Resume eating gluten and go to the doctor for a blood test.  I definitely sound like you are intolerant.  If you don't feel you need an "official" diagnosis, stop eating gluten 100% - be careful of even the smallest amounts and cross contamination.  

 

I had many of your symptoms.  Most were gone within a week, some took a little longer.  Now if I accidentally have gluten - even the tiniest amount, I am sick for days.  It can take weeks for me to get back to normal.  I don't make mistakes often.

 

Good luck to you.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.

      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
