I used to have terrible pains and aches in my neck and shoulders.
I saw an orthopedist, before going gluten-free, he said I had a little
arthritis, but couldn't understand the pain in my shoulder. He
wanted to diagnosis it as Fibromyalgia, but I didn't pass the
test, you need to have several "pressure points" all over the
body. To make a long story short the pain away after going
on the gluten-free diet. I don't want to discourage you, but, soon
after I started this diet I developed pain in both knees
and the tops of both my feet. Maybe after my antibodies
come down I will become pain free
gluten-free since 11/03, neg biopsy, IGA elevated

I am following you around this forum, obviously we have had many of the same problems. I am just now getting past this one, first magnesium helped me A LOT, I use Mega Mag by Trace Minerals (liquid ionic magnesium with a whole host of trace minerals to help many things and all are from plant sources which make all the difference in the world) I get it at my local health food store but it can also be ordered online at a discount from places like www.totaldiscountvitamins.com
Also, I recently started making my own kefir which is like yogurt but sooooo much more than yogurt and kombucha tea (both are fermented) and now I am improving by leaps and bounds now and the best part is finally my pain (muscle and otherwise) is subsiding. I had the same problem with sleeping positions that you do, but not anymore. You can get taditional kefir grains and kombucha that reproduce if you take good care of them from people online for the cost of shipping and handling, if your interested I can provide the info you need to get some. These grains are placed in milk and once the milk is fermented, it is then digestible by even those that are lactose intolerant and is loaded with probiotics and nutrients, it helps heal the intestines and pushes infections such as candida out of the system. Kombucha is a culture that you place in black or green tea and sugar, it then ferments and is also loaded with nutrients and nutritional yeasts as well as a componant that helps the body rid itself of toxins. They work great together, and cheap as all get out, I can't believe all the $ I have spent on supplements that didn't help and now I am spending next to nothing and finally improving! Good stuff.

My head feels sort of the same way, and it's constantly numb. My doctors probably won't figure it out...my mom thinks it's because of a vitamin deficiency I have. Oh well, the endoscopy will tell all.
Hang in there!!!

I'm still having 'head issues' but that's bc the allergy season this year is out of control. I don't even normally HAVE allergies, but this year apparently I do. My doctor has me on Zyrtec and Nasacort (I'm having sinus issues as well) and it's made a world of difference.
That may not be your problems, but I've discovered it's a little frightening what stress and allergies can do to your body!
