Hello all.  This is my first post, and I am simply wondering if any of you here have had a similar issue after diagnosis?

 

Well, my story goes: I was recently diagnosed with celiacs, a month ago actually, after a while of not having it treated.  Celiacs, for me, wasn't so much as a slow build up as it was a sudden storm.  Because of the sudden on-set of it, the doctors I dealt with thought it was a heart condition, GI cancers, and other GI issues; all my tests came back negative and the doctors were confused.  It wasn't until a friend of mine who has celiacs said I might have it that I asked the doctor to test me.  My blood test came back as celiac.  The other blood tests showed, or as I was told, were consistent with someone who has celiacs; I assume that meant my vitamins and whatnot were out of balance.

 

After diagnosis, though, one issue has stayed.  My muscles twitch, not constantly, but a good portion of the day.  The twitching is NOT focused in one area, but likes some areas more than others.  My quads, calves, tricep, and intestinal area.  Specifically, my intestinal area when I need to go to the bathroom.

 

I have seen a neurologist, the physical exam showed that my eyes, strength, and coordination are normal.  I am also having an EMG test soon.

 

My question is: have any of you had a similar issue?  Since June, I've just been wrought with worry because the sudden on-set of everything, and I would just like to know if any of you all have had something similar to help me worry less about what might possible be wrong.

 

Thank you.

What you describe sounds like it could be a nutrient deficiency like low magnesium or one of the B vitamins. Celiac disease results in the mal absorbing of nutrients because of damage to the micro villi that line the small bowel. There is also something called restless body syndrome that is rather a mystery (similar to restless leg syndrome). My wife takes ropinirole for restless leg. It helps.

This is an older thread but there was quite a bit of discussion about muscle twitching:http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/64429-muscle-twitching/

 

There might be some info there that can help you. :)
