Can you tell us a bit more so we can try and help?
What reasons did you doctor give for going gluten free? Do you have celiac disease?
Would you like to try totally gluten-free? we can answer questions to help out, and there is lots of information on the forum.
Is it just your feet, or do you have other symptoms?
One foot complaint I had, and several others have mentioned is plantar faciitis, which is pain in the heel, which is often worse 1st thing in the morning. Mine is much better since gluten-free, and I have had a lot less problems with inflammation.
Edited to add, there is something called silent celiac, where you don't experience symptoms, but can still be doing long term damage. If you do have celiac, you need to be gluten-free. Many people have other health issues which benefit from being gluten-free, such as non celiac gluten intolerance.
- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.
