Body Aches Without A Fever?

Hello -

I wanted to get some feedback from anyone who might have experienced what I am going through right now. For the past week I have had horrible back pain, body aches and fatigue but no fever. I feel awful! I went in for a urinalysis because the back pain feels like it's radiating into my sides so they thought I could have a kidney infection but that came back normal.

Now my doctor wants to see me today but I'm worried about it. I'm guessing a lot of you may feel the same way - that you were sick your whole life until they finally tested you for celiac and figured out that pretty much all your problems stemmed from that! They finally tested me at age 22 but until then I was so sickly with all kinds of weird things (for several years I went to about 11 doctors on a regular basis). Now I'm 30 and have really been very healthy up until the past year to year and a half (only a regular doctor and a gynocologist for check-ups! woo-hoo!!). I was having GI issues and went through a bunch of testing (all normal!) and now I'm starting with this! They did all the testing to see if I was getting glutened and of course I wasn't-I am extremely careful. I'm so frusterated because I know my body and I know I'm not a hypochondriac but sometimes I feel like doctors think that I am. It just feels like it did before, I would start with one symptom - they would patch that, then I would start with another, they'd patch then and so on a so forth until they found out the root cause....

Does anyone have any experience with this or any advice???

Thanks!

I started getting severe pains, not only in my back, but basically all over, though not all at the same time. They went away quickly once I started on B12 and magnesium. I've also read that deficiencies in other B vitamins, vitamin D, calcium, and other things can cause such pains. Problem is, blood tests do not always indicate a deficiency, even when the supplements help.

I hope you get it figured out soon!

I dont get back pain but I get aches in joints and major fatigue on my self-subscribed gluten-free diet. I've been told the healing process after going gluten free can be painful and difficult, as in, you get better before you get worse.

Also listening to riceguy's advice might help. Deficiency in some minerals can make for a whole load of problems, especially when gluten effects your Villi that absorb the nutrients from your food.
