Hi, I'm new and looking for other's experience and advice. I recently went to the dr., due to having extreme fatigue for several months. Much to my surprise, my blood count/ hemoglobin was extremely low, so much that I needed 2 blood transfusions . I was shocked! Have always been slightly anemic, but nothing like that. Found out later, my iron and vitamin D were also low. Got a referral to see a GI dr. and went there this week. He wants me to have an endoscopy, colonoscopy and Celiac blood test, which is what brought me here! I had that done and am awaiting results.The endo is scheduled for next week. so I was extremely surprised about the celiac testing, it's something that really wouldn't have crossed my mind. Aside from the anemia, fatigue and vit. deficiency, I haven't noticed many other symptoms. I have had some heartburn lately and started taking acid reducers, also insomnia and headaches. But no GI symptoms really, unless I drink a few beers, then I feel extremely bloated with a stomach ache. Anyone else have this type of experience prior to diagnosis?
