New To Celiac Disiease

Hi Folks from North Wales UK.

Thankfully I have found this forum and it is looking to be a great resource for me. Having just discovered that I have Celieac disease it came as a bit of a shock as I am already suffering fromME/CFS (Chronis Fatigue ).

I am in th eprocess of talking with my doctor wether I ahve been mis diagnosed as ME/CFS as from what I can gather there are a number of similarities between the two.

However sionce I have cut out the gluten in my diet I have found a remarkable if not sublte difference, in my well being. For the first time in years I do feel as if I have a spark of life in me, although at present due probably to poor diet and nutrition, and being house/bed bound for a number of years I am slowly improving. However I have found that when I am feeling well I do tend to over do things believeing that I can be as I was before I first became ill, and then that leads me to being exhausted and feeling very ill indeed. I suppose that is more to do with deconditoning than anything alse, what do you think?

Anyway it is nice to be here and I look forward to getting involved on this forum.

Take care.

Gazza

Welcome Gazza--It's normal to get excited about feeling better and also normal to feel that you can do more than you probably should. Just give it time and do a little more each day.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
