From what I've been reading, there do seem to be connections/correlations, etc. between all three (and more) of these things!  Hard to say which comes first.  My husband has a 90% blockage in his throat/terrible sleep apnea.  He just had the UPPP surgery.  Coincidentally, my 5 year old daughter is suspected of Celiac -- so I've been learning about that, too -- and I'm surprised at how many of my husband's symptoms are showing up when I read about my daughter.  Yes -- please have your dr. do a full Celiac panel (bloodwork) -- and then get a small intestine biopsy, too, perhaps.  AND see an ENT re: sleep apnea, CPAP machine, possible surgeries, etc.  The hypothyroid will most likely clear up as the other two issues are addressed.  BEST wishes to you!  I hope you're feeling better soon.  Sincerely,  Cara
