Does This Sound Like Celiac To You?

21 March 2013 - 12:18 PM

Hi everyone, I am brand new here and I have a couple of questions.

I think that my daughter and I have either celiac, or gluten intolerance of some sort.

  I am 30 years old and she is 7.

Here are our issues -

 

Me -

 

hypothyroid

weight gain

irritability

sadness/emotional

extreme gluten and sugar cravings

arthritis

stress fractures

many, many spine problems including completely dessicated discs and broken vertabrae with no known cause

joint, bone, and muscle pain

various intenstinal problems

bleeding ulcer

vertigo

depression

panic attacks

memory issues

brain fog

acid reflux

blood clots

frequent migraines

strange allergic reactions

VERY FREQUENT illnesses and infections - This last year alone I have had the flu around 10 times, bronchitis, pink eye, severe sinus infection, numerous skin, tooth, and wound infections, several colds, and I even had MRSA 

 

and I'm sure I have forgotten some things

 

my daughter -

 

mood issues

panic attacks

discolored teeth despite good dental health routines

breathing issues

constant cravings for food, especially gluten containing food

 memory issues

heart problems and low oxygen saturation

 

 

We eat healthy most of the time, are pretty active, spend a lot of time outside and generally live a heathy lifestyle. I feel like I am falling apart here.

I don't have the money to go in and get tested but I would imagine if we went gluten free for a while and most of the symptoms disappear that would pretty much answer my question. How long does it take to see symptom improvement? Does this sound like a gluten issue to you?

 

Thanks so much for reading....
