I'm a 23y old woman and for roughly 7 years I've been experiencing a whole range of weird symptoms.. here's some of them:
*weight gain for no obvious reason
*muscle and joint aches
* an extremely itchy rash on my butt and when I scratch it clear liquid comes out
*a small calcium deposit in my finger and now near my thumb also
Everything you can imagine has already been checked.. my thyroid probably 10 times, a blood test for Celiac's disease when I was 18 or 19... I've been tested for autoimmune diseases. Nothing. I've worn a 24h heart monitor.
They couldn't come up with a reason for my dizziness either... my blood pressure's just fine.
So I started thinking that it's my diet and the more I read about Gluten sensitivity, the more familiar it sounds. So, now I've been gluten-free for 5 days... and my heart is truly going insane! The sensations are brand new and even more troublesome, like weird electric sensations, heart skips a beat like every 15 seconds... Acid reflux seems like it's even worse. I have to take a BETA BLOCKER even in the privacy of my home cause my heart feels so weird. My dizziness is not as bad though, even though I sometimes do feel like I'm about to pass out... also, two days ago I had a very weird electric sensation in my brain.
So my question is, have any of you had these sensations after going gluten-free? Does this even sound like gluten sensitivity? I'm quite desperate cause I'm totally aware of the fact that doctors don't know anything about gluten sensitivity or gluten intolerance... they hardly know anything about Celiac's disease either, cause it seems a lot of people get tested only to find out their blood test was all good and fine- yet they still continue to have symptoms after eating gluten. Yeah and I'm from Finland so if I make mistakes with my English it's because of that.
