My friend's son was misdiagnosed with celiac when he actually had Crohn's and he was studying in my city far from home so we ended up trying to get him sorted for her. A real flare up looks excruciating.
My daughter had the blood test for it which thankfully was positive so she didn't need the biopsy. My Grandmother needed a biopsy and she said it was a terrible experience. Granted she was 65 and already in poor health.
