lilyrose3 posted a topic in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsMy entire life I've been dealing with what I now know is reactive hypoglycemia. I vividly remember eating a ton in the morning because I was scared of getting "woozy" and not having snacks prepared during elementary school. I also remember nearly passing out several times in P.E. class just two hours after lunch. Over the years I've managed it by having snacks and protein with each meal, but it's been getting more difficult as I've gotten older. My mom has the same thing and she gets woozy pretty often. She said her mother dealt with it, too. I thought this could be something related to diabetes, but after I posted on a diabetes forum, I had someone ask if I had been tested for gluten intolerance or thought about it. So, I'm bringing my symptoms here to see if any of this sounds like an intolerance. I am so tired of having digestive problems and I don't know what to do. Here are my other symptoms: *I have dealt with anorexia since I was 13 (currently 18), but I've been doing well for this past year, so new foods/normal amounts of food/eating out really shouldn't be bothering my stomach this much anymore. I've never experienced a regular period since I started starving myself soon after I first got it. When I was recovered the first time, before a relapse, I had a couple of irregular periods. Since my second recovery, I STILL have not regained my period. It has been over a year and my nutritionist seemed stumped. I have since stopped seeing her and am eating quite normally and freely as I used to and have gained weight recently just to see if that could help. Still nothing. In the mornings I'm usually very full, kind of nauseous, hot, and thirsty. I feel sick after eating a lot, or even "normal" amounts when I go out with friends. I have stomach cramps/sharp pains, extreme gas all day and everyday, suuuuuper bloated all the time, reflux, nausea, sometimes constipation, fatigue, my finger and toes often tingle, mouth ulcers, headaches...when I was younger I had "chicken skin" on the backs of my arms, which has since gone away. I also am diagnosed with anxiety. There's honestly more symptoms but I can't list them all. To sum it up, my stomach is upset all the time and I am always bloated no matter how long ago I ate/how nutritionally dense the food was. *forgot to mention, I'm also lactose intolerant, just like my mom. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
