Hi all! So I finally got the courage up to exercise again after a long time of not because of pain. I haven't exercised like I should in a long time because it took me five years to be diagnosed and I'm now a year and two months into recovery. However, I tried to start exercising again a few weeks ago and my first week I did 4 times of fast, but not power walking for 20 minutes. The second week I went up to power walking, but had to stop after three times (I did every other day) because of the terrible pain I was in. Now I played basketball in school so I'm familiar with all the stretching and normal "over doing it" pain. I did stretch, I drank extra water, all of that, but I had terrible pain that felt like I was being glutened. All my symptoms I have when I am glutened came back...terrible intestinal pain, fatigue, join pain, brain fog--however I did not change introduce any other new foods so I know I'm not glutened. The worst part is The pain is still lingering now two weeks later just as strong as it was right after I exercised.

Anyone have any ideas or solutions to help my pain? I'd really like to get back to exercising because six years and counting is too long not to exercise!

Thanks!!

My kids and I have noticed the same thing. I don't know if it is because exercise makes symptoms more obvious, or if it is that exercising makes the symptoms worse. The cure for us was to be more diligent about cc.

I managed to do a mini triathlon after not even being able to run around the block. My son did a 5 K after not being able to run a mile without throwing up. My daughter is the third faster runner on her cross country team. Before cleaning her diet up she was at the end of the pack.

Good luck. It is so nice to be able to exercise again.

This may be a silly thing to ask, but are you working at home or at a gym? I only ask because I joined a gym for the first time in November. The first day there I got thirsty and took a drink out of the water fountain. And got glutened! I realized later that the fountain was across from a granola bar vending machine, so people were probably getting a little snack and a drink... oops, gluten! :lol: Ever since that I remember to bring my own water bottle, and haven't had any problems at all. And now I know to avoid public water fountains in general, which remarkably I'd never thought of before.

dilettantesteph--I was previously thinking I may be super sensitive. Maybe this is the tip that's showing me. Thanks for assuring me I'm not alone though...sometimes I feel my adventures are odd in this gluten free venture!

deinanthe--interesting, I've never thought of that, however I'm working out at home. *sign* another thing to worry about in public! I have little motivation to work out let alone leave the house to do so! I record stuff on the dvr and save my favorite shows for the treadmill.
