  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Abdominal Tension

    I sort of have the same feeling... mine is more like a rock in my abdomen. Sometimes it feels like there is a rock going through my intestines... weird I know...
  3. O.K. I just had the scopes done and will get the results on June 6th. I know there has to be something going on cause I feel so much better off breads (big weakness) and pastas. What blood tests should I definately have done? If I can do it through a blood test that would be so much better than having to go to the allergist for the test where they stick you. I know I will react and since I work out in the public... I really don't want to have welts on my back. Thanks for your help and advice.
  4. B12 Test

    Are you thinking of the Methamalonic Acid test?
  5. Celiac Stomach?

    Oh WOW that could have been me as a kid, and definately looks like my son. After I have my followup with the GE I told hubby and son this was going to be a drastic change and that there would be huge changes in diet.
  6. Weight Gain? And Celiac?

    forgot to add one thing... my teeth are horrible! I have had many dental procedures done over the past 10 years, but nothing has helped... still all bad.
  7. Wow, this is very interesting... I have no clue as to heritage... I am adopted. However... I have an Irish temter, Czechoslovakian stubbornness. I have a roundish face, blue eyes, when I bleach my hair it has a red cast to it, so there is lots of natural red in it... I haven't a clue as to what my "natural color" is anymore... lol. I am short, and have stumpy legs, toes and fingers. My eyes also have a slight... very slight almond shape to them also.
  8. Celiac Stomach?

    hmm, is it lower abdomen as in below the waist line or the whole abdomen?
  9. O.K. I am puzzled... I know that there is "usually" weight loss with celiac disease, but is it possible to gain weight? The GE thinks it might be celiac disease, but I have never read anything about weight gain. I had a gastro bypas about 14 years ago and have since been dx with a vitamin E and b12 defficency. I have not had any other problems from the gastric bp, but have gone up and down in weight... could this be tied to celiac disease? I just had a EGd and colonoscopy done last week so I will have the results on the 6th of june. In the mean time I am doing a bunch of research. The only other consistent things that I have had is terrible migraines. I have tried vegetarian diets in the past, and going off all breads, but never watched gluten very closely. thanks for the advice...
