  1. Does one have to eat 4 slices of bread a day? I usually eat one sandwich per day... Plus some cake here and there and eat whatever I want. Isn't it enough? I will do the bloodwork in 1,5 months at the earliest... Feel terrible in my belly at this moment. It wasn't that bad in the beginning, but now I feel sick in the morning also:/
  2. I would like to figure out my fertility issues most of all... Did thyroid tests and prolactine, but they were normal. I live in Europe, and I heard there is no sedation here:/ Thats why everyone says it's terrible. Just kids get Midazolam, but I'm to big for that now unfortunately! Few days after I started eating this gluten I suddenly got purple petecchia spots on my thighs. Have never seen that before, and then my nose started bleeding quite heavily. I freaked out a bit... Especially about these purple dots close together on my legs! Thank God they disappeared after a few days. There is rheumathoid arthritis in the family. Isn't this related to Celiac? Do you have problems with painful lymphnodes in the neck? I have it a bit...
  3. I also feel some strange fasciculations of my muscles and intestines when I started eating wheat again...Doesn't hurt, but quite annoying. Does anyone here have that?
  4. Yes, no pain no gain I guess? But if I test positive for Celiac, I will have to do endoscopy.... Which I'm guessing is even worse! But how can one have Celiac without symptoms??? I don't get it... Doesn't your intestines become damaged? And that must hurt or? What were your symptoms at presentation?
  5. Hi, I'm new girl here. I suspect that I might have Celiac disease or at least some for of gluten or wheat intolerance. I have always had a sensitive stomach all my life, but it has gotten worse the past 2 years. The past 2 years during the summer when I was working I had really bad stomach pain with loose stools, and the last summer it felt even worse and it felt like I was loosing weight, or loosing the fat on my body despite eating alot. Also had pain in my arms and legs then. Went to the doctor cause the pain was so bad, and they thought it was irritabel bowel. Other than this I have quite long menstrual cycles, nearly always more than 35 days and often irregular. The past 2 years I also started bleeding in the middle of the cycles and then for 2 weeks. The gynechologist said it was ovulation failure. I also was pregnant a few years ago which ended in a miscarriage. I have some white spots (decalcification) on my teeth, one big one in the front and small white spots on many of the others. The dentist said it might be due to fluor... I suffered from alot of nose bleeding as a child. And when I was around 5 I remember having bad pain in the epigastric region shortly after breakfast in the morning which disappeared during the rest of the day. Many episodes like this. I never told anyone about it when I was younger. I went off gluten during the autumne and my stomach, which used to be distended, became flat. I was less tired and needed less sleep during the day. But now the doctors want to test my antibodies and I have to eat gluten for 1,5 months more!!! After 2 weeks on that diet I feel like getting worse right now. Uncomfortable in my stomach and I have a distended abdomen again, look fat when Im not really:/ Anyway, I was wondering what are the chances that I have this Celiac disease? Or may it be some other intolerance to gluten/wheat? How severe should symptoms of Celiac disease be? I also had joint pain for over 6 months with morning stiffness in 2007 and abdominal discomfort.
