Hi Delaware Deb - I was just reading the thread from Sept.2008 regarding FB pain and Vit.b12 deficiency. I wanted to tell you that you should be tested for Celiacs Disease (CD). All the symptoms/diseases you mentioned are results of CD. It is an autoimmune disease and when you eat gluten the body sees it as a toxin and attacks itself, resulting in more autoimmune diseases/disorders (Sjoren's and Fibro, which I also have are big ones). The villi of the sm. intestine are damaged and are unable to absorb nurtrients. Therefore, vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition is generally how it is diagnosed. I have low vit. d and b12. One in 133 people have CD and 95% don't know it. Please see http://www.celiac.com/articles/1106/1/Celiac-Disease-Symptoms/Page1.html Hope it helps - Jenna
