I was diagnosed with Celiac 2 1/2 yrs ago after yrs of misdiagnosis. I was so happy to finally get a answer and have it confirmed that there was a problem and that I wasnt crazy that I didn't research or take it seriously. When a permanent migraine developed I researched and have been gluten free...for the most part...for over a yr. I was malnurished at time of diagnosis and put weight on during the time I wasn't glutten free. I had fatigue as well as the migraines. B12 was checked a yr ago and was normal as well. In the last 6 months fatigue is now exhaustion, every muscle in my body aches, my legs swell, my skin is dry and wrinkled and if its not 80° or more I am freezing! My gp drew blood yesterday to check my thyroid. Also, in a mater of a few months of going glutten free, i am back at my malnurished weight without calorie restrictions. I think my weight was fluid weight. After yrs of dealing with drs and wrong answers, I have little faith in them. I KNOW when something is not right! I am also bad about waiting too long before I go in. I hoping these blood test will at least point him it the right direction. Should I be going to my gastro Dr for answers and not my gp? I am so frustrated a yr later.
