Thank you for sharing about your journey here. I had never before heard of your rare disease. Being a Celiac, it surprised me to learn that there is a 'celiac artery' and some of the symptoms seen similar to what I experienced before learning about being a Celiac and going gluten-free. I'm so sorry that your disease caused such bad pain, to the point of not being able to work. I really hope someone else who might have unexplained pain might end up reading about this disease here, too, and might find their answers sooner than happened in your case. Hugs.
