I just found this board after doing the Google search. Let me give you a Cliff Notes version of what is going on with me. I have always had bowel trouble but in the last two years I have become constantly fatigued, Vertigo, bulging eyes, Vision loss, weight gain, low testosterone, stomach cramps, depression, and a rash on the back of my neck. I have been to many specialists and they have been debating on if it is my Thyroid, Adrenal Glands, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue etc. While I was waiting for someone to agree what my illness is I was told two weeks ago to try a Gluten free diet. So I went to my library and got the Gluten Free for Dummies book and after reading it I saw a lot of things that I seem to suffer from. So I had a blood test already scheduled this week and I called my PcP who agreed to do a comprehensive blood work for gluten sensitivity. Am I barking up the wrong tree with this?

Hello and welcome! It certainly could be and you're wise to get the testing done before you go gluten-free!
