00Bryan00 replied to GLUTEN FREE IN SLC's topic in Celiac Disease - Related Disorders & ResearchCurrently I am looking into getting diagnosed as Celiac. I have had multiple attacks of symmeterical joint pain in wrists and ankles. There has been lots of misdiagnosis of arthritis before people have been diagnosed with celiac. IIRC. Don't hesitate to hit the search button top right and look for things like Rhuematoid Arthritis, Arthritis etc. Good luck! Are you on a Gluten Free Diet now? Notice any difference with your arthritis?
00Bryan00 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHello, Thought I would sign up on this forum as I am really stuck currently with medical aliments. I have a history of food intolerances, chronic pain and chronic depression. I recently moved to Montreal and have been relatively ok. Currenlty I am on a month long flare up stuck in a vicious cycle of GI pain and debilitating anxiety. I have been on a Gluten free, Dairy free and corn free diet for many years now. I am beginning to be suspicious of cross contamination in my kitchen as I live with 4 roommates. I am in my mid 20s and very nearly stuck inside my home. Tried to purchase groceries today but had to drop the items I had selected and run home in a panick. Recently I had joint pain flare up so bad I was pretty sure I had lost the use of my arms. I purchased a very ergonomic mechanical keyboard, Dragon Speech software and invested in some good wrist braces. The pain was perfectly symmetrical and some days it would affect my ankles symmeterically as well. Sometimes just walking to school would induce a limp in under 5 blocks. This joint pain seemed to go away completely followed by what seems a giant flare in all my other symptoms. Currently in my mid 20s with lactose intolerance since I was 9 years old. Followed by Gluten, Caseine, corn and now what seems to be fructose malabsorption. Do you think my doctors could have overlooked such a diagnosis as celiac disease? Anyone know of a celiac disease aware doctor in Montreal? Has anyone had luck with the home test kits? Did anyone find that these helped motivate a doctor to look into celiac disease more thoroughly? Anyone get horrible Anxiety flare ups? If so do you take medication? I was prescribed Clonazepam but it contains 80mg of Lactose filler.... Doh Anyone have issues with symmetrical joint pain? Symptoms: Gas/Bloating after fruit and/or fruit juice. (Fructose Malabsorbtion?) Intense pain and cramping for hours from any amount of Lactose, Casine, Corn and Gluten Joint Pain with a recent flare up in both my wrists that I couldn't use my hands. Continuous flipping between what seems like IBSD and IBSC Horrible fatigue, Fogginess Mouth Ulcers on a Monthly if not weekly basis Dry irritated eyes Light sensativity What seem to be never ending tension headaches Chronic Depression 10+ Years Psychiatrists are baffled. No responsive to anti depressants General Anxiety that flares up along with other symptoms
