Celiac disease is an inflammatory disease of the colon, causing this symptom you have and need continuous treatment, so you need to see a specialist to prescribe you the right medication.

HI I am 38, 2 Years ago i had a biopsy and was diagnosesd with celiac disease. so i changed my diet a lot. i was loosing alot of weight and was down to 80 pounds. I needed to do somthing about that i didnt know what to eat to make me gain weight so i started eating anything except gluten of course.I always felt bloated. I noticed that when i took apple cider vinegar pills my stomach didnt hurt as much and i didnt bloat and get gassy like normal. my weight now is 110 and im happy with that. now in saying this im noticing that my stomach(just below my breasts) feels hallow and has a sharp pain, but around my belly button area feels very bloated all the time no matter what i eat. 2 months ago i was getting really sharp pain in my stomach, below my breasts area so the doctors put me on acid reducer pills for 2 months i now take zantac once a day everyday. I still fell the pain but its bare able. My eating is pretty clean i have a coffee and rice cakes with peanut butter for breakfast, bowl of porridge for lunch, and chicken with a salad and 1/2 cup rice for supper. pretty bland... My questions for you are apple cidar vinegar pills accually healthy for you and are ok for taking for years or are they just a trend. Do apple cidar vinegar pills work against acid reflux or am i hurting myself by taking both of these pills. Im tired of feeling like this with no matter what i eat.. thank you for your time..
