Because celiac disease inhibits the absorption of nutrients, the symptoms vary. Common symptoms affect the digestive tract and include abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea, vomiting and constipation; they can lead to weight loss and fatigue. Celiac disease can also affect other parts of the body, causing joint pain and tenderness like that of fibromyalgia. PubMed Health reports that patients with gluten intolerance may also suffer from other autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, which also resembles fibromyalgia.
The most common symptom of fibromyalgia is chronic pain that occurs without any known cause. It might be a stabbing or shooting pain or a dull ache deep within the muscles and joints. Patients often complain of neurological symptoms including numbness or tingling usually felt in the hands. Fibromyalgia causes sleep disturbances that lead to fatigue and extreme exhaustion. Patients with fibromyalgia may develop other conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, restless leg syndrome, anxiety and depression.
Research published in the "World Journal of Gastroenterology" states that diseases of the digestive system, like inflammatory bowel disease, produce musculoskeletal complications. This research suggests a link between digestive conditions and rheumatic diseases. This means that gluten intolerance not only shares symptoms similar to fibromyalgia but that there may be a common link. Because of this link, the research published in the "British Medical Journal" states that patients with fibromyalgia should be screened for gluten intolerance and that doctors should suggest the patient switch to a gluten-free diet to help relieve symptoms.
The Hornets should look into this if there is no structural reason for him to be experiencing pain.
