  1. Thank you for your comments, my daughter has a paed app next week so will def bring it up then. How do you feel about home tests? And only been off gluten (apart from slip up last night) one week, would it still affect results? I am in the UK btw Thanks xxx
  2. Hi I have just joined this site because I have been reading up on celiac disease and I'm now wondering if I have been misdiagnosed. I was diagnosed with IBS in my late teens, I suffered on and off with flare ups etc but seemed to improve thrugh pregnencies etc. in the last couple of years I have noticed a really sensitivity to fatty or spicey food (takeaways) and white bread. I recently cut out white bread which helped a little. In the meantime I became very ill with achy joints and severe fatigue and was diganosed with Fibromyalgia. I have put on duluxetine which has helped a little with tiredness but not reall aches and pains. My IBS symptoms though were getting worse, so much so that I had a bad flare up with urgency, runny stools and cramps so bad I could hardly stand. The doctor put me on mebeverene and suggested the FODMAP diet. I took the meds which really havent done much but eventually gave in and have been doing the FODMAP diet for just over a week and I have felt great, tummy is better, aches and pains are reduced and fatigue alomost disappeared! Yesterday had a busy day with the in-laws over but stuck to the diet except had chicken tikka, this morning I feel aweful, tummy cramps, aches and pains and nausea. feels like tummy flu. What do you think? does this sound at all familar? I should add my brother has had tummy issues since birth and has always been told ibs but never tested for celiac disease, but now wants to be. My son also has aspergers and has always had soft floaty stools. My daughter has an iga defficencey and has fatigue, achy muscles and joints and has terrible mood swings, which have come on gradually over the last 2 years. She is more than often constipated but does go alot, she does have cramps and urgency though. Any comments would be much appreciated thanks xxx
