I am undiagnosed as coeliac but my GP had told me to avoid wheat and gluten due to the severity of my symptoms, I tried just cutting out wheat and this didn't improve the symptoms as much as I would like, cutting all gluten makes my symptoms a lot better although I think it is going to take time to recover, I get severe cramps and bloating nausea sickness headaches etc when I eat anything containing even small amounts of gluten. I had a colonoscopy which was clear but they didn't take biopsies and my blood test was clear, does this mean it is definitely not coeliac just a sensitivity? I was told that they needed to do an endoscopy and biopsy to be sure but I freaked at the colonoscopy an there is no way I could cope with an endoscopy so just carry on without gluten in my diet but it means I cannot get anything on prescription. my friend who is coeliac is convince this is what I have the only difference between is is I get severe constipation more often than diarrhoea
