Do NOT try to over- exercise until your muscles have healed some more!! I made this mistake so many times.

I will tell you what my doc said to me:
Slow and steady wins the race.

Yeah, I don't like that either, but it is what it is.
We have to be patient with tissue and muscle repair.

I want to share something else with you. This young woman came on the sit e a few weeks ago. At 34, she had spent 4 years in pain, unable to pick up her own child. I saw her post. She was trying so hard to get a DX, but to no avail She knew it was gluten.

She just wrote me an email this morning as I had asked her to keep me posted. 16 days gluten-free and her life has turned around. She no longer needs her pain meds and is not in agony every day. Now, I am crying!

Stay the course and take it slow. Your body is going through major changes--between no gluten and quitting smoking, it's wondering what the sam hill is going on. :)

I want to say congrats to all the people out there that have been able to kick this unhealthy habit.
I finally stopped smoking in March of 2009 and have not had one since! I smoked for 14 years straight at an average of 1 pack a day.
Quitting was soooo hard but I did it. And like others have said, "If you can stop eating gluten, you can stop smoking".
During my quit I told myself "I only feel this way because I smoked and not because I quit."
It is easy to say, I feel horrible because I stopped smoking but in reality you feel this way because you started to smoke.
Good luck to you and remember it is a long process but you can do it =)

Gluten Free going on 5 years and counting!

gluten-free is a life change and not a diet.
