i think i might be gluten intolerant but not sure.

I have never really been able to eat much bread or plasta it always left me blotted and full, but last year i was taken it to hospital with an infected gall bladder due to tables i was taken for back pain.

since then i have been have these problems and think it is gluten intolerance.

stomach cramps

dizzy spells

blotted can go up 1 to 2 dress sizes in a few days

tired all the time

sore muscles

constipation then diarrhea

dry itchy skin

mood swings

at first i thought i might be preg but have got about 10 test over the last 6 months all neg, then my mum said to come off gluten and see if that works and i have felt a lot better. (i eat well but i find it hard some times to find stuff that has no gluten in it e.g had sushi the other day because i thought it would be safe but looked on the packet and it has gluten in it)

im not one for going to the doc unless i really need to, feel like wasting their time if i dont have an arm falling off or something like that lol

what do u think should i go and get tested

thanks

michelle

Yes, Michelle, I think you should go and get tested. And resume eating gluten right away until all testing is completed because not eating gluten can skew your results. You are not wasting the time of the doctors - that is what they are there for, to keep you well. Think of them as the fence at the top of the cliff rather than the ambulance at the bottom :D

thanks

im going to phone the docs todays and ask for the test.

I am 38y/o and spent my life time avoiding breakfast and didn't like pizza, toast/sandwich or pasta. Test now and quickly. And then keep avoiding everything your body/brain tells you too.

I went to work in a bakery and it was a disaster waiting to happen that I am now glad did.

I think I might have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity too. I know how hard it is to explain it to people who know nothing about it and it can be especially intimidating to try to explain your feelings to a doctor. I'm having that same issue right now and I think its just the personality of some doctors to make you feel like you are wasting their time. I try to not let that get to me because after all its your health. I wish you the best of luck.
