Possible Celiac Symptoms?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm sort of new to this whole thing and I'm looking for advice. About two months ago, my ankles started to have a lot of pain and it was uncomfortable to stand for long periods of time on my heels. Then they started to swell and even present some edema. I went to a podiatrist and he injected my ankles with cortizone and the swelling disappeared, but the pain didn't. My doctor put me on doxycycline with the idea that it was Lyme. But my symptoms progressed to headaches and extreme fatigue. My muscles also get really sore. I went off the doxy as two lyme tests two months apart showed negative. I was also tested for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and hypothyroid. Though my thyroid levels were slightly elevated, my sedimentation levels were double what they should be and the c- reactive protein level was also unusually high. He said my whole body is inflamed and it seems like an autoimmune issue but he doesn't know why. This was just yesterday, so I haven't been tested for celiac or gluten intolerance but my son has had it since he was born and I'm very familiar with the problem. To all you pro's out there, does this sound like I could be developing the same issues as my son? Thanks so much...Steve

You certainly could be, but I am not saying that based on your symptoms since I didn't experience those. However, if your son has it it's likely one of his parents passed it to him if he's your natural child and not adopted. My gastro mentioned several different times when people had bizarre symptoms, one of them being liver enzymes that were off as the only symptom. They tested for lots of things but celiac was the discovery in the end. Another was just soreness in one joint periodically. Because it manifests in so many strange ways and you already have a son with the disease, testing should surely be on the list of possibilities.
