What I Don't Understand in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac Disease Posted May 16, 2007 · Report to Admin I was told I had Celiac in 2005 by a blood test. I went on the diet, found this board ...just read mostly cause I don't have all the trouble most of you do so I just don't feel like part of the group. If I eat wheat by accident I don't even know it cause I don't have any side affects. The only reason they even tested me was I have arthritis bad and they could not find out why it was staying so inflamed and ran a lot of test on me. With me, dairy hurts me more then gluten and all it does is gives me bad stomach pains. I would have to say my mom had Celiac Disease from what I read but they never diagnosed it as that and only said she had allergies to wheat. She died never knowing what she had. I took care of her and know what she went through...a lot of what I read here in the board. So here I am thinking I must have it since mama did and the blood test said so...right? Don't get me wrong, I don't want more then I have right now but wonder if I was missed diagnosed. My arthritis is still bad and inflamed and they can't find anything to help me with the pain so I am now crippled with it. Is there anyone else like me here?
