  1. So which did you guys get diagnosed with first? The hypo or coeliac? What are nightmare having to find answers for two things! I'm having trouble enough with one, waiting for a phone call today for a different gastro guy. Can't believe when you are going private they wouldn't test for intolerances!?
  2. Thanks peeps. I do eat gluten at the moment, just not masses. Thought if been gluten free totally for last two days but have just found it in my stir fry sauce! I'm gonna book an appointment tomorrow. I just want a diagnosis of SOMETHING.....then I might be able to start treating myself!
  3. So a year and a half ago I saw gastro specialist for bad bloating, pains, no appetite and constipation. Barium and ultrasound confirmed there is nothing wrong with my 'mechanics' and I was sent away with movicol. Six months layer I went back with the bloating and feeling sick. I asked to be tested for Intolerances and he said a gastroenterologist doesn't do that and sent me away with domperidone!? After researching further I started having colonics and on advise of therapist cut out bread, pasta, noodles etc. tummy got almost better for 4-5months but has slowly gotten worse again. I do eat gluten, the odd biscuit, slice of pizza at a party etc but not masses. Due to movicol I now have a good bm nearly every day but have had some pretty bad episodes of bloating, pains and a total loss of appetite in last few weeks. And I love my grub!! :-( Do you think I should insist on a coeliac test? Or is it really unlikely with my symptoms? Most people have the opposite troubles..... Any help appreciated!!
