  1. I don't eat eggs or yogurt, I do take a supplement though and I can't imagine a B12 deficiency could affect me for so long, could it?
  2. I've struggled for about 2 years on/off with bladder and digestive issues (feelings like recurring UTI's but there's never any cultures in the urine tests). I've had multiple urine tests all coming back negative, at first it was thought to be interstitial cystitis, but then that was cleared. I took prescription Vesicare for a while for it but that didn't help. My bladder was tested to see if its emptying properly and it was cleared. I have possible bladder spasms. My kidneys were also tested and cleared. I've had a blood test recently (not for celiac) with low counts of most everything except high CRPs (attacking something in my body). I've recently, 6 months ago, started having pretty bad, itchy, red and dry breakouts on my chin and the antibiotic and topical gel from the doctor hasn't helped any.... dermatitis?? I'm not sure. I've had problems digesting protein for about 3 months, I cannot have any protein at all (I'm vegetarian so my protein is soy, pea and rice based) or my stomach gets extremely bloated to the point of discomfort and I get gas and have digestive problems. I couldn't eat dairy but am taking a daily probiotic so its now alright. The past week or so I've been SO lethargic, no matter how much sleep I get, dizzy when I get up sometimes, moody, with a really really foggy head and exhausted muscles. I usually have tons of energy. I have been gluten-free for two days just as a little experiment and I'm feeling a little bit better. I usually eat organic rolled oats for breakfast every morning, but I haven't been doing that and have more energy in the morning, but oats aren't gluten free? I feel like my skin, my bladder and my stomach issues all have to be related, and the thing I keep coming across is celiacs. Can anyone off the top of their head tell if this sounds like celiac? thank you
