Hello Forum! This my first post. I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue in February of 2004. I went to a nutritionist who basically told me what I couldn't eat. I basically taught myself how to eat. I have been feeling better however I have one symptom that I cannot shake - AND it seems the be getting worse. I am extremely fatigued. I actually believe I have developed narcolepsy! I fall asleep instantly anywhere, anytime. I am actually afraid to drive more that a couple of miles at a time because of it.
Another thing is that I cannot stay asleep at night at all. However, I could sleep all day if given the chance. Does anyone else experience this? I am confused, my memory is shot and I have little mini panic attacks throughout the day. I used to be a social butterfly - never able to sit still and waste a moment! Now, (even when I was in Jamaica over Christmas!) I'd rather sleep or just sit around. As a result, my workout regimen has suffered and I've put on a little extra weight. I've always been a healthy eater so it really is just from exhaustion and being completely sedentary. I just feel like - well - crap!
I would like to go back to my doctor (who is my general practitioner) and ask for more help on this but what do you think I should ask for? Tests I mean?
Thanks so much in advance!
