Does This Sound Like Celiac Disease To You?

Recommended Posts

For my entire life (I'm a 37 year old male) I can recall I have had

the following symptoms:

Constant exhaustion (ready for bed 2 hours after I get up)

Constant, deep depression

Unable to think clearly

No energy

Unable to lose weight no matter how much I exercise or change my eating habits

Dark circles under my eyes

Stuffy nose, I thought may have been stress triggered

Horrible constipation, but NEEDING to rush to the bathroom 8-9 times a

day to only produce air (sorry, gross, I know, this started when I started my CPAP treatment in 2006 and have been 100% compliant)

Painful cramps and stomach bloating

Always hungry. Always. Cannot eat enough.

Ice pick migraines and constant low, buzzing head aches.

Sick a lot

Have trouble functioning at night outside, hard to drive, it's like I

get confused or something.

Nothing I have ever tried, whether it's CPAP, mood stabilizers, anti

depressants, intense exercise, eating healthier, etc has worked. To

the point I am disgusted with the medical community and off and on


Been diagnosed with: bipolar, Apnea, MS, areophagia and hypoglycemia.

Does it sound like celiac? I've started cutting glutten and soy out

and minimizing dairy. I keep accidentally dosing myself, but Ive been

trying since Sunday and don't see a lot of change yet. :(

Welcome to the forum justcrash.

Yes, it sounds like you could have celiac or a gluten intolerance. Have you had a blood tests for celiac yet? If you want to have them done you need to still be eating gluten.

Some people start feeling better after a few days or weeks and sometimes it will take a few months.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.
