  1. Help With Breathing

    So you're feeling better after going gluten free? What exactly is corn free? This is all very overwhelming. I am going to the doctor tomorrow for a follow up and am going to mention the blood tests that the other commentor mentioned. You had the breathing issue? I have been reading up on the internet about the whole gluten issue and didn't see that mentioned anyplace so I wasn't sure if it was a symptom of this or not.
  2. Help With Breathing

    Thank you so much for all the info. I have a follow up appointment with the gastrontologist (spelling?) tomorrow to go over the CAT scan results. I am not expecting to hear any news since no other test has shown anything. I am going to ask him about the tests you mentioned. I've written them all down! Yes, I wake up with this full feeling but it does increase throughout the day. Sleeping is such a relief because I am not bothered by it at all. Besides for then, it is difficult all day. People hear me breath deeply and think I am sighing and often they mention it, saying things like "Wow that is a big sigh.". All I'm doing is trying to get a deep breath! So there are three different things: Celiac disease, Gluten intolerance and Gluten allergy? Wow - lots of information to digest, no pun intended.
  3. Hi. Hope someone might have some info for me. I started having difficulties breathing about two months ago. It feels as though my stomach is full and I can't take a deep breath because there is no "room". This feeling also causes issues with eating, as even when I am hungry it seems as though there is no "room" for food. I have had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, upper GI series with barium swallow, ultrasound and cat scan. None show any problems. I am now taking Gastro Calm without much success. I do take fish oil daily which someone said could cause digestive issues. I had my gallbladder removed about 8 years ago. Also, I was treated about 12 years ago for acid reflux which cleared up and last year there was some question about if I had GERD or not. Again, that cleared up. Someone said I probably had a gluten allergy/sensitivity. Has anyone had these type of symptoms? Also is there a definitive test for gluten allergy/intolerance?
