  1. Hi, I desperately need some advise. I've been having dull stomach aches and pressure in colon for the past few years. It's worse after a eat. I also suffer from constipation and haven't hsd diarrhea for at least 4 years, not even once. My other symptoms are chronic depression and anxiety for the past 16 years. And even as a child I was quite anxious, always worrying, but that could be due to my very strict father, whom I was terrified of. At 13 i developed eye inflammation (posterior uveitis), doctors did several tests but never found the cause. I have had recurring uveitis over the years and developed chataracts on both eyes. I'm 38 now. The past 5 years I have been getting numbness that starts in my hands and spreads to my whole body from my neck down to my toes. It stays for 2 to 3 months and dissapears very gradually. MRI of spine didn't show signs of MS. I've also suffered knee pain for a long time. Vaginal thrush was also a problem for me since I was a teenager, but that has resolved after a strict anticandida diet. Last year I had an endoscopy which showed a hiatus hernia and a blood test showed H. Pylori. Depression and anxiety are my worst symptoms of all, and antidepressants never helped. Do you think all of this could be due to gluten intolerance? I had bllod tests done last year but they came back negative. I asked for my levels of IgA to be tested and they were quite low. I read that they can be low in gluten intolerant people. Started a gluten free/casein free diet a week ago, but my stomach ache is still there and I feel very irritable and down. The only improvement I've seen is my face, which used to be extremely oily has become drier the past two days and my severe acne which I've been battling for at least 15 years havw startwd to clear up. I would go for a biopsy but what if it shows that I don't havw celiac, what do I do then... I would really appreciate your opinions. Ana
