  1. What To Do

    It has beat me down so much the last 17 years.My symtoms have not changed one bit since gluten-free.I have always had bad nausea all day,pain and nausea after a bowel movement,cramps ect.Pain about 1 inch below my bellybutton on the left side after b.m.The pain medication and bently is the only two meds I take and I know they are gluten-free.I also feel this constant preasure in my bowels.........feels like I am never done going.Also have this knawing feeling in my stomach like bad hunger pains. I have lost so much buissness because I am always sick.The past few weeks have been tough.....................5-6 b.m.'s a day/borderline diarrea.I cant concentrate when I am so uncompfortable. I worry if there can be something else wrong.I am 38 years old and have always dreamed about starting a family.My wife wants to as well...............but I am scared I will get so sick I wont be able to work.I feel like I can barley take care of myself most times.I am afraid the baby could be born sick.There are a million things that have gone through my mind.My doctors have come to a dead end road with me.They really dont know what to do with me now.People talk about having good/bad days.I have not had a single day in 17 years I havnt felt like this..................and it is torture.Will I ever get better?
  2. What To Do

    I have been diagnosed with celiac about 1+1/2 years ago.I had suffered through 15 years of doctors telling me I had I.B.D. or crohns disease.I never had a diagnosis until a year and a half ago.I was diagnosed as celiac and went on a gluten free diet.My villi have recovered,my levels in my Iga & Igg,antigladdin are now normal.My problem is I dont feel ANY better.I have severe pain and discomfort after having a b.m.,and I usally go about 3-5 times a day especially in the morning.Even though I only eat one time a day.I also tend to get very nausiated after b.m.s and eating.I watch my diet very close and eat or drink anything even questionable.Even the persciption pain medication my doctor gives me barely lets me function on a low level.I really beleived I was going to start feeling better ...........but it just has not happened.I even thought I might have bacterial overgroth so my doctor prescribed flaygle for 10 days but no change. My biopsys always looked bad.........crohnic severe inflammation,loss of villi,ect.My igg,iga,antigladdin were all abnormal as well.Why do I still feel terrible?
