Hello,

I can appreciate your concern.

In coeliac disease, complete cessation of the inflammatory process can take upto 3 weeks after taking care of diet.

You would expect appetite to recover by about three weeks on the average.

But blood in stools should disappear in a week.


Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.

I hope my answer has helped you gain more knowledge and confidence about your problem and in knowing what to discuss with your doctor.

I hope my answer has satisfied you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!

I am also bloated. I feel chills and have had diahhera for two months. Any thoughts?
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 10 months ago.
This could be coeliac disease.

But other things to consider are protozoal infection like giardiasis.

Discuss this with your doctor. Multiple stool cultures are often required to detect giardiasis.

Inflammatory bowel disorders like Crohn's and ulcerative colitis also need to be ruled out. Discuss with your doctor about doing a colonoscopy.

I'm scared it could cancer
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 10 months ago.
No, not likely.

Not the typical symptoms of cancer. Besides considering your age it is unlikely.

But do discuss with your doctor about doing a colonoscopy which can rule this out.

Oh good. I have no appetite, chills, diahhera, sore toungue. Swollen lymph nodes on neck that decreased in size but still there, I had a flue that lasted a week about two months ago that came with the nodes and rash on the back of my neck. Rash is done fever down. Thyroid was elevated but now normal. What do you think? Also had been diagnosed with strep g on my toungue
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 10 months ago.
Infections like Infectious Mononucleosis need to be ruled out.

Besides this, giardiasis as I said, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease, microscopic colitis and malabsorption syndromes like coeliac as you have intuited are the differential diagnoses here.

Discuss all these with your doctor. Investigations like colonoscopy and stool culture are needed for this.
