    Hiya,

    I am currently under investigation and it's weird because I didn't think I had any symptoms but I do infect have fatigue and I get bad restless legs specially of a night!

    I would go to your doctors explain your symptoms and ask them for a blood test.

    Are you constantly tired? Doesn't matter how many hours sleep I get I constantly feel shattered!

    Hi jade. I am permanently shattered no matter how much sleep I have. I can sleep 10 hours and still feel drained.

    Hi Jade. Do you have any of my symptoms besides restless legs and fatigue?

      No,

      Its difficult because I was diagnosed with IBS years ago and I do believe I have it as sometimes certain foods give me stomach cramps other times it doesn't and also if I'm nervous/anxious/stressed I get IBS pains so looks like I've got that as well as coeliac.

      I went to the doctors for another problem and she did a full blood test to rule everything out and it came back with a high antibody reading present in someone with coeliac I was then sent for a gastroscopy and the biopsies were all consistent with coeliac I'm waiting for my follow up appointment now.

    Restless legs are a sign of magnesium deficiency. People with coeliac disease become deficient in vitamins and minerals. My husband has CD and has to still have daily supplements of calcium (for sleep apnoea & osteoporosis), magnesium, Vitamin B

    ... also zinc and probiotics. Try taking calcium in the morning at breakfast and morning tea. . and the magnesium in late afternoon and/or in the evening. As well as sleep problems, vitamin and mineral deficiencies cause many other problems including brain fog, memory loss, mental problems (depression/anxiety etc). But you may want to wait until after you have your tests when you can go on a gluten free diet so the vitamins & minerals can be digested properly..
