  1. Weird Symptoms?

    Hey everyone! So I got the blood test results back and I tested negative for celiac disease but positive for severe lactose intolerance I've been eating gluten and there doesn't seem to be a problem anymore which is great. Thanks for all your help! PS is here a way to unsubscribe to this forum seeing as I don't think I'll need it anymore? Thanks!
  2. Weird Symptoms?

    Thank you! So which should I do first? The endoscopy or the blood test? And if I do one should I do the other? Thank you for your help!
  3. Weird Symptoms?

    Hey everyone. Thanks for your replies! I had blood tests done and while the gluten one got messed up (was never told by doctor how long or how much to eat) the lactose one indicated a severe lactose intolerance! I will be doing an endoscopy end of September to look for more damage. I've been eating gluten for the past few days and I don't have bad symptoms like I used to. Does that mean I have a problem with gluten still? Thanks!
  4. Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum but have been experiencing odd symptoms for the past two years. I had had many food issues in the past which my doctor told me might be a gluten or lactose intolerance. It took a while for me to understand that so I ate less gluten and started taking the lactose pills. I stopped taking the lactose pills in late July because they made me feel sick.I also went to see a gastro who recommended I do blood tests which i am waiting for the results. I'm also scheduled to do an endoscopy in September. My symptoms are: abdominal pain, heartburn, cramping, bad acid reflux, loose stool (not diarrhea but close) and just a general feeling of nausea after eating. My parents are sick of me complaining of stomach pain but don't think anything is wrong with me and I think there is. Please let me know what this could be and what i can do to prevent it. Thank you.
  5. Any Celiac Teens Out There?

    Hey I'm Dana, I'm 20 and I think I was diagnosed 2 years ago. Glad to meet others who have celiac/can't eat gluten!
