The following is an adapted excerpt from my new book “Eat Dirt: Why Leaky Gut May Be the Root Cause of Your Health Problems and 5 Surprising Steps to Cure It“ (Harper Wave)

Autoimmune disease symptoms don’t always announce their arrival loudly. Many people slowly develop autoimmune conditions like leaky gut syndrome without even realizing anything is wrong. And the road to a diagnosis can be long and frustrating.

In fact, it can take about five years to receive an official autoimmune diagnosis. The average person goes to six to 10 doctors before autoimmunity is recognized as the culprit, largely because the symptoms of these diseases are so disparate and vague. So how can you know if you’re suffering autoimmune disease symptoms, and what can you do about them? Let’s take a look.

Common Autoimmune Disease Symptoms

Some of the most common autoimmune disease symptoms you should look out for include:

  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Attention deficit problems
  • Body rashes, red bumps on facial skin and red flaking skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Dermatitis
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Dry mouth
  • Frequent colds
  • Thyroid issues that could point to Hashimoto’s disease (underactive thyroid) or Graves disease (overactive thyroid)
  • Fatigue or hyperactivity
  • Weight gain or loss
  • General feeling of malaise
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle pain and weakness
  • Stiffness and pain (could suggest rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia symptoms)
  • Feeling “wired and tired”
  • Exhaustion
  • Digestive tract upset may indicate irritable bowel disease
  • Stomach cramping
  • Gas
  • Bloated stomach
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation

If you do have any of these symptoms, please don’t ignore them, hoping they’re nothing serious or that they’ll just go away on their own.

If you’re experiencing autoimmune disease symptoms, you’re not alone. Our country is currently in the throes of an autoimmune storm. According to the Journal of American Medical Association, the rate of chronic health conditions among U.S. children rose almost 15 percent between 1994 and 2006, with the largest growth among conditions believed to have an autoimmune link, such as obesity, asthma, and behavioral and learning problems.
