Severe pelvic pain throughout.
(I have major joint/bone/muscle pain from celiac but it is LESS
since being gluten-free.)

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

Neg Celiac tests, positive gene test
Life vastly improved off gluten
Dunno what that makes me, but I'm not going back.
Now corn, soy, and dairy free

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

Wow. Thank you for posting this topic. I, too, get joint and muscle pain (and fibromyalgia flares) from eating gluten, but never connected the low back pain into the mix. I have degenerating discs in my lumbar and cervical spine. Of course getting glutened would make that pain worse. Duh! (gentle head smack!) I will pay attention now to that connection. Yet one more reason to be even more careful.
I also have the fibromyalgia flares, and till you said it, I would never have linked it with the gluten ! Thanks,
