been seeing different doctors for a couple of months now. for some reason every few weeks I get these flare ups I guess you would say. Burning my stomach feels like somone punched it or like I ripped a scab off inside. Docs wants to give me some anti depressants. Others tell me to eat more yogurt. could this possibly be stomach ulcers? They wanted to do a Scan with contrast but I canceled because I didn't want to drink it i was scared it would make me sick. I don't want to go to anymore doctors and I don't want another endoscopy. i get ulcers on my mouth every few weeks too so maybe my stomach is effected also? i am completely gluten free I try to be anyway, I live with roommates who do eat gluten sandwiches and we do share the same plates but I do wash with bleach before using. I did get fries a few weeks ago from bojangles and found some chicken crumbs in there. I already eaten one but threw the rest away. ( bojangles is a fried chicken place but they told me they cook their fries separately) Never going there again. I irrate my roommates with not being able to eat out and everything hurting me. Not really sure what else to do really. Is there a way for me to self diagnose ulcers if that's what it is? I use to think it was endometriosis, but still not totally sure. oh and I also take a lot of Advil...trying to stop because I heard they can cause ulcer and stomach problems.
Has anyone else wondered if they are prone to corneal ulcers due to the autoimmune response to gluten? I try to stay on a gluten-free diet but am having crazy symptoms still when I eat certain foods. I literally have had a few ulcers in the past from contacts but since going gluten-free, I get them every couple weeks. I've tried four brands of the most breathable contacts and nothing helps? Could this be because I'm getting cross contaminated somewhere in my diet?
