Can Symptoms Come And Go?

Recommended Posts

I wasn't feeling well at all when I went to the doc (feeling the brain fog, having trouble speaking well, feeling lightheaded/almost dizzy at times, very loose stools, gas, bloating, etc). But since going to the doc (at the end of March) I'd say most of my stools are bordering on normal and I've only had really bad gas/bloating twice. I'm trying to keep my gluten consumption up (easy to do in Italy lol), so that hasnt' really changed except I'm scared to eat anything with gluten first thing in the morning. The only symptom that probably hasn't changed is the not sleeping well and then being tired all day. You'd think being tired would lead to sleeping well but so far not so much. Is this normal for symptoms to fluctuate so much? Looking back, I think it is why I hadn't ever pursued going to the dr before, the big D always seemed so random. I finally went to the dr when it seemed I was having a lot of problems and they didn't go away. I am waiting on my referral to the GI doc and don't know what he'll think when I say things in the GI tract seem more normal now!

yes!!!!symptoms can flucuate. If I had known then what I know now I could have been diagnosed properly 4 1/2 years earlier. My doctor brought up celiac, but at the time I was feeling better, so I didn't get tested.

Some people have no symptoms at all!!!

Yeah, ive also found that my symptoms fluctuate.

Over the last few months ive been back and forth to the doctor trying to work out whats wrong...(I havent been formally diagnosed with Celiac but im sure its whats wrong with me!)

I had terrible bouts of constipation (a problem for the last 7 years!), fatigue, headaches, diarrhea, nausea, bloating, cramping, integestion, anxiety and depression but they symptoms seem to come and go. I'll be really bad for weeks and weeks then have one random good week where I feel ok! Its annoying, not knowing week to week how I'll feel both physically and emotionally.

Im seeing a specialist soon and Im going to push for a celiac panel test and an allergy test! I need at solution!!

Good luck!
