  1. Hi everyone, I'm waiting for the results of my antibodies test to find out if I have celiac disease. I have hypothyroidism (also waiting to find out if it is Hashi's) and PCOS. I found a great endo who decided to test me for celiac disease based on the PCOS and Hypo dx. I've been reading the symptoms and seem to have some of them. When I was growing up, my teeth came in either missing enamel or with holes in them. I have fillings in almost every single tooth. I am always bloated, chronic constipation - I never had a flat tummy no matter how much weight I'd lose. I have really dry skin on my hands and cuticles. My cuticles are always torn and swollen no matter how much I moisturize them. I also get little patches on my hands of peeling skin. The oddest thing is the skin on my right foot. I have really bad peeling and cracking skin, my toenails are pitted and have white spots. I've been checked for fungus - and it isn't that. But it only affects my right foot. I occasionally have itchy spots between my toes and little blisters of clear liquid. I know this is minor compared to other symptoms, but I was wondering if anyone else has had similiar issues with just one foot. Thanks - glad to have found you all! Beth
