  1. You're welcome. I am having to prove it for medical reasons that are personal.
  2. My doctor had two tests done one for wheat allergy the other for celiac disease. I can't have any wheat whether it be barley, rye etc. Thanks, even if/when it does come back negative I will find other ways to prove it. Good luck with your dairy testing.
  3. Not something I defiantly did not want to hear, but thanks for being so frank.
  4. I know it's celiac disease because my grandmother has it. Our reactions are the same. It is only genetic, and yes she did get tested..I meant to say I have had celiac for 2 years, but prior to that I have also been lactose intolerant. Thanks for your help I will look into an Epipen.
  5. But here's the thing. Even if I eat a crumb of wheat, my reaction is severe, even life threatening. This is why she still ordered for the test in hopes it may still show up. Even if I breath in flour my throat will start to close let alone eat any wheat for a test to prove it. I'm basically caught in a hard place. And am hopeful my test may turn out positive. Thanks for the help.
  6. Dr Said Not To Eliminate Gluten

    Doctor sounds like he has noooo idea what he is talking about. Keep trying to convince your sister that he is WRONG. It is only going to hurt your niece if she continues to eat wheat.
  7. I had my self tested for celiac disease two days ago, (Friday)through blood work. I think the test was called IgA and have not eaten wheat/gluten for almost a year.(I self diagnosed my self)However, I have recently found out I am allergic to corn, and the day I was to get tested I woke up with a hive on my mouth, a rash on my face, and was having a hard time breathing, my lungs were getting tight. So, my question to you all will my test results have a good chance of showing I have celiac disease now that corn was part of it?
  8. Hopefully some of these answers can help you too. Thankfully, I had my mother with me the last time this happened to me. Same here I had to pull over and let her drive. Look into the drinks with electrolytes in them too.
  9. That makes sense, but you know I can't drink gatorade with out getting sick. So I stopped drinking it years ago. Is there any other type of drink you could recommend?...Thanks all soo much for your feedback.
  10. I have been dealing with celiac disease for a while now, but noticed when I drive in the morning I am disoriented and in a daze. Even after I have eaten breakfest. I become shaky and nervous. Except as soon as 11ish Noon I am fine and am sharp to drive. All the symptoms go away. But this is every morning and has been like this for a loooong time. I am on a strict diet of gluten dairy free foods. And I take a bunch of my vitamins every other day. Can some one help me please? Does celiac disease cause this? Any one else suffer this. I don't have insurance so I can't go to the doctor.
  11. Please Help Me With Menstrual And Ab Pain!

    Tyleol is my only option. I am allergic to all the ones you mentioned. Maybe Pamprin may help. I will get on more calcium. Hopefully this will help me greatly. The menstrual massage sounds helpful too.
  12. The past 3 months every time I get my period or even a few days before I do, I am hit with horrible pain. My uterus muscle contracts pulling down and doesn't relieve its self. When this happens it starts to pull down my ab muscles, then my side muscles and lower back, because they are all attached. The pain is AWFUL. It pulls so much I start to vomit. I feel like I have the body flu every time. My joints and bones and muscles hurt ALL over my body. I am stuck in bed for a week. When I have to get up I have to walk on my hands and knees because my uterus wont relax or my ab muscles. I take tylenol but nothing helps. It has been like this for three months, every period. PLEASE, some one help me on what to do! My period is trying to get kicked started again and my muscles are starting to pull. I know celiac disease does this, but don't know how to get it to stop. Does any one go through this? How can I stop it, please?
  13. I got hit with a real bad virus when I was 25 and that affected my stomach and intestines, and had symptoms too, BUT they dissapeared as well, and didn't really take off till I had turned 28, I am almost 29 now. I was under severe stress which I know woke it up.
  14. Wheather I were to nurse the baby or not genes play a huge role. I could only hope and pray that my children do not get what we all go through. It is not fun by any means.
  15. Yes I know gluten and celiac disease can be hidden as well! I am very aware of it all. I know blood tests don't always come back saying you don't have celiac disease when chances are people will. It's not legit. I have a huge family. So, telling them all to get in line to get tested is less than likely to happen. Your father probably does have celiac disease, but as you said what he goes through is obviously normal to him. When in actuallity it is not.
