  1. Thank you so, so much for your reassuring post. I was feeling quite lost. I'll stick to your advice, and in the mean time, I'll browse around the forums. Thanks again.
  2. After exploding in an awful rash about 2 weeks ago, I talked to someone with Celiac disease and they suggested I get tested to see if I am, as well. Symptoms I have include that blistery, itchy rash, dry, flaky scalp, constant fatigue, headaches, lactose intolerance, and what I thought were IBS symptoms- stomach pain, diarrhea, bloating, gas. Have no idea how to go about getting tested, so I just made an appointment with an allergist for this Thursday. Already started to go gluten-free- should I stay on the gluten until the test? The itching and bleeding is unbearable. Also, am I supposed to see a GI doctor instead? Is the allergist the right person to go to first? I am so lost. And miserably itchy. Thanks for the help, in advance..
