  1. Well, day 3 back on the G and I'm starting to feel it again. Chest pain, shoulder/back/neck pain, tight esophagus, uneasy stomach. Thankfully, again, all quite mild, but definitely there. I had actually gained a couple pounds! I'm sure they will go away, but it was nice just to see the needle go up. And to be honest I'm a little relieved that I could be on to something. Who knows, maybe in the long run, if I do have a gluten issue, it'll encourage me to eat healthier!
  2. Thanks to you both! I bit the bullet and had stir fry with soy sauce and a beer tonight. Probably should still take it easy on the beer, but wow, I am going to miss it if I have celiac disease! I live in Grand Rapids, MI - aka Beer City USA, this will be a cruel, cruel torture for me! Bartfull, my wife has thankfully been more understanding in the last couple days - I still don't think she seriously believes I have a gluten problem (and for all I know, maybe I don't, that remains to be seen), but she's at least humoring me and being more patient. She really is a wonderful mate, I do
  3. Thanks again for the advice Cheryl. I just called the GI specialist's office and put myself on their short call/cancellation list, to hopefully get in sooner. The internist at a clinic I work in has kind of taken over my case from my PCP, so I'm going to talk to her tomorrow at work and try to get the blood tests ordered. Hopefully being off gluten for 5-6 days won't skew my test results, even if I have to wait a week with normal diet before having the test, that would be ok, since I'll probably have to go back on for the biopsy as well. Every time I go back to a normal diet, within a
  4. Thanks cyclinglady, I think you replied to me on the healingwell forum too? I really would prefer to get tested and diagnosed, I'm just concerned that the medical "runaround" I'm going to get will be ridiculous to the point of not being worth it. Just getting in to see a specialist is almost comically difficult - thank God I don't have something life threatening, I would probably die before seeing a doctor! Definitely going to push for things to be done SOON. I can handle being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I'm sure it won't always be fun, or easy, but at least I'll know what's going on a
  5. Thanks to you both! I appreciate the input. Mommida, I've been tested for H. Pylori, which was negative, and had an upper GI series (barium swallow), which confirmed no abnormalities of the esophagus or stomach lining- not sure if it picks up Barrett's though. Cheryl, thanks for the advice. My PCP is a wonderful guy, but I fear he just has no knowledge of celiac and if I'm going to get tested, I want to make sure I'm getting the right ones! Just like what you described, I hear a lot of people say they get the tests done, but for whatever reason they're not reliable or a false nega
  6. Hello all, I'm brand new here, excited to hopefully find some answers about the nightmare I've been having for the last few months. I'm going to give my story, it's a long one so I apologize for that. Any thoughts and help would be so appreciated! I'm a 29 yo male, dentist by trade and in general a very normal, healthy, and happy person. 3 months ago I started having a strange feeling in my chest after dinner each night - not painful at first, nor nauseating, just a very uneasy feeling. I then started having mild shooting pains in my chest, lightheadedness, and what felt like he
