Well, I don't have RLS-at least I don't think so. I think I sit too much to have it. I am going back on August 5th to have more blood drawn. I didn't get to talk to my NP, so I don't know what they plan to check.

I never had an ulcer. I was "headed" for one, due to stress. I had really bad acid reflux and IBS-like symptoms. Turned out to be stress, though, as when I quit my job the symptoms went away within weeks. I went to see a gastroenterologist, and he did some blood tests and found I was anemic. I don't know what the numbers were, but he decided to make sure I didn't have any open wounds internally with the endo and colonoscopy. He found nothing. He just dismissed it as being from my periods. I don't really think of my periods are that heavy. I've actually been unlucky enough to have hemoraging where it was, um, trickling out of me and the nurses said that was "nothing".(I had a premature birth during my 1st pregnancy, i.e. the hemoraging.)

This is the first time my ferritin has been low, and my cycles haven't changed over the years.

I have to call the clinic today to get the ferritin and iron numbers, so I know how bad it really is. I will post the numbers once I know.

Beth, I do have some issues with wheat products. Not really noticeable, but I do experience bloating-and the more I eat the worse it is, and while whole wheat usually has a laxative effect on my other family members-I don't experience that. I have also felt really sleepy after eating pasta or bread that wasn't whole grain. I thought I was insulin resistant, but my glucose came back normal. So now I wonder?

If you could shed some light on Celiac, I'd appreciate it. I'm definitely bringing it up next week.
