It sure does feel great to be feeling near normal again. It was a short jog and I can tell I still have some ataxia going on still. Did an hour walk yesterday and hoping to continue to move forward from here!

Congratulations! Wow! That is just wonderful!

I remember after my 16 year old had been gluten free for 4 months and he told me he felt like jogging I almost fell over! It was the saddest and happiest feeling in the world to watch my son go for a jog when he had been sick most of his life with asthma and muscle weakness and had never been able to participate in sports. He is 17 now and gluten free one year. He is wrestling in school and jogging every day and feels just ecstatic that his body works again. He had ataxia too...but it is all gone now!

If I hadn't found this site we would both still be living in hell.

Seriously I am happy for you! It must have felt wonderful to be able to use your body again. Hang in there...it gets better and better! We are are so happy about being able to exercise! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and told it would not get any better. That was in 2007. Well, after one year I have no sign of muscle problems unless I get gluten. I haven't actually jogged yet, but it feels great to be able to go for a walk when I want to!

I do eight mile walks now on the weekend. It's a wonderfully relaxing way to start the day. Time to myself to think, or just experience the day.

Any other joggers/ former joggers here who want to get back into their running shoes??

I would absolutely love to start running again. Nothing makes me feel the same way as my nice runner's high I used to get post-run. Unfortunately I developed PFS (runner's knee) so I had to stop running, and then my celiac syptoms (this is pre DX) started to flare up. I was so fatigued all of the time I couldn't even imagine putting on my shoes. I do yoga and I love it to death. But I need to supplement with cardio. Otherwise I feel sluggish. My physiotherapist said I'll never be able to run on a treadmill again which is devastating to me. He said I either have to run outside on a trail, or be indoors on an elliptical or stationary bike. But I want my treadmill!!! :(

I'm thinking about starting to get back into it. But I'm wondering if I should be worried about it being "too soon". I've only been gluten-free for 28 days and I feel like I have a bit of energy back, but I tried some circuit training and my heart palpitations are still pretty bad. But I don't want to get into a downward spiral - not workout due to heart palps, cardio endurance suffers which makes heart more prone to palps (?), then have palps when working out so stop...etc...etc...
