I am hypothyroid and taking medication for it and over the last 4 years I have had so many food sensitivities and my face was constantly breaking out in hives everytime I ate. I have been to my GP and dermatologists numerous times but nobody seems to know what the problem is and everything get blamed on the thyroid. I have always had stomach issues and anything I ate would irritate my stomach so the GP prescibed Omeprazole for it. Recently I have been reading about coeliac and food sensitivities and have gone gluten free. My skin cleared but I must have eaten something that was contaminated and my face is now full of hives. I mentioned this to my GP and he is reluctant to send me for tests that woud confirm my diagnosis and his excuse is that the test is only done to children and because I am a mature adult, they would not do it. I am seriously suffering and I do not know what to do. I have read alot of journals and there seems to be a relationship between hypothyroidsm and coeliac disease and even after mentioning this to my doctor, he still insists there is nothing he can do. Please if there is someone out there who knows how I can go about having these tests done either via NHS or even private, I will be ever so grateful.
Thank you for taking your time to read my plea and I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
