I have posted before regarding my daughter who has celiac disease.
Although I have had the usual test at the Doctors twice for C.D. they have come back negative but I am now wondering if I am gluten intolerant.
I do eat bread every day and pasta once or twice a week.
My question is if you are gluten intolerant can the symptoms come and go.
I seem to have episodes whereby I do not have any symptoms for a couple of weeks the suddenly I feel as if I have got a tummy bug. I feel bloated, nauseous, go to the toilet a lot more and the motions are loose, I feel fatigued and also feel quite depressed. This can last a few days then I feel back to normal.
Two weeks ago I had the symptom for a few days, last week I did not have them then again today I have them really bad. I also have numb feelings in hands and feet.
This weekend I did eat a lot of pastry as well as the usual bread, and I am now thinking if I get the episodes when I have had an overload of gluten. Can this happen ?
I also periodically get a few blister like spots on my chin and sometimes my fingers which itch quite badly and wonder if this is the type of rash gluten can cause, again this comes and goes.
I also have an underactive thyroid which I take levothyroxine.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
Thank you browny
