  1. THanks for your reply!! I was curious about the nausea since it seems to be something new these past few months.
  2. This board is amazing. I've learned so much so far. Thank you. Here are some things that I think point to celiac or gluten intolerance in my body. Your feedback is appreciated. I "accidentally" stumbled upon the possibility of a gluten intolerance as I did the South Beach diet and eliminated certain foods, specifically gluten and sugar. -Fatigue. Not just the typical working-mom of two small kids fatigue. I am always tired. Always. -ADD/ADHD. This is something I have already made an appt. to get checked. It's amazing how this could potentially be linked to celiac and I only learned this after reading these boards. I've struggled with what I thought was depression for a really long time, but I think it is more ADD/ADHD related. -Lower right stomach pain. Also another symptom I read on the site. -Tingling and numbness in my lower legs -Irregular periods. What is strange is that every time I cut gluten out, my cycle will start almost 8 days later. Very odd. This has happened 3 times. -Keratosis pilaris-small bumps on the back of my arms. I also read this could be related to a gluten intolerance. I also have really acne prone skin, but it is not dry. -Night sweats. -Low body temperature. Typically in the 97's -frequent lower back pain -I am of Norther European decent. -My mother has told me my grandmother has an intolerance to gluten, but has never been formally diagnosed. Gosh, as I type all these out I know this has to be what's going on with me! The odd thing is, I don't always have gastrointestinal pain or issues. I have the stomach pains in my right side frequently, but it's not like I am running to the restroom all the time or vomiting. I am constipated more than I have diarrhea usually. A lot of bloating. Lately I have been super nauseous a lot more than normal, but I am transitioning back to gluten free. At this point I am overwhelmed with how to make sure I am completely gluten free. I am doing my best, but learning each day. Thanks for any replies.
