Joint Injuries

3 posts in this topic

OK I am not a fitness person, but I am having some serious issues with my joints, I have to wear a carpal tunnel brace on my left hand due to tendinitis, I keep ankle braces handy, I twist, pull, stain my ankles all the time it kind runs in the family. Just today I sprained my knee. Does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of vitamin I need to take to get my strength back in my joints.

Hi there,

Glucosamine can help with joint health and pain. I'd recommend talking to your DR about physiotherapy as well. The best thing for healing injured joints is to strengthen the muscles around those joints to provide them more support. Swimming and other low-impact exercises can help strengthen without causing more pain or injury. Good luck!

Oftentimes problems with joints can be resolved with taking Manganese, which is essential for joint health. Bovine collagen can be helpful, too. Have you been tested yet for thyroid problems? Having thyroid issues can cause carpal tunnel and other tendon problems. It's very common for people with celiac to have thyroid problems (especially Hashimoto's Thyroiditis).

I suffered from tendinitis in my wrists, knees, elbows, shoulders, and hips for most of my life--and then I discovered that all I needed to do was avoid gluten, taken bovine collagen and Manganese, and treat my thyroid for Hashimoto's. No more pain ever!

    • In addition to cheese made with yogurt, hard cheeses like cheddar, romano, parmesaen etc are also going to be lactose free. Eggs are also a good source of protein if you eat them. Do bear in mind that celiac can really mess with your head. It can cause depression and anxiety that can get worse for a short time when you first go gluten free. your life is not over by any means. The reason why you see more people on boards and in forums that are having problems is because most when they heal go on with their lives. We don't hear from them with the exception of a few that stick around to help people that are still struggling. Hang in there it will get better.
    • You are sick.  Depression and anxiety are symtoms of celiac disease (and many other illnesses).  It is hard now to look forward and imagine a great life, but it is possible.  I think you are already in the thick of the grieving process right now.  Reaching out to this forum can be very healing emotional (it is not just all common sense advice about gluten-free food!).  I did not say not to exercise, but to do it gently.  This is not the time to train for a marathon or triathlon!   The SCD Lifestyle site....it is all about the money.  Seriously.  They are selling a book. 
    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc.
