  1. Among the many specialists I've seen were rheumatologists who'd done their own set of tests. Nothing unusual. Nothing that would point to an autoimmune disorder. On the demyelinating side of the spectrum, I received no less than seven MRI's detailing ever inch of my spine and brain. I've also endured several EMG's, EKG's, urine tests, blood tests, spinal fluid tests, etc. All normal.
  2. Hi Sandy: They've checked me and found no evidence of the following: 1. Vitamin B12 deficiency 2. Lyme Disease 3. Heavy Metal poisoning 4. Multiple Sclerosis 5. Lupus 6. Sjogren's Syndrome 7. Hypothyroidism 8. Diabetes 9. AIDS 10. Rheumatoid Arthritis And others... It's been more than two years and I've pretty much given up on doctors. Some have even suggested it's "all in my head." Very frustrating and discouraging, to say the least.
  3. Beginning in 2005, I have endured unexplained and undiagnosed neurological symptoms. I've taken just about every test doctors can think of and there doesn't seem to be any answers for me. Among the tests were anti-gliadin IgG and IgA tests, which I understand are the hallmark tests for Celiac disease. Both came back negative or within normal levels. I'm wondering how common neurological involvement is in Celiac disease? The symptoms I have are intermittent. They are typically extremely uncomfortable and painful including the following: 1. Stinging pain in the joints, knees, elbows, wrists, etc. 2. Stinging pain in the eyes 3. Burning tongue 4. Stinging pain the private areas 5. Stinging pain and pins/needles in the feet and hands 6. Tinnitus 7. Stomach pain. 8. Neck pain 9. Muscle twitching in limbs Sometimes my fingers get so affected that I lose sensation in them --it feels like I'm wearing a light pair of latex gloves. Considering the above negative tests I've had, I'm not sure this is Celiac disease, but I'll try anything to get this to stop. Question is, I wonder how long it would take for me to see results if I were to simply try a gluten-free diet. Would it be weeks? Months? Thanks and I appreciate any insight.
