I am 49 female and I think I am about to lose my mind. Have had GI symptoms for several months, nausea and stomach pain after eating and constant diarrhea for no good reason. Recently dx with type 2 diabetes and controlling with diet and A!C down significantly since dx due to change to diabetic diet and then I get this recurring rash which I had exactly a year ago and I have patches of blisters on my knee foot, face, ankle and several fingers and toes and it itches like crazy and the pictures on the internet of DH look exactly like what I have except mine is less severe but it is spreading. My face feels sunburnt and under my eyes are all red and puffy and my eyelids are swelling. Even my ears feel red and hot and I have patches of red in my eyebrows even. My nose is also completely red and I have several lesions on my face. Made apt with family dr but not the one I normally go to bc he was out into March and I can't wait or handle this itching until then. The one I am seeing is a little jerk but of course had availability and I have dx myself anyway. With all those symptoms I am pretty sure I have celiac. Question is if he won't order blood work or biopsy of skin I will have to go see a specialist and from all the reading U of C in Chicago has a great department for this and it is an hour from where I live in Indiana so I can go there. I figure tho it will take several weeks to get in there so in the meantime what do iI do. If I go gluten-free now and/or convince Dr. Jerk to give to Dapone will my test results be inaccurate or falsely negative bc I have been gluten-free and taking the medication for a while? I want an accurate dx and I just have to ask this Dr. Jerk to do what I want and hope I can get in fast at UC So questions is what to do before get to UC and Is UC as good as it appears to be from my reading. If Dr. Jerk won't give me any blood work orders, biopsy or even Dapone what else can I do to combat the rash but also have correct results and UC? Any help is appreciated. I am so upset and can't work like this and well you all know the story, I will lose my business and my house and everything. PLEASE HELP I NEED ADVICE!! Thanks. Crystal. The main thing I need is just for this itching and burning to go away !!
