Re: Celiac Disease Just Diagnosed
Just curious. Could someone read my symtoms and tell me if I have Celiac's or not?
I have had ongoing stomach problems for over a month now. I have lost close to 40 pounds and it has left me tired and weak.
I have seen 4 doctors now. Each diagnosed me with something different. My insurance is so picky I can't go see a gastroenterologist unless my doctor refers me. Every doctor I have been to wants to prescribe me this or that medicine and it is not working.
I haven't been able to eat. Its like the food just sits at the top of my stomach and won't go down.
It feels like someone is taking my stomach and uppper intestines above my belly button and twisting them into a pretzel. I have very uncomfortable gnawing pains, they don't hurt but it feels just like knots or gritty feeling.
When my stomach does this, which is pretty much 24/7 I get horrible gas. I am always passing gas or burping up air.
Is it dangerous for me to be losing this much weight so fast?
My husband is so scared that one morning I'm just not going to wake up. I am scared to. I want to lose weight because I am overweight but not this way!!!!
I mean I have eaten just probably this week only 100 calories total in food.
I am always drinking tea, gatorade, water or some kind of juice, usually orange juice.
Also my mouth and the back of my throat always feels thick like my saliva is thick.
