Nerve Pain In First Few Months Of Recovery?
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I was diagnosed with Celiac disease on March 10, 2013, so I'm a nubee.   Since that time, I've adhered to a very strict gluten-free diet.  I've had to recreate meal times, but my excema went away as did my arthritis and many of my tummy troubles.  My anemia is slowly getting better.  In the past week or two, I've started to experience moderate nerve pain in my feet (mostly), but also my lower back and legs, with some mild tingling and numbness associated with the pain.  It was consistent with the type of pain I experienced before with the arthritis, only with more nerve pain.  I do not think I ate any gluten, as I am very careful, and careful when cooking gluten for my family and careful with other products such as cosmetics, etc.  Is it possible that celiac could cause the nerve pain and is there any reason this would "flare" up after I have been gluten-free, except for the accidental gluten I ate on May 2nd.  :-)  It's been 6+ weeks, so I don't think that would cause the nerve pain this far down the road.  Anyone else experience this.  Thanks.  Ruthie

could be an unknown glutening.....perhaps a B12 def.

Could it be a bulging disc and sciatic pain? I had a lot of sciatic pain for years until a disc finally burst and pinched off a nerve. The pain, and now numbness, started in my big toe, over the top of my foot, to my shin and then up the side of my thigh and into my buttocks. If it is something like that, you might want to get it checked so you don't end up with any permanent damage.... I don't have much experience with nerve pain but I thought I'd mention that just in case.

 

I hope it feels better soon.

If you are cooking gluten for your family, and have it in the house..,inevitably you're going to get a hit. The nerve pain may or may not be gluten...but you'll never know since gluten is in your house - especially if you're playing with it.

At 6 weeks gluten-free it is impossible to predict how your body reacts to a glutening. Oops, just rerread - you've been gluten-free for 3 months. That's still very early....things will keep changing.

I'd try getting the gluten out of the house. See what happens. It's the most likely culprit.
