  1. DH and anxiety? Does anybody have any thoughts or knowledge on a relationship between increase in anxiety/phobias and gluten? I'm only just into the diagnosis stage yet but I've upped my gluten in take x 10 the past few months leading up to my blood tests today and my anxiety (to be precise cleithrophobia...
  2. Hi! Please check out the Dermatitis Herpetiformis forum on this website. I'm currently in the early stages of being tested/diagnosed. DH is skin presentation of coeliac and some people's can resemble dishydrotic eczema but is often very itchy, bilateral and sometimes painful. I'm not an expert at...
  3. Thank goodness you got a Dr in the end that recognised what was happening! I will have to see what my bloods show in January, I really hope they show coeliac, not because I want it but because I feel that's what this is! A fair few people yourself included Barbie have said my elbows remind...
  4. Thank you squirmingitch I had my Drs app on Wednesday, it was over in 5 minutes after he looked at my pictures,heard my family history he booked me in for bloods for Coeliac and Hashimotos in the New Year. I'll wait and see what the results are (should have them by mid January) and I'll book a Drs...
  5. Hi Barbie thanks for sharing your pictures and story! I'm glad gluten-free and dapsone have finally gotten you relief. How many years did you suffer with this? I've just finished a flare up of this as yet undiagnosed rash so I've the Dr booked me in for bloods tests in the NewYear although Awol...
  6. Thank you for all the feedback so far guys! ❤ I finally had my initial Dr appointment this afternoon. I walked in and said I'd like to be tested for DH/Coeliac. He took a look at my pictures (elbows, fingers, back), I gave him a 30 second outline of family history (various autoimmune incl. Crohn's...
  7. Thanks Victoria. I never scratch my elbows (just run my fingers around the outside as I feel v.uneasy about scratching the bumps, like sickened, so it stops me scratching and my elbows are the least itchy). However when it's on my lower back or both calves I scratch like crazy!!! Could it...
  8. Thank you for the tips! Fingers crossed at the Drs app tomorrow they'll refer me for the bloods and/or biopsy and I'll continue on my gluten and add more iodine in the waiting time leading up!
  9. DH exacerbated by sweat? Any relation/connection there in your experienced opinions? If I flare up on my (as yet unidagnosed) lower back, it's hugely aggravated by exercise as I sweat on my lower back when I run so it makes it even itchier (100 times itchier)!! My youngest said it looks like "bubble...
  10. I've been watin I've been eating gluten my whole life (pretty much) and I meant that the last 4 weeks especially (when my rash was flared up again and I was led the possibility of DH) I've eaten more gluten then normal everyday in preparation for getting tested at some point as I've read...
  11. Thanks for that info. Really helpful. I've been eating gluten everyday for about 4 weeks now and prior to me even considering DH I was regularly eating gluten unaware that it could be the problem!
  12. Hi all! I've had invaluable feedback on my first post "Look like DH? Bilateral Itchy Bumpy Elbows" where I've outlined my symtpoms and family history. My elbows are in "remission" following 5 weeks of bumpy rash, just in time for me to attend my Dr appointment on Wednesday. Luckily I have lots...
  13. Hi All! I've had a chat on the phone to my mum in advance of my Drs appointment on Weds. Confirmed my family history: Mum = Hashimotos Thyroiditis Lactose intolerant Gluten intolerant IBS IgA Nephropathy (Kidneys) Diabetes Uncle: Crohns Disease & Coeliac ...
