The Pieces Dont Fit- Help!

01 February 2013 - 12:32 PM

i'm 23 years old. ive been to 5 different doctors and no one can figure out whats going on. here are my symptoms
-high ANA
-joint pain throughout my entire body
-hair loss
-inconstant stool
-one hand cold while the other is warm
-in and out of anemia for quite some time
-extremely low iron stores
-low b12
-foggy mind

ive tested negative for
-rheumatoid arthritis

ive taken multiple xrays all which have some back normal, and my foot got so swollen last weekend that i could not walk for 3 days. they did test for celiacs and it came back negative. however, ive done SO much of my own research, and ive found that those symptoms are common for people with a gluten intolerance. ive also found and heard that 7/10 times the test is a false negative?? im honestly so confused and in so much pain. i feel miserable. if anyone has any insight i'd really appreciate it.
