Did I Push To Hard Or Is This Not Normal

15 posts in this topic

Ok so i have to admit, since getting sick about 4 months ago, i have not had any really truly physical exertion. besides for biking to and from work everyday that was about it. Yesterday i was in a part of town i had not been in since i was a little lad. so i desided to grab my skateboard and head down there to see if my old skate friend s still live there. indeed they did so we persisted to skate from 9am to around 4 or 5pm. in a blazing 90 degree sun. im burned to a crisp right now, after boarding all day we desided to go swimming on campus, so we hoped into a car and headed to the swimcenter. went swimming for about 2 hours. now i felt slightly sore last night, and i ended up crashing before everyone else (acually they where throwing a party and i could not stay awake and went tobed before it even started) well now this morning im in crap loads of pain. it hurts to brethe, it hurts to move my legs it hurts ot move my arms i am sore all over. Is this caused by my phyiscal exertion? will it go away once my body gets used to working so hard? im gonna go back to laying down it hurts to sit up right

Sounds to me like you just plain overdid it yesterday! If you're not used to that kind of physical cativity, doing hours of skateboarding and then swimming all in one day is going to make you pretty sore. It's always worse after about 24 hours. If you can take a couple Tylenol or other mild pain medication (I use Extra Strength Bufferin for muscle pain), that would take the edge off. Get some rest :)

Yep, you overdid it! The sun takes a lot out of you, too. Use some sunscreen next time if you're going to be out between 11-3!!

sounds like a combination of physical exertion (the soreness is always worse 12-24 hours after, not immediately after, the activity), and possibly sun sickness. if you're really burnt all over, you're body has to deal with that too, and that will make you feel pretty crappy all on it's own. take cool baths, as you can.

Actually, corn is the filler/binder for most pills. Second would probably be tapioca.

Tylenol is definitely gluten-free, but I'm not sure about the rapid release. Advil and aleve are also gluten-free.

The last I checked, the Rapid Release was not gluten-free. Possibly it was too new then--that could have changed, but you'd have to check with them to make sure. Bufferin is gluten-free *except* for the 325mg. tablets. If you can tolerate aspirin, the Bufferin Extra Strength is great for a nasty headache.

I just checked - all I could find is that the rapid release gels are gluten-free in canada, not useful for those of us stateside, though <_<

All the recent Tylenol lists say that Rapid Release Gels haven't been tested yet, but they don't *expect* to find gluten in them, FWIW. Those lists are from late June.

Advil is gluten-free. Not sure if it would be better than Tylenol in your case, but I use it all the time.

with the sunburn and muscle soreness, I would encourage an anti-infammatory as well - so advil or aleve. (ibuprofen or naproxen sodium)

I get awful headaches. I'd be lost without excedrin migraine. Excedrin tension headache for those who can't have aspirin.

I suffered the exact same thing. During my era of Celiac harm (which was around...five months?) I became inactive from pain. Once I actually had energy to do my normal things (rollerblade, swim, run, Colorguard) I became very, very, very sore and tired for a bit. I'm dealing better with it and I think you'll do the same.

Do you know if Excedrin Tension Headache pills are gluten free for sure? I used to use them and they worked well for me. The dose of caffeine helps keep my headaches from turning into migraines. But the makers of Excedrin won't reply to any of my requests for information. :angry: So I stopped asking and I stopped using it. Now I have to have a soda when I feel my headache turning bad and I don't like soda. I can't drink coffee because it irritates my intestines and I just feel trapped! So if you know for sure they are gluten-free, then I can consider using them again. I don't do aspirin.

BTW, they are not on any gluten-free med list I have found either, but almost all (or maybe all) other Excedrin products are gluten-free as far as I can tell...

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
