So I've noticed if I cross my legs, or bend my arms (even just for a few seconds) then whatever limb I'm bending goes numb and then starts to tingle. It even happens sometimes when I'm just laying or standing with my limbs straight. What could be causing this? Should I be drastically worried?

Anything subtle like that, I would wait to look into it until after you feel like you are totally healed.  There is a good chance that will slowly fade away :)

If you are not already taking it sublingual B12 may help this resolve more quickly. Just let your doctor know you are taking it or any other vitamin or supplement if the doctor does vitamin and mineral levels.

I noticed that around my 2-3 month point of being gluten-free. I had read that it was normal to have that so I wasn't took worried, but it really just faded away after a few weeks-a month. I think I read it can be part of the detox process.

Beef and pork free due to intolerance since 2005, Gluten free since March 2014, Coffee free due to a developed intolerance June 2014, Egg free due to a developed intolerance August 2014
Misdiagnosed since 2000 with chronic fatigue syndrome, major depression and anxiety disorder.
Requested doc test for Celiac disease in April 2014.
Blood test positive for  Celiac disease May 2014.

Celiac Dx confirmed via small intestine biopsy 6/26/14
Fatigue,.depression, anxiety, daily headaches, and a laundry list of other symptoms have diminished slowly since I stopped eating gluten.

Who knows how much longer I would have suffered if I continued to rely on doctors to think of testing me for celiac disease.

This may have been part of it too. Around the time it stopped was when I started to supplement with extra B12

I guess I will be looking for a good B12 supplement and see if that helps.
