No Official Diagnosis...Need Your Help

07 January 2010 - 09:17 AM

Ok here it goes, I am very new to this so I don't really know how to do this but here is my history. I am 32 yrs old. when I was a baby I had a bloated belly all the time, doctors told my parents I was allergic to a huge variety of foods but never wheat products, they were very poor so they never pursued testing. I have struggled with stomach issues my whole life! I go back and forth with constipation and diarrhea, I developed a rash at 16 dermatologist said I was allergic to heat, I still have it! Ive been married for 10 years and no babies with no birth control I did get preg once but miscarried, diagnosed with anxiety issues as well put me on medication but i stopped taking it. I've been told I had parasites with no testing (just by looking at me). I've been told I have absolutely nothing wrong(with no testing). I went to the emergency room and had a ct scan and the doctor yelled at me and told me i needed to use the bathroom, and I was too embarrassed to tell him I couldn't because he was just making fun of me, 2 of my teeth are starting to lose their enamel. I have no insurance so I saved money to go to the gastro dr. 1 month ago, and I explained to him that it always happens after I eat and that I just don't know what to eat anymore, and he just said "why? eat whatever u want there is nothing wrong". so anyway I heard about celiac disease and my husband encouraged me to go gluten free for a while and see what happens, so I'm 3 weeks in and I do feel a lil better but every once in a while my belly will mess up again. So what do you guys think? Should I pursue the official diagnosis, I'm worried since i've had the symptoms so long that my my intestines could be really damaged. Oh yeah and my hair is thinning pretty bad and my skin has gotten bad, are these things reversible? Im sorry this is so long, thank you for reading.
