I watched Sick Fat and Nearly Dead on Netflix two weeks ago and I decided to try juicing because frankly I felt like was 80 and ready for a wheelchair. I was in so much pain, stiffness, running to the bathroom, always sick, etc.
I have been tired and not feeling well for years. But last summer I could still walk over a mile. Now I'm happy to get to the car. I'm severely lactose intolerant but I'd get sick sometimes even when I hadn't had milk. I was diagnosed with low vitamin D last summer. I started feeling worse a few months ago and it has gradually gotten to where I'm in horrible pain all over in the morning, stiff, hard to walk, dead to the world like a zombie. The pain and stiffness would get better after 1 or 2 hours. I could go to work, sit all day, go home and lay down. I'm 41!
I finally went to the doctor last week and my sed rate is elevated to 39. He is not concerned but suggested a sleep study due to my not getting asleep/staying asleep and feeling like hell. I have 2 aunts and 1 cousin that are off gluten due to sensitivities. So I started juicing and in just 3 days I have more energy, I sleep better, the pain and stiffness are nearly non existent. However today I feel like the gravity has been tripled. I'm wondering if I accidentally got gluten on Sunday in the hoisin sauce I used that I thought was gluten free.
Could I have celiac disease? Did any of you have elevated sed rates and similar symptoms? I looked up celiac disease and these are all symptoms I have: Abdominal pain, bloating, gas, or indigestion, Constipation, Decreased appetite, Diarrhea off and on, Lactose intolerance,
Nausea sometimes, Stools that float, are foul smelling, Unexplained weight loss (only 5 pounds the last few months), Bruising easily,
Depression or anxiety, Fatigue, Hair loss, Itchy skin, Missed menstrual periods (except very heavy the last 2 months), Mouth ulcers (comes and goes), Muscle cramps and joint pain. I also have memory issues, muscle twitching, blurry vision.. It's been a joke that I have the memory of a goldfish (about 2 seconds), my legs and arms twitch and wake me up from sleeping, blurred vision off and on.
Thyroid and rheumatoid markers/tests, FSH, LSH tests are normal.
Since my doctor is not concerned and thinks nothing is wrong, I'm trying to diagnose myself!
