Finally an end to my struggle with my health

Sunday, April 11, 2021

Hello everyone I thought I would update you on my health issues and what I have recently discovered about my health struggles and what I have learned about them and what I know. Just recently I started doing some research on Mayoclinic's website and 'Discovered have symptoms that Were very similar to the condition that is commonly known No 1 for celiac disease. That being sad I saw it started shaking my head and Said when did this start happening and I not know and I didn't know it I started thinking back to my childhood and even into my teen years when I had my menstrual cycles and I blood very shall we say heavy. 1 of the things that popped out at me is the fact that My symptoms even then were very very similar to this condition and no 1 including my father realize this or anyone else Probably because we didn't know we Had anyone with the condition and tell recently someone in my church had this condition who is a friend of mine who is a church member Or should I say former church member and his grandma And mother and father I both know And that being sad I spoke to them both and They believe I do have it.And 1 of the reasons I say I have it besides the symptoms is the fact I have not gotten rid of my stomach in months and I do mean months I am constantly I repeat constipated and in constant I repeat Pain in all of my joints and that includes my hands where I had carpal tunnel surgery and yesterday was 1 of the worst days for that pain I was an agony when I was trying to write some psalms out for prayer. Please pray about this as I will see a specialist on Thursday to be tested for celiac disease.

    Hope you’ve gotten your results by now. If it is celiac disease, at least you’ll know what you can do for it. A friend had it back when eating gluten free was much harder. Good luck. I hope you post soon about what you found out. emoticon

    I found out that I have an intolerance to wheat and gluten..when I removed these from my diet I began to feel better..I am glad that you are being tested for Celiac disease...small changes can a world of difference. I also had to remove sugar. Let us know what you find out.
