  1. Hi I'm hoping someone out there might be able to give some advice. I am a 46 year old female. I have developed symptoms suggestive of gallbladder problems - pain concentrated over the right side, gas, diarrohea etc. Two lots of ultrasounds have come back negative however. I have been trying to do some research myself on what might be causing my symptoms, and celiac struck somewhat of a cord as I also have joint pain, pernicous anaemia (autoimmune disorder) thyroid antibodies, and malabsorption of calcium and vitamin D leading to bone density loss - my research suggests these are sometimes associated with celiac disease. Plus I have noticed that if I eat products with gluten I seem to start feeling really lousy by which I mean abdominal pain, diarrohea sometimes but other times constipation, tiredness and somewhat dizzy. However the weird symptom is breathlessness, almost like having asthma where I can't seem to get enough air no matter how deep I breathe. This has got both myself and my doctor puzzled, as shortness of breath is not usually associated with digestive disorders. All the normal lung function tests have come back just fine. But the breathlessness and abdominal pain/bloating etc definitely seem to happen together. I'm just wondering whther anyone has ever come across this as a symptom of celiac disease, or am I on the wrong track in pursuing this as a possibility? Also, if anything I am overweight rather than underweight. Is it possible to be overweight and have this disease? Any comments would be appreciated Thanks
