I had to be on other Meds to help my other psych issues for 2 years before she would consider that my lack of motivation was an issue that was not going away. I specifically asked for the adderall 2 years ago when I first saw my dr. and even though I had been on it before and it was documented, she refused to give it to me! I was so annoyed back then as I knew I would be better off on it, but what could I do other than sound like a drug crazed crazy person, lol?! I had even worse motivation 2 years ago, not wanting to move from the sofa to take care of the simplest of things, ugh I've been on a real roller coaster ride inside my head for too long. I'm just glad my husband hasn't given up on me.
You had a positive on the celiac blood test, right? So, based on the algorithm, you should proceed to biopsy.
Now, keep in mind that the small intestine is vast (size of tennis court). So, even if negative, your GI may recommend trialing the gluten-free diet. (You could just be in the early stages of development). The goal though is to get well. Keep that in mind.
