So I am having so much trouble finding ANYONE who can relate.
When I have wheat/gluten I get the oddest symptoms 24-36 hours later.
Please tell me someone can relate!!!! Please!
left leg just gets numbish - I present as normal but it's so aggravating
back ache/stiff joints
fatigue/no get up and go
Side vent: I went to this other natural dr. who thought it was all bogus and gave me these supplment with other sensitivites I tested positive, INCLUDING a B complex with wheat germ. Needless to say, I don't take those anymore, but it just bugs me how people just stare at me like I'm making these symptom up. Some restaraunts are so cold hearted. I was left with nothing to eat but iceberg lettuce, broccoli & onions the other day. I was nearly in tears because I didn't bring any food w/me.

stephaniesherie added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsPre-Celiac?My naturopathic Dr. had told me to get off gluten earlier this year. I did so - on and off. :-) You know how that goes right?
Well, one reason was because of adrenal fatigue. Another was because of persistent dizziness and numbness in my left leg. It used to be a lot worse - in my left hand all the time and even loss of some muscle control. It is better, but the symptoms come on so randomly.
I took an (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) blood test and guess what? It came back SEVERE intolerance to wheat and a MODERATE REACTION to gluten/glaidin.
I've sen the results to my regular MD to see if they will allow me to take a celiac test.
I'm so upset today. Honestly. The drastic food changes I'm sure are a part of it, but more importantly just not knowing where this odd ball neuropathy comes from. The regular Dr.'s have done brain scans, thyroid testing, blood sugar, and other overall workups.
Has anyone been through this?
And, does this sound like Celiac?
