Hi Channing, I don't have answers. but I have questions. Have you had genetic testiing for celiac disease. Have you asked for a celiac panel on a blood draw?

You have many common symptoms of someone who could have celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Have you been to a Gastroenteroligist? That's where I would start. Good luck, and welcome to the forum.


Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

Have you ever tried being gluten free?

Certainly all of your symptoms are on the list of Celiac/Gluten Intolerance symptoms.

If you can't or don't want to do the testing, give yourself a good few months being gluten free to see what can resolve if anything.

Your symptoms *could* be Celiac..but they could also be something else, which is why it's hard to know without getting tested.

You should contact your Dr. and request the tests. Once you know for sure you'll know if it would be best to be gluten-free, and if you're Celiac the test results should help you understand you need to say on a gluten-free diet for life. Without the tests you may always wonder...
