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...

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
