funkflex posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hi, fellow celiacs I have some questions on how this celiac thing is going to work out. Hopefully there´s someone out there with a story similar to mine: The first two and a half months on the gluten free diet, I felt crap basically. Two weeks ago I started sleeping less and being able to do more during the day. Then came this weekend and I am feeling crap again with balloon-belly and constipation. During the night I wake up every three hours because I am so thirsty and my mouth feels dried out. I then drink a litre or so of water, eat a couple of prunes to help get my system working, go to sleep again and repeat until morning. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 3 months ago by gastroscopy with "moderate atrophy Marsh 3b". Anti-deaminated gliadin IgG was 49 in September 2012 (down to 11 in January this year). I am a male in his mid twenties. The celiac was discovered after me being ill and partially bedridden during two years, for what doctors thought was "postviral fatigue syndrome". I have no other known illnesses. I regularly drink probiotics and try to keep a high-fibre diet. I work around two hours from home every day and do very little apart from that. If I talk too much I become hoarse and feel thirsty again. If I try to exercise more than a brief swim once a week, my limbs become heavy and I just start feeling incredibly tired. Staying out of bed then turns into an exercise in determination and self-discipline. After years of being ill I want a social life, be able to do sports and to get ahead in my career like everyone else. WHEN will there be an end to this? WHY am I tired, constipated, bloated and extremely thirsty? HOW will I know if I am heading in the right direction recoverywise?
