  1. I am going to a follow up appointment on Thursday, May 10th. As of now I have no idea what it could be that is causing it. I am grateful that it is not Celiac as i was scared id have to change my life style and didn't know how i'd do that. I will just run with the gastritis, but not sure how they determine the severity. And look forward to get my gallbladder out.
  2. That's totally fine. I enjoy speaking to all of you. I am majoring in Biology, emphasis on biomedical. So pre-med. I decides that major before even attending because I want to be an OB/GYN but I didn' take a whole lot of major classes until this school year tho. My freshmen year I kept it open to most of my generals but added classes I was also interested in so art or sociology to see if I wanted to pick up a minor or double major. I did take spanish for the first two semesters as well. What is your junior thinking? Yes, so I apologize, I didn't specify. Said normal small bowel, and negative for H. Pylori. Said was viewed by pathologist. And said my tissue showed norma, so no cancer or celiac sprue. That my large colon also looks well. Idk tho. Gastritis? Like all of this pain for a stomach acid problem? I still have to get my gallbladder removed as well. So maybe that will help. Idk.
  3. Ok everyone. I got my lab results back from my upper endoscopy and colonoscopy and they said its gastritis. GASTRITIS? if all of this is due to needed tums, I will be mad. I don't Know what to do. I have a follow up appointment on may 10th. So, ill update when I come back. Anyone get this diagnosis? I guess if it says no celiac then I for sure dont have it?
  4. Hey, is it possible to have moments where you feel great? Like usually I feel extremely terrible but this whole week if been good. No migraines, not dizzy, not fatigued. Like almost as if my symptoms have vanished

  6. Thank you very much. I feel very hopeful for the future, and pray as bad as this may sound that I do just end up having celiac so I can feel better. I don' want to get this upper endoscopy and be told there nothing wrong. I legitimatly think I'll go crazy.
  7. Are there any other signs I'm lacking magnesium?
  8. This has been the best responses I have ever received so far. I appreciate this very much. I am 19, and in college currently. Which this has put a toll on my school work, and I'd really like this to be solved so I can improve my grades, especially next year as I'll be a junior. I was not aware that any positive is a positive, so I'm confused as to why my doctor disregarded the results. Anyway, if you want, I can come back to this thread and let you both know my results from my upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. T-minus 20 days.
  9. Hey, this is my first post. I got a celiac panel done a while ago, here are my results: Gliadin igA 12.0 standard range: 0.00-<7.0 Gliadin igG 0.8 standard range: 0.00-<7.0 TT igG AB <0.6 standard range: 0.00-<7.0 TT IGA AB 0.6 standard range: 0.00-<7.0 So everything is within range except the first one. I'm confused. My doctor said I likely don't have it due to everything else being fine, but why would I have such a high value? This was in December of 2017. Right after that since I was having lots of abdominal pain, I was ultrasound since my live was fine and everything was coming back fine. They found stones and said its my gall bladder. So I have that scheduled to remove... Well I started having worse symptoms after January of 2018. Since July of 2017 I was having abdominal pain and really loose stools 5 times a day. Told I have IBS. Well from January 2018 - now I've had loss of appetite, migraines, low grade fever, abdominal pain, fluctuations between constipation and loose stools, fatigue even after getting lots of sleep, Nassau, and dizziness. I was anemic for years but as of early march I am now at 12.1 and the standard range is above 12.0. So while not super high, its there. I apologize for such a long message, but I'm so tired of this feeling. Tired of being told idk what's wrong. You probably just have IBS. I have an upper endoscopy and colonscopy scheduled for April 16. So while thats a little under a month, I am done waiting. They will biospy my stomach for h pylori, chrons, and celiac, but since my doctor said he doubt a I have celiac I'm scared the GI will fins nothing wrong with me and I'll be back at square one suffering while no one knows what's wrong with me. Today I told a friend I felt better then I've had in a while and she goes " do you think it was all in your head?"..... This is what I can't continue to face.
