Stress On The Body

I think that psychological/emotional stress is the biggest trigger of a flare-up of pain. I have had soooo much stress recently: just transferred to a new university, a kitten who's having seizures, trying to build up my own business, being continually lied to by a loved one...

I feel like jumping off a cliff. I'm just a bundle of nerves. Maybe Prozac can help?

Prozac is a pretty drastic measure.

Exercise is a great one for stress. Try going running after a stressful day even if it is only for 15 mins. Nothing beats stress and anger like pushing your body to the limit. When you get back it is physically impossible not to feel happy due to the endorphins which are released. The other bonus is you will become fit and feel better.

Yes, two of the known triggers are:

1. stress

2. a surgery

With me it was a surgery. I don't know, where i once read the (german) article about these triggers. But that was the reason, why i suggested that i had celiac disease. Because as soon as the anastetic was gone after a tooth surgery i immediately had very severe symptoms. Then a lot of years and a long struggle about what that could be i read this article and then i knew. Well, the second trigger in that article that they mentioned was stress.

Lots of greetings, Stephanie

Stress can cause a reaction with celiac -- I was told that getting stressed is really bad in terms of symptoms. Therefore, I was told to try to stay calm and not get stressed in order to eliminate symptoms faster.

Additionally, stress often triggers celiac in the first place. If you have the gene and have tremendous stress, it's likely to flare up into full-blown celiac.

    • Peter is correct.  You do have a positive so that warrants further investigation.  Here is a link supporting our comments: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-raised-dgp-igg-levels-an-early-sign-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf Does she have celiac disease?  You will never know for sure without an endoscopy.  Even then, there is a chance the biopsies are negative, but keep in mind that she might just be starting to develop celiac disease or that the damage was not captured (the small intestine is the size of a tennis court if spread out).   Personally, I tested negative on all but the DGP IgA, yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage.  The celiac blood tests are good, but they do not catch all celiacs,  some celiacs can even test negative to ALL the blood tests. Consider yourself fortunate that your doctor ordered several of the tests and not just the screening TTG IgA (very good, keeps cost down, but does not catch all).    The DGP is the preferred test in small children.  I do not know why it caught me because I am old,  but it did!   Confusing, isn't it?  I wish there was an easier way to diagnose, but  we have to work with what we have available to us.  
    • Thank you for your reply, though it's not necessarily what I wanted to hear, it is what I was thinking. 
    • you're lucky you dont catch colds. im the opposite i catch everything very easily and get alot sicker than whoever i caught it from and take much longer to get better.
    • Even one positive can be diagnostic. This is one:  Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9. If unsure, a biopsy of the small intestine will provide definite confirmation. There is a control test to validate the other ones, but I don't see it there. What is does is validate the others by checking on the overall antibody levels. But it is to detect possible false negatives. A positive is a positive. I think your daughter has joined our club.
    • My daughter, almost 7 years old, recently had a lot of blood work done, her Dr is out of the office, but another Dr in the practice said everything looked normal. I'm waiting for her Dr to come back and see what she thinks. I'm concerned because there is one abnormal result and I can't find info to tell me if just that one test being abnormal means anything. The reason for the blood work is mainly because of her poor growth, though she does have some other symptoms. IgA 133 mg/dl Reference range 33-200   CRP <2.9  same as reference range   Gliadin Deamidated Peptide IgA .4 Reference range <=14.9   Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9 Reference range <=14.9   TTG IgA .5 Reference range <=14.9   TTG IgG <.8 Reference range <=14.9
