Celiac disease can cause other autoimmune disesae.  Get tested.  Stopping gluten could halt and even reverse some of this.

Thanks. biopsied for celiac diseased-no celiac (instead hiatial esophagus and autoimmune gastritis-so no stomach lining )
my back keeps on hurting and PT said muscles have been torn since am so weak  (last year i used to go to the gym and take classes three times or more a week and now many days I cannot get out of bed) i work 20 hours a week, so i can get some rest inbetween.  -i'm 46 and 142 pounds but now I feel like my grandma-i just need to rest a while--
I wake up from back pain and numb or tingly fingers.  ( i used to crochet but stopped since it made it worse)  
my eyes are dry with what they say is sjogren
and my fingers go white with raynauds syndrome
i have been doing iron infusions, just did 6th one two weeks ago and did a b12 shot so should be less tired..  but often my hashimoto thyrodis gets blamed for tired -and for tachychadia (heart rate around 120)  
skin autoimmune disease i'm thinking could benefit from no gluten or atleast no yeast.
