Went gluten free September 9th, fed up with discomfort and bloating. Felt I may have B12/Pern anaemia too.
Stopped PPI which I had been on for years. By last week, so full of acid. Doc did Intrinsic Factor blood test Friday MMA too. Gone back on Lansaprazole. Went back on gluten Friday evening. Now bloated, discomfort returned and my version of runs, every time I pee, I poo. Disturbing my sleep.
Do you think that is enough suffering to prove wheat allergy if not CD?
Have to ring up for endoscopy apt, with biopsy of top of bowel to prove absolutely coeliacs or not. Coeliac Antibody was negative(!) may have 6 week wait but should I put myself through that over Christmas or just go back GF and be content with that?
Similar with PA. feel terrible. NO evergy, I sit n breathe only. Asking for B12 injections meeting brick wall as usual. Gastro took other blood "indicators" on Friday. I have all signs n symps.
Given I have done my best, ie private Thyroid test to ok thyroid, cos of tiredness, and other detective work, have only these two AI diseases to go. I have 5 others.
Would you say, sod it, back to gf and comfort and self inject and feel better (or not - no harm done) and give rest of investigations a swerve?
Sorry to mither. Brain acuity and neuropathy which are being ignored, really worring me.
Thanks guys for your honest opinions given you are NOT MDs but have more common sense than all of the Muddled Dopes put together.
