Hi. I'm new to the site. My name is Sarah. I've been wondering if I have Celiac disease for a while now, but I can't afford testing and have no insurance. Here's where I'm at: for a little over year now, i've had diarrhea. Literally every day I have to RUN (not always making it...super embarrassing) to the bathroom, especially after eating, have terrible stomach pains that precede that. I'm constantly bloated, and always exhausted. I bruise so easily that my husband is afraid that people think that he abuses me. Now, lately I've had this consistent itching...not really any rash to be seen, but I do have bumpy bits on the tops of my legs that look a bit like whelps only not red.
I'm really at a loss as to what to do. Should I go gluten-free and see if that makes a difference? My credit can't afford to take another hospital bill that i can't pay, it's already a bad score. I just feel really alone. I've missed work because of how I feel and my boss has asked why I go to the bathroom so much...i'm so embarrassed.
