Celiac Symptoms: Could not Eat
From Anita: After a bout of food poisoning, I just could not get better. In addition to terrible fatigue, and constant nausea and abdominal pain, I developed severe difficulty swallowing, aka dysphagia.
When I tried to eat, I would cough and gag, so I was living on smoothies. I lost 20 lb rapidly, and was very weak.
My GI doc did the right tests, and now I am feeling much better. I learned that many people with CD have some problem with the motility in the upper GI tract, though it can be subtle.

Thanks so much for letting us know about your symptoms, Anita. It may help someone who is having the same problems.
Glad you had a doctor who knew the right tests, and that you are feeling better!
