I was blaming my fibromyalgia for my eyes hurting. I went to eye doctor and he informed me that my "eyes are a mess". He said my eyes were not producing tears and the surface of my eyes have all kinds of micro-abrasions. Has anyone out there had this problem?
Excellent suggestion for Cryopteris, testing for Celiacs is complex and so is
For Celiacs, just try the gluten-free diet for several weeks, before going for any diagnostic testing. Your body will know the difference!
The problem for some Celiacs sufferers is that they may have a genetic deficiency in IgA, which returns inaccurate results when conducting the primary diagnostic blood test for Celiacs.
Also look for a possible underlying low thyroid function, often linked to Lupus, Sjögren's and FMS ( sometimes being misdiagnosed as FMS)
and also look at the connection of Celiacs, Gluten and low thyroid.
Easy test to do on your own for low thyroid or to also test thyroid hormone
efficiency if already diagnosed is Dr. Barnes Basal Temperature Test.
Just do a search for it and follow the instructions precisely.
if you have an infection while testing, the results won't be accurate.
