Does This Sound Like Celiac?

Hi,

Just wondering if my symptoms rings true with any of you as Coeliac. I have autoimmune thyroid problems, so always put some symptoms down to that although being treated - and have recemtly been also diagnosed with Ulcerative proctitis. Anyway:

Tiredness / fatigue

Terrible memory - feel 'stupid', lose words.

Feel low sometimes

Some nausea

Heartburn

Belching and Flatulence

Bloating

Loose and bleeding stools (proctitis)

Gripy tummy

Neropathy in hands, arms, feet

Obesity

Sweating

Periodic unexplained skin rashes

Boils all over scalp

Yellowing of teeth (started about a year AFTER giving up smoking

Some hair loss

Low Iron, Folate and Vit B12

I think that's more or less it. I don't have these symptoms all the time - they come and go. I definitely think I have an issue with wheat, but whether it's Coeliac or not.. I am having a endoscopy on Friday - the doc wanted to rule out Coelic as a cause of the proctitis as I mentioned to him that I read there was a link. I did have some blood tests done years ago which were negative, but the Doc said the tests I had done were uinreliable.

I'm a bit worried about the endoscopy too. Anxious about gagging...

Any thoughts gratefully received! Thanks,

Victoria

Mind you I'm not a doctor, just a random crazy person on the Internet, but every single one of those sound like symptoms of celiac/coeliac disease. Um, here; the non-crazy persons on the Internet:

Thanks for your response. Well - test on Friday, so I guess I'll know for sure then. I definitely know / feel at wheat is a problem, but a diagnosis would be good, as otherwise I think I'll struggle to be wHEAT / gluten free. keep you posted!

Thanks,

Victoria
