  1. Thank you everyone for taking the time to respond. I'll get the proper testing done and go from there. Although I know that I've some type of celiac panels done a few yrs ago. They were negetive. Whatever is going on is really putting a damper on my life right now. Very hard. Thanks again.
  2. Starting about three months ago, I've had diarrhea almost daily. Sometimes every day. I get horrible lower cramps before each episode. Sometimes I even get the cramping before doing a normal bowel movement. I went gluten free, and paleo, for a few months and I felt great. But this was before all of my symptoms started. As soon as I stopped the diet, which was almost immediately, I went back to eating whatever I wanted. This is when I started getting the horrible diarrhea. Is there a gold standard test that I could ask for from my GI doctor? I also have bleeding sometimes . I believe that's due to some hemorrhoids that I was diagnosed with a few years ago. Not sure if I should get another colonsoscopy because of the bleeding, or not. Just wish I knew what was going on. I'm scared for my health. It's so uncomfortable. Any suggestions? Does this sound like a wheat allergy? Thanks, C.A.
