  1. hi everyone, I have no idea if I have celiac's or not, but my grandmother had it... so I am thinking its a possibility? Anyway.. for years and years and years and years I've had pretty much constant vaginosis. So I wondered if anyone had that as a symptom? The only symptom is discharge. I've been to the doctor for it. I get antibiotics, it goes away for a few days, then comes back. anyway fighting that for years I finally gave up, doctors pretty much gave me the run around on it. I decided I had to live with it. I have always been so consumed with that problem that I never paid much attention to my other problems.. Now I kind of wonder if they could be related. The other biggie in my life is that I've always had stomach problems. Normal for me means loose stools. If I can manage to go every day I'm happy, but its always loose. Or the other is that I wont go for days and it will be the opposite, constipation. So I know thats not normal. But I've lived with it for as long as I can remember. Then my other problem that I have that I wonder if is related is that I'm dizzy a lot. I don't know what causes that, vitamin deficency? well I don't know if thats enough to warrant a check for gluten intolerance or not. But I started wondering if all this is caused by food intolerance and my mom said that my grandmother had celiac's so I thought I'd come here and ask if anyone thinks this sounds at all like celiacs. I want to go to the doctor, but I'd like to have an idea of what to ask him to check for because I have no insurance and I really can't afford the doctor's visit but I really feel like I must be damaging myself to be living with these problems for years and years. So I plan to go, but I want something to ask about.
