I don't think antihistamines would affect the test at all. I take an antihistamine daily as well for horrendous allergies.

You are not alone. I am going through the exact same thing right now. I thought it was gone but unfortunately I ate something else that has triggered it again. After reading another article on here I am starting to think it is rice...yet one more thing to eliminate from my diet, have already given up dairy and corn, now rice. I have super high anxiety. Doesn't matter who it is or what is said I am over emotional and really struggle in day to day functions even down to just folding a basket of laundry. I do have Xanax but that doesn't even help anymore. I have actually stopped taking it because of that. Only thing that helps is time, rest and drink plenty of water. The rest helps me more because then I get to be still and not think about anything. Hard to function when you have what feels like 15 people in your head at one time talking to you but it is only your thoughts rushing through your mind.
I truly hope you feel better soon. Just be cautious out there. Even down to making sure your kitchen is clean and that all of your utensils, plates, pans, etc. are washed extremely well as sometimes I feel like this is where some of my problem comes in at but I haven't figured all of that out yet.
He may need to make a diet change for his diverticulitis. But you can't diagnose Celiac that way. If it were me, I would try another doctor. Is one doesn't sound very good.
