I recently had a positive celiac panel test and have been gluten free for 45 days. I also have hypothyroid disease and had a positive ANA 1:320 speckled. The Rheum. at Wake Forest was unimpressed with that number and me not having any joint pain but rather inflammation and tendonitis which is believed to be caused by celiac. My recovery process has been slow but is improving, however I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced or is experiencing whole body stiffness. I am stiff the entire day. I know thyroid issues can cause stiffness and I also know I am deficient in Vit D, Magnesium, Vit B and maybe more.
Sometimes I think I'm crazy, I am doing therapeutic massage and she said my entire body was tight and I had muscle knots everywhere. She used trigger points and it helped but here I am again this morning stiff.
Ugh. I have three small children and it kills me to not be the way I used to be.
