Recommended Posts

Hii all...

i have many symptoms started 5 months ago !...

at the beginning start feeling dizziness then fatigue, pain all over the body (muscle pain), Muscle twitching, Skin rash,  can not gain weight, low appetite ,headaches,low concentration, brain fog,  weakness in arms and legs, low energy, Constipation/ diarrhea.

 

i had many investigations: Brain CT, Blood Tests, Neurological examinations, Brain MRI, ---> all are NORMAL - Except Vitamin D deficiency which is now corrected. and Low Lithium <0.1 (Normal value 0.6-2.5)/

 

then i started taking Multivitamins, Magnesium supplements and Vitamin D, ashwagandah, and after 3 months i started to feel better, some good days some bad days! but generally i feel much better. (No dizziness ,much less twitching, no tinnitus, No brain fog) still have some weakness and 

 

i started thinking about Celiac disease or gluten intolerance,,,, i had Blood Test for Celiac disease and Biopsy,,,, Blood test for celiac came Negative,,,, but the biopsy shows irregular, reduced Villi, and Increased Number of Lymphocytes. (1st and 2nd part of duodenum).

since 1 week i am eating Gluten-free. i feel much much better in the first 4 days ! 

but now since 2 days started again to have some weakness with little headache. 

 

with that results, can it be only Gluten intolerance? and how long i need to feel better?! or to clear Gluten from the body?

Hi!  Welcome!  

It can take a long time to heal from celiac disease.  First , learning the gluten free diet can be hard.  Cross contamination can be a problem.  Read our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.  Second, most celiacs have a lot of collateral damage beyond the GI tract.  It usually takes weeks to months to even years to recover.  

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease caused by the ingestion of gluten.  Once the body reacts, it can keep attacking the small intestinelong after you have removed gluten from your body.    

Keep at the diet and be patient!
