I MIGHT know what's wrong with my stomach
Monday, July 16, 2012
well I have been dealing with stomach issues for over a month now and its getting really tiring. I'm not eating much and when I do eat I get stomach pains and very gassy and bloated.
well while waiting for the next test I have to do, an upper GI series, I decided to do a little test of my own. I have been eating gluten free for over a day now. I think it's making a difference, I have less pain and less gassy bloated feelings. actually the pain is almost gone completely lol.
So I called my doctor and spoke to his nurse. I told her my theory and that there is a improvement after only 24 hours, obviously I'm still not back to normal. anyway, I think it's celiac disease, or might be lol. Obviously it's just a theory and could be quite wrong but as the first step is a blood test which is 90% accurate I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.
I'm now just waiting for the nurse to talk to my doctor and then call me back, if he agrees to the blood test I don't even have to go in and see him until after the results are in.
I know if it is celiac it's going to be a challenge changing my diet forever but at this point I don't care I just don't want to feel crappy anymore!!! and if it IS celiac then I'll know what to do to fix it lol. I'm actually kinda hoping it is just so that I finally know what's wrong!
I'll update in a new blog whatever happens ^_^
