Do I Have Celiacs

Recommended Posts

My symptoms have been Extreme tiredness, feeling extremely unhealthy all the time, lethargic, depressed Mood swings, bloating, distention, similar symptoms to irritable bowel syndrome. I was diagnoses as severely iron deficient and very low in B12. I suffer joint pain on and off. Shouldn't my doctor have noticed this.

I have never been able to stomach beer because of how it sits in my stomach (1/4 of a beer will make me sick). Sometimes I wont eat all day have one biscuit and I will feel so bloated and my stomach will swell up like a balloon. White bread can make me bloated. Whenever I am on a healthy diet I feel better as I have always been addicted to breads so I try to cut down on breads by two thirds when I'm on a diet and also cut out processed foods.

The only syptoms I dont have is weight loss and diarrhea. I eat far to much to lose any weight and my stools are a mix of diarrhea to normal to constipation.

I was in tears when I found this forum. I basically feel so crap all the time no matter how hard I try. Until two days ago I had no idea about anything to do with celiacs or gluten intoerence.

I realise I need to get tested but please tell me what you think about my symptoms.

It sounds suspicious for sure for Celiac. Do you have a Doctor? You should go and get a complete Celiac blood panel. Report back us. Hope you get to the bottom soon.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)
