I am a 52 year old female. I have always had digestive problems and probably celiac. I had the test, but did it when I had been on a gluten free diet for years. The doctor thought it would show anyway because he said noone is on a true gluten free diet. Ha!!! He doesn't eat at my house. I have malabsorption problems and do not digest my food, I found undigested pills in my feces while gathering samples for a parasite test. I also have developed bladder/female pain for the last 11 months. I do not feel well most days and the anxiety and depression are getting to me. I have an enlarged thyroid but radiologist says it is nothing to worry about, I have an enlarged uterus with fibroids but gyno says not to worry, and I also carry bacteria in my bladder, but no infection. The skin on my neck (both front and back) itch constantly. I also have deep horizontal ridges on both thumb nails. The thumb nails can be either concave or convex depending. They change back and forth. I have these since I was about 8 years old. No doctor has been able to tell me what it is from. Would really appreciate any input you may have. I have been to mulitple doctors and all are perplexed.
