Suffering from body ache, fatigue and weakness. Noticed white specs in stools. Is this symptom due to Celiac disease?

I ve had body aches, fatigue , and weakness for months now and doctors have had a hard time figuring out whats wrong with me. Its gotten worse and been an everyday struggle with pain now for the past 2 months. My Dr. referred me to a reumotologist recently and he said I may have celiac disease or candidiasis , so to try some diet adjustments and I ve been doing that for 2 weeks now. I m just noticing a lot of little white specs in my stool and was wondering if that is related to those diseases or if it could be something else. I also noticed a little blood in my stool.

Hi ! If you are eating frequently from outside, then you should avoid it as infection can come in from food made unhygienic-ally outside.
Go for a stool test to exclude ova and cyst. If positive, then take appropriate medications as per the advice of your family doctor.
To know if it is celiac disease, you have to modify your food (gluten free )as per the advice of a dietician, and if that improves, then possibly it was a celiac disease. But it may take patient waiting to confirm or exclude it, and confirmation may be by way of an endoscopic biopsy from mucosa of small intestine. Wishing you an early recovery.
