  1. Hi can I ask why you have mentioned these? I haven't been tested for either I have an appoint with consultant tomo
  2. Thank you for all the responses. I have an appointment on Monday to see consultant so hoping he will run further tests which have been suggested here. Does anyone suffer with the supposed brain fog? My memory is terrible to the point where I really have to think about things I did yesterday!
  3. Hi,   I am hoping for some advice and maybe see if anyone has been in the same situation.   When I was pregnant with my 3rd child - I fell very ill during the last trimester. I did not gain any weight, had extreme tiredness to the point I was in bed for two weeks (it was not just tiredness from pregnancy) drying my hair tired me out. I was sick, then had bouts of diarreah.Severe heartburn and from the beginning of pregnancy i was slighty anemic. I was put on tabs for heartburn and doc prescribed iron tabs - which i stopped taking as she thought these could be causing the sickness, My daughter was born 4 weeks early which they think was triggered by placenta abrubption.   I was convinced that me being ill and my daughter being early was linked - but docs said that I just unfortunately had a bad time of it, I have two other children and sailed through the pregnancys with them!!!   After the birth I was still getting abdominal pain and severe heartburn - so doc sent me for an endoscopy which showed I had a hiatus hernia, the consultant mentioned a wheat intolerance so took some biopsies - the results showed inflammation in my duodenum 'COMPATIABLE WITH CELIAC' which has confused my doc!! She did some blood tests which were EMA - Negative and IGA - Normal.   she has referred me back to the specialist to maybe have a genetic test and to discuss symptoms.   I do not feel half as bad as I did in pregnancy - still have heartburn and nausea. Have not been sick! Sometimes have dizziness and bouts of  constipation/ loose stools _not exactly diarreah,   I am hoping someone can advise me on what they think!!!!
