iwillmoveamountain replied to norahsmommy's topic in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsI know this post is extremely old but I don't think thats true. After being vegan for 3 1/2 years I ate a turkey sandwich...and was totally fine. After being gluten free for two weeks, even a breadcrumb could give me severe depression and leave me extremely lethargic and bloated.
Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are: I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active): Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes) Chronic constipation and bloating Acne HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
