mr120 replied to mr120's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsI 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
mr120 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHi 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!
