Does anyone know if there is a connection between Celiac and osteo/nerve issues? Are Celiacs prone to osteopathic or nervous tissue degenerative diseases?
My history - diagnosed with Celiac about 3 yrs. ago - gluten free ever since. Since then, internal carotid dissections and aneurysms thought to be caused by Fibromuscular Displaysia, Tension Migraines.
Recently - waking up from sound sleep with burning pain - left side only - from neck/chest/shoulder down to fingers. Pain feels like it's deep in the bone. Occurs a couple times per week with varying severity. It does not seem to matter what I'm doing - sleeping, driving, just sitting there... After the pain (and sometimes along with it) comes numbness, sometimes tingling.
I ask because I just came from the hospital for such pain. I thought I had suffered a heart attack. I didn't. My doctors are bewildered and so am I. I have a follow up with my primary next week and I'd like to offer some ideas as to what they might want to check for.
Thanks for your input!
