I Need Help!

Recommended Posts

Ok...probably long and boring but I need your help. I have been having having alot of problems probably all my life but everything has gotton worse in the last few years. I have suffered from depression, anxiety, joint pain, fatigue, low energy, brain fog, insomnia, etc. I could go on and on. I have taken every anti-anxiety and depression medicine out there. Well, I really wasn't getting anywhere with doctors so I decided to try and figure things out for myself. About eight months ago I called my primary care doctor and asked them to send me copies of my labs. Once I got those and had them interpreted I realized I have an underactive thyroid. I have changed my lifestyle big time. I don't drink, smoke, take any prescriptions or OTC meds. I exercise and eat right. I have kept a food diary for years but more detailed for the last eight months. I had hoped once I found out about the underactive thyroid that I would be able to fix it. No such luck. I have found quite a connection with gluten and my symptoms and also with my body temps. When I eat gluten my temps will go down and stay down for days.

Okay, so here is my point. I also recently found out that Celiac runs in my family. Could Celiac have caused my thyroid problem? I have never been tested but I see the connection so strongly. Since I haven't been tested there are times when I act like there isn't a problem at all and eat what I want but pay the price. The fastest symptom I notice is joint pain in my left knee.

Does anyone know of doctors in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area that can test me for Celiac and help me with my thyroid at the same time? Also, I do not have insurance so it has to be someone willing to let me pay cash for reasonable prices. Is there a lab I could send off and get results back?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I am just at the point where I can't deny this any longer. This past weekend was the worst. I allowed myself to eat out on Friday and by Sunday I was a raging lunatic.

Sincerely,

Michelle
