Celiac disease can cause vitamin D deficiency and anemia, but it's not associated with a positive ANA test. Most patients with Celiac have a normal sed rate. Vitamin D deficiency is often associated with myalgia. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease, and having one autoimmune disease increases your chances of having another one, such as lupus, which can explain your posiitve ANA and body aches.

Vitamin D is the easiest to deal with, about 1/3 of the population has low Vit D levels, and you can correct that with an over the counter supplement. Rest of the finding suggest and autoimmune process, but you need to consult a physician for a thorough evaluation.

More work up

You are 22 years old. Female. You note body swelling on 1/2. Sed rate elevated and you have weakness or tired. You may need more work up. The sed rate is non specific. If you do not feel better ask your doctor to do a Lyme titer and CBC. For your own homework talk to parents see if any new bites this summer, did you have rashes etc. Hope you feel better.
