  1. Confusion

    She has had an endoscopy to check for acid reflux, an ultrasound to check her liver, kidneys, gallbladder, and pancreas. The endoscopy showed excess acid in her stomach and redness in her escophogus. The ultrasound showed no problems on anything they checked. They ran a cbc to check for anemia and it was okay. Those are the only tests they have ran so far. I have some symptoms too and so does my husband but neither of us has been tested. My mom has acid reflux, IBS, colitis, and other things. I took my daughter off gluten and she was getting a little better. It has only been 2 1/2 weeks, but now the nausea is getting worse and she is starting to vomit again. We are going to the doctor on Thursday. If he does a blood test will celiac show up since she is gluten free now. She is also lactose intolerant since all of this started. Thanks, Claudia

  3. Confusion

    okay so for the past month I have missed like 2-3 weeks of school and have been to like 5 doctors who have told me that I have acid reflux. The medicine they put me on has had absolutly no effect on me. My mom heard about celiacs disease and looked up the symptoms and I had almost every one of them. My symptoms are: Extreme fatigue vomiting Nausea bruising easily constipation and diarrhea pale skin aching joints killer headaches so I'm going to another doctor tomorrow to find more out. What do you think?
