meggg added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsFreaking OutI went for my first doctor appointment in 7 years five days ago. I talked to my doctor about depression/anxiety, irritability, weight loss (60 lbs in 6 months) I had quit drinking soda bc i believed it was bloating me and making me gassy but it didn't really help. Also talked about me believing I was anemic due to my addiction to ice. He told me he wanted to run some blood tests for the anemia and possibly thyroid. Well he also tested me for celiac and I got the call yesterday that I had tested positively for celiac and I was anemic and had a vitamin D deficiancy. They are setting me up an appointment with a GI doctor. After reading up on the symptoms it all makes sense, but I am still scared about how big of a change this will be. I am 25 and a mother of three. My husband doesn't think it is a big deal but this is serious right? I should be freaking out a little right? Also, should my children get tested? Just need some comfort I guess.
