Head Trauma Causing Celiac's Disease?

Recommended Posts

When I was 8 years old, I attended a summer camp. My friend and I were in charge of running the spongy-floaty thing that is labeled LIFEGUARD that they always sit with. Anyways, I had the strap around my and my best friend was holding onto the spongy-floaty part. We were running and she ran faster than me. We got to concrete steps and I slowed down, but she kept on barreling down the stairs. I lost my footing and was dragged down the stairs. The top of the back of my head landed on the corner of each concrete step. 

 

We never went to the doctor because I have a high pain tolerance and wasn't telling them just how badly it hurt. We iced it, etc etc etc. About a month, not even, after that, the symptoms of my Celiac's disease started up.

 

I have a friend who had an appendicitis and after her surgery, she was diagnosed with Celiac's because of the change in her system from the surgery. 

 

I was wondering if something similar happened with me. Did the eleven blows to my head initiate my Celiac's disease?

Anything that can cause change in your body can trigger it (examples are surgery, sickness, injury, stress, etc.).

Thank you! That will benefit me in trying to help my doctors piece together my Celiac's.
