I Have Reached A Plateau

Recommended Posts

Some questions for your guys.

I have been gluten free for well over a year. And I seem to be stuck. My gait feels labored. My hands still tremble a little. Typing has become difficult. ( as evident in my short posts, but that may be a good thing ). I seem to have lost my alertness (big concern), I speak when spoken to and not much voluntary conversation. And just an overall feeling like I have one oar in the water. Around and around and getting no where.

Could this be a B-12 difficiency?

Could this be congnitive damage from Celiac?

Could this be Thyroid symptoms?

Could this be adrenal fatigue or failure?

Any thoughts would be welcome.

Thank you,

Lisa

A visit to the doctor may be in order. This may not be related to celiac at all. I was diagnosed 28 years ago at the age of 21 and I have had my share of illnesses and aches and pains completely unrelated to celiac.

I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks Phyllis for your repy.

My guess is that it is a b-12 issue and related to celiac, but not a gluten issue.

Please do visit your doctor to go over your symptoms. They could be related to something other than celiac...best to get a check up and confirm nothing else is amiss.

I agree with the rest, maybe time for your annual check-up? It won't do any harm to mention them to see if he can see a connection.....

If it makes you feel any better, I've been on that same plateau for a decade now..... <_<:ph34r:

Do you have painful pins and needles in your hands or feet?

If you answer yes it is more than likely B-12.

I would get checked out.

After having severe anemia, I know when I feel I am starting to fade that it is my B-12.

Get thee to a veterinarian fair goose.
