I first went to the doctor after having severe diarrhea and stomach pain. The doctor said I had a gastrointestinal infection from the water. After five days of antibodies I was getting worse. I went and saw another doctor and was now starting to have yellow skin and urinating different color. Almost a bluish type color. The doctor said that I had hepatitis. I took a exam for Hep B and it came out negative. And I had been vaccinated for Hep A in the past ten years. I started a diet of no meats or dairy products. And a lot of rest. After a month of this, I still have stomach pains. The yellow skin has gone away. I did a ultrasound on the liver and gall bladder and it looks fine. I did a blood test on the liver and it came out fine also. I know have constant red eye. The doctor says they want to now do a scope in my intestines.

  • I too had severe stomach pain and diarrhea. I was wrongly diagnosed several times with everything from diverticulitis to Chron's disease. Now I have the correct diagnosis. It is CFS. All people with CFS have an allergy to wheat and possibly gluten. Hence, Celiac Disease.The best advice I can give is to find a local doctor or Naturopath who specializes in NAET or Bioset therapy. I am going for my third treatment this am and I cannot wait!. It really does work.Some people only have a few symptoms and others don't realize that some of the things happening to them are actually "symptoms" also as we are all very good at "chalking symptoms up to something else"Best of luck to you...mommy cat

  • If you are wondering if gluten is an issue for you, you can order a test through www.enterolab.com. I am not employed by enterolab, but I have been Dx gluten sensitive since Oct '06. You can be gluten sensitive and not have Celiac's Disease. Gluten sensitivity shows up as other autoimmune diseases and many neurological ones too. 12% of people who are gluten sensitive end up with Celiac disease, the other 87% end up with other auto-immune illnesses and neurological diseases. It is well worth the test especially since the current testing for celiac disease has a false negtative. My symptoms are hypothyroidism, dystonia, osteoporosis, muscle spasms and severe cramping, balance issues, impaired gait, a constant tremor above my left eye, edema, skin rashes, GERD, abdominal pain on the lower right side, daily headaches, left ear pain, a waffling sound in my ears when I walked around, tingling in my legs in the evening and rosacea. Nearly all of these have disappeared by adhearing to a strict gluten free diet. I am still on thyroid medication but it has been cut in half and is scheduled to be cut in half again as thyroid disease is directly associated with gluten sensitivity. My osteoporosis is improving. A simple home test for gluten sensitivity can be done by anyone. It takes two weeks. For two weeks only eat foods in the following categories, fresh fruit, fresh veggies, meat, fish, poultry, rice (not a mix) and for salad dressing use oil and lemon juice. You can cook the fruits and veggies if you want to. But generally eat everything from fresh food categories. The meat fish and poultry should not be in any prepared sauces. Be sure to drink a min of 60 oz of water a day. If you are wondering if a certain food is ok to eat,... if it falls into one of the above groups, you're fine. If not, hold off for the two weeks. You will know by then if gluten is an issue for you. If you are feeling much better, add dairy to your diet and follow as gluten free with dairy for another week. See if dairy makes you feel better or worse than without dairy. Quite often dairty and gluten go together as food sensitivies. My guess is that if you have neurological and auto-immune illnesses you will feel much better on a gluten free diet. Here's to good health!L

When you first went to the doc, did they do a stool exam to determine the cause of your diarrhea? Or did they just prescribe antibiotics? What antibiotic did you take and are you taking or were you taking any other medications? Where are your stomach pains? Are they upper epigastric or lower abdominal? In the center of your navel or are they worse on one side? Do you still have diarrhea or loose stools? DOM
