This is my almost 15 year old with the sore throat and headaches. She has been taking the zantac and zyrtec and it doesn’t seem to be helping. I didn’t get the other med. The doctor thought allergies and then acid reflux. I am taking her to an ear nose and throat doc, but I also wonder if she has Celiac disease. When she was 6 they did a stomach biopsy that they said was positive . Then they did the blood test which came back negative. Or should I take her to a gastroenterologist or an internist. I don’t understand why there aren’t more doctors who understand EDS or heck, even know what it is! Can you believe a physical therapist asked me to spell it and didn’t know what it is? Thanks in advance. Everyone take care. And always thank you Dr.Diana for your hard work!
Hello, OK, doctors! My primary checked me for celiac, or you can go to a GI doc. Honestly, though, almost ALL of us consider this diagnosis, but we don’t have Celiac. We all seem to have horrid reflux, too. Did you see my lecture (videos) at ISNVD? I think all of these symptoms are from compression of our vagus nerve, and I’m working on that AS WE SPEAK! More coming soon! 🙂 Diana (oh, my PT said he “didn’t believe” in EDS. HA!)
