  1. Panic Attacks & Gluten

    Hi Everyone So since March the doctors are saying you do have celiac disease, wait you don't have celiac disease. It's so annoying. I had an EGD and a Colonoscopy , and both times biopsies were taken and they were negative, but before that I had a positive blood test for the TTG, but the other part of the panel was negative. THey told me the next thing to do is get genetic testing to see if I have the DQ2 or DQ8 gene. It's now September almost October and finally just got the genetic testing done last week, still waiting for the results. I thought I was going crazy about two weeks ago, I started getting symptoms of a panic attack, rapid heart rate, feeling like I can't breathe, tingling feet, and sweating. I feel this way everyday, I can sleep perfectly fine. The other day I went to the ER because my pulse got to 160 and I just felt like I was going to pass out, they told me I was fine and gave me Xanax and sent me on my way. I'm not big into medicaitons. I tried it and it just made me feel out of it. THe next day I felt the same way again. People tell me I need to talk to someone and I probably have a lot of stress, but after reading these blogs I feel so much better that other people are feeling this way with gluten intolerance. I have so many symptoms of Celiac disease, and I just want to be diagnosed 100%, because I don't want to feel like this anymore. I love these forums, and they help so much.
  2. Hi no he did the whole celiac panel that was the only one that was abnormal.
  3. Hi thanks for replying, I'm only 24 . He said that he believes it just a false positive and that I shouldn't worry. I know I'm young but I'm miserable. So I guess I will just start the diet. I'm also thinking about getting a second opinion. Thanks again.
  4. HI my name is Dawn, I'm new to this forum, but have a few concerns and I was hoping that someone could help me out? I blood work for celiac disease in beginning of march. My Transglutaminase was 73.8 and they said it should be less than 15. My GI doctor told me I need to get a Upper End, it came back negative, he then made me go get a small bowel barium series x-ray, that to is negative. I have all the symptoms I have constipation,extremely low iron my ferritin is a 2, I get dry skin, migranes everyday. Now they want me to have a colonoscopy. Has anyone had this happen. Can the blood work be wrong the biopsy right or other way around. I'm so upset I keep going through all these tests, and no answer. I just want to feel better.
  5. Hi if someone could help me?? I went to a gastro doctor because I was having some GI problems and he tested me for Celiac disease one of the tests the Transglutaminase IgA came back extremely high, so they told me I needed a Endosocopy , I got one I got the results yesterday and he said that they are negative, but it still concerned because my blood results were high? Now tomorrow I have to have a small bowel barium xray series, to look at my all of my small intestines. Anyone ever have a negative endoscopy and then later get diagnosed with Celiac Disease?
