So a little background info... hey everyone, I am 25 with 2 children. I have had digestive problems since the age of 16 after my 1st child was born from a C Section. I have suffered with stomach pains, constipation, diharea, leg pain, chest pain, back pains and uti's - but not so much recently. Anyways for years i was told i had IBS, all bloods i had tested came back fine, i wasn't sent to an ultrasound or anything.
My pain comes and goes. So sometimes i feel like nothing is wrong with me then all of a sudden i am in agony with back and abdomen pains. At one point i just thought it may be due to anxiety or depression. But the pain got so bad i couldn't move with my leg pain and had flu like symptoms and agonising back pains, so i was in bed everytime i wasn't working and took a lot of painkillers. So i took a trip to the dr. Explained what had been going on for years and how it was getting me really down and i couldn't cope with the pain anymore. I was so happy she wanted to test for celiac disease and send me for an ultrasound. As in the past i have asked but never got anywhere and wasn't taken seriously (at a different gp surgery) - in the past i was told everything was fine from tests and it was probably IBS but they wouldnt medicate?
Anyways after listening to all my symptoms this Dr said i know you have been tested for everything and last time the blood test came back fine but with really low iron counts and she said aneamic is one of the symptoms of celiac so she wanted to test me for it. So i had the blood test and i was sent for an ultrasound test.
So i was given a phone call from the dr with my blood results as i couldn't book an appointment and i was going on holiday. I have been told some parts have come back positive and some negative i can't remember exact numbers or details. But he said it is most likely to be negative anyways i think they want to send me for further testing like biopsies and camera's? I was just wondering what happens at these cams and biopsies and is it likely i have celiac disease if the blood test came back more likely negative than positive? I also had an ultrasound and found out i have a double kidney too, so maybe my pains might be from the double kidney and less likely to be celiac disease? Although my digestive system does seem like the likely cause as i have suffered with stomach and back pain for a long time now, diharea and constipation. In some ways i am glad i am getting further a long with this and not everything has came back fine like my usual results kind of thing. But in some ways i am worried about further testing. I will also be seeing a urologist too about my double kidney in case it is anything to do with that. So on Monday i will be booking a drs appointment to get some advice and probably be referred to specialists.
Thank you everyone for reading any advice would be helpful.
