I've been having some symptoms and the dr. hasnt found an answer yet so I'm hoping for some insight. I had a baby 7 months ago and since then my body has been out of whack. Ive had headaches, blurry vision, stomach cramps, blood when I went to the bathroom etc. People told me they could all be symptoms of nursing but I have stopped nursing and all the symptoms continued. My gastro did a colonoscopy because he was concerned about the bleeding but that came up normal. Then I started to keep a food log because it felt that every time i had the cramps and GI symptoms my body was trying to get rid of poison. I soon realized every stomach ache was preceded by a bowl of noodles. I basically cut out noodles for a few days and the stomach problems stopped. One day I was hungry and had a bowl and my eyes all of a sudden got blurry. So I realized all the issues were related to pasta. After doing research I saw that I pretty much had every symptom of celiac disease (even that it comes out in some people after pregnancy) the only problem is I just took the blood test and all the results were totally normal. When I eat gluten I feel so sick I have no energy, I feel like I have a hangover the next morning bc Im so sick to my stomach. Without gluten I feel clear headed and the debilitating stomach issues have stopped. Should I just follow a gluten free diet or could there be something else causing my strange symptoms?

  • Were you following the celiac diet when you had your blood work done? Apparently, if you follow the diet then the antibodies don't show up in the blood work. If the diet makes you feel better, then you probably should follow it.
