A positive ANA test, vitamin d deficient, anemia, body aches, and high sed rate. Could all of these symptoms be caused from celiac?

In brief: No

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.

In brief: Yes.

All of these are possible effects of untreated celiac disease.
