    Could I Have Celiac?ve An Answer?

    Wow, you sound like me at the point I am right now. I am on my way to my surgeons office for the results of an EGD I had done a little over a week ago, so I don't have a lot of time to post much of a reply to you, but i will bookmark this page and try to get with you sometime tomorrow here through the forums. I have many more symptoms than you have explained, but the main general ones are identical and the way I feel is the same...wondering if I will live much longer. I look forward to chatting with you some more about this very soon...In the meantime, I hope you feel better ...at least a little bit.
  2. I am new to the forums here and new to the whole idea that I may have Celiac disease. I have been ill all my life and it started when I was a toddler with severe stomach pain and stomach acid coming up in my mouth. Needless to say..after years of being ill I am now to the point of being disabled and can barely function. There are times in the recent past that I layed down at night to go to sleep and really wondered if I would wake the following morning. I have so many symptoms of this disease that its ridiculous that the doctors didn't check me for Celiac sooner. I was actually the one that discovered the possiblity, which is sad. I will post later with all my symptoms over the years and about what age I was when I first noticed them, in hopes it will get some of my questions answered and maybe help someone else that is like me. I had to blood test done for Celiac, but it came back negative, which is something I sort of expected since I have been ill with this for so long that my body no longer reacts as it should enough to show up on bloodwork. I did get my surgeon to set up an EGD, since I have to have that and the lower scope done on a regular basis, anyway, due to all the trouble I have with my digestive system. Anway, I will post the findings of the biopsies that were taken during my EGD. From what I understand, the surgeon found several bad areas and took a biopsy of each. Tell I have more time to write......may you all be well.
  3. My blood test were negative and I ended up having an EGD a little over a week ago. My appointment to find out the results of that test is later today. I, too, have had the lower scope done and yes, it makes me seriously ill, just like it did to you. I feel for you and hope you get your results soon. By the way, from what I understand, if your blood work came back positive, your a Celiac. You generally don't have to have the biopsy done, unless your blood work comes back negative and they are still pretty certain you have Celiac. I am praying that your test go well for you today and I hope you get some good news from this round of test.
