But, I would suggest that you concentrate on removing all gluten from your diet for an extended time period. If....after you're satisfied that you have been "clean" from all gluten (as much as possible), then explore other potential intolerance's.
One step at a time!

Are you saying that you think tapioca has gluten or that you cannot tolerate it? Tapioca flour/starch is a gluten-free product, which a lot of us use in baking. You might want to check these lists of safe and unsafe ingredients and also the Newbie 101 topic.
I am also a new celiac and was warned of soy which I have found to be troublesome. Also tapioca which is disappointing since so many products that are gluten-free contain either soy or tapioca flours. Learning to cook decent means has been a challenge and I do miss bread terribly. Pizza was a fond memory until Dominoes gluten free which I actually find quite tolerable. I have a supportive boyfriend, however, and friends have finally stopped offering cakes, pies and cookies. I am new to researching it and looking forward to learning more. Thank you all for being here.
Edit: If for some reason you cannot tolerate tapioca, there are other starches that can be substituted in baking (potato starch, cornstarch, etc.)

However, some celiacs (me included) end up with an intolerance to soy (including me). However, since you have just started eating gluten-free and are still healing, as another poster said, give youself a few months to heal before worrying about other food intolerances. If you're getting symptoms after that, then you can look at soy (dairy/casein is another common problem) as a culprit.
In the meantime, just be very careful when reading labels. There are great gluten-free soy sauces out there, and you can make your own teriaki, etc, or carry some with you to sushi restaurants and such.

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice
- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.
