  1. Yes that makes perfect sense. It's quite frightening that things can be going very wrong in your own body and you may have no idea it's happening.
  2. Hi cyclinglady, That is quite shocking to hear that. Were you surprised by the diagnosis or did you suspect that you might have had Celiac disease?
  3. Hi and thank you so much. You are all very kind and supportive. I will check out the post. Thanks again. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  4. Thank you, I have bouts of itchiness with no visible signs, irritability, I've lost 1 stone in weight, but find my appetite has increased since started folic acid supplements. I am hoping the results of my tests will be back today. Thank you all so much for your help and advice. Not sure if I am replying to you or to myself as new to the site lol ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜
  5. Thank you, Yes I know there are loads of other symptoms.. I also have Fibromyalgia and arthritis, depression, anxiety, neuropathy symptoms etc.. Can I ask what your initial symptoms were?

  7. Hello, I'm Mags and I've just joined up, I had bloods done a few weeks ago as I was experiencing some neuropathy symptoms. Seems I have Folate deficiency anemia. My folate level was 2.4 and my B12 was 318 ( normal range) I've been told but don't know about my iron levels. My GP decided to do blood test and stool sample for celiac disease. The bloods were sent off on Thursday the 7th and stool sample a few days after. I checked on Friday and results still aren't back yet. My symptoms are bloating, excessive wind, severe abdominal pain usually at night/early hours of the morning, followed by terrible sweats and diarrhea. The abdominal pain and diarrhea. doesn't happen all the time so I always put it down to undiagnosed IBS. I do remember as a child around 7 years old, running home from school because of cramps followed by terrible diarrhea which ran down my legs as I ran home. Also when I was a teenager in school it happened again but I just about made it to the toliet and the smell was atrocious. Does it sound like IBS or Celiac disease? Would appreciate some of your thoughts on this. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜
