I was diagnosed with coeliac disease in 1970 aged one. I'm 42 now and for the first 39 years of having this condition didn't suffer any other additional health problems. On turning 40 almost overnight my health deteriorated with the onset of Uveitis, bowel problems indicative of Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis and joint/skin/thyroid problems. The initial flare up lasted three months and left me feeling exhausted. At one point last year I was under four different 'ologists' at my local hospital, Wirral - who despite many blood tests and scans/colonoscopies - could find nothing other than a blood result of HLA B27 positive. I spent a year off work and had just started to feel better when last week the uveitis flared again, followed by joint pain and skin problems. I'm back on steroid eye drops and dilating drops but have no diagnosis. I have been to my GP today and asked what she thinks, to be told its definitely auto immune disease, maybe anklosing spondylitis to reactive arthritis... I'm in a nightmare
Has anybody else had similar to me?
