I am a 17 year old girl, am allergic to milk protein and am completely dairy free. everyday about an hour after i get up i start experiencing these symptoms (this has been going on for a month and every couple days for a month befor that), they don't let up at all for at least an hour or two sometimes three, i am a good student but i can't focus lately because i am so distracted. later in the day my symptoms show up periodically usually dully in the background with occasional bursts of discomfort, like after dinner or a snack...here are the big ones...
-LOUD stomach noises
-abdominal cramping/sharp pains/ache
-loss of appetite
-feeling oddly faint
-unexplained shortness of breath
-i am tired all the time
-also during the first 24 hours of my period i have the most unbearable cramps
about nine months ago i went to the doctor, miserable from constant digestive problems, suspecting a milk allergy and wondering about celiac...my mother felt the same way and the doctor seemed to be on board, they ran some blood tests (i wish i had been more attentive to what ones, i know for sure they did a 21 common food allergy one) i was positive for milk protein allergy and vitamin D and calcium deficient and that is all the info i got from her. After a few months of total relief (and eliminating dairy) i was thrilled then but now the terrible tummy troubles are back and i just want to get better this time. The last doctor i saw was not very good at communicating and i don't feel like she listened well...
does anyone else think it could be celiac or gluten intolerance (because of the allergy test i already had i doubt a wheat allergy)? should i find another doctor? a specialist? get more tests? any advice?
it's much appreciated!
