A couple of years ago I had a positive coeliacs antibodies blood test but biopsy was negative. So I was told I'm not coeliac.
I've had IBS for years. Bloating, alternating bowel movements, pain and discomfort etc etc.
I have been gluten free 100% for several months and feel good. I miss proper gluten food sometimes and on Sunday when we "ate out" I gave in to my lust for home made steak and ale pie with Apple pie and custard to follow. I must say it was delicious!
The next day I had terrible uncontrollable "wind" that smelt like something had crawled up inside and died! - yuck - also bloating, rumbling/squelchy noisy tummy, and constipation and the runs in the same movement several times that day! Sorry to be so graphic! Lol! I had a raised temperature, headache and sore achy joints. The smelly flatulence is still making it's presence obvious ( not much fun for poor hubby ).
I had another antibody blood test 2-3 months ago that came back negative, which is probably why I succumbed to my longing for gluten. I guess I over dosed on gluten but wonder (even tho symptoms were minor compared to true coeliac sufferers) if I actually am a coeliac or just sensitive. Or maybe neither?
Thanks in advance for comments
