  1. Hi Guys, I just thought of giving update on my case. I finally got my EGD done and unfortunately, the conclusion is I have Celiac. There was Villus atrophy and presence of Inflammatory Cells, looks like the atrophy of Villi isn't that worse yet, but of course, I need to get on strict gluten...
  2. My pain is exactly what you described. In fact, when the Physio tried Taping my knee, they used to do a C tape right on that spot, to provide better knee tracking. So yea, my pain point is right at the knee cap (outer side of both knees) and at times, it's migratory. I have also experienced some...
  3. Guys, A few other questions: 1) How long does it take to get some relief from Pain after being gluten free? I am sure it varies for everyone, but in my case, it's been 2 weeks since i have totally avoided gluten but i don't feel any better. In Fact, it's so weird that last night my right...
  4. Hi Emma, Sorry for not being clear, but I was tested for RA factor , ANA, Iron Panel and pretty much every possible blood test that was related to Rheumatology or Deficiencies. My Iron and calcium results were normal however, Vitamin D and B12 were deficient, so been taking supplements...
  5. Hi Emma, The ortho doctor didn't give a conclusive diagnosis, but did rule out PFS based off on the history I had provided, as well, after examination of the knee. He referred me to a Rheumat and he ruled out any Musculoskeletal issues, neither did the blood work insinuate anything related to...
  6. Hi, I think that probably is the cause for my Low Vitamin D and B12 levels. My vitamin D was as low as 16, and after supplements it was 43 quite recently. I still take Calciferol orally once a week(60000IU) to maintain the levels. My B12 levels was 282 and after taking B12 capsules alternate...
  7. Thanks for your suggestions, will try to inculcate as much as I can, not that I have another option, but anything to get rid of the pain. Appreciate your time
  8. I think I'll get back to my doctor to reconsider referring to a GI. Meanwhile, will stick to Total gluten free diet, so the pain can be managed better.
  9. This link is so helpful Karen, thanks much
  10. Thanks Karen. I agree, I need to take it more seriously and probably look for a doctor who would consider this seriously. Could you refer me to a link or a starters guide for Gluten Free diet. I have found some forums online but a lot suggest even using Gluten free soaps, shampoos, etc. So I am not...
  11. Hi, Thanks for the inputs. Did you get a biopsy done to confirm celiac? I haven't got the Biopsy done yet however, blood tests do suggest Gluten Intolerance. In your experience, do you recommend not eating out at all. or only eat out where it's certain the food isn't contaminated? I haven't...
  12. The doctor recommended to try Gluten free diet first, since my symptoms didn't indicate Intestinal issues, which I still don't have. So for now, i haven't been referred to a GI for biopsy. Should I consider it? Is there a difference between knee pain from Gluten as opposed to mechanical issues...
  13. Hello Everyone, I'd like to have your inputs and thoughts on my case in here. I started feeling knee pain all of a sudden almost 2 years ago. I don't remember of any trauma or injury happening, except for the fact that I was doing treadmill on a daily basis( Speed of 2.5 to 3 and incline of...
