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.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
