Hi, I'm new to this forum and would appreciate any help with my query.. I don't think I am celiac but think I may be gluten intolerant/sensitive. Basically I've had really bad c for the past few years, really hard and dry, plus bloating, gas, mucus and occasional d. Always had a sluggish bowel but the past few years have been pretty awful with straining etc. I recently went on a gluten free diet for a month and felt much better, although still far from perfect, but I had much less bloating etc. I went back on the gluten a few days ago and yesterday I felt awful, extremely tired, sluggish and brain fog, felt like I'd been hit on the head with a cricket bat. I'm back on the G free diet now.. saw the doc last week and he thinks I've got IBS, said they can't test for celiac unlesss I'm eating gluten. So, I'm now taking Mebeverine that relaxes the bowel and stops spasms. Haven't noticed much difference yet but only been taking the tabs for 3 days.
I do have an underactive thyroid for which I've been taking Thyroxine for past 20 years. Also got hay fever and dust allergy so may be prone to allergies? Any light thet anyone can shed on my condition I would really appreciate, thanks.
