Microscopic Colitis in Related Issues & Disorders Posted November 20, 2010 · Report to Admin I am fairly new to Celiac (only 3 months ago was diagnosed). I am doing some research as my GI doctor has me scheduled for a Colonoscopy the day before Thanksgiving (next week). My symptoms have changed/worsened since going gluten free on the diet. Added to the "usual" Celiac symptoms, adding extremely elevated liver enzymes, liver (palpated) is enlarged-which is extremely painful, very loose stools and abdominal cramping that varies from "discomfort" to "stabbing and unbearable" feels as if a sword is passing through my intestines. It almost feels like gas pains, but with less severe bloating. I am being tested for AutoImmune Hepatitis and having the Colonoscopy for Microscopic Colitis. Does anyone have any tips on reducing the abdominal pain until next week? Each day it grows worse, to the point that I am scared to eat. Of course, my GI doctor doesn't return my calls, so I am trying to find ways to cope with it until he does.. i just got my results back from my colonoscopy a few weeks ago...i do have microscopic colitis and the biopsy of my duodenum looks "celiac" - i have been gluten-free for 9 years...so either the microscopic colitis is causing the "celiac" look to my intestines or something is going on....i am kind of nervous....dr. prescribed prednisone for 15 days....the first 2 days were great....no d. i actually have not had d since, but the first 2 days were better...not sure why- coincidence? he said i might not see results for 10 days but when the first two were good - it makes me upset! anyone out there that has taken prednisone for inflamation and how long did it take to "work"
