Hi All, I’m new to this whole world of celiac and wondered if you could give me your opinions please?! I have been having on off stomach pains for about the last 5 months. They started to happen once every couple of weeks, then once a week and now literally every other day, sometimes every day. It’s quite a crippling pain that literally bends me over double and nothing gives me any relief. It usually happens within about an hour of eating, but not every time I eat. Along with this I have been constipated for a while and in the last 2-3 weeks on off had a feeling of a big lump in my throat when I try to swallow (I actually thought I was getting tonsillitis until it kept happening and then just goes away!). My stomach is bloated every night also. I am always quite tired, but just put this down to the fact that I find it quite hard to switch off at night and actually get to bed, so don’t get that much sleep, but always feel shattered in the mornings. Anyway, initially they it was thought I had a stomach ulcer (I only told them about the stomach pains as I didn’t think any of the other symptoms were even really symptoms I guess!). They gave me antacid medication, which did nothing. Saw a different doc and told her my other symptoms too and she said it sounds like I could be celiac. This was never even on my radar, so I was really surprised! Everyone I know who’s had it always has diarreah and has lost weight. I’ve not done either and I would have thought my stomach would hurt every time I ate gluten, not just some of the time? Has anyone had intermittent stomach pain and ended up being celiac? I’m waiting on my blood tests, which should be back at the end of the week. TIA x
My Dr kept saying there was no check. So I decided to try gluten-free. Then they decided to do test and came back negative.i already have severe ibs swinging between diahrea for months as soon as eaten to not going 10 days, went lactose intolerant. I suddenly lost weight wearing children's clothes so was told to eat dairy. Within 2 year I gained 5 stone. Still struggling with health more issues adding I had underachieve thyroid. I been offered colostomy over 10 yr ago due to period bleeding from back but refused. Anyway rushed in hospital after not going 10 days admitted told had slow bowel n sent home after 2 days. Now struggling to pass last few month won't flush it smells stale it's about 10" circumference sometimes always long like snake hurts like **** like hedgehog with an attitude. I was recently told I'm calcium vitamin d defiecency and health now rapidly down hill. Lots other issues. Started aged 22 now I'm 52. Need answers. Some this is not in right lines but I have fibromyalgia n CFS plus facial pains due to jaw?? I have new Dr now should I ask for test ...oh and was healthy lost the 5 stone now gaining it back and once to twice day started eating cornflakes with weetabix plus toast.... sometimes my poop is long and thin too simple by it curls round like snake. Have acid reflux too. I also suffered syncope whilst on toilet many times in one sitting...
Luvs2read posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseHelp! Diagnosed by biopsy in July and bloodwork. Thought I had ulcers and constipation. Anyway I have been gluten free obsessively but am still very constipated and in pain. I have subtotal villous blunting and intraepithelial lymphocytes. I got 83 on my tTG bloodwork. I am desperate to go to bathroom and went to health food store. The owner suggested a herbal detox wild rose. I did take last night but am a little afraid. Nothing happened anyway as far as constipation. I am wondering if I am too early in healing to do this herbal detox? Any advice from other celiac with constipation? Wonder if I might have thyroid issue too. Thanks for any advise.
