  1. Hello new friends! I'm SO glad I found this forum! My eyes are starting to burn from reading about celiac disease all night (& almost every night for a few weeks) on this here computer screen... Anyways.. I need your help! Do you think I have celiac disease? I've been suffering for so long, and I'm SO tired of people not taking me seriously! I feel like I can't FUNCTION at ALL. It's hard to even focus on writing this post.. Argh! Here are my symptoms: depression anxiety a strange dull itch all over my body that drives me INSANE. (mostly at night) acne NEVER feeling rested/ very sensitive to light sore body headaches SERIOUS BLOATING/gas inability to focus/have a conversation/read....BRAINFOG! weird messed up periods (sometimes I don't get it for months) possibly infertility? D: I swear to you my face looks different depending on what I eat.. it gets itchy, swollen, and just looks....OFF. panic attacks shooting pains in my back/lower abdomen my hands and feet always seem to be cold eczema generally feeling all friggen messed up, all the time. everything stresses me out I'm probably forgetting some symptoms.. I've turned into such a bummer to be around... I just want to function. I don't feel well enough to do anything. I don't have a job. I keep dropping out of college classes because I just can't do it. I do nothing all day long, I get angry & I feel dull and so very frustrated & I just want to sleep forever. I don't want to complain anymore!! I've had these symptoms for many years to a lesser extent, it's gotten a lot worse in the last year and a half.. I moved to the Bay area, I'm vegan... and I discovered gluten "meats". What can I say? ...Ahem. Gluten "drumsticks" weekly for uh, maybe 7 months.. Every time I'd eat out at a restaurant I'd go straight for the dishes with gluten meats in them too. D'oh! I'm also allergic to bananas, avocados, melons, carrots... these are all self-diagnosed. I have never been tested for allergies. Pretty allergic to cats, dogs, bunnies... pets in general. I'm pretty sure my symptoms are caused by allergies! I started my gluten-free diet about a week ago.. made some mistakes though :[ I just want to live & function somewhat normally, darn it. Thank you in advance... (Oops, I meant to post this in pre-diagnosis, testing & symptoms >_< & I just realized I've left a lot of information out... I'm so tired.)
