  1. Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and I am so nervous. Tomorrow I get the bloodwork results back and I am freakedd out that they will all be negative. I fit almostall the symptoms, and the doc suspected Celiac right off the bat. However, it has been so long since I had a doctor not tell me it was all in my head, or that I would feel better if I ate right and exercised. I Do eat right, or what I thought was healthy, including whole grains. However, now I know that may be the problem. I keep tearing up because for the last 6 years I have had these health issues, and no one seems to believe me. I just missed three days of work due to debilitating abdominal pain and diarrhea, and my boss is now concerned about my "work ethic". This really upsets me beacuse now I can add him to the list of people who think I am just a hypochondriac! My symptoms are as follows: Abdominal pain, cramps, diarrhea, constipation (they take turns), decreased appetite, joint pain, severe fatigue, weakness, lack of energy, depression, mouth ulcers, tingling or numbness in extremities, migrain headaches, borborygmi (stomach rumbling), easy bruising, flatulence, fluid retention, extremely foul smelling stools, muscle weakness, nausea, very pale appearance, slight panic attacks, vertigo, obesity, hair loss, itchy skin. I never even linked what I have been going through with celiac. Thank you for reading. Yvette
