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...

too much too quick, build up slowly, you wouldnt run a marathon without training for it before hand and its the same thing. dont worry you be back boarding again and partying soon.

    • Ugh!  So, you have early stages of celiac disease and that was after being gluten light?  It is a shame that your doctor is not comfortable about giving you a formal diagnosis because you don't have enough damage!  Time for a new GI.  You can also as for another pathologist to read your biopsies, but seriously....... Have a conversation with your current doctor about the reasons why he is hesitating.  He would rather you continue to become more ill or improve your health?   Are you going to be scarred for life with a celiac disease diagnosis? Maybe he is one of those people who think it is impossible to live with wheat, rye or barley!   I don't get it! 
    • Thanks for the comments. With Dr. Google, I have seen mast cell disorder pop up.  It seems like I need to eliminate some basics before heading in that direction. So, another question...is it possible that symptoms of celiac need time to "build up" over time? For instance,  I started reintroducing gluten and coffee last week to prepare for my GI appt.  However, nothing really seemed to happen except a little knee crankyness (which I can easily attribute to hiking).  Yet, yesterday I had a huge bagel at work, had itchy forearms, and then had two huge hives appear later.  Today, I had another bagel and in a few hours I had a few red fingers that were itchy and numb feeling in the tips.   I know histamine intolerance is a possibility, but wouldn't that show up as an extremely large hive with my allergy skin test? Also, I had to go into work today and yesterday. I'm wondering if that environment could contribute to the issue (I'm a high school teacher).  
    • Hi Fidel, The original poster hasn't been on the site for several years, so you may not get a response from them. But welcome to the forum!  
    • False positive or negative?  I was diagnosed with Coeliac and the more rare Dermatitis Herpetiforma.  I know that symptoms like youre describing could be a whole variety of conditions.  I have a friend who has ulcerative colitis whose symptoms are similar to what you are describing.  You could have ulcers, but keeping it real i have to say youre also describing opiate withdrawl.  So if youve been on pain killers prescibed or not that could be it also.  Best of luck
    • Hi Megan, Regarding dairy, celiac disease damages the villi that make the lactase enzyme that digests milk sugar (lactose).  So sometimes people can't digest dairy well when they first start the gluten-free diet.   Over time that may change as you heal.  The ability to digest dairy doesn't always come back, but it may. Throwing up can be caused by excess gas in the stomach.  That's pretty common when starting the diet.  Sugar and carbs will make it worse.  Udi's bagels are made of various flours so they are full of carbs.  Carbs are turned into sugar in the body and that feeds the bacteria, hence the gas. You could be reacting to various foods, so eliminating one problem food is not going to fix all the problems.  I think it would be more helpful to start by following the tips in my earlier post than to  try a full fledged elimination diet at this point.  Elimination diets can take a while to do. If you can stick to eating meats, vegetables, nuts for now that is a good thing.  No processed foods (like Udi's) or other baked goods.  This is probably the fastest way to get better and learn what is safe to eat.  Once you are feeling better for a few weeks then you can try adding in one new food a week and see how it goes.  The gluten-free diet is a lifetime commitment so you may as well start out right and take your time.  Whole foods are a good way to go at the beginning.  If you cook your own food you know what is in it.  That's important to know for us.  Avoiding any processed food with more than 3 ingredients is also good.  The fewer ingredients you are eating the simpler it is to figure out a problem. I wouldn't worry about the idea of the throwing up thing making you react to dairy.  Celiac is known to cause a problem with dairy intolerance.
