  1. I understand that, ATM I'm doing the diet with the idea I have IBS as that is what I was diagnosed with many years ago. But I was curious if the symptom I mention was one someone with celiac had experienced and remedied by complete removal of gluten products and possibly how long that symptom took to go away. Thanks
  2. Hi all, I'm new to these forums but have been a member of IBS forums for a long time. I have suffered with what is diagnosed as IBS for around 7 years. I resonantly started a FODMAP diet which includes part of a gluten free diet and is the first time I have actually seen a bit of improvement. I did a liver test at home a month ago which indicated I had elevated bilirubin at quite a high level (normal, +, ++, +++) and I sat between ++ & +++, Urobilinogen was elevated too. This test probably means nothing but I have read a lot of doctors who see elevated bilirubin and use it as a good indicator of celiac disease.. Until the FODMAP diet I was always soft small BM's, I now see normal BM's on some days. I guess my question lies within my main trigger/symptom(s): But I really want to ask - My biggest issue is when I have big stresses such as : Leaving the house, Having somebody come over, Waiting for postman with parcel, Waiting for an answer to a question that might define something important etc (like emailing the boss, is my absence gonna get me fired..).. I will have strong urges to use the toilet, even if I don't really need to go (usually the first visit, I do) These urges only go away when I have had the event pass by usually. Did anyone else before going full Celiac diet have this problem? Many thanks!
