    thank you for all the important information. i will most certainly ask for this next time I go.
  2. Diagnosis: Scabies

    Well i ended up at the ER today because I just couldn't take the itching anymore. I told the NP all of my symptoms and she said that the ER doesn't really know how to treat things like rashes that have been going on for a month (like mine),but only treat rashes that just "popped up". So they gave me some cream for contact dermatitis (Scabies). I told her that this is not scabies, but she didn't listen. UGGGHHH! I wish doctors would actually listen to the patients once in a while and not try to rush them out!
  3. I Want To Know Now!

    I feel so terrible right now. My hands are throbbing, burning and itching. All my joints hurt and my stomach is soo upset, but I haven't eaten anything. THIS BE WHAT DEATH FEELS LIKE! I just wish all of this would go away.

    Hey Ya'll! I'm Paige and I'm new to celiac.com. I started doing research on celiac disease about one month ago. The more and more I read & learn about, the more it feels like I have found what been causing me problems for so long. It all started about when I was 15-16 when I was diagnosed with arthritis & my knees would swell up 3 times there size. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety since I was 12.I have really terrible panic attacks. Now here recently it seems like I have alot more symptoms. I am always itchy and I scratch until I bleed and leave bruises. I have little blisters on my hands & feet that are very painful and itchy. I am always tired, no matter how much or how little I sleep. My teeth are chipping very easily. Sometimes I'm constipated badly and then the next thing I know I am running to the bathroom. When I was 15-16 I was considered to be underweight, but now I am overweight. I have unexplained nosebleeds out of no where. My lips crack in the corners. I have really bad acid reflux. I have insomnia. I get really bad headaches. I have been diagnosed with kidney stones. My periods are very irregular. I have a terrible memory, I can't remember why I walked into the other room.I have tingling in my hands. My doctor ran a standard blood test and my liver function was high. Not only that but the risk factors also run in my family that include: arthritis and type 1 diabetes. I tried to tell my doctor about all of my symptoms, but he didn't seem to interested in how I was feeling.So this is why i'm here to ask all who have celiac disease if it seems like to you (in your opinion)that I have celiac disease? :D PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT!
