  1. Thank you to all who shared your thoughts and advice. I appreciate it.
  2. For years, every once in a while I would get the most horrific stomach pains that would last for 5 or 6 hours at night. I could never narrow it down to any specifc foods or drinks, and no doctors (the 2 I went to) were able to figure it out. I had an edoscopy, a stomach sonogram, all sorts of test with no diagnosis. 4 months ago I went to a new doctor and when I told her my symptoms, right away, she had an idea what it was. She took blood and the test came back that I had the "antibodies" for celiac. My numbers for this test should be around 45 and I was at 145. So doc told me to go wheat and gluten free for 3 months to see how I feel. Since then, I've felt great. No stomach pains, heart burn is gone. All seems to be OK. But doc hasn't had me go for any other tests to confirm. She says "we go by how yoou feel. If you feel good, stick with the diet." I do feel good, but should I have any other tests to confirm I have celiac? Should I be doing anything else? I welcome any thoughts or comments...
