is negative. I am starting to worry that this is the case.
