I’m really confused. I’ve been ill since May last year. Heartburn/ indigestion constantly as well as bad spells of diarrhoea and dreadful fatigue.Nothing relieved my symptoms! In September when I was told I had to wait 4 months to see a consultant I took it upon myself to eliminate acid and most gluten containing foods out of my diet. By December I was seeing great improvements. Had gastroscopy last week and he said he saw signs of flattened villi and I must stop my diet before my tests next week. I tried to stop my diet but oh my goodness my symptoms came back with a vengeance! I don’t think I can have celiac as although I removed most gluten from my diet I did have the occasional treat. When I had my symptoms under control in December and I had a treat, I wasn’t dashing to the loo. Surely if I was celiac, wouldn’t I have been dashing to the loo every time I ate a gluten containing treat?? Sorry for the long post, can anyone help?
