This is just a little scary. I received this in an e-mail and it struck me how closely the symptoms for Ovarian Cancer are to those of Celiac Disease.
Ovarian Cancer Whispers – so listen carefully . . .
Watch for Pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort;
vague but persistent gastrointestinal upsets such as gas, nausea, and indigestion
frequency and/or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection;
unexplained weight gain or weight loss
pelvic and/or abdominal swelling, bloating and/or feeling of fullness;
ongoing unusual fatigue;
unexplained changes in bowel habits.
If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic/rectal exam, CA-125 blood test, and trans-vaginal ultrasound.
A pap test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer.
Do these symptoms sound familiar!
Those of us with Celiac Disease experience these symptoms when we get “glutened”
