In the last two years I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos and B12 deficiancy... started b12 shots (every two weeks) and thyroid meds. In the last 6 months or so things for me went back down hill. Wieght gain horrible fatigue horrible peripheral neuropathy If I ate even a small meal it felt like I had swallowed a watermellon for days. Forget a normal bathroom rotuine. Horrible headaches some for a week at a time HUGE hair loss and what I thought was razor rash ALWAYS on my legs from ankle to hip. ETC...
I had blood tests about 6 months ago for crohns and celiac they were negative (although my crohns titer was up in the positive range). I also had a "negative" endo and colonoscopy. I say "negative" because it said I had long term small intestinal swelling....
Because of these results I was diagnosed with IBS and put on dicyclomine.... (it quit working)
The PA I was seeing recently left the office I visit and I had to reestablish myself....
Almost immediatly she asked if I have ever heard of celiac or gluten free....
another blood test for celiac ordered....,
I have been (I am trying really hard crosscontamination is a pain!) gluten free for about 5 days
The new test is back negative
however I feel SO much better after only 5 days can this all be psychosomatic?
I hope I wasnt too confusing I just didnt want to go over the last 5 years of doctors visits.... questions and answers welcome.
