I am 31yrs old and have had health problems over the last ten yrs. I was first diagnosed with IBS, later with chronic sinusitis and have begun losing my hair and having dry scaly scalp over the past 5 yrs. I have been to doctors and have never gotten any help. Either it is stress related, ( of which I disagree ), or that it is probably genetic. All I know is that my ancestors have all been healthy to our knowledge. Now I decided to try to find some help on the internet, to do my research and diagnosis, but I am having a hard time diagnosing because of my symptoms.
They are: loose joints, hair loss, irritable bowel, chronic sinusitis, lower back pain, and yellowish patches in my eyes, starting from inside corner working its way to the iris. I also have dark circles under my eyes constantly. I have a well balanced nutritional diet.
If there is anyone who could give any kind of help it would be greatly appreciated.

  • I would get tested for celiac disease. Celiacs disease is a disease that causes a far range of symptoms such as; neurological, dermatogical, and expecially gastro! The most common symtoms are in the form of IBS and are nausea, diarrhea, constipation etc. I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease because of my horrible abdominal pain. I know someone who was having memory problems and was diagnosed with celiacs disease. I would deffinitly get tested with your skin problems (which is a symtoms because there is a type of celiacs that deals with skin problems) and your IBS (MAJOR symtom!!!).Good Luck!!
