  1. Hi all, Here's a brief description of symptoms I've been experiencing: Occasional diareha but a constant need to empty my bowels. When I do empty my bowels the smell is really bad. I am constantly flatulent. I often have a foggy feeling in my mind and I can't think very straight at times. I'm constantly hungry. My muscles in my legs/arms often twitch or spasm. It doesn't hurt but its kind of annoying. I don't sleep very well. I've had some or all of these symptoms on and off for around 2 years. I recently went to the doctor and they took a blood test for Graves but this came back negative. I suggested Celiacs disease to my doctor but she said that I would have shown up as anaemic when they did the blood test. Is this true - can Celiacs be ruled out with a blood test. I don't feel very confident with what I'm being told. I feel as though I could have Celiacs and I'm really frustrated. Do people think I should seek a 2nd opinion. Am I better to go for an alergy test or to see a different doctor? Thanks
