Unhappy Please read and help.

Hi, my name is angela and im a 22 year old female. Almost four years ago i started to severely suffer from multiple different symptoms.
- Fatigue
- Diareah
- Chronic Cough + chest congestion
- Sinus headaches
- Gas, bloating, and belching
- Anxiety and mood swings
- Unable to stay awake during the day and not being able to sleep during the night

& much more. I suffered from all these symtoms, it got so bad i started going to the walk in clinic once a week. I was reffered to several specialists and had lots of testing done but all my tests came back negative.
The doctors were all leaning towards celiac disease but all the tests were negative. They had no answer for me. Finally my mom sent me to go to a naturalpath and he ran blood work and told me i had a sensitivity to wheat rye barely and oats. I immediately went on a gluten free diet and have been on one for almost two years now. Being on the gluten free diet cleared up all my symptoms basicaly.

The problem that i am facing now is that i am getting monthly flares ups.
The symptoms consist of:
EXTREME FATIGUE- can hardly move or work
MUSCLE PAIN AND WEAKNESS
SORE SWOLLEN THROAT

these symtoms last for 3-5 days and then im fine the rest of the month.
i see my doctors during these flare up and they still have no idea what is wrong with me. i get the exact flare up every single month. it might worsen right before my menstrual cycle. i want to try going off the birth control pill.
Today i went to the doctor and he is now saying it could be do to chronic fatigue syndrom.

PLEASE HELP.
im so tired of being sick and tired.

Re: Please read and help.

It might be a good idea to stop that particular birth control pill if it can cause such side effects, some of them are more harmful than good. I also hear your story, and think oh god no. When this started with me, I would get fatigued off and on, until one day it became an every day never ending hell. I was diagnosed with CFS & Fibromyalgia. But I have an autoimmune disease, and that is why I'm so tired. Have them do an ANA test, you might be at the beginning stage of it. And have your vitamin levels checked, I had both low vit d and b-12 and had muscle weakness from it. You also need to find out if you have something like chronic bronchitis, make sure your lungs are okay, with that chronic cough & congestion.
