Well At Least I Know They Aren't Bug Bites

Recommended Posts

I've been loosing my mind for a few days now. I have what I thought were bug bites popping up all over my body. At first I thought it was fleas since we're headed into spring and I could have carried some in to my indoor kitties . . . I cleaned all the bedding etc and checked all the kitties and not a flea to be found. Then yesterday I killed a mosquito so I thought surely no new bites would pop up. . . but of course they did. Also couldn't understand why my husband was bite free and why they itched soooooo much. Finally a lightbulb went on in my head and I remembered this thread and thought about how the lesions could be described as "herpes-esqe" so I start doing reading and lo and behold I think I've diagnosed myself. I have an appointment with a doctor tomorrow anyways so hopefully they can hook me up with some meds or a dermatologist. I've never been formally diagnosed as celiac . . . my gluten intolerance was diagnosed by a naturopath and I've been gluten free for two years now. I think I got contaiminated when I visited family a week ago . . .we bought gluten-free foods but I couldn't exactly ask them to get new kitchenware. I've never had a reaction to tiny amounts of gluten so I wasn't vigilant enough I guess. Well at least now I know. Thanks celiac.com buddies for helping me figure out what on earth was going on with my body.

Diagnosed April 2006 with multiple food sensitivities (gluten, yeast, eggs, cow dairy, legumes, some nuts and veggies) and a systemic candida infection -no pre-diagnosis symptoms since!

When it first happened to me I thought it was an allergy to mango which causes a similar reaction. It was bad since I do research on tropical fruit. Finally I learned the good news I could eat mangos again but the bad news was I had celiac!
