Wondering if I have celiac's disease!

Saturday, March 19, 2016

I've been getting eczema on my hands. It's so itchy and my hands are just swollen and raw. Wakes me up all night long and I'm trying to figure out my triggers. It had cleared up before Christmas (when I was eating well - no bread/pasta/low carbs) and when I fell off the wagon it all came back. So for the last few weeks I've been eating very clean and yesterday I was on the go, out all day. I tried to make good choices, eating at Subway for lunch, stayed at my parents for supper and they had pasta so I had a small amount and after my spring celebration I was starving so I grabbed a sandwich from Tim Horton's on the way home...since I live a couple hours from the celebration spot. By the time I got home my hands were red and raw and so itchy again. I think it could be all the bread! I'm going to go see the doctor this week and try to get to the bottom of this. I have a whole list of what could be symptoms also so maybe I'll be able to get some answers. That's all for now! Enjoy your day and I hope the sun is shining where you are.

    Thanks ladies :-) I hope I am good and healthy too but some answers would be nice! I haven't had any bread since that day and my hands are clearing up! Mysterious. Allergy testing is a great idea, thanks for the suggestion Trish :) happy spring!

    Good for you having things checked out! Perhaps you will have some allergy testing done? That might be helpful to explain your symptoms. Wishing you well!
