Hello Everyone,

I was on this forum a lot in the fall trying to figure out the terrible symptoms I had been dealing with over the last 20 years or so.

Like many of you I had been tested for so many different diseases and had some pretty awful doctors visits. I had so many of the celiac disease symptoms and was certain that is what I had.

I finally decided to visit a Naturopathic Doctor since I was fed up with the mainstream medical system. She took the time to listen to ALL of my symptoms and said "Lyme Disease, I am certain it is Lyme Disease". I never had a tell tale bulls eye rash or remember a tick bite. Turns out that most of Lyme Disease sufferers never did either. I had the blood test (sent to the USA) and it came back positive. I can't believe I finally have a positive diagnosis.

I just wanted to share my story and thank all of you on this board that were a great source of support and help to me!

Good luck to all of you on your journey.

Thanks for sharing. Many lyme disease sufferers are surprised and, as you say, so many of the symptoms point in the celiac direction. So glad you discovered your problem and hurray for the naturopath!

I had a Lymes test done last March. It was negitive. So i'm stuck with celiac.

Good for you Sir38.

Carry on.
