Is it sciatic pain?
I don't think so. Burning, achiness, stiffness in lower back. Achiness, stiffness in both hips. The pain in my foot is around a site that I had surgery 7 or 8 years ago. It's aching and stinging. I feel like something's attacking weak spots in my body and lie I'm 100 years old.

I personally think that getting tested for vitamin deficiencies should be a part of any gluten allergy/celiac diagnosis. They are really common and are easy to find with blood tests.
I know that leg pains are associated with some deficiency, though I forget which one. Neuropathies can be caused by B12 deficiencies.
My aches and pains, though not as bad as yours, don't seem to be related to gluten directly, though I don't doubt that the damage and malnourishment that gluten caused could have been a factor. But they really don't know what affect celiac can have on the tendons and ligaments in joints.
There are a bunch of other autoimmune issues that seem to be more common in those with celiac. Sorry I don't have any other ideas for you.
