Joint Pain

OK this will sound weird but since going gluten-free two weeks ago my tummy feels great but my head is foggy, tremors in hands, light headedness, joint pain.

Why are all of these symptoms coming when I eliminate gluten? So confused...any ideas?

By the way, I also have an abundance of yeast...what do you eat on a yeast free diet? I'm assuming no sugar/no bread but that is very hard.

Also, what is casein in? That's a new term for me.

Ok, so what on earth is left to eat if you cut out gluten, casein, soy, eggs??? Veggies and meat? I could NOT live on only that. I'd rather just get sick.

Since you have been glutenfree for two weeks, your body might be in detox stage. The symptoms you are having could very well be your body finally eliminating the gluten from your system, and trying to adjust to not having to fight it any more. If you truly prefer being sick over not eating the foods that make you sick, then have at it. It's your body, do as you please with it, just don't complain to me about being sick. Of course, if you are like me and are just blowing off steam and frustration over the severe restrictions of the diet, then I really sympathize. It is very hard to do, and sometimes I wonder if death would just be a better option. I feel that this is a normal feeling, and I must work through it, and stop looking at the negative side. Instead of thinking of all the foods I cannot have, I focus on the foods I can have. I ate a very delicious fruit cup at Wendy's today, and did not worry one whit about gluten. There are positives, you just have to look for them.

:blink: All I can say is WOW!!! I almost feel guilty with the few symptoms I have! Can anyone tell me if there is a relavance to the amount/severity of symptoms and the severity of damage to the intestines?? I guess what I'm trying to get at... if I'm not feeling as sick as some from any contamination with gluten, am I also not having as much damage done to my intestines?

Basically I know I've been "glutinated" when I rush to the bathroom first thing in the AM. Diarhea... I know I've been REALLY "glutinated" when I go a second or maybe a third time.

I do have irritability often, however I can also blame that on PMS, stress of owning my own business, working 16 hour days 7 days/week, financial burdens, etc....

I think I'm most frustrated by the pain in my left shoulder, however I've also been told this is tendonitis/bursitis/frozen shoulder... My job is very physical and it seems like I'm always getting hurt, hands, neck, shoulders, back. I also have a VERY hard time sticking to a vitamin regime due to very irregular meal times. Next month I get blood work done to see what my vitamin levels are at... I'm hoping my body is starting to absorb more nutrition from my food and I won't have to take so many pills everyday. It's been almost 13 months gluten-free, and for the past two months I've let me vitamins slide completely... I tell myself it's to be ready for the bloodwork, however it's more a lack of ability to get them in my face daily! <_<

I really appreciate this board, I've been gluten-free for a year and in denial for 15 years, I don't know what took me so long to learn more about the people who suffer from this bizarre disease! I can't believe the variety of symptoms, no wonder it's so misdiagnosed! :o

Looking forward to learning more from the REAL experts! :D

    • 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.
