  1. Unsubscribing

    Hi, I'd be grateful if you could advise how I can stop receiving e-mail updates regarding new posts on the forum. I am still very interested in the forum but would like to stop getting these sent to my mail folder. Many thanks
  2. I had my resuls of my test back and they have came back negative for celiac and the other tests that were ran. It is a relief to know one way or the other and at least it's now ruled out. Many thanks for all your help.
  3. Thank you for all your help. I had a doctors appointment today and went in armed with all the info I might need to convince him to test. I didn't need it...he listened to my thoughts and blood tests are getting done tomorrow! Will keep you posted of the outcome. Thanks again.
  4. Thank you. I suspect I may have a fight on my hands to get tested, that was why I was considering the home test kit, but I'm not sure if this is any good?
  5. Cyberprof, I read about that on this site, which was made me wonder even more. If someone could provide that link, that would be fantastic. What a great site this is...and great people, thank you
  6. Thank you, I have a doctors appointment on Monday...I have printed some info off and plan on taking it with me, in case I need it to support the case for a blood test. Will let you know how things go. I'm not sure how hopeful to be since I have just found out that he is of the optinion my nephew may grow out of caeliac !
  7. Thank you all for taking the time to reply. It's very frustrating and worrying when the professionals start raising illnesses such as MS. On reading through some of the posts on this site, its reassuring to hear others experiences. When I had my MRI,showing the problems with disks in my neck, it also showed up UBOs on the brain. Luckily, the neurologist was fantastic and went to great lengths to explain the difference between these and MS Lesions, however, did not mention celiac. It seems celiac is not always at the forefront of doctor's minds but it's interesting to read the posts on these here. I will definitely either get tested or go gluten free and see how I feel. It is worth purchasing the Bio-card test? Has anyone used this..may be easier than persuading my doctor ! Thanks again
  8. I'm 45, and have had serious acne for about 10 years, unable to be treated by antibiotics. I now have problems with tingling (mainly arms,legs and feet), pins and needles and muscle spasms which is being put down to problem with disks in neck. Over the past 6 months, I have developed what I can only describe as severe boils, mainly on thighs and arms. I also have bloating and sometimes look as though I am pregnant ! I have been tested for MS, Rhumatoid Athritis and numerous other conditions but doctors won't test for Celiac as I don't have major stomach problems. My nephew has been diagnosed. Grateful for any thoughts or advice, thanks.
