Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for asking a question to H.C.M.F.
Bloated, fltulence, rumbling stomach,pain under the ribs. Nausea after eating, itching and joint pains, no relief after all tests, and all systems of medicines.
Pain under the ribs usually suggests stomach irritation, liver and gallbladder problems, pancriatitis, lactose intolarance, worms in the intestine etc.
Diverticulitis related with gluten diets will be situated in the sides of stomach.
I advise you to be calm and quiet as the anxiety, and tensions may cause gastric disturbances. Practice yoga, meditation, reading books, and hearing music.
Try to have bland foods like bread, and anything with out spices.
Avoid taking spicy foods, junk foods, and oily foods.Try to avoid milk and milk products.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best wishes.

Hi, I have coeliac disease and have been adhering to a gluten free diet for about a year now since I was diagnosed. I ve always had a problem with fatigue and had attributed it to the coeliac disease; however, now that I m on a gluten free diet I had thought that might alleviate it - it hasn t. I can sleep anywhere from 5 to 15 hours a night and always have the same lethargy, despite trying different sleeping patterns, drowning myself in coffee, having B12 injections , and doing awake things like getting out and about. Is there anything you could recommend to make me less sleepy all the time?

I have Epilepsy and Celiac Disease and it is very difficult to find gluten-free drugs that are generic (because of my co-pay/generic) that don t have gluten in them and when I do some places say that their distributing warehouse says it is N/A. What should I do, I have been calling around to pharmacies and finding out where they get certain drugs for my Epilepsy within a 30 to 40 mile around with not to good a results. What should I do ? I have tried YYYY@YYYY to them to get a certain drug in but yet no results.
