I am currently being tested (blood, endo, and GB ultrasound) for the cause of numerous symptoms and so decided to do a little research on my own. When I came across celiac disease, I began to wonder if my hiccups are related. I get them upon eating bread, crackers, pretzels, etc... Anyone else ever noticed a correlation or seen any research on a relationship between this phenomon & celiac disease?
And, for those who are curious, my symptoms are:
Iron Deficiency Anemia
Loss of Appetite
Edema in lower extremeties
Difficulty swallowing/feels like air bubbles
Pain in upper abdomin/right side
Extremely chapped lips
Bumpy, flesh colored & intensely itchy rash that comes and goes
Increasing numbers of Boils & Skin Tags
Frequent upset stomach (uneasy, gasy, noisy)
Occasional loose, mucusy, malodorous BMs
Slow & steady weight increase despite concerted efforts
Extremely painful, irregular menses
Geez, I sound like a mess! But in all honesty, I feel ok most of the time. Mostly just exhausted (constantly) and annoyed with the other symptoms.
Any thoughts out there?
