Default Celiac symptoms linked to black mold?

So about a year and a half ago, I moved into a new high rise apt in Miami?
Was pretty good until about 2 months ago, when after a leak was discovered, coming from one of the bathrooms.
The leak had been going on for some time. After exposing some of the drywall, it showed large portions of black mold throughout the drywall. And being in South FL, black mold can run rampant!
I had a mold inspector come and do several tests, confirming that nit was there toxic black mold eating the drywall, but many spores found in the air as well.
At about the same time, I noticed symptoms relating to Celiacs or a gluten intolerance starting!
I travel a lot for work... And when symptoms were bad around Xmas, I was in Colorado for two weeks following.... With NOT ANY of the symptoms present!
As well, noticed it better on other trips as well.
It seems to progressively get worse... And my question is... Is the presence of black mold able to trigger Celiac's disease or like symptoms??
Please advice!
Thank you!

There is wheat in the dry wall mud, that is probably your problem.

Airborne particles?

yes, particulate matter that you breath in, goes down your throat, to your gut. also, lands on counters etc, and can be ingested from there.

The answer is yes. Mold toxins (mycotoxins) can increase gluten sensitivity. For the sake of your health, you need to get away from that mold.
