Could I Have Celiac? A Long List Of Lifelong Symptoms...

18 February 2013 - 08:37 PM

So, I've always had a HUGE fear of doctors. I am now 32 years old, and finally just went in for my first physical in like... 15 years.


My doctor discovered that I am severely anemic. He wants to test for Celiac now. After my last appointment my head is spinning and I have been doing research and I am now wondering if some of you think these symptoms could indicate this. I know I could wait for the results, but I am just impatient I guess!


Gallbladder disease (I had mine removed due to gallstones when I was 20... very young)

Severe IBS (which I attributed to lack of gallbladder)

Gerd after eating wheat (mostly in the morning)

Mucus in bowel movements

Random abdominal pains

Delayed menarche (first period wasn't until I was almost 15)

Irregular periods

Rapid hair shedding

Weak fingernails



Muscle cramps

Chest pain

Mildly insulin resistant

Slightly elevated C-Peptides from Pancreas


When I was 20, just prior to my diagnoses with gallstones, I also was SEVERELY ILL for unexplained reasons. I was extremely fatigued (probably slept 14-16 hours a night), had deep chest pain, etc, and had to drop out of school for a semester. Doctors were flummoxed and told me I might have Chronic fatigue syndrome. My liver enzymes were also high.
