Fibro vs Celiac
2 Replies
dwilmoth - April 10

I was diagnosed with fibro about a year ago but, as most, have suffered with the symptoms for years. I recently had a friend suggest that I may have been misdiagnosed. She suggest I check into Celiac Disease. Has anyone else thought they may have this instead or on top of?

Yes. As a matter of fact, I posted about that recently (you can do a search of this site for "celiac" and find the old postings). I recently had an endoscopy done to biopsy my small intestine to test for celiac. I was suffering from severe anemia -- I had a colonoscopy done at the same time. I was negative for celiac. I have heard recently (from this site) of there being non-celiac gluten intolerance than can cause the same symptoms. Maybe the simplest thing to do is eliminate gluten from your diet for a while and see if you get better.

Thank you for the insight.
