It definitely sounds like you've got a lot of symptoms that many people on this board experience as a result of their Celiac or gluten intolerance. It couldn't hurt to see your doctor and ask for a blood test/Celiac panel.

Diagnosed with IBS - Fall 2007

Diagnosed with Celiac via blood test (tTg off the charts) - March 18th, 2011

Gluten free as of March 25th, 2011 and going strong!

Positive biopsy April 1st, 2011


Blood test results back down to normal levels November 2012

Don't go gluten free yet even though it may be tempting because you will feel better (I'm sure you know that). You have almost all of the same symptoms I do. I will never get diagnosed because I started gluten free first and I will never go back to eating gluten so I can get tested. But yes, your symptoms sound very much like mine...stick it out hopefully the end is near!:-)

While the more common presentation in celiac disease is being underweight due to malabsorption, some people gain weight due to celiac disease, and lose it after going gluten-free. Sadly, there are still some doctors out there who believe that if you are overweight you can not have celiac disease. :angry:


Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Type 1 (autoimmune) diabetes diagnosed in March 1986

I was shocked my doctor even agreed to test me with my weight issue. I think I'll cry if I'm not a celiac. It means I have all these problems listed above plus some and no answers as to why
