  1. Joint Pain

    Thanks, you all. My brother also has said he avoids nightshade vegetables, and I have been for a couple of weeks, and I do feel better. However, I am still afraid that, in spite of a gluten-free diet, problems linger. I will let you all know what the doctor says next week. Jeffrey
  2. Hi everyone, I am 50 and diagnosed with celiac disease just 3 years ago. Like many of you, finally a lifetime of problems explained. I've been on a gluten-free diet, very strict. But in the last two years I have had increasing joint pain and fatigue. I can't walk 5 blocks when there's a flare up. When not, I can walk 5 miles. It comes and goes. I went to a rheumatologist -- it's not rheumatoid arthritis. I am going to a GI specialist, who will probably blame it on the celiac disease. But ... do any of you have lingering symptoms, in spite of the diet? Any other's have related autoimmune disorders that adversely affect the joints? Thanks. Jeff
