I’m not sure if i have celiac or not, no diagnosis.
I’m not sure if i have celiac or not, no diagnosis as yet. I went to see my gastro yesterday and left feeling rather deflated.
So I’ll give you some back story, sorry if it’s long, I’m now 40 years old, I’ve already been diagnosed with an arthritic condition, and under a rheumy for that.
Between bloods for them and gp they noticed i have a fluctuating ALT, so they sent me to gastro for liver tests, after a biopsy i have no fatty liver disease or anything else wrong. So yesterday was my first appt after my biopsy in march.
My daily symptoms are: painful joints (presumably due to the arthritis), higher stomach pains, loose stools ( to the point some days I’m scared my wind isn’t only going to be wind ?), bloated, wind, tired, headaches, dizziness, depression, recurrent carbuncles.
In my 20s I had 2 miscarriages and two of my children were low birth weights. I was also HPV positive for years, with recurrent abnormal smears.
So my questions are, is it possible to go this long before a diagnosis is thought of? I’ve also struggled with being slightly overweight for years, so is it possible to be malnourished and over weight? And my consultant has agreed to test me, but said to leave it 5 months and to do the tests before my next 6 monthly review, is that normal practise ??
Sorry for the long post, but left feeling really crappy after my appt yesterday.
