My son is 3.5 yrs and has been complaining of leg pains for over a year, at first my dr blew this off and did not think it was anything, she said to keep a journal to see what time of day he complained and if it was one or both legs, etc. Well, when he started complaining again we did blood work and x rays etc, and everything came out OK, so we never really did get an answer, but he doesn't really complain anymore, just once in a blue moon, and I still don't know what's causing it. But he does not have an altered gait or anything. Good Luck getting your answers, I hope your dr will be find something more definitive, we just ruled out a few bad things, but never got to the root cause of it. It seems like that happens alot.
I was wondering if anyone else has delt with severe leg pains with the Celiac? My daughter (2.5) has been have leg cramps for about a year. she will twist her hip and lock her legs and stay that way for up to 30 mintues. her doctors first thought just growing pains for a while, but when she saw her normal doctor she asked right away why she was walking funny. She has had xrays of the leg, normal, and bone denitsy test that showed that she is in the 25% of density. She complains all the time that her legs hurt, walking funny (almost like she doesnt bend her knees), and hates walking up and down stairs, and does not bend her knee all the time when she jumps. i feel so stressed out trying to find out whats wrong. she is on the low end on all her nutrional values too!! just trying to find a answer. we have a meeting in Chicago (we live in Columbus OH) on Monday with a new GI Celiac disease specialist, so hopefully we can get some answers. i hope i am not just being overbarring of my daughters help. any suggestions would help. Thank you so much, i love this celiac blog, it is so helpfull!!
