Where do I start??or is it even and issue??

 

Summary: Recently diagnosed Celiac.  Gut has Healed after one year.  Huge under eye circles.

Does this mean I have an allergy to something else as well?

 

My family doctor has never had a celiac patient and will not refer me to a specialist.  I have asked for an allergy test but he refuses?

 

Does anyone know if an allergy test can pick up things like dairy, corn, eact.?

Fellow Canadian!  Have you tried contacting the doctor that did your biopsy for help? They might be able to assist you to see someone for allergy testing or at least offer insight. If not perhaps time to visit another doctor, not all doctors are good doctors and if yours isn't helping them get a second opinion. It's free :)

You might have some intolerances or allergies, but testing is not very accurate.  A food diary can help.    Do you have other allergy symptoms besides the dark circles?  Asthma, swelling, hives, rashes, itching,  tummy aches, throat swelling?  Your circles might be genetic.  My cousin has always had them.  She uses a good concealer.

Ahhhhh makeup...the answer to almost everything. Te he he he

I do get rashes from time to time..strange little circles in random places like inner arm, leg, boob..lol

I have been reading as much about Celiac as I can, as my doctor and nutritionist do not offer much help at all besides "go online and order some books".

I have been reading that dairy is/could be harsh on the stomach after eliminating gluten and people often develop an intolerance??!!

Guess i am just being a nervous Nancy about being as healthy as I can

Dairy can be a problem for some celiacs (non-celiacs are often lactose intolerant too), but after a year of healing, your gut should be able to handle lactose unless you are genetically predisposed to being lactose intolerant.    You could have an issue with milk proteins. That can cause dark eyes, hives, rash, eczema, breathing difficulties, swelling.  So, you can remove dairy (milk protein)  for a few weeks to see if your "raccoon" eyes improve.  Our member StephanieL has an anaphylactic kid (life-threatening allergies) who has celiac disease.  She is our expert on allergies.  Testing is hit or miss per her research.  Best to keep a journal.  But you can always try getting in to see an allergist. 

Are you talking hives?  Do they itch?  Strange round circles sounds like fungus (ringworm).

I hope you find your answers!

I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance.

About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, thought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occasionally.

I know for a fact they were not ringworm because there is no place I would have been exposed to ringworm--I'm never around children.

I have also gotten rashes in other places as well since I was kid, including hives. No doctor could ever figure out why. 

 

Edited for typos and clarify.
