I'm not a doctor, but it sounds to me like these lumps may be lipomas, which are benign (non-cancerous) tumors composed of fat cells. I'm not sure how they can be treated. You may want to discuss this possibility with your doctor. It sounds like you are going through the wringer at the moment! I hope your doctor cooperates with testing you for celiac disease, and I hope that going gluten-free produces significant improvement in your various conditions. Good luck!
gluten-free since November 1, 2003

I think they're nothing to worry about, but I don't know what causes them - and I'm only relying on secondhand information, so go and ask your doctor just to be safe!

I had one on my hip, that has gone away after cutting all the gluten out of my diet, and one very small one on the roof of my mouth. I kept picking at the one in my mouth, and when it started to go away it didn't disappear all the way. I think it built up scar tissue.
I thought I had fibromyalgia at first also. Most all my symptoms have gone away except the joint pain. Iím working on that with glucosamine and chondroitin.
