Am I Ever Going To Feel Like "me" Again? :-(

27 September 2011 - 09:13 AM

I've had over 10 years of illness... back and forth to every kind of doctor there is to see if someone could help me. I had no way of linking all of my health issues to "one condition" such as Celiac. ....Finally a diagnosis... I've been gluten free for a year now and today, i feel sad.... Probably because I am in physical pain. Will I ever feel like me again? I've shrunk in height (which explains the horrible bone, joint, foot pain), and now I am experiencing back pain along with it. I am in physical therapy -- I am only 37 years old and I weigh 138 lbs. I feel like my body will never be the same. My foot pain came back -- some days are worse than others. I am assuming this nerve pain is permanent considering it is not improving anymore than "what is".. although I'll admit that it feels 10x worse when I eat gluten accidentally. I am a generally happy person, however, this bodily pain has put a damper on my social/active life. I used to love soccer and now I think to myself, "Oh Gosh, how bad am I going to feel the next morning after a soccer game?" ..or "What if I sprain my ankle again?" ....there is often times a loss of feeling in my feet (or the opposite which is stabbing, burning pain). Anyone else experience this type of thing? Words of encouragement out there? Thanks, guys! Melissa. :)

Foot Pain, Anyone?

02 May 2011 - 03:19 PM

I've had foot pain for years, but over the past few years it had progressively gotten worse until I was finally diagnosed by my local doctor with Celiac Disease. Once following the strict gluten free diet, I found it was also helping the mysterious foot pain and slow ankle sprains healing in my feet. Am I the only one to notice/have this?

Can't Control Hypoglycemia And Celiac Together? Help :o(

21 October 2010 - 04:10 AM

I was diagnosed with Celiac on 9 September 2010. I've had Hypoglycemia (as a result of Pancreatitis) about 6 years ago. I'm strictly following the Hypoglycemia/Celiac Diet yet my body is still going crazy. I can't seem to control my blood sugar at all and I dont know why?? My body is up and down, hormonal, and on a psychological rollercoaster these days for some reason. What am I doing wrong? Any diet ideas? Personal stories? Insomnia has kicked in because my sugar levels are not balanced. Melissa
