I have an almost 9 year son that was diagnosed with celiac disease and eosinophilic esophagitis nearly 1 year ago. He was constantly feeling like something was in his throat/clearing his throat and had chronic gas. Upon endoscopy and biopsies they found both of the above diseases. We have been on a gluten free diet for a year. I feel like we have a handle on the celiac but need advice on the EE. He has had skin and blood testing for allergies and has no food allergies. He has mild environmental allergies. We placed him on swallowed inhaled steroids, zyrtec and singulair for 1 month with no resolution of symptoms. We then started him on prilosec to see if it was related to reflux. The symptoms went away so we thought we had found the source of the problem. Now 6 months later, still on prilosec, the symptoms have returned. Our Dr here is a pediatric gastroenterologist but seems to have no answers. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
