It's Happening Again.....
0

9 posts in this topic

The last few days, I have been getting that familiar tingle/burning down my arms. Last night, my neck started hurting. Through the night, I went to change positions and the shooting pain through my neck actually woke me out of my sleep and I amost bolted out of bed with the pain.

I have been up since then. I have iced, heated, showered with the water massager, everything. My neck is so killing me I can't move my head or shoulders at all. Also, my jaw is locking again and my teeth hurt again.

Terry was taking the kids to his parents today so I can have a free day to do whatever I wanted. I had so many plans for gardening, etc. I guess that ain't happening!

Can someone recommend to me a good OTC anti-inflammatory/muscle relaxer that is gluten-free? I usually don't take them because they do bother my stomach but in this case, I think that is the lesser of two evils...... I have taken 2 Tylenol 2's and it hasn't even touched the pain.......

:huh:

Sorry, no suggestions but I do identify at the moment with the clicking jaw and a knee that feels as if it's falling to bits, it comes on suddenly when I've eaten almost the same as normal - can't place the issues.

Hoping you get better soon

I also don't have any suggestions, but just want to offer any support ;). I went to http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com , not that celiac is a wrong diagnosis ;), but just to see what they had for burning/tingling symptoms--this seeemed closest to your description, but you might want to check out the other possibliites:

And then for the jaw they have an introduction:

I won't be able to help too much :( but with symptoms that recur like this, there's probably something going on... maybe you'd find something there that helps you or maybe your dr. can be a little more...proactive in finding an answer to this...

Feel better! :unsure:

Gapspan -

this is the first I've seen on the clicking/popping jaw... I have been dealing with that for a few years too. Is this something related to celiac ??

I'm a newbie (just officially diagnosed last week) - do you have any information on how this is connected ? ( I also have clicking in my knee - but just thought that was normal wear & tear)...

thanks for any info...

According to my acupuncturist, the jaw thing is related to the system that is affected by celiac. Sorry to be vague, but I just don't remember at the moment what she said exactly. I have the jaw thing too. The fun just never ends :)

Pre gluten-free I know I had my jaw lock on me a few times...thinking about it, it happened after lunch <_< I think it can be celiac related.

As far as clicking in the knee. My mom's knees used to crack like crazy(not painful though just cracking) when she walked up the stairs and bent down..now, that doesn't happen as much. She has been taking EFA's and she has been gluten free with me and has seen major improvement with that.

I also have the popping/clicking knees. When I bend down, you can hear my knees pop clear across the room! It is not painful in any way, just annoying....

My jaw, on the other hand........ :angry:

2nd posting

Karen,

I use Skelaxin for those pains, neck, shoulder, back and legs. I have a prescription for two pills three times a day. I always try to take the minimum dose (1/2 tab) and it is usually works. If I take 2 then I can't function. My husband also takes them. It is a muscle relaxer, Not sure if it is gluten-free but I've never had a problem.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
