  1. My family doctor had me do a blood test and stool sample. I was told I tested positive for celiac disease. My doctor sent a referral to a gut specialist who immediately sent a note back stating he did not think I have celiac disease. Now because I am not considered urgent I could wait a year for a biopsy. I get bloated to the point I look pregnant, I have missed my period, it took me 3 years to conceive my son and had to take fertility drugs, I am always tired, always feel sick, get cramps, feel nauses, have to unbutton my pants at work after eating because I am so uncomfortable. I do have some good days. I have been sick my entire life and have always been underweight. What do I do? Signs point to celiac but how do I confirm it without a biopsy? I cannot go on like this for another year. Would really appreciate any insight. Thank you.
