After around 6 years of complaining of bloating, cramps, unbelievable fatigue and a multitude of other symptoms I have finally been diagnosed with Coeliac. I've been gluten free now for about a month and while I feel a little better I'm still not back to normal (well normal for me anyway!)
I'm currently awaiting appointments to see a skin specialist (as they think I may also have Dermatitis herpetiformis), and one for a bone scan. I've also had blood tests to check on my nutrient levels (iron, calcium etc)
I feel a little overwhelmed by the whole thing to be honest. The gluten free diet is ok I can cope with that, but all the other things I was told that it can affect has really surprised me.
Sorry I'm waffling here, but trying to explain to someone who hasn't got coeliac what it's like is hard.
