  1. Thank you guys for the resonses. I am much improved since following the glutten free life. I guess I am just frustrated with the doctors and lack of definate (sp?) responses from them.
  2. Actually I didn't know about the stricture until I requested a copy of the procedure report.
  3. My story starts in oct of 2008 when I started having panick attacks. To me they just started for no reason. I was also having abd pain and not able to each any significant amount of food without pain. I was admitted in November for dehydrations. The GI doctor did an egd which showed gastritis, esophageal stricture and damaged villa with probable celiac disease according to the biopsy. I asked the gi doctor to do blood work and he ordered a I think a ttg-igm. After bugging his office for 2 weeks to get the results his nurse called and says the lab was negative and I didn't have celiac disease. I highly doubt she showed the doctor the results before telling me since I bugged her so much. Is this possible? Thanks
