  1. Wow reading alot of these posts have answered alot of my questions but brought up more. I was 12 when I started having bad GI problems, went to the doctors and was eventually told i had food alergy's wheat, rye, oats, barley, dairy etc...I was 21 when I was diagnosed with eplipepsy after a grand mal seziure. I was 36 when I was diagnosed with bi-polar. I have had bouts of diahrea all my life but passed it off as alleries I did "cheat" as much as I could. It got worst about 6 months ago when I had to stay home from work because of severe diahrea (like water) and I couldn't leave the house. I googled it and found this forum and read all the symptoms of other people and said yes to almost all of them. I went gluten free for a week before going to the GP and found it to be much better. MY GP said I'd have to go back on gluten for testing but if I just wanted to go gluten free that'd be o.k. if it works. My questions...my son has been diagnosed with Mental Health problems, severe anxiety he barely leaves the house, miagraine headaches, muscle aches just no GI problems. How do I convince a 20 year to get tested. He lives at home as he can't work. My other question...my mom was first diagnosed with CREST disease and then they said it was an undiagnosed auto-immune diase that eventually killed her with pulmonary fibrosis. Could this have anything to do with Ciliac Disease?
