Katrina Robinson was one of the estimated half-a-million Britons living with undiagnosed coeliac disease Migraines, depression, ME, heart problems, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease - these are just some of the conditions Katrina Robinson was diagnosed with over a ten-year period as she struggled with dizziness, fatigue and muscle ache.

At least these doctors took her symptoms seriously; others implied her problem was all in the mind. ‘Some made me feel like a hypochondriac,’ says the 46-year-old solicitor from Twickenham, London. ‘They told me to take a holiday.’

LOL my Mum brought that article over today and I had to inform her that I was tested for this last year.

I think she was a little disappointed I didn't have coeliac disease...I feel she felt it was a less embarrassing ailment than saying her daughter had CM.
