      Hi, I have a quite large amount of the symptoms of celiac disease, but I don't want to go to the doctor unless there could be a real chance I have it (they think I'm a hypochondriac because during my teen years I had asthma problems which they told me I was faking/not taking my drugs - until I was sent to hospital and those doctors found out I DID have something very wrong with my lungs).

      The syptoms I have are very bad stomach pains (usually after I eat - sometimes its so bad I won't eat for a day, at the end of which I feel a lot better). I flit from having constipation, then diarrhea, and bloat. I feel very tired a lot of the time (not related to the days I can't eat!), and get mouth ulcers very regularly.

      I know that there are diabetes and thyroid problems in my family (diabetes is more distant, my mother has thyroid problems, also her father died of bowel cancer at a young age, along with his sister.), along with other autoimmune diseases - asthma which is very common in my family.

      Am I being a hypochondriac?

      I'm thinking of having a trial gluten-free diet, to see how I feel. What do you think with the symptoms?
