My Celiac symptoms that I didn’t know I had

My Celiac Symptoms that I didn’t know I had

I started losing track of everything that’s either completely gone now or 80%+ better, so I wrote down a list.  I couldn’t believe how long it was!  I created this before I got officially diagnosed in December of 2012 so I could have a list, if needed, for the Gastroenterologist.

I hope me listing this helps someone put the pieces of the puzzle together!

Symptoms Completely Gone (as long as I don’t get gluten)

  • Gas
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Ringing Ears
  • Full ears
  • Crackling Ears
  • Stomach Bloat
  • Stomach Noise
  • Ear Infections
  • Sinus Infections
  • Brain Fog
  • Weak Nails
  • Hairloss
  • Sinus Rhinitus
  • Allergies
  • Numbness in Fingers and Toes
  • Uncontrollable Irritability
  • Depression

Symptoms 80%+ Better

  • Sensitive Teeth
  • Asthma
  • Migraines
  • Rosacia
  • Blisters on Nose
  • Frequently ill
  • Headaches
  • Tiredness

The year or two before I figured out I had Celiac Disease, and then later diagnosed, one really noticeable symptom I had was I had started loosing a lot of hair.  My hair dresser noticed as well and kept asking if I was stressed.  I really didn’t feel like I was more stressed than usual.  It was amazing to see how quickly I stopped losing hair after being just weeks off gluten.

As you can see, there were many ‘symptoms’ that were not obvious that they were related to Celiac Disease until you put them all together and until I went off gluten.
