  1. I am sorry you are not getting the corner piece to your health puzzle.  I was extremely similar, except that I didn't test til I got off gluten, tried to get back on gluten, but maybe a month wasn't long enough.  Also, I had genetic testing and it was definitely in my genetic makeup.  Also, recently I found out my grandmother did not die of leukemia; it was lymphoma.    My surgeon (gallbladder) didn't care what my tests said because when I got off gluten my symptoms dramatically improved, including new symptoms of erythema nodosum, migraines.  Malaise improved with magnesium, iron, vitamin B (shots), calcium, vitamin D.    Don't take mag and calcium at the same time.  Mag in a.m. and calcium at night.  You can take probiotics or prebiotics.  I can't handle nuts or dairy.  Always had headaches and migraines as a child, plus Raynaud's, rashes, probably DH about  a year before diagnosis of my gallbladder.  I never showed this to a doctor.  I was so sick at that time I was a complete hermit, working at home, sleeping my days away. 
  2. Sleep Paralysis?

    I used to have all sorts of issues when I was in my 20s, before I figured out all my problems.  I had serious constipation before the Celiac was ever discovered, and I therefore don't know if I always had Celiac or the Celiac only popped up after my gallbladder surgery.  But I always had headaches, migraines, insomnia, daytime falling asleep (even standing up), malaise, low weight, couldn't gain weight, skin problems, Raynaud's, and on and on.    I noticed a problem with peanuts causing headaches when I was little, although family members scoffed over this.    I also had some improvement with phlegm and maybe some other things by stopping dairy.    Since having my gallbladder out and having the surgeon tell me I had Celiac disease and stopping gluten, I stopped having Raynaud's.  My insomnia seems more linked to constipation, but I supplement all my deficiencies, and that seems to be helping the insomnia also.  My pain issues (aching bones) is resolved now.  I take magnesium in the morning, calcium and vitamin D (2000 IU) at night, and 25 of zinc. 
  3. Hi!    You are having a rough time.  The anemia is the worst thing, although vitamin D deficiency can also drain you some.  I would suggest supplementing it in the morning and also getting at least 15 minutes of time in the sun as possible each week.  I also take magnesium every morning and calcium at night.  I had not heard that calcium and iron were incompatible, but you can probably take them at different times and be fine.  Take the calcium at night.  
  4. Please note that Kirkland's chocolate covered raisins have new labeling that states they are processed on dirty equipment (equipment that also processes items with wheat and nuts, etc.). The product looks different also. The size of each choc-covered raisin is much bigger than previously. I am told the bite sensation is different as they are harder now, almost as if they are stale. So at least we aren't missing much.
