HELLO,

I HAVE BEEN SICK WITH MANY SYMPTOMS & NO DOCTOR HAS BEEN ABLE 2 FIGURE IT OUT AS OF YET !!!
I AM BACK DOING MY OWN RESEARCH & IM FITTING THE SIGNS OF LUPUS 2 A TEE ... THE ONLY THING NOT MENTIONED IN SYMPTOMS IS PROBLEMS WITH YOUR G.I TRACT ... I HAVE SEVERE BOUTS OF I.B.S. & A REDUNDENT COLON ... I GO IN TOMORROW 2 HAVE AN UPPER ENDOSCOPY FOR BLEEDING IN THE STOMACH THAT WAS REQUESTED BY MY HEMATOLOGIST DUE 2 MY RED BLOOD CELL COUNT SOOO LOW ... HE SAID ITS EITHER BLEEDING IN THE STOMACH OR A TUMOR & SURE ENUF ( FOUND BY HAVING A CAPSULE ENDOSCOPY) THATS ITS BLEEDING ... I JUST PUT A CALL INTO MY HEMATOLOGIST RE: LUPAS , JUST WOULD LIKE YOUR OPINION ...
THANK YOU !!!!

Hello,

Have you ever been tested for Celiac Disease? It has many symptoms of lupus and also the GI symptoms. I have read that sometimes they go together and people with Lupus also have Celiac Disease. I have also read that when someone with lupus go on a gluten free diet it really helps them.

Just some thoughts.

It could be that you have fibromyalgia. There is a link between IBS and fibromyalgia
