tmc added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsLaundry DetergentOn Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I was in the ER for a severe allergic reaction to "something". I had bad, bad hives, terrible itching, and my heart rate was almost 170 bpm. It was never figured out what the problem was but I think it was my laundry detergent~ GAIN brand.
Is there a tie between Celiac and detergent that you know of? Maybe some ingredient in it?
Has anyone else experience this?

tmc added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsWondering If...I might have celiac disease?
I'm a very nervous person. I have been most of my life. I'm wondering if there is an anxiety/ celiac disease connection.
My symptoms include: anxiety
afraid of public places
weight loss(35 lbs. since July '04) just from nervousness and diarrhea
middle and lower back pain(so painful that I have to lie on hard floor just to get some relief)
stomach cramps and diarrhea
pimply, fluid filled bumpy rash on hands and bottoms of feet
discolored and thick toenails
low energy level
I feel plagued just trying to do simple tasks such as standing to do dishes( so it's nearly impossible to get a job outside the home)
I was diagnosed with IBS over 3 yrs. ago and had a colonoscopy but it was still decided that I had IBS. I take an anti- anxiety drug that seems to help some with the nervousness but I still get the other symptoms.
Could I have celiac disease???
