Untreated celiac disease can definitely lead to many nervous system issues. In some people it manifests as a brain/nerve disease, and we have many articles on this topic here:

and this article, although it's older, sums it up well:

Yes. As mentioned above by admin it does. In my experience my short term memory got thrown off. Sometimes focus as well. Mind drifted more easily. I would have to turn around at end of block to check if I closed the garage door. I just left from. Our garage  repairman actually put in a delay for me last time he was out. I have to hit the garage door button twice to close. It helps me. 

That was a reoccurring problem I had when undiagnosed at my last home. Also, one that re occured at this home during and after my gluten challenge.

This is one example I can think of. My long term doesn't seem to struggle as much, but I am told my long term is very good from people who know me.

Absolutely. I have this bad habit of talking to myself that started when I was a kid and never really stopped. I think it was my coping mechanism for the brain fog. I don't have short term memory loss but I got bullied a lot and thought I was crazy until I admitted that I talked to myself to someone and they were like "dude everyone does that, it's only crazy if someone answers"

yes, I have experienced this - didn't realize I was compensating for my memory by tricking myself - like:  when I see this, i'm going to remember to bring the post office keys when I go out.

I still do it, but not as much.  writing stuff down helps, too.  lists help also, as long as you remember to take it with you!!  lolz  :D
