so this is going to be a long ramble -
thought i had a yeast infection that wouldnt clear. then thought i had BV - meds did absolutely nothing. Unbearable itch and rash down there. Did a full round of tests and everything came back negative. My timeline was off for it to be a STD but that was my big worry
itch then progressed to being full body -
later developed GI ISSUES- extreme flatulence, bloating, cramping, diarrhea
embarrassing to admit the problem moved to my rectum causing clear discharge, tears and hemmorhoids
i get a boyfriend - we have sex (protected) and my body totally freaked out. swollen lymph/glands, r hand numbness, headache, tears down there, extreme muscle pain and spasms that left me bed ridden for 3 days -- felt like the flu. I googled and totally stressed out thinking I had herpes which was not on the initial STD TEST. Went back - doctor re-examined me and assured me my rash wasnt herpes. Did more tests to be sure -- everything was negative except because my blood work was taken mid attack my WBC and neutrophil count was way high compared to the last blood work.
I was then referred to an internal medical specialist who sent me for more tests --- this showed extremely low Vitamin D AND low positive ANA scores (1:80 / 1:160 speckled)
im waiting for a follow up appt with my medical specialist which is a few weeks out --- based on my google search the symptoms could be a reaction to gluten ?!? Does this sound like coeliac ?!??
ALSO --- if this is a gluten sensitivity any recommendations on good foods to eat ?
sorry for the rant and thanks for any advice you can give -- im desparate over here
