I had negative blood test for celiac in the past two weeks. I've had an abdominal scan, a gall bladder function test, and now a CT scan. All are "normal"....
But I know I have celiacs disease. I have an appt for an upper and lower GI scheduled in 2 weeks... and I'm waiting on my CT results.
Initially my Dr wouldn't run a celiac test. I went off gluten for 2 months while we did other testing - anytime I had any.... I was SUPER bloated, cramping... so sick. I FINALLY get the blood test - and it's negative (?) So I have 2 bites of bread last night and almost went to the ER - the pain was so bad. From initial bloating - to left side cramps that about make me pass out.
Will they be able to see anything in my CT scan? This is insane.
the symptoms for gluten intolerance and celiacs are the same, the only difference is the long term damage gluten does if you are celiacs ,as gluten intolerence is a kind of alergy there are no end to the type of symptoms it causes
I know you said all of the symptoms are the same - does that also mean your body lacking the ability to absorb vitamins? The spooned fingernails, the muscle cramping of legs, feet, etc? It seems to me the rashes and initial "reactions" might be the same, but the longer effects from true celiacs would show in a slightly different manner.
