  1. I'm sorry you had to go through that! It is so frustrating. Thank you for your suggestions. I'm going to get a second opinion.
  2. Thank you for the advice. He did do the blood test for my thyroid so hopefully he can get that on track. I was diagnosed about 5 years ago and still have not gotten my levels right. I'm going to ask around to see if anyone I know has a Dr that knows about celiac's.
  3. I just left the Dr's office. He said he doubts my symptoms are related to gluten....supposedly I have too many ailments for them to be linked to gluten. He didn't even want to do the test. I love my Dr, he has been amazing up until now. Should I go ahead with the gluten free diet to see for myself if it works for me? It's s healthy lifestyle anyway right? Thank you all so much for your input. I greatly appreciate all the help!!!
  4. Hi everyone! I am completely new to gluten free living. I have severe hypothyroidism, fibromylgia, an anxiety/depression disorder and some other smaller problems. Through research I have found that gluten can attack the thyroid and cause fibro and depression symptoms to worsen. I went gluten free last Monday. My main question is how long does it usually take to start feeling a difference? Is it different for everyone? I was gluten-free for 5 days and then slipped up and had a good amount of gluten this weekend. I now am very itchy and have a very upset stomach. Could these be from the gluten even though I have only been gluten-free for 5 days? Thanks for the help!!!!
