  1. Okay so basically it was a year ago when I started thinking that I had IBS. However it was about two months ago when I found out that I had a blood test and I am vitamin D deficient and anemic. I do have restless leg syndrome, (which is a symptom for Celiac). I also found out that whenever I ate gluten and wheat, my IBS symptoms were worse. So I went on a gluten free diet for a week and it was amazing. I didn't feel any cramps of bloating... My doctor suggested that I might have Celiac. I had a blood test and it came out negative but she said that they can't rely on just a blood test, so she suggested an endoscopy... At first I was willing to because if I do have Celiac then, I should get diagnosed. However, I am only 16 and I'm not really keen on the idea... I decided that I would have the endoscopy later on when I'm ready but if I do have Celiac and carry on eating gluten, then I could end up with type 1 diabetes and cancer... and that really scared me... I've been eating gluten for a year now since I found out that I might have 'IBS' and so if it is Celiac then... ahhhh I'm so scared. I've decided to go on a strict gluten-free diet but do you think I'm worrying too much or am I doing the right thing? Also... should I have started the diet earlier on? (I'm such a worry bag, I'm so sorry) Thank you so much
