Happy New Year from a Montgomery area Celiac!!!!!!

Here's the deal, I recently had my feet go numb and went to a neurologist. We ruled out a lot of things but eventually I went for an MRI and found a lesion on my spine and 3 on my brain. I've also had a spinal tap and basically my lesions are consistent with Multiple Sclerosis but I've only had one attack so I can't yet be firmly diagnosed with MS.
While I've been dealing with this I've been reading a lot about MS and I keep stumbling upon some ties between celiac and MS. Some MS sites have even suggested being tested for gluten intolerance because it can exacerbate MS and any such food intolerance should be dealt with.
Meanwhile, I also have a good family friend in holistic medicine and she also immediately suggested gluten problems. So, now I'm looking for a good doctor to go to for testing.
Until recently, I didn't think I had huge health issue but now I'm starting to realize that telling my boyfriend that my stomach hurts every day isn't normal!
After all the reading I've done, I'm starting to realize it may be hard to convince a doctor to order testing for celiac and that blood testing isn't the end all of gluten problems because it takes a pretty severe case to show up in the blood.
So, any suggestions for a doctor that might have some celiac experience would be very helpful! Thanks a bunch in advance.

Hi! How I appreciate your info on the restaurants. I love Outback and Carrabbas, but get tired of them. I must seek the Sunflower Cafe. I find Fresh Market and Virginia's Healthfood pretty much of a disappointment, but not too inconvenient, since I order most of my food. I stick mostly with plain whole foods cooked at home.
I, too, would be willing to help start a group. I don't know many people, am pretty much of a happy introvert.
Hi! My husband and I feel like we have a gluten intolerance, havent been diagnosed, but feel sure that a gluten-free diet would help us out. I got on Google to find places to meet people or places to buy specialty foods from, and found this post. Glad to meet you all. Hope you're still around.

I have celiac disease going on 9 yrs. I moved to Mobile,Al., four years ago. I would like to know if there is a support group for gluten intolerance. I discovered this site surfing the web. It"s a lonely disease to have to deal with by oneself. People don't understand what one goes through with this disease A support is needed.
Hi there...i moved to Mobile last year and would be interested in working with anyone that would like to get together and talk to local restsurants about providing a gluten-free menu. Feel free to email me at email@example.com

I realize this is a old post. I moved to Mobile,Alabama four years ago. I like yourself are looking to meet other individuals with celiac disease. I was wondering have you come across any support groups. If so please let me know.
I have just moved to South Mobile, Alabama from Oklahoma. Would love to meet with other Celiacs/Gluten-Intolerant of the area.
8 years gluten-free.
Also mostly soy and dairy-free.
