Going To Doctor Soon, Reckon I Have It?

Recommended Posts

- Bowel problems, including constipation and bloody stools that have only been getting worse lately, pretty much having them every time I go now. Mostly hard, but sometimes liquid or diarrhea-ish.

- Fatigue, was actually diagnosed with CFS in my teens (am now 20, going on 21)... Took B12 injection which is normally meant to help those with CFS but did NOT help at all.

- Weight loss, over the past few years while I have been eating a bit safer in general, still have lost weight and keep losing it slowly (down at 52-53 kilos)

- Have been increasing my Wheat rate currently and cramps, gas and bloating have gotten worse lately.

- Easy bruising, doctor noted while taking a blood test recently that I bruised very easy, even though it didn't hurt that much then it normally would.

- Muscle weakness, am very weak, have been getting weaker and weaker lately, I feel as if I'm going down a dark hole.

- Stunted growth, don't know, might be just me the genes I ended up getting, but my older sister is the same height as me, as being younger and as a male I'd expect to be at least a bit taller.

- Had stomach/chest trouble before, had to take losac to calm it down.

- Have many genetic troubles with that area, my grandmother just got told she has pancreatic cancer, and will die from it within the next few years.

ATM only doing part time at university because I just don't have the energy levels for full, feel totally weak and feel I have general malnutrition even though I take LOADS of milk, vit C, sunlight, omega 3 tablets every day and eat healthy compared to most people now days.

Anyway, my other question is, if I am stunted in growth, will there be any chance if I do have Celiac that if I do get healthy that I can finish if I haven't? My acne is still noticable, and I hope to get that checked out and get quality help because I have also tried hard on getting that down (anti-b's, loads of diff cream).

Hi there! It sounds like we're in similar positions.

I don't think I've ever heard of someone growing taller in their twenties, but I'm no expert.

I hope you get the answers you need. Have you tried a few weeks without grains or sugar? Many people, myself included, have clearer skin when they avoid foods with a high glycemic load in addition to avoiding foods containing gluten.

I know what you mean about the mysterious lack of energy. When I eat really well and take Omega-IIIs, etc. I still don't seem to be able to be as active as my peers and I get fatigued so quickly. It's frustrating to have a condition that you know is real, but is invisible.

Ya ty for reply, just asking because I've heard maturity doesn't end until mid-20s depending on what is still being matured and who it is, from what I know others can "catch up", depending on the situation.

But I only had this disease mentioned less then a week ago and many of it makes sense in my situation, it answers so many of my problems that I have. And since I'm going to the doctor now, if I stop eating wheat and he tests me, then I failed to get recognised as someone who has it even if I do figure this out for myself, I will end up getting no help for it because it cannot be verified. So that is why I can't stop wheat until I have it confirmed, because they need to see that the damage is actually there.

Oh, yes. I agree with not doing anything to jeopardize the test results. I'm also keeping on with eating gluten until I can get tested, too. I hate how it makes me feel, but I want objective, concrete evidence of what I'm observing.
