brad90956 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsAbout a year ago I woke up and my pinky finger was red and swollen. After a few days I went to the doctor and had an X-ray done, blood work (arthritis, gout, CBC, ANA, RF, lupus)...all were negative. Since then I have had an MRI which showed no trauma and that I have inflammation in the knuckle. No arthritis. My last visit to the doctor was this week. He flat out told me he doesn't know what is wrong with me. I guess my next step is going to a rheumatologist. My question is this...could it be caused from gluten? I am going to start a gluten free diet tomorrow to see if it helps.
