IBS and Coeliac Disease
Is anyone out there suffering from IBS with Coeliac disease? I was diagnosed with coeliac disease over a year ago after being extremely ill with severe acid reflux, panceatitis, gastritis and gall bladder disease (had my gall bladder removed). After being on a gluten free diet I put on weight after having lost a lot. However, lots of symptoms remain which the gastroenterologist says are not coeliac symptoms so must be IBS. I have pain in my upper back which can be worsened if I eat anything that doesn't agree with me i.e. onions, spices. I also still get acid reflux and a constant sour taste in the mouth. Now following the FODMAP diet but the pain does get me down as I have to work. I take amitriptyline at night for the pain. I have had meds for acid reflux but they really don't work for me. If anyone has coeliac disease and IBS symptoms I would be very interested to know that I am not alone!!
