After having been really ill for a year (aching joints, tiredness, bad skin, hair loss, hormonal issues) - I was finally diagnosed as having Coeliac by my third consultant. My biopsy in November confirmed it and I have been on a gluten-free diet for just over a month.
I was kind of hoping that I would start to feel better fairly quickly, but it seems to be just the opposite. Through the whole last year I've managed to keep my spirits fairly high and not let the tiredness get to me - but the last two weeks I have been able to get out of bed and have slept in very late day after day for the first time ever in my life.
I've started on Iron, Calcium, Vitamin D and Folic Acid on the reccommendation of my specialist, so think I am doing all the right things... Has anyone else experienced this please? Is it meant to get worse before it gets better?
Thank you all for your kind help
