Celiac Misdiagnosed as MS?

Hi Everyone! It is so amazing to be part of this incredible community of positive and encouraging MS'ers. Thank you! I came across a very interesting pice of info in the book 'Grain Brain' by Dr. Perlmutter. He was talking about Celiac disease and how it often mimics the neurological symptoms of MS such as numbness in extremities, bladder problems and even lesions on the brain. He says that he is always very cautious when dealing with someone who has MS but also seems to have celiac disease because they may have the wrong diagnosis. Has anyone come across anything like this? Do any of you know that you are gluten intolerant? I really appreciate your insights, Kim
