In brief: The fear of having

a flare up from celiac or eating triggering foods can generate anxiety so the answer is yes.
If anxiety goes beyond that or it interferes with your functioning or comfort seeing a mental health professional is a good idea. Please don't use medications alone, but learn some coping strategies for anxiety. Peace and good health.
