Dairy And Joint Pain
0

5 posts in this topic

So my joints ache all the time and have done most of my life (I'm 34). It's gotten worse since I've been gluten free and started eating tonnes of vegetables - because an awful lot of those veges are tomato and bell pepper. So I've just started to go nightshade free, slowly (still have some spices)

I'm also trying to psych myself up to go dairy free. I'm lactose intolerant, but I also mostly follow the paleo eating guidelines and I've read a lot about dairy - it seems like there's a lot of reasons to give it up.

Anyway, in the last 36 hours I've eaten neither nightshades (beyond a teensy bit of spice) nor dairy and today I noticed my joints felt a lot better Then this morning I made mini cheesecakes (cream cheese, egg, vanilla, splenda) and about an hour ago I ate 3 of them (maybe an ounce and a bit each?) and besides my stomach now killing me, my hips and knees are back to being all creaky again.

Could dairy cause sudden joint pain like that? Or is it more likely a coincidence? (well, pretty sure stomach ache is the cream cheese). I feel like the fact that dairy is so painful to give up means it's bad for me. My experiences are that if I love it, it's bad. I could write a book. The Addiction Diet: Don't eat anything you really like.

The weather causes me joint discomfort. And it's changing. Check with your doctor and have him/she run a full panel. Maybe you might find a deficiency that can be easily corrected.

Have you tried going off dairy for several weeks? You might want to try that...and to add an other suggestion to that, it's flu season too.

Hope you feel better soon. :)

I'm actually in Australia where it's supposedly summer, though given it's been surely the coldest, wettest spring/summer ever, your point is still entirely valid :) I think I know all my deficiencies and they were on their way to resolution last time I saw the doc, but I haven't actually mentioned the joint pain since I complained of it when I was little so I will do that when I see my doc in early Jan. I was talking to my mother about the pain I complained about when I was a kid, and even then (I was 8, maybe?) I remember feeling like the doctor didn't really have any idea of the cause.

Interesting, GFreeMO. I'm sorry for your pain, but it does help to know that is a symptom people get.

i too have been having the same joint pain when i eat any of the allergens

you got that right about don't eat anything you really like or tastes good

elmateing diets are a pain but it really helps to try and figure out what your body does and does not like

i have not been very careful and have used hubby's butter (big no no ) i have used hubby's peanut butter big no no and i have also used coffee whitener big no no my brain thinks oh it wont hurt just a little wont hurt but then when you do body hurts real bad i did not relize that there would be wheat crumbs in that and sure enough there was

i may have even used a fork that was used to perece potatoes for hubby

i have tryed gluten soy egg yeast free bread only to come to find out there was potato starch in it yup nightshade oh the deadly nightshade its akiller to me thats for sure after injesting nightshades i can not even dress my self cant type cant do hair cant do anything im in so much pain its awful and seeing as my system is so very senestive i can not even take any thing for pain it sure is frustrateing

hope you are feeling some what better and can figure out what is causeing this pain

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.

      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.

      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.
