Hi all, I dont think I have shared this yet, so here goes. I am seeing a new Neurologist and he did a battery of blood and DNA tests on me. He told me last visit I have Celiac Disease. One of the symptoms of Celiac can be seizures. Not all Epileptics are Celiac patients so dont freak out. But..... look it up, read the web pages and see if you have any of the symptoms, or if ANYONE IN YOUR FAMILY has the symptoms, one will do. I have several that no one else put together till this guy. Mine are, irregular heart beats, seizures, depression ( long standing since childhood). Chronic pain, arthritis. No abd symptoms other than constipation that I put to my medications for B/P. So....... check it out and if in doubt ask for a blood test. If you are one of the lucky ones like me you get to go on a gluten free diet. Not bad, the only thing I will miss is pasta and pizza. There are substitutes I can buy ( as with everything) but we all know it will taste like ka - ka.
Any one else with Celiac??
