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.

    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
