Hi everyone , need some help and advice.
I am a 30 year old male from the uk and wanted to know if my symptoms could be Celiac or something else? Also can one night of acute stress and anxiety( 2-3 hours) trigger these symptoms?
about 10 weeks ago I got really stressed one night when I thought I had cancer , next morning went to Doctor and he said all fine.
This is when all my symptoms started.
Started with diarrhoea and then I noticed my sleep was slightly reduced
I started to go running 4-5 days a week( outdoors) to improve my fitness and suddenly woke up one morning with all my joints cracking and popping ( no pain in joints or swelling)
Then a few days later I noticed one of my ears feeling blocked, went to Doctor, he said I have fluid in my left ear, then few days later came tinnitus.. Which I still have.
Doctor said I have a mild flu which my body is trying to fight. Not really sure
I don't really have bad fatigue, do
feel a little more tired ( sleeping 5-7 hours most night), less than before
This all happened in the first 6 weeks.
Then recently I am noticing muscle twitching randomly , and very mild burning sensation in my upper left arm and upper left thigh. Also for 1 or 2 days i got electric shock like sensation for a second or so.. this has gone now
It's not painful but irritating.
I am getting some muscle aches but really mild and rare and it's not in one location, keeps moving around.
I also have weird skin sensations such as ants are moving around and i have noticed i get pressure marks more easily.
I have an appointment booked with neurologist and gastro
All my blood test have come back ok except 1. The most recent test my doctor took showed slightly high IgA levels. This is why Doctor referred me to a gastro.
I don't have ibs or diarrhoea, but have changed bowel habits.
Is this the start of Fibro?
Could this be celiac?
or is it anxiety related
would love to hear what u guys think?
