  1. I am 64 years old suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia with a soupcon of Coeliac thrown in for good measure. I have only recently been diagnosed with Coeliac, and ridiculous as it may sound, previous to diagnosis my digestive system was well under my control, much more controlled than your average set of guts, with no symptoms of Coeliac. (OK !So I could fart {pardon me} for my country, but so can many people.) I have a recto-vaginal fistula which for the last 28 years I have managed and controlled rigidly to the point of knowing what, and when to eat to prevent accidents, it had become second nature. Bearing in mind the female anatomy, there is no way you can stick a colostomy bag over that !!! So dietary control was/is of paramount importance. Following endoscopy - it will NEVER catch on as a hobby - and diagnosis of Coeliac Disease I dutifully changed my diet to Gluten free. OH! MY GIDDY AUNT! (I dare not use the words I really want to use, I will be excommunicated from the message board/forum/ decent society and probably Life itself!! I don't know, quite literally whether I am coming or going, or more to the point WHEN! Do I sound ungrateful when I say I wish nobody had thought to investigate and find the coeliac problem? I am struggling at the moment, in fact I am on fluids only, and have to say that my guts are at peace for the first time since the biopsy and change of diet. Trouble is, having achieved peace and tranquility, I am reluctant to start n solid food again.
