My Symptoms - Don't Think It's Celiac But Maybe Intolerance?

25 June 2012 - 02:28 PM

Hey, everyone. New here.
Just wondering if anyone will tell me what they think of my symptoms. I don't think I have Celiac but possibly just gluten intolerance or sensitivity.

For the past two months I have been extremely nauseated (never puking), which is one of the reasons I'm curious.

I went to the doctor today finally to discuss the nausea and she thinks it's because of too much acid in my stomach, but she ordered a Celiac blood test just in case because I asked her too. She also ordered a CBC, and two other tests (can't remember which ones) - I assume because of what my mother has (see more in the bottom of the post).

  • Nausea - constant
  • Fatigue
  • get dizzy sometimes - oftentimes when I stand up I get huge head rushes to the point where I'm seeing black and fall over
  • Increased gas (kinda smelly LOL)
  • constantly want cake and chocolate(don't know if this would be a real symptom because I have lost a good 25 pounds since January and have restricted my dessert intake)
  • constant headaches
  • sometimes get short of breath for no reason
  • once in a while (maybe every two weeks) I get a weird tingling/heated sensation in my legs
  • heartburn (have had for at least a few years)
  • suffer from anxiety and depression
  • very irritable all the time
  • joint pain (I have Reflex Neurovascular/Sympathetic Dystrophy)
  • have trouble falling asleep
  • get UTIs and Conjunctivitis quite a lot
  • have been having more constipation than usual (used to get constipated a lot as a child but it stopped when I entered my teen years)

My family has a history of heart disease, depression (grandmother was suicidal), and cancer. My mother's parents were born in Sicily and she has Thrombocytopenia (giant platelets), which I believe may have some relation to Celiac but I'm not certain. She also has a thyroid problem (I tested for it a year ago but it came back negative as well as anemia). I have also been misdiagnosed for Rheumatoid Arthritis if that helps, but that was changed to the RND.

What do you think? I don't think I have the major Celiac symptoms but the ones I do have have to mean something, right?
