Gluten Sensitivity?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I've had problems with anxiety and random nerve pain throughout my body for 9-10 years. The pain is not constant, but is worse some days than others. I was tested for celiac by a gastroenterologist maybe 6-7 years ago but the result was negative. I was wondering how likely you think gluten sensitivity may be? Can it affect (only) the nervous system this way? Has anyone else had the same experience, or heard of someone who has?

its a soft tissue issue, which means a lot to everything

Well, testing has advance in recent years. I would consider retesting. And after that, try the full diet and see if you have symptom relief.

I agree. Even though you were negative 6 yrs ago you could show up positive now. I would get new tests and make sure they do a full panel before going gluten-free. All the tests listed here: http://www.celiacdisease.net/assets/documents/2011CDCFactSheets_AnitbodyBloodTests.pdf

Yes, nerve issues a very much a part of it. This is what first appeared to me as bothersome symptoms. It doesn't hurt to retest. If tests are still negative then maybe try a gluten-free diet anyway. I had to do alot of supplementing. My body was pretty damaged, so the point of bone loss and I was not absorbing the proper nutrients from foods alone. I have been gluten-free for 6 months, vit supplementing for 3 months. For me, it was the extra vits that have made a difference in my recovery. The process is slow.
