Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I am in desperate need of some support and guidance. For a few months I have had many health issues: prolapsed bladder, bacteria vaginitis, constipation with bouts of diarrhea and severe lower back pain. I have been to the ER 3 times, last time was Sunday with severe back pain that doesn't let up. They gave me morphine, then dialudid and finally Percocet before I was comfortable enough. They did an MRI, which they said looked okay. I had a colonoscopy yesterday. I was crying because of the back pain before I went in and woke up crying. The dr said my colon looked good! Now I have an endoscopy on Friday. I am just beyond frustrated and can't handle the pain anymore. Could it be Celiacs? Would that show up on a MRI? Blood work showed my thyroid was slightly low.

Now I am not an expert on Celiacs, but from what I understand there is only 1 definitive way to test for celiacs and that is the endoscope biopsy. You can have a blood test done to see if you have the gene, but just because you have the gene doesn't mean you have celiacs which is the case with my daughter.

I realize you wrote this a long time ago. What did the endoscope show?
