I was diagnosed with CNS Lupus four years ago and it seemed to be irradicated after a year long course of Methotrexate. I have been having mild symptoms and will be asking to go back to my Neurologist next week when I can get a GP appointment. In the meantime, my Mother has been diagnosed with Celiac and I wonder if anyone else has both, or if the two are connected in some way. When I was first having symptoms of Autoimmune disease (prior to diagnosis) - I had severe optic neuritis and tingling/numbness in my toes, i gave up gluten and dairy. I have slipped and eat gluten again and I'm wondering if this is part of the reason I am getting symptoms again.
