Vagabond added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsDoes This Sound Like Gluten Intolerance?Howdy all,
I'm sure there are quite a few posts like this - but I'm looking for an opinion from all you experts. Am I crazy for thinking I may have a gluten sensitivity? This is me:
nasal congestion, runny nose, post nasal drip - since I can remember
last several months with major bloating/gas/abdomen distension
fairly frequent constipation
major fatigue in the afternoons
crazy itchy calves and tailbone area in the winter
last several months of severe hip pain upon standing after sitting
last several months of plantar fasciitis, both feet
depression/anxiety issues last several years
Other than the above, I'm a pretty healthy, active 46 year old female. I don't know if the above can all be tied together in one diagnosis, but several of those seemingly unrelated symptoms all began at the same time, a few months ago.
Went to the gastro doc yesterday, still waiting for labs to come back. His money is on lactose intolerance - but I'm not sure I buy that..... Maybe I'm just cynical, but I don't expect much from the doc. He didn't seem to buy that anything other than gastro symptoms could point to gluten.....and he wasn't interested in my diet at all, which I found weird, considering I was there for stomach issues....
Thanks so much!!
