  1. Hello everyone, I am new here and have not had official gluten testing done because I am unable to see a GI until 2/4. My symptoms all seemed to start (or get progressively worse) about a month ago. The symptoms include abdominal pain which was located right under the rib cage mainly on the right side which would occasionally also occur on the left side. Diarrhea has been common and I haven't had a "normal" bowel movement in forever. I have also been experiencing chest pains which feel like really bad heartburn. I have been in the ER twice because of these pains where they have done a EKG, CT scan, ultrasound and different blood work. Everything has seemed to come back normal minus high white blood cell (13) and slightly elevated blood pressure. My family seems to have a trend of gluten intolerance and a cousin who is confirmed celiac. I have tried since Sunday to go gluten free and see if it helps with my issues. The first couple days I felt better, only using the restroom once per day which made me very happy and excited, thinking I may have a better idea of what's going on and stop some of the anxiety issues that have accompanied this whole process. Last night I started to develop a pain in my lower left abdomen, which I had not felt before, and today my bowel movements have gone crazy again starting off with what seemed to be darker than normal in the morning and diarrhea since then. I'm so confused as to what is going on and would just like to know of others have experienced things like this or if it sounds more like I am suffering from a different illness
