Hello everyone, I'm new to this website but I know that people have surely asked similar things on other pages but I couldn't find any forums with exactly the same thing. I am 21 and about 2 years ago now was when I self-diagnosed myself as celiac/gluten sensitivity. Before that I had been having EXTREME stomach pains in the upper left hand side of my abdomen, that came along with vomiting most of the time and it hurt every time I ate for days after that. I had two friends at the time with diagnosed celiac and they seemed to have had the same pains as me. I was going to do the elimination diet at the time but felt so much better after a month that I didn't try to eat gluten and haven't since. I have had the stomach pains a few times since then (3 time in 2 years, and before I was getting them at least every month or so). Each time I had these stomach pains there seems to be an explanation that included gluten. Well 4 days ago I had a reaction and I can't think of anything that I ate that could've possibly had gluten in it (I only ate at home). My question is, can people who have been through similar things give me some advice? What should I do? Should I try to go to the GI and get advice? I've been thinking that I should try to eat gluten for a day and see if I get that stomach pain? Does that stomach pain sound familiar? I guess I also hate the idea of having to always be a nuisance, I just picture myself on my honeymoon or a nice relaxing vacation having to ask for the staff to make me something gluten free and I guess I kind of hope that I misdiagnosed myself.. Is there anyone on here/anyone who knows someone that this has happened to?
I've had celiac for about 3 years and i have a constant unsettled stomach. When i wasnt diagnosed i was eating gluten obviously because i had no idea, i was 15 at the time but then i got diagnosed and stopped completely. For the first two weeks my stomach was really normal you know? like no stomach aches no random trips to the toilet and no i wasnt eating anything different i was eating everything gluten free nothing out of the ordinary and nothing in specific. After that two weeks my stomach just went down hill like i wasnt eating gluten anymore but i was. Now everyone tells me it takes awhile for your stomach to heal, but im a 18 year old kid and i have to plan my life on how my stomach is feeling. I could eat the same food one night and have a good stomach the next but then eat the same thing then be grounded because i'll have stomach aches and have to constantly go toilet. To put it simply sometimes i get diarrhea for no reason at all. Everyone says maybe i'm sensitive to other foods and should keep a diary but i eat the same food and feel good then the next day if i eat the same food ill get diarrhea or something or an unsettled, uneasy stomach. Sorry for the lengthy post, but please this is ruining my life. I dont care if i have to occasionally watch my friends eat at restaurants while drooling but when i get celiac i was under the impression that when you eat gluten free you will have regular stool and normal bowel movements..... and notice when your about to need to go toilet. This is kind of ruining my life, no doctors can help and yes i've been to dietitians. I would really much appreciate a reply because i don't know what to do. BTW: IBS medicines don't work, i have tried celiac enzymes, no improvement.
Around about now ive had cealiac for about two years, and its been generally pretty bad. Ive stuck to a gluten free diet for abou the whole two years and ive noticed not much of a change in my stomach pattens. I was diagnosed after i got cealiac a few months later. I drank some mass gainer protein then i got it. I've eliminated all the gluten out of my diet but i still get these stomach aches, it never gets much better.
