  1. A few weeks ago I was having anxiety attacks and burping due to a nervous habbit. I found out my mother has cancer. So the GI doctor did an endoscopy and biopsy. I had a blood test to confim. To find out I have Celiac. I can not believe this because I've never had any types of problems with anything. He put me on a glutan free diet and I became very sick with all the celiac symptoms. Went back to my family doc and she put me back on my diet and to cut back a bit on glutan. She felt I have no symptoms and we should just monitor this. The GI Doc feels this could be early stages and there will not be any signs, maybe five years from now. This diet is making me sicker then ever. The GI Doc wanted me to speak with a dietician. I spoke to, two dieticians and they both felt if I'm not having a problem don't worry about it just cut back and if I do have a problem then I should be on this diet. I have done a lot of reading and some people never have any side affects but most do. I feel great now and I've cut back a lot. I do not know what to think? There are a lot of children and adults with this problem. Why is there no meds or vaccines?
