#656517 Disapointed...

Hi Bigbread, yes Damn indeed! I’m a bit of a newbie too. My first post was two months ago and similar to yours. I spent lots of money, and craved, finally! answers and a definition to prove I was not crazy/lazy/hopeless. The medical profession let me down. But like you I jumped on this forum and got informed and caring advice.

My blood tests were positive, my genes also, my symptoms many and severe and consistent with celiac, but the endoscopy/biopsy said ‘no’. So they closed the medical door, telling me that ‘mental illness often manifests in physical symptoms’. Oh and the next week phoned to say ‘by the way you are severely Lactose Intolerant’.

Unlike you I do not have dermo problems, except for one whole year after a miscarriage in my early twenties I did have this strange acne (like an under-skin disease) on my face (when I had bypassed that horror in my teens). So best to listen to those here who are more informed in that area.

The really funny thing I read on this Forum and I always keep in my oft-times foggy-head:

If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck… then it is a duck.
(duck = intolerances/celiac).

So, I went 100% gluten free two months ago. Felt better. Got accidentally cross-contaminated last week and spent the next few days confined to bed and with fatigue, tight calf muscles, sore neck and shoulders, and really sore mouth lips (a new symptom). So if I had any ‘Gluten Intolerance doubts/denial’ they are gone. 100% careful now.

All the best, t
