Could this be Celiac that I have?

Alrighty. I've always been as thin as a rake and can never put on weight. It didn't bother me at first but now I'm desperate to find out why, and I've also been desperate to find out why I'm in pain almost every month.

About seven years ago I started getting severe stomach pains which have got worse over the past year. I used to only get a pain on the upper right of my abdomen, but now its on the lower left. The lower-left pain more or less cripples me and can only be relieved by two Co-Codamol; Paracetamol alone have no affect. On top of that I am always tired, feeling bloated most of the time and never have the appetite to eat much.

I've had a ultrasound and recently a blood test to check for anaemia (had it on Friday so need to wait a few weeks for the result). The ultrasound showed nothing.

I just really want a reason for feeling so...crappy. Any ideas?

It is possible that it is Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. The only two ways to find out is to have lab work done specifically to check for it or, you can go completely gluten free and see if you notice a significant improvement in your symptoms.

Another thing to consider and that you should be tested for if you haven't already, is possible hyperthyroidism. Good luck.
