Foot Pain
0

6 posts in this topic

I have been recently dignosed with Celiac. I am having a terrible time eliminating gluten from my diet and my willpower is almost nothing. However I do have a question about foot pain.

For about a week I have had terrible foot pain. The padded cushiony part right below my toes. (Sorry that probably sounds stupid).

My question is, could this be Celiac related? If yes, any ideas for comfort?

Thanks -

I don't know if it is for sure celiac related, but when I stopped eating gluten and started taking D, B-complex and fish oil, my D was very low so I had an Rx for that to start with, I have felt so much better. I had terrible foot pain for several months. I could barely stand or walk. Have you had your vitamin levels checked to see if you are low in any? The best thing to do about the food is give all the gluteny stuff away, don't keep it in your house. Try to not get stuck on the things you can't have. There are replacements for almost everything. There is also a lot of things that are naturally gluten free. For the foot pain, I liked cold on my feet or massage them with a menthol cream.

Since Celiac causes inflammation it could be related but it also could be something entirely unrelated. If the pain is bad you may want to see a podiatrist (foot doctor) who may be able to tell you what the pain is from and possibly do something to alleviate it.

You also need to get strict with the diet, you are not doing yourself any favors by not following it. There is a lot of naturally gluten free food and it is good to start out with whole unprocessed foods in the beginning. You may also be going through a bit of withdrawl and that will not resolve if you are on and off with the diet. Just about anything you can find with gluten can be found without. If you need suggestions for replacements for your favorite gluten stuff just ask. There are many good items out there. Also if you live somewhere that has a Wegmans they label all their name brand foods that are safe for us.

I have foot pain there also! I am also type I diabetic and also am on thyroid replacment. So there may be several causes. I have had some neuropathy symptoms before diagnosed. I have severe discomfort in my heels. Wondering about heel spurs.

I did have a lot of foot pain that when away on the gluten free diet. I used every sort of insert possible but nothing worked. I went from being able to walk for miles to barely being able to walk around the block. I'm sure glad that went away. After diagnosis I was able to run a 5K. I hope yours goes away too.

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
