  1. Thanks for the posts. I will ask him for the test results and which ones were actually tested. I've looked for what is normal and test levels on the site and can't find any info... I'll ask on Monday when I schedule upper GI that he wants me to do. Thanks again, Dawn
  2. I'm 41 years old and have had most of the Celiac symptoms all of my life. I had horrible anemia when I was young and have battled it forever. I've been diagnosed with PMDD, pre menstral disorder dystphoria. This comes with bloating, horrible mood swings, depression, night sweats, and insomnia. A few years later, hypothyroidism. A few years later the doctor wanted to do a colonoscopy to find out why I had the diarreha so bad and why I was still so anemiac. I was diagnosed with IBS. Two years later planter fascitis. I've since had 2 additional colonascopies due to the fact that my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer and almost died. In September, during my yearly exam, they found all kinds of good information. A breast lump, which turned out to be a large cist. My thyroid is still too low, even though the doc. increased the dose twice. My hemmogolbon is still LOW, still anemiac... and my cholestorol is above 200. So off I was to another colonoscopy. And again nothing found. That doctor suggested to my doc. to test for CELIAC. I could not beleive all of the symptoms that I have had. I have 3 daughters that have had many of these symptoms as well. When I asked my doc. he ordered the tests but didn't seem alarmed at all. Today he called and the tests were all normal. I couldn't beleive it! I thought we finally found out why I have felt SO horrible all of these years. He did order an upper GI to be done next week, but thinks that will turn out ok. Are there any other disorders that are like Celiac? Any other suggestions? This is not something that I wanted to have, however, I was hoping to find an answer......know I feel lost again. Please help, Dawn
