is it possible that children will have seizures due to this disease? Along with exhaustion?


Can a child be misdiagnosed as epileptic and narcolepsy, and mono; if a doctor would see a child with the same symptoms as children with celiac disease. Family have been diagnosed with celiac, however, when taken to the doctor, the doctor would just say they had a belly ache and or the bloating of the stomach just meant they were full. The bloating was so bad that they looked more like Ethiopians. The doctor never tested them for celiac disease is this common?
