  1. I am a 29 year old female and I feel awful. I constantly feel like I can't breathe, I have moments of feeling "surreal," I am tired all of the time, I have severe IBS, am lactose intolerant, I have aches and pains in my joints and neck and I don't have insurance. The breathing issue happens every day and usually multiple times a day anywhere from a couple minutes to a couple hours in length. I can't remember the last time I woke up feeling refreshed. I had a blood test for Celiac Disease many years ago, but it was negative. I was being treated for IBS and GERD while I had insurance more recently, but, since I told the doctor I had already tested negative for celiac disease, it did not come up again. Things seem to be getting progressively worse to the point that I feel like I'm dying. I'm really scared and confused. Hopefully I will have insurance again soon, but I am considering trying to go gluten and lactose free to see if I get any relief in the interum. If anyone has any suggestions for me, I'd really appreciate it.
