So this morning i got a blood test done for coeliac disease, my new doctor suggested the test because i have had nausea, abdominal discomfort, random abdominal pains (usually on the left), constipation, diarrhea and stuff for about 2 months now. Some symptoms are fairly constant, but often i seem to have periods throughout the day where i feel pretty good.
I have had other symptoms, such as random burning sensations in my stomach and sometimes in lower abdomen, lots of loud gurgling sounds in abdomen particularly at night, constan burping through out the day, especially after earing, i believe i have experienced some mild acid reflux (without the chest pain) at one point i had some muscle pains.
Anyway i also have a family history of the disease, my nan, Aunty and my cousin have coeliac, but surely that doesnt increase my chances because my mother and father dont have it. I did notice last night i was hungrier than usual (Probably because i was happy that the new doctor i saw actually assessed me properly and gave me forms for multiple tests instead of sending me home saying its all anxiety like every other doctor did) and i decided to eat a decent amount of dinner, and we happened to have pasta for dinner which i believe contains gluten, and this morning i felt okay waking up but then i got sharp pains in my abdomen, mostly on the left, they did die down after about half an hour, and were completely gone in an hour, but i rarely experience any form of pain other than period pain, so these pains scared me even though they werent extreme and stuff. I still had nausea and abdominal discomfort and burping of course. I have lost weight, but i believe that would be due to the fact i have eaten less due to my fear of vomiting and a couple weeks ago i woke up feeling horrible with zero appetite (ALso happened to be the morning after a large meal of pasta for dinner) and i didnt eat for the whole week and lost about 4 kilos. Since then i only managed to gain a kilo of it back, but my weight is up and down, i lose a kilo and gain a kilo so its kind of stable depending on how i eat.
Soooooooo what do you think my chances of having coeliac are? I kind of hope i have it, i mean the gluten free diet will suck for me, but if i have it then i can stop worrying about other conditions. Although i may have GERD but apparently you can have both conditions. My biggest fear is obviously the fact Coeliac can cause vomiting!!! I cant handle that. hasnt happened to me but still. Just want to know whats causing my symptoms, because the reason ive been so anxious is because of these symptoms not disappearing even when i feel calm.
