  1. Hi guys! I'm new to the site - apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place or something Female, 18, diagnosed about 4 years ago now. I was a completely silent celiac, and while I had problems with other foods, pasta and gluteny foods were pretty much the only thing I trusted to not cause me any symptoms. Obviously I was very wrong, and I've been keeping gluten free ever since! However, a couple months ago I started having some pretty odd bowel movements. (Here comes the tmi stuff, I'm sorry in advance..) At first it was constipation, and when I did poop it was small, loose, floating, greasy, and yellow. I was also having some upper abdominal pain so I thought it was a liver problem and got checked out - doc said my liver felt inflammed but an ultrasound showed nothing was wrong. Then after a while ito became more solid and less greasy again, but the switching from constipation to loose floating and non-floating stools remained. I still experiended a lot of yellowish mucous however. Now, the last few weeks, they'very turned much much paler. Sort of a light beige-grey. The yellow mucous is still present. I've been having intermittent abdominal pain as well. Both near my liver on my upper right abdomen wrapping around a bit to my back, and a little further down on the left side just above my hip bone. I've also had quite a loss of appetite, and I have nausea that comes and goes. Today, it's sort of turned into a pale yellow/grey mush... there is still yellow mucous present. My stomach feels rather sick, but it doesn't feel like a flu or anything like that. I'm not going to the bathroom all that frequently, but again it's either a constipated feeling or an urgent need to go, back and forth (though the stool is always soft). Sorry about the grossness of all this. Basically, I was wondering if it's possible that I haven't been careful enough recently? Even though I never had any symptoms from gluten before, is it possible that I'm being contaminated somehow and it's causingredients all theset symptoms? I've also been incrediblyou fatigued and weak for the last few weeks but I'm not ill in any other way. And i've been drinking plenty of water. I should also mention that my other food problems don't cause this stuff either. The other intolerances cause severe pain that starts in between my lower ribs and then just kind of spreads throughout my whole body, makes me very very weak and lethargic, makes breathing pretty difficult due to pain, causes my whole abdomen to swell, and lasts between 1 hour and 8 hours. (Triggered by any green vegetables, leafy or not, as well as bananas, pineapples, tofu, lentils, and avocado. I'm also a pescatarian) Anyway... thank you for taking the time to read through this, and any advice would be very much appreciated. I'm getting pretty concerned, and, though I haven't checked, I seem to be losing quite a bit of weight. It's just so terrible to feel so weak and sick all the time, every day... I'm glad to be part of the site now, though! Thank you!
