I had all similar symptoms plus fibromyalgia--widespread pain, tenderness, headaches, brain fog--awful awful stuff. I have been gluten free for a year and don't miss it at all. Seriously. I don't.
Within 1 month I was improved and within 3 months 100% GF I felt much better. I have learned to bake and cook gluten free and while it was a challenge, it's made it a lot more fun. I went the extra mile and also am doing GAPS diet (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) and that's helped resolve the rest and any recurring sx's. It's brilliant and wonderful for actually HEALING the gut.

Anyways, best of luck!

I love to cook and bake. I have compiled hundreds of recipes on Pinterest: Crowd pleasers: Traditional & Lightened versions of timeless favorites, as well as: gluten free, vegan, Paleo & Grain-Free... and a ton of Scones and desserts.

Thanks for the the replies everyone! I'm trying to get a doc appointment this week. I want to get tested for celiac and ovarian cysts, as my symptoms seem to match those, from my internet research. If the results are negative for both, I'm going to play around with my diet and see if I can pinpoint some type of food sensitivity.

I know it's probably not serious, but I do want to get checked out. I'm a bit of a hypochondriac lol two years ago I went to the doc for headaches and ended up having a brain tumor so better to be safe than sorry

My husband has celiac disease, which went undiagnosed until he was in his mid-fifties. As the disease progressed, and destroyed more of his intestinal villi, he did develop lactose intolerance as well, so this is not impossible. Once he got on a strict gluten-free diet, his intestines recovered and he is no longer lactose intolerant (basically he was unable to digest much of anything when it was at its worst).

Besides diarrhea, he also had skin lesions typical of celiac disease.

He now has colon and small intestine cancer - celiac disease raises your risk of small intestine cancer (which is otherwise rare), especially if it goes undiagnosed for a long time. Talk to your doctor about what screening you should do for this in the future. (My husband is OK, even though he was stage 4 at diagnosis, but there are signs that the cancer may be recurring).

I had an extremely bloated stomach, gas, constipation, diarrhea, extremely dry skin with bad keratosis pilaris, brittle nails and over production of mucus.

You should definitely see your doctor to have something more serious ruled out and if you are eating a lot of gluten this would be the best time to get tested for celiac.

Some people really want to know for sure, I don't need to know. I know I feel so much better without it and that's enough for me.

Please get a doctor's appointment ASAP. Your symptoms could be anything from a mild allergy or minor flu on up to ovarian cancer. It's most likely NOT serious, but you need to get the serious things ruled out right away so you can take your time figuring out which of the minor ones it really is.

It's also not likely that you have both celiac and lactose intolerance. It's not impossible, but when you have symptoms that seem to be from two unrelated things, usually both of them are coming from a third thing.

You should really talk to your doctor about those symptoms, because even though they sound like Celiac, they also cover common symptoms of other illnesses.

If you really suspect you have a wheat or gluten allergy, ask about getting tested for it. Don't cut out products before you get tested, though, as that can skew results.

Good luck.

What were your symptoms? I'm suspecting I have either celiac or gluten intolerance. I have bloating, abdominal pain and cramps, localized pain in my lower left abdomen, loose stools (sorry, TMI), migraines, and also my big toes are numb, and I've become VERY sensitive to the cold, which I've read could be a sign of celiac. I'm tired all the time, and often notice that I'm not feeling as mentally sharp and I usually do. I'm 22, by the way. I think I've also developed lactose intolerance.
