Hello! I am a 19 year old female and I feel like I am falling apart. I was diagnosed with celiac about a year ago and have been completely off of gluten. I have also developed allergies to dairy, eggs and soy. However, I feel as though I am not feeling better at all. Basically the main symptoms that have been bothering me for over 2 years are overwhelming fatigue all of the time. Especially after meals and in the afternoon. My head always feels foggy and I can't concentrate on things and lately my memory has gotten bad which is scary. I have an awful pain in my upper abdomen that radiates up my back. This can be very intense but dull and it hasn't stopped hurting in 4 days now. I am severely bloated, constipated and my tummy just feels inflamed and angry. Some other strange symptoms are I am thirsty all of the time and I get headaches in the from of my head that feel like dehydration but I drink a lot everyday. I get awful back pain during my period. I also have had a strange, dull texture to my fingernails for 7 years now. Earlier this year during another flare up they thought it could be a kidney infection. I was feeling really awful and had a fever and chills. The antibiotics seemed to help but one of my main symptoms at that time was the upper abdominal pain. I am very healthy when it comes to eating so it is very frustrating that I feel so sick all of the time. I am also slightly anemic but taking the iron prescribed to me makes me feel incredibly constipated and sick. Please let me know if you have any idea what this might be!! I am desperate as it is really impacting my quality of life Thank you!
