  1. Urticaria And Celiac

    coincidental that these 2 subjects are listed together....because i have had cold urticaria since my teens, i am now 32. also, i tested positive for the dq8 celiac gene (in the process of other testing to get diagnosis). Also, around the same time , my 6 year old son started showing signs of cold urticaria- although his is much worse than mine ever was. he has since been diagnosed with allergies to grass, dog dander and cold. His ped started him on a daily allergy pill around one month ago, but he is still showing signs of celiac....most obvious hands and feet tingling and headache. i want to have him tested for gluten allergy, as my gut (no pun intended) tells me that he has celiac too. what are your thoughts
  2. THANKS to all for your input. I am just trying to find my way in this new,foreign world. Just to verify that i didnt overlook "antibody" testing i did call my doc. For some reason, they said that they will do it, upon request and pre-payment. I dont really understand why they didnt do it with all the other testing. Plus, i have been off gluten for 4 weeks. I am so confused and just seem to feel progressively worse and worse. I have a headache Every single day. I dont know what to do next.
  3. I have had symptoms that could be linked to gluten intolerance for years now. i am 32 now, but my first sign, constipation, started in my early 20s. Finally, out of desperation i recently decided to get tested. Quite frankly, i assumed that the doctor would likely just tell me that i was gluten sensitive, tell me to cut it from my diet ect. As it turns out he did A Lot of blood work. I am very deficient in ferritin & vitamin D, my thyroid is very low, high leptin along with a positive DQ8 test. The doctor i see finds the gene test as proof enough to remove all gluten from my diet. He said that i most likely have Celiac, and since the other more definitive tests are difficult to get a black and white diagnosis that i should basically take the gene test as the only proof i need. what are your thoughts? is the DQ8 gene enough proof for you? would further testing change anything about my future/diet?
  4. Withdrawal Symptoms

    I have been recently diagnosed with Celiac and ive been gluten-free for around 4 weeks now. i have had a headache Every single day.i have always gotten headaches quite frequently, but Nothing like this. my doctor put me on a ton of supplements which i have now stopped for 2 weeks. He suggests taht i start 1 back at a time, for 3 days to rule out headache causes. So my queston is, is this just something i need to get used to. i am miserable! even more so than before my diagnosis. and nsaids (i take too many, i know) upset my stomach so bad now. Do i just suffer through the headache and take nothing?
