Agree and don't stop the wheat until you are tested like one of the ladies said.

The allergist can determine if in fact you are allergic to gluten/wheat - that's how I found out that I am, among other things! So sorry you are experiencing those symptoms. I've had "environmental" allergies for years but never knew that I was allergic to food until I was tested.

Don't stop believin'

You can get a blood test from the family doctor. You can't get a reading if you have stopped eating the wheat however, so be sure to get tested first. I went to a gastroenterologist after I had the diagnosis of Celiac's and got lots of information from that doctor. Good luck emoticon emoticon

Thanking God everyday!

For the past six months I have had numerous "allergies". Nasal congestion, post nasal drip, hacking cough, weight gain, bloated, etc. In addition, I began to experience acid reflux immediately after I ate anything. The doctor says it's an allergy; however, the allergy has never been determined. After reading several articles, some of these symptoms are related to gluten sensitivity.

I have an appointment with an allergist in January. Can allergists determine if you have a gluten sensitivity? Can they perform the blood test for celiac or do I need to go to my family doctor?

This is new to me. I am tired of these symptoms and desperately want to find the cause. If anyone has experienced these symptoms and determined it was gluten sensitivity, please let me know. Thanks....Susan
