I just found this forum and was hoping to ask people here, draw on your experience to see if by chance anyone with Lupus also may have Celiac Disease. I was DG with Celiac Disease 2 years ago, my antibody numbers are back down to normal, however I have had 2 major episodes in the past year that have started with what seemed to be a cold sore, turning in to almost total body rashes, flu-like symptoms (yet not the flu), overall extreme fatigue, and very bad joint pain. It seems that most Celiac patients after going on gluten free diets seem to get quite better, but for me, it seems there is something else that is still not right.
I do have slight redness across nose and cheeks, but nothing compared to pics I have seen on web for Malar rash.
I am not searching for multiple illnesses here, I am just exasperated at not feeling well.
Any and all responses would be so much appreciated. THX
