Help! Have Had Stomach Issues For Years,now Maybe Think It Could Be Celiac?

29 January 2013 - 11:02 AM

Hello! I am a 19 year old girl who has been dealing with stomach issues for years. However, recently it has seemed to get worse. I have always thought I had a little bit of lactose intolerance, so I stay away from milk usually and take lactaid when i do. I started adderall at the beginning of the summer, but this has been for years. I have always had frequent bowel movements, but in the past two years it has gotten worse. I must go to the bathroom within 10 minutes of eating. I often pass just small stools, usually with mucus or just small fatty stools. I have lost about 30 pounds in a year or so, and have little appetite. I do not know if that is from medicine or something else, as it started before the medicine. I have always had "brain fog" often forgetting what i am saying half way through a sentence, and forgetting things short term VERY often. I have diarrhea alternating with constipation, and can sit on the toilet for a while before even producing a tiny stool. I have always been very fatigued, blaming it on being a college student, but it gets to the point where i dont want to do anything. I am on zoloft for anxiety and depression, and this is not helping. I spend all day on the toilet or waiting to see if I need to use the bathroom. I also urinate VERY often and have issues sleeping or doing anything if I have not immediately before used the bathroom. Please help and let me know if anyone thinks this looks like celiac! I now can eat pretty much anything and not gain weight, but have little appetite usually. My stomach constantly gurgles and rumbles, as well as constantly having small mouth sores for a large part of my life. My menstrual periods are irregular lately, and it is just all over really not fun. Please help me stop this.
