What causes thickened bladder wall and migraine with history of celiac disease?

My daughter has many issues with several doctors following her. I am wondering if the issues could all be related to one issue? She was diagnosed with Celiac disease not by blood test but because of fat malabsorption. She also has overactive bladder with a thickened bladder wall and she taking Ditropan. She has recently begun with what seems to be migraine headaches and possibly a few episodes of abdominal migraines. She was hospitalized for 2 days and other things were ruled out. Most importantly she is 7 1/2 and only weighs 34 pounds even though she has been strictly gluten free for 3 years.

Hi,

By what you say I feel that this might be voiding dysfunction of bladder bowel dysfunction. She needs bladder training exercises.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I am 73 years old. In the last year or so I have developed symptoms which, I think, may be related to celiac disease. In addition, I have discovered, by trial and error, that I have become lactose intolerant---when I take lactase prior to the consumption of dairy products the problem is under control. I have found that Beano before meals helps a bit, but does not always prevent the loose and foul smelling stools, which are my primary symptoms. Also, I take about 7 or 8 medications every day. Is it possible that certain medications, either alone or in combinations, may cause celiac disease? My appetite is excellent and my weight has been essentially constant while these symptoms have been experienced. I would appreciate your comments and suggestions.

I have celiac and I just had an EGD done, my doctor stopped the procedure and said I had food in my stomach and my esoplogus, I work in a bakery and that morning I had been working with a lot of flour, and hadn t eaten anything since the day before could the airborne gluten have caused this?

I was prescribed the 5mg tablet of oxybutynin for OAB by my gynecologist on 4-1-14...After taking the dosage for approximately 3-4 weeks (and experiencing episodes of shortness of breath), I landed in the ER for observation of this shortness of breath...All tests performed (i.e.EKG, echogram, CT scan of my lungs, chest x-rays, numerous blood draws) were negative (as to lung capacity, heart enlargement, etc.)...My follow-up visit with my gynecologist today (6-23-14) was basically a Q and A, with the suggestion made that I could try Enablex (too costly) or try oxybutynin again for a trial...I am somewhat hesitant, fearing a repeat performance of my ER visit...My MD seemed to feel that the shortness of breath was an anomaly not directly related to the oxybutynin...Thanks in advance for any insight you may have...

I had radical prostatectomy in 2007 which resulted incomplete urinary incontinence. In 2010 I had the implantation of the AMS 800 artificial sphincter and it has worked extremely well, but I have frequent trips, more than desirable, to urinate. I have been on VesiCare on and off for about 3 years at the lowest dosage and experienced constipation, even with supplements to prevent it. Recently I tried the Oxytrol patch and have found them to work very satisfactorly. Now after about 1 month of use, I find that I am having loose stools and some diarrea. How is it that one anti-cholinergic gave me constipation and another diarrea?

Just want to know, an urologist whom I've been consult with diagnosed my problem as neurogenic bladder.
