I've been off gluten totally for a little over two weeks.Some interesting results have come from this.Without going into detail lets just say my BM are no longer pale in color or smelly.Now I'm more regular and seemingly less bloated and more hungry than I used to be so I see all this as positive. Now I have a few questions for those who have been down this road before.I understand that people who are celiac develope other intolerences and or allergies because the intestine lining is frankly butchered from the attacks.With that said I still have one odd problem and that's muscle soreness/ fatgue.I believe I narrowed it down to one of three foods (eggs,potatoes,caffeine) as I'm already off dairy.My question is can those foods produce widespread muscle pain? Not fybro pain,but actual pain.The reason I ask these questions is I've read on numerous sites that one comes to crave the food(s) they are allergic to.I grave a lot ,potatoe chips and I mean a lot!! Ill eat a bag a day no problem.(kettle chips non gluten).Also I noticed that after I ate bacon&eggs Thursday,the very next day I had body pains (but I also ate chips everyday).I eat eggs sat/sun every week usually but would the symptoms keep going all week? Thanks for any answers

Potatoes belong to the nightshade family of foods (plants that grow at night - potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, etc.) and are known to be pro-inflammatory. You might try cutting out the potatoes, especially if you are craving them which, as you say, is often a sign of a toxic reaction. I do not eat any of the nightshade foods and it has made such a difference to my psoriatic arthritis. :)

It could be a matter of time too. I've had pretty bad joint pain in the past; the kind where it's difficult to hold a pen, and it hurts to carry a couple of paperbacks in a bag. I'm not sure if it was caused by celiac or other autoimmune problems (I have Hashi's and suspect another) but my joint pain has improved a great deal lately. If it was caused by celiac, it took over 6 months of eating gluten-free (and 4 months dairy free) before I saw any improvement. It actually got worse in the first few months on the gluten-free diet.

I would try cutting out potatoes for a few months and see if there is any improvement... It beats waiting 6 months like I did. LOL You might want to reduce caffeine too; high consumption of caffeine is often advised against for those with AI diseases.

Good luck. :)
