  1. Hi, I am not sure if this is the right place? I want to post my info and possibly get some feedback as I start on my journey. About 10 yrs ago I started with symptoms that GP's were thinking were related to thyroid and then bloods were showing negative. I spent a long time with many symptoms including having a hysterectomy for fibroids (7 yrs) and weight gain, hair thinning,fatigue, cold intolerance/itchy skin/tinnitus type noises/low mood/mild anxiety/tearfulness/recurrent puffy face and eyes/bloating/some constipation - and so on. I ended up joining a forum and finally having battled the system and seen a private doctor (who said I had an autoimmune thyroid condition) and now self treat - my health started to improve - since 2 yrs ago. Recently I have started to crave food/always feel hungry and always being a chocoholic that has featured big time. I always eat healthy and have not really been into processed foods sticking with cooking fresh. I am always tempted to eat a lot of cakes/biscuits at work on special occasions or at home if it is there. I have been comfort eating also due to some work stress. My symptoms - I feel tired and not wanting to exercise/bloated/put on weight - 10lbs in about 4 months - fatty stools as described as a symptom of gluten intolerance which are really smelly (sorry). I have another cold and sometimes have achy bones/joints. I have had some sinus discomfort and headaches. I am taking T3/Liothyronine and was taking B12 and Selenium ( I ran out and stopped taking the vitamins so regularly) So - I am wondering whether I may be gluten intolerant and not having much faith in the NHS General Practitioners - I would like to explore this myself. I do not have diabetes or any other conditions - I am female and 49 yrs old. When Christmas is out of the way - I plan to address gluten and see. Any thoughts would be very welcome. Many thanks
