Well, not literally. Just more of them than I realized, especially looking back through the years.

Make a list for your doctor.

Would the night sweats have anything to do with perimenopause?

Yea they could be. However if you seem to be starting to go through menopause a bit early that may be stopped in it's tracks gluten free. Celiac can cause issues with infertility and early menapause that can resolve gluten free if the celiac is caught early enough.

:) I was just coming back on to say something to this effect, Raven...(great minds!)

I started perimenopause in my late 30's. I had multiple miscarriages and painful & invasive infertility treatments to no avail. Endometriosis, uterine cysts and fibroids, etc. I had a horrible and prolonged early menopause that I put up with for 9 years, (insomnia, migraines, constant bleeding and cramping, hot flashes, weight gain, blah blah blah) trying everything the GYN suggested until finally she suggested a total hysterectomy.

They did not associate these reproductive and GYN issues to Celiac back then.

I have no doubt in my mind that unDXed celiac disease caused all that misery.

No other females in my family had this problem and they all have children.

Do not wait that long to go gluten free, if you think it is your problem. If I had known back then what I know now..... :rolleyes:

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
