Celiac And Lyme Diseases
0

2 posts in this topic

hey, everyone. I was diagnosed with celiac disease seven months ago, went gluten-free and I was cool for awhile. Then all my symptoms started coming back: headaches, sleepiness, and extreme irritability/moodiness/agitation. I went back to my doctor and was told I had lyme disease. Neither of these were really a surprise as I have three family members with celiac disease and two with lyme (well, one treated and one in the process). My father (who has celiac and is being treated for the lyme) hasn't been completely gluten-free, and my doctor says that is probably why it's taking him so long to recover. I'm nervous about having to go through treatment, but I'm also looking forward to starting to feel healthy again.

So mostly I was just wondering: has anyone else been diagnosed with celiac disease and lyme? Or maybe another disease? Does it really affect your immune system that much? Anyone have any experiences at all with this?

I've had Lyme Disease for the past 15 years and I was just diagnosed with celiac disease on Monday so I am not sure what to expect yet. I am looking forward to feeling better and am hoping that the gluten-free diet will do taht for me. Its confusing to know which symptoms are from celiac disease and which are from Lyme> UGH!!!
