muscle laziness post-gluten-free diet

In searching the forum, I found a lot of posts about muscle hypotonia before following a gluten-free diet but nothing about it for people following a gluten-free diet.  While we don't have what sounds like muscle hypotonia exactly, my daughter and I both have "lazy" facial muscles, according to our speech therapist.  We also both suffer from sleep apnea so we have some apparent muscle weakness in our throats as well.  

I'm wondering if we are lacking some enzyme that's needed for muscle building, as we are both on the petite side.  FWIW, I am on the autoimmune paleo diet (3+ years) while my daughter can eat anything gluten-free (I'm so jealous!).  ND is on top of our labs and supplements.  Does anyone have experience with something similar?
