Hello all, I have been gluten free for over 4 months after being confirmed Celiac through the biopsy, I was wondering if anyone suffered from Neck pain or had extremely sensitive teeth for no apparent reason(no cavities). Both these symptoms happened the same time my joints started to hurt roughly a year and a half ago. Not sure if I'm the only one. Thanks for your time.

Hello. I have not been diagnosed celiac but ncgs by a celiac specialist. I have a Marsh 1 on biopsy. 

I have pain in my right neck on and off.  It led to a thyroid uLtrasound which showed my isthmus is larger on that side And I have a very small nodule. But an endocrinologist ruled out any issues with the thyroid. It is not consistent like a muscle. My doc informed me the pain from gluten exposure can occur anywhere. My sibling, who is confirmed celiac, also had neck pain Which vanished on a gluten free diet.

It is funny, because I was just complaining Yesterday about a sensitive molar on that side.  I have had it for some time and have been to the dentist a couple of times since it started and he has done x-rays both times and cannot find anything!  I have just been sort of dealing with it. I am due back for a cleaning on Thurs.  for me I actually did have a cavity somewhere over on that side that he had set, and then reset, and then reset again, hoping the pain would go away.

 I also developed joint pain around the same time first in the knees and now In the elbows.

 stay on top of it, make sure you talk to your dentist, and if it doesn't resolve bring it up each time you there.

 It is so hard to know when you feel like your body is falling apart what's relevant and what's not.

Are you referring to bone or soft tissue?  You should consider getting your neck examed by a doctor.   It might not be related to celiac disease at all. 

As far as your teeth are concerned, celiac disease does have an impact.  Unfortunately, the damage is permanent.   Another possibility is neuropathy which for celiacs, can take a long time (over a year) to resolve.  

Four months into the diet?  It can take a long time to resolve symptoms.  Hang in there!
