New User - Gluten Sensitivity Runs In The Family
Posted 07 October 2004 - 05:38 PM
In any case, I am worried I also have the condition. I've always had a sensitive stomach but my other symptoms are as follows:
-I'm pale - much more than my siblings
-I haven't been able to gain weight despite working out for 2 years (resistance training)
-I often suffer from bloating / abdominal discomforts. Sometimes my friends comment that i look sick after eating lunch. I feel it too - I feel extremely exhausted and bloated, a terrible feeling. Last summer my boss asked me a few times if i wanted to go home because i was pale and feeling unwell...
-I am always dehydrated - In the morning my mouth sometimes is incredibly dry till about noon.. I usually drink about 2 litres of water in the morning alone on such occasions (happens about 1/week) - I have a normal blood-sugar level
-Occasionally I have terrible breath (can be smelled many yards away) --> how embarrassing - I have noted that such instances which are relatively rare always are accompanied by really bad bloating. Clearly a digestive problem.
-i feel extremely exhausted, depressed, and generally unwell a lot of the time (usually in the afternoon)
I would be almost relieved to be positive for celiac disease... If I can get rid of all these symptoms i think i would lead a much happier life. What do you all make of these symptoms? Thanks a lot to all of you and it's nice to have people to tlak to about this.

The worst feeling i've had is when one of my friends wrote on one of his pages of notes that my breath smells awful, which he showed my other friend sitting beside him. These friends were very good people, and wouldn't tell me... But I inadvertantly read it when i looked over at his page of notes... I felt so hurt after. (this was 5 years ago).
