Ya know...I may get in trouble here for this but that is one of the rudest comments that I have ever read on here. Glad that you don't have celiac but the rest of us here do. I am currently glutened and feeling like crap so nice way to rub it in.....good going!!

You know, Mo....I sort of thought that at first, too.

But then I thought....We always want to know what the results are with the people we help on here....maybe he/she just thought we would like to know that. And, who among us wouldn't like to not have Celiac?

Of course, Celiac is a definitive answer for why someone feels ill. Now this poor person has no idea why he is having the issues he has. Maybe he is NCGI? Maybe he has a parasitic infection? Maybe cancer? Maybe Chrohn's? Worse things than Celiac.

So to Razzle51 - I'm sorry that the doctors have not found out what is causing your medical issues. I hope they continue to search for the problem and find a good solution for you and you return to good health soon.

Congratulations! :) I hope you figure out soon, and consider non-celiac gluten sensitivity if you continue to have problems.

I'm not sure what to say exactly. There is nothing quite like being deathly ill and having all the tests say you are in perfect health. What tests did they do precisely?

I am delighted for you. Be sure to hang around and ask questions if you think gluten-free might help. I have a diagnosis of NCGI and feel way better on a gluten-free diet. I hope you get to the bottom of things.

Good luck

Yeah, I was actually happy to be diagnosed with Celiac because I at least knew what the problem was FINALLY after 10+ years of suffering and could get on the track of feeling better. Sorry you don't have the answer yet.

well, I was going to say pretty much what Karen said, so I'll just say

"what karen said"

and since I went most of my life not knowing why I felt so bad, had horrible symptoms progress in the last 10 years and pretty much was ready to die, I am one of the few people who said :

"I have Celiac! Hot damn! whoohoo!"

because I knew I had an answer and I could get well.

And, I have to add this cautionary note: sometimes, despite the negative testing results, if it walks like a duck and acts like a duck.....

(my celiac blood panel was negative and that set me up for 2 more years of living hell)

It may not be celiac, but the gluten intolerance spectrum is pretty wide.

That is sort of why I asked what tests were done. Sometimes a duck is a duck is a duck. I don't care if the tests tell you a duck isn't a duck, if a duck is staring you in the eyes, it doesn't matter what a piece of paper says. You would be a moron to say, hey, that ain't no duck!

ETA: Also, once I got my head out of my ever too ample backside, I was thrilled to have an answer. I was thrilled to not have to be on a half dozen drugs with 4 dozen side effects worse than how sick I already was. All I had to do was stop eating gluten. Simple. (Bwahahaha!)

I was relieved to find I had celiac. I liked having an explanation for 30 years of fatigue and a way out. Yeah, I would have been glad if I didn't have to follow the diet, but I would be back to square one of what to do next. I just hope that you Razzle51 will find the keys to your health struggle and be able to do something about it.

I think I was more scared of getting a negative/borderline diagnosis because theres nothing worse than not knowing for sure, especially with all these false negatives people get which I keep reading about. At least with a dx of celiac or if you've worked out you're a NCGI then you've got something you can deal with.

I'm still new to all this but hope you find out whats causing your symptoms Razzle...may even be worth going gluten free for a while to see if things improve or try an elimination diet (I'm sure you"ll find loads of info on here on how to go about it).

    • This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%. I had a skin problem, possibly DH, which got better when I gave up gluten, improved further when I gave up processed foods but it wasn't until I stopped eating dry beans that I stopped getting any flares. I am also sensitive to egg though (although that does something different to my skin) so I'm a bit a skin-reactive person. Could be worth cutting it out just to see if that helps?
    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. If I ever get glutened by something then I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
