  1. Hi there, So I need some help if anyone wouldn't mind just taking a sec to give this a read. I have been suffering with problems with my stomach for over two years now. I had been on the waiting list in Ireland with the hospital to put the camera down for a year and a half but have now moved to Scotland so waiting to get tests done here. The problems started in a part of my life which was very stressful. The symptoms started with just random foods causing my tummy to swell and a feeling of discomfort and just general sick feeling. Two years later and the symptoms have gone to serious quick swelling almost instantly after eating, vomiting, headaches, palpitations and tiredness all the time. Someone mentioned to me that I might be gluten intolerant so I went on a gluten free diet the last two weeks. For the first few days I actually felt a little better, my tummy didn't well too much and I felt for the first time in a long while a little healthy and actually had some energy. I then had milk in my gluten free cereal and the pain was worse than it had been before. My realization was then that maybe I am celiac. I started a celiac diet too. I was irritated but happy that finally I might have an answer. Comes to tonight and I have a few squares of gluten free, nut free and dairy free chocolate and my tummy is huge, straight to the bathroom again and overall sickness. I am just fed up now. I don't think I can eat anything. Does anyone else experience anything like this? I would love to hear from you please. Thanks for reading xx.
