For a few years now I have known that I have had a very sensitive stomach. I had never brought it up to my doctor, but now that I am going away to college next year I feel that I need an answer to my issue. Most of the time when I go out to eat at a restaurant, I end up with a horrible stomach ache. I feel fine at first but then about 20-30 minutes later I suddenly have horrible pains and need to go to the bathroom asap. I usually have diarrhea and end up in the bathroom for a quite a while. I normally don't get these stomach aches when I eat at home though, but that might be because I eat very plain foods when I'm at home, but when I go out, I don't exactly always know what's in my food. I have been doing some research on the computer and saw some other similarities between me and the symptoms of celiac. I'm currently 18 years old and first got my period when I was about 13. It is very irregular, for instance, the last time I got it was in June and it is currently November. Also, i have very itchy skin and have eczema, and I have a little bit of anxiety. And lastly, I read a few articles that say there might be a link between celiac disease and kidney stones. This past June I ended up in the emergency room because I had my first (and hopefully only) kidney stone. Please please please someone let me know what you think of my symptoms.

Re: celiac?

Celiac has 300 possible symptoms. I suggest you ask your doctor to run a full Celiac panel. Depending on your blood tests, he may then need to do an Endoscopy. FYI, you have to keep eating gluten until all your testing is complete.
