Could I Have Celiac? A Long List Of Lifelong Symptoms...
0

3 posts in this topic

So, I've always had a HUGE fear of doctors. I am now 32 years old, and finally just went in for my first physical in like... 15 years.

 

My doctor discovered that I am severely anemic. He wants to test for Celiac now. After my last appointment my head is spinning and I have been doing research and I am now wondering if some of you think these symptoms could indicate this. I know I could wait for the results, but I am just impatient I guess!

 

Gallbladder disease (I had mine removed due to gallstones when I was 20... very young)

Severe IBS (which I attributed to lack of gallbladder)

Gerd after eating wheat (mostly in the morning)

Mucus in bowel movements

Random abdominal pains

Delayed menarche (first period wasn't until I was almost 15)

Irregular periods

Rapid hair shedding

Weak fingernails

Fatigue

Dizziness/Vertigo

Muscle cramps

Chest pain

Mildly insulin resistant

Slightly elevated C-Peptides from Pancreas

 

When I was 20, just prior to my diagnoses with gallstones, I also was SEVERELY ILL for unexplained reasons. I was extremely fatigued (probably slept 14-16 hours a night), had deep chest pain, etc, and had to drop out of school for a semester. Doctors were flummoxed and told me I might have Chronic fatigue syndrome. My liver enzymes were also high.

Hi Manuela and welcome to the forum!

 

To answer your question, yes, yes, and yes on several of your symptoms and ailments.

 

Hopefully you've been through the worst of it now ... and you'll eventually feel much better on a gluten-free diet.

 

In the meantime, in case you aren't aware,  it's important to continue your usual diet until the testing is complete.

 

Wishing you the very best!

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, I have been on a paleo diet since November, so I am not sure I will get a positive reading. I haven't eaten grains in any form since then. My doctor is aware of this, though. I am not sure how to get diagnosed on my current way of eating...
