I have an 8 yr old boy who has been sick for about 5 yrs now.. lost lots of weight and has all sorts of tests... He complains of a bad back and tummy aches and thrashes around until he either throws up or goes to sleep... Once he has been sick he goes back to sleep and wakes up is sick and sleeps, continues this pattern for about 2 days ... He has been in and had biopsys and blood tests and it shows he has coeliac disease.. so we changed his diet and still he is sick...

He also has bad eyes had 2 operations already to remove scarring off his cornea and to inject steriods directly into the eye lid as they have cobbled stone effects... Now he has massive infection and has lost sight in his right eye and is having antibiotic drops...

But he is still sick and losing weight, is there something they are missing?
Help please
