Hip Pain At 23..help
0

7 posts in this topic

My hips hurt terribly...I got glutened about 3 days ago and it has gotten significantly worse.

I'm way too young to be feeling like this. Hours after a hike it's AWFUL. Aching nagging pain.

Does anyone have this problem? Is there something else I can be doing to help besides making sure to not gluten myself?

I don't know if this will be overly relevant but I'm also dairy free. However, I feel like I'm getting enough calcium through almond/soy milks.

Nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant) are known to cause joint pain in some people. I was having a problem with arthritic-type pain in my fingers and back, and when I stopped eating nightshades it went away. They are cumulative, which means if you give them up for a while to clear your system of them and then eat them just once in a while, you should be OK. Of course, after a glutening, just about anything can cause problems. Maybe go off nightshades until you are over the glutening (give it a couple of weeks), and then try eating them again?

I know this may sound terribly insensitive, but I can't think of anyone I know who would go on a hike 3 days after they were glutened. It's like signing up for extra punishment. What a body needs after that is time to heal, and while you may not have been feeling particularly awful you did something that was very physically demanding when your body was trying cope with the assault that had just happened. It probably wasn't a hike, but this is something a lot of us have done and we all learned our lesson. Take it easy, let your body heal and make sure there has been ample recovery time before doing anything ambitious. Anything underlying will be amplified beyond comprehension after a glutening.

 

There are probably dozens of possible causes for the pain. I get pain in some of my joints from osteoarthritis. Honestly, nothing helps with this. A significant amount of my pain was caused by my histamine problem, and I've been able to manage it through diet. Much like the nightshade thing, it's a sort of cumulative thing and I just have to make sure that my cup not runneth over. Since you're also newly diagnosed and gluten free, it could simply be that you haven't had enough time to start feeling better and with time your hips will be less painful or not painful at all. A trip to the doctor (if s/he isn't a moron) wouldn't hurt just to make sure it isn't anything serious, but from there maybe just see if time helps if you aren't all gung-ho about trying out restricting your diet further.

All good advice!  Maybe you should get a bone scan.  Folks with celiac disease, even if they are kids, can have osteopenia or osteoporosis.  Your doctor may want you to add in more calicium in the form of supplements until you are properly absorbing vitamins and minerals, etc.

Have you had your thyroid antibodies checked?  Joint pain can be a symptom of Hashimoto's for some, and it often co-occurs with celiac.  (Also, for some people with thyroid issues, soy can aggravate things).

I'm 24 and have had problems with my hips for a couple of years now. It's like a deep ache/burning sensation that radiates down my leg - my doctor recently diagnosed me with hip bursitis, yours sounds similar!

I'm one that feels better after a glutening if I exercise. It's like it burns it out or something.

Anyway, sometimes gkuten can cause muscle cramps and hip flexors can cramp up. After I was gluten-free a while, and started working out, my hip pain went away. I think because I was moving and stretching.

You may also have soft tissue issues thanks to autoimmunity - so you may be prone to overdoing. In which case, rest and caution.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
