  1. Symptoms Not Disapearing- Ibs?

    Thank you for all your replies, even though I haven't even seen them until just now! Its been about a year and nothing has changed; I'm on the FODMAP diet now and yes I've been cutting out dairy most of the time for the past year. My doctor told me that I probably do have IBS, or IBS symptoms I guess, so I feel like I'm on my own now since my gastroenterologist discharged me. I've started to develop stomach pains now so I'm really lost.. has anyone else with IBS managed to control your symptoms? I feel like its never going to happen!
  2. I haven't been able to find any other threads about IBS on here, so I'm sorry if there's already another post on this! But I've had celiac for about 6 months, was diagnosed just before my 20th birthday, and I've be extremely careful about cutting out gluten. I'm also lactose intolerant and I make sure to take the pills for it. The thing is I'm still getting the symptoms, so I think I have IBS. I mentioned it to my doctor and they seem to just focus on the whole celiac thing so I have no clue if I have IBS or not. I've heard that people feel better soon after they cut out gluten, however, I haven't really felt much better at all. I'm just wondering if anyone else's symptoms have taken as long to disapear? I'm praying that I don't have IBS so if anyone has any advice that would be great!
  3. I found out officially in feb of this year that I have celiac disease.. except despite going gluten free and being SO careful, I feel like I haven't gotten any better, even after almost 4 months. I had heard that most people feel better immediately so I'm a little worried, but this kind of makes me feel better haha. I still don't know what to do though
  4. Any Celiac Teens Out There?

    Hey I'm alex, and I'm from ontario, canada. I'm 20 years old and was diagnosed a few months ago just before my 20th birthday. Its been so hard and I keep accidently eating gluten! Its even more difficult in university when everyone eats out all the time. I too don't know anyone with celiac so nobody I know really understands it. If anyone else is in college too or has any advice that'd be awesome!
  5. When Do You Speak Up?

    Good point! Honestly, letting people know doesn't really do much. They will feel sorry for you for a split second, then go back to enjoying their pizza. And I don't trust anyone making me food either.. people even get offended when I read the ingredients after they have already told me "there's no wheat in it". Just have to be safe haha!
  6. When Do You Speak Up?

    I have the exact same problem! I was just diagnosed a couple of months ago so its really hard right now, especially in university where everyone eats out all the time. My roomates don't seem to notice or care at all, and constantly talk about how good their food is all the time! They even thought it was ridiculous of me to suggest bringing my own toaster.. I've even started avoiding going out for dinner because people don't really get it. I agree though, they really need counselling or something for people who aren't quite sure how to deal with the situation. Glad I'm not alone!
