Well, sit down and I'll tell you my little celiac story.
2005- first time I got extremely sick. I'd had IBS for a few years, but I was getting so sick I ended up in the ER every few months. Went to a new GI- blood work came back and showed sensitivity to wheat. Had the upper endoscopy and biopsies-- they were negative. Still suggested GF diet, so i did. For a full year. It was, by far, my sickest year. I was a FREAK about keeping GF. Wouldn't kiss my boyfriend if he had a sandwich. (now husband. Not sure how he didn't run then! lol)
Still being sick got a hida scan, saw a non-functioning GB and got it removed. Doc thought celiac wasn't possible, so I ate gluten again.
Every GI doc I had since then tested my blood and biopsies, probably once a year. All negative. Continued eating gluten.
Got sick again this year. Saw an integrative medicine NP who did more bloodwork. I was positive for the celiac gene (30-40% of the population test positive, but doesnt have it), so they said to eat GF. I did for a few months, still sicker than ever, so I gave up. Saw an allergist. Thought since I am super allergic to grass (and an allergic person in general) it could be cross-contamination with wheat. Did another 3 months GF. Still sick.
So I've been eating whatever recently. Mainly on the IBS friendly diet. But struggling...
I've found the only trigger I can pinpoint is stress. I have my own business, husband is searching for a new job and new career path, i'm at the point where we need to decide if we want to have kids, buy house, etc...
I decided to step back, focus less on food and more on ME. This has made the last few days already better.
Thanks again for the support. You rock.
I'm off to listen to the hypnosis.
