Topics I've Started

Overwhelmed

14 May 2009 - 10:21 AM

Hi,
I found out about a month ago that I have celiacs. Since then I have been eating a gluten free diet. There have been a few mess ups (hand soap, mouth wash, alcohol, etc.), but besides that I make sure I don't consume gluten.
In December (before I found out about the celiacs) I found out I had mono. Originally it went away but then it flared back up again making me sick for months (weak, dizzy, headaches, problems with speech).
Starting a month ago I went back to school. I am a 21 year old full time college student. The quarter before I had to take a hardship withdrawal. Yet this quarter I have been feeling much better. For the first two weeks I felt almost entirely fine. Yet about two weeks ago it started again. I had an incident with mouth wash and the next four days I had migraines. Since then I have been having body aches, more headaches, temperature fluctuations, exhaustion ( to the point where I can't stand up without help), and a mind fog (almost continually). I had a blood test done which says that it is not mono. I am not sure what is wrong. I eat a healthy balanced diet (although I am a vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free). My doctors are unhelpful.
My question are: Could this be related to celiacs or is it something else like mono? Also, I am wondering if anyone else has problems with school. I am very stressed out about it. I am a junior and am trying to graduate. I am probably going to have to take a hardship withdrawal for this quarter too (it's been two weeks and I still can't physically make it to my classes). Any advice dealing with this too would be great.
Thanks,
Becca
