Does This Look Like Dh To You?

Recommended Posts

You are absolutely right it will help someone else. There were many times I sat there in the dermatologists office crying and saying that my migraines were connected to the face sores...and my "fibromyalgia" is worse when the sores are there. And I would say "These sores are burning my brain." They would just shake their head and tell the PA who was standing there wanting to help, "She is a skin picker. We call it neurotic excoriation." Then he would turn to me and say, "You see how you are scarring your skin?" and walk out of the room. I was angry because I knew he was wrong but I couldn't explain it. None of it made sense until you look at what Celiac is and what it does. Then it all made sense. My sores didn't look like classical DH either. I'm so glad he brought a few PA's in to look at yours. You probably saved a lot of lives and spared a lot of people misery by letting them see the way your DH presents. Thank God that Dr. recognized your DH.
