Hello I am new to this site and just wanted to fill you in on my problems and just see what you all think??
Since i was about 12 years old, i have suffered with IBS, sickness, diarreah/constipation (never normal always one or the other), bloating, dizzyness on and off, having to go to toilet in the middle of a meal (to which my Dad always says thats impossible your food doesnt go through you that quickly!!) anyways, when i reached about 17 i was diaganosed with Overactive Thyroid very low Iron , B12 Deficiency and Pernicious Anemia, to which i have tablets and the B12 Injection every 12 weeks (although i think i need it every 8-10 weeks-ongoing battle with doctor) my stomach is so sensitive i swear i can get ill watching other people eat something. The list of symptoms grew, arthritus, psoriasis, gallbladder pain(had scan nothing was wrong), very bad pain on left hand side that goes into my back and hip and also rumbles VERY LOUDLY from directly where the pain is, very heavy periods that become irregular at times then sort themselves out etc, the list goes on and on, anyway had a biopsy it came back negative for Celiacs, had so many blood tests that actually not sure if they have done the Celiacs blood test, went to the doctors last tuesday (4th April) and my doctor said she is 100% i have Celiacs but because the biopsy came back negative "lets just call it an intolarence" and go gluten free, which i have done. I am waiting for an appointmnt to come through with a dietcian.
So my question is what do you all think? Celiacs or not? or does it matter if i know the difference as they both have the same treatment i.e. Gluten free diet?
My personal opinion is that i am Celiacs but would really like to know??
Thank you for taking the time to read this very very long post lol
