Hey guys! A year after being diagnosed with Celiac (3 years ago), I was diagnosed with lupus. Most of the time I can tell which one is bothering me by my symptoms (and I usually automatically know when I've been glutened).
For the last 6 days I have been exhausted, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, facial rash, vomiting, body aches, and hot flashes. I have not eaten anything questionable. At first, I just thought I inadvertently glutened myself, but it just keeps dragging on...
I wonder if this is indeed the Celiac or if it's Lupus. If it's Lupus I prob need to get a steroid. The prob with that is oral steroids KILL my GI tract. I am miserable, and my butt is killing me!
Just wanted to know from someone who has both, how you know which is which? Steroids or no? ANA? Sed Rate? Should I go to my PCP? GI doc? Rheumy? I have to get better. We are buying a new house, and I need to get busy! Also, should I ask for an IV to get some fluids?
Thank you much!
