Wrist Pain A Sign?

8 posts in this topic

I'm not a diagnosed celiac, but my mother has it and I definitely feel better on the diet. I've been on it 2 times (this is 2nd) and I'm sticking to it this time. But I got this wrist pain about 7 weeks ago when I was eating gluten and it hasn't got better. Its like on the outside of the wrist and is a shooting pain, it isn't a pain which causes agony but it is still there majority of the time. Could this be caused by celiac or gluten intolerance? Has anyone had this and if so how long did it take to disappear?

As with all things, it's possible, although I would not automatically assume it was in the absence of any other symptoms. To put your mind at rest, you need to get tested, especially as your mum already has coeliac disease. Don't forget, some Coeliacs don't actually have any symptoms.

In order to get tested though, you need to be eating gluten and wheat for at least 6 weeks for it to show up.

I would not associate lone wrist pain to Celiac. If you had pain in multiple joints, that could link up.  

 

How long did you try the diet the first time?  Did you have relief of symptoms then?  What is your intention starting the diet again?  And do you have active symptoms/issues that are leading you to think the diet will help you?  

 

These questions will help determine your future course of action and the fortitude to follow thru.

 

Good luck in your quest for health.

I had wrist pain for years, diagnosed as repetitive strain injury.  It knocked on to my arm, shoulder and neck.

 

I helped a lot by stopping work which involved typing, but since I have beenn gluten-free (Sept 12) I have had a massive improvement. I have also had improvement in migraine and plantar faciitis, so I think I am attributing the improvement to a general reduction in inflamation.

 

When I get glutened (soyed, dairied) it all comes right back.

 

I'd agree with flowerqueen that if you want to get blood tested it can be easier to do it while on gluten, especially as you know it may be there in your genetics. The gene test doesen't require eating gluten, but only tells you if you are in a likely category for developing the disease. Then those of us who are Non Celiac Gluten Intolerant, who don't show up on any tests (yet!!)

 

Hope you get the wrist sorted, not much fun.

My blood rtest came back negative, so I didn't do anymore testing and I was first on the diet for about 2 months and noticed my digestive issues were improving, this is my 2nd week back on the diet now and I intend to just stick at it for good.

I'm hoping you find that your commitment to the diet will resolve many symptoms for you and like a lot of us, resolve things we didn't even realize were wrong.  

 

Congratulations, and we are here to help you along.

Brilliant!

I am NCGI (apparently!!) and I am in for life too - feels good doesn't it?

I have had all sorts of symptoms resolve since September, and even more since January, when I started a 'clean' paleoish diet

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
