  1. I think it's more of a sharp pain that is worse when she sits or maintains the same position for awhile. It's not totally constant - some days it's okay and other days (or parts of days) it is excrutiating, and she's a tough cookie. Good point about the pain harming her sleep - you are probably right. But the insomnia seems pretty consistent and present with or without the neck pain. Thanks for your thoughts.
  2. I have a 14-year-old girl who is one-month into a gluten-free trial diet after her functional medicine doctor told us her labs are "highly suggestive" of celiac. Her symptoms, which came on last year after a ruptured appendix and subsequent post-surgery infection, include abdominal pain, fatigue, sleep issues, anemia, neck pain, and protein malabsorbtion. So, here's the question. She's been gluten-free for one month and abdominal pain seems less but her sleep issues and most importantly, her NECK PAIN, is terrible and maybe worse than ever. Is this something anyone has experienced? Everything I read in reference to neck pain and celiac seems more focused on older people (who have aches and pains anyway). It's totally not normal for a 14-year-old girl to be in such chronic neck pain. I would have thought the gluten-free diet would be helping her feel better by now. Does anyone have thoughts or ideas about why or how long it may take for her to feel better? Thanks.
