Hello everyone.
I have been experiencing joint/muscle stiffness and foot pain resembeling a stress fracture (right on the top of my foot). It is very noticable when I stand from sitting and it will hurt at times while Im resting. I have been gluten free for approx 2 weeks.(I have made some wrong choices as I am just learning, so my diet hasn't been 100% gluten free).I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this same discomfort, and if it improved after going gluten free?
Thanks!!

I had random stabbing pains and muscle cramps in my feet shortly after going gluten-free. It would happen when i was just sitting there. I found that massaging my feet and rubbing them over a tennis ball seemed to help, at least with the cramps.

For me, I turned out to have gout - that was diagnosed 17 years ago, about the time I wish I would have been diagnosed with celiac disease.

My gout pain is not limited to the big toe, it can be anywhere in my foot, ankle, or knee.

The specific pain flares would last anywhere from 2-3 days to as long as 8-10 days.

Check with your doctor about your B-12 levels. Better yet, get a full Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, to check for deficiencies.

Okay, I have the answer! I have the answer!!! Yes, I also experienced actual stress fractures in both feet only weeks after being diagnosed with celiac. They were, in fact, stress fractures....and I attributed them to low calcium (my teeth were totally decalcified) and perhaps low Vitamin D. However, fast-forward to two years ago when I got glutened after being gluten free for six years. A month after being accidentally glutened, both of my feet ended up with stress fractures....and I was clueless about which nutrients I may be having malabsorption issues with. It took me eight months to figure out that what I was experiencing was Floppy Tendon Syndrome caused by malabsorption of manganese (not magnesium) and zinc. What you're describing sounds very similar to the way my own feet felt. I began taking chelated manganese and chelated zinc, and within a week my feet began to recover. The pain was completely gone after two weeks. If I were you, I'd take calcium, magnesium (calcium should always be taken with magnesium), Vitamin D, chelated manganese, and chelated zinc....and I believe you'll feel right as rain in just a few weeks. Believe me--muscle pain and foot pain tend to indicate largely low manganese and low zinc.

I had similar problems! I later found out that I was also lactose intolerant and wasn't absorbing calcium. I'm now taking Caltrait and Borage oil with a pre-natal vitamin.
