AMP replied to AMP's topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseThanks for the help! The only thing that's been checked on me is thyroid, testosterone and iron, and of course the ANA. For the first time in 16 years, my iron came back normal! So I guess I thought it might be something else. The information about the Amy's dinners is extremely helpful. I eat them about once a week. I plan to start an Elimination diet tomorrow and I hope it helps. As for cross contamination otherwise, we have done everything to remove gluten from the house as well as all new pots and pans. Thank you!!
I've been strictly gluten-free since February, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I returned to almost normal within a few months. However, the last few months I've been getting worse and worse. My symptoms are very different than before. The running list is: Nausea, fatigue, dull pain under my lower right rib cage (when the doc pushes in it's excruciating and I had my gall bladder removed 10 years ago), Extreme irritability as well as everything seems to make me cry. Not in a bad way, but I empathize with EVERYTHING if I see anything remotely touching I just cry, Extreme Brain fog, I can't seem to speak an intelligent sentence because I use wrong words, Off-balance all the time, Short brain shocks, Acne, and I become very startled with loud noises to the point I cry and my heartbeat just goes crazy, My bones are constantly aching almost like I have the flu, I've always had tingling and numbing in my feet but it is now worse. I have a bit of blurry vision, but don't know if it's just the brain fog. I live in a town where I can't seem to find a great doctor that is familiar with celiac disease. I'm waiting for my ANA results because the doctor initially thought Lupus or MS or Arthritis, and she scheduled a neurology appt in March to rule out MS. I don't really think I have either, but would like your thoughts. I'm desperate to get better because I get married next month and I'm a mess! Has anyone else dealt with these problems after feeling healed? If so, what was wrong? Any suggestions on where I can go from here? I was better before I went gluten free and I hate how it's changed me. I would really appreciate some feedback on what I should do next... Thanks!!
