  1. Thank you for all of the help. I have not had those tests done, but I'll be sure to do so.
  2. I've been on a gluten-free diet for close to nine months now, yet I'm still experiencing symptoms I had prior to my diagnosis. Joint pain still appears and fades frequently. I was tested for rheumatoid arthritis and the test was negative, so that's not it. I'm often backed up, going to the bathroom only every 2-3 days. I also seem to have extremely poor circulation and I am always freezing. Last week, it felt like a rubber band was wrapped tightly around my right knee, causing a ridiculous amount of pain from the knee down. I always feel weak and fatigued. I'm only 17-years-old and I feel as if I'm falling apart. Is there possibly something more to this than just celiac disease?
