I had the same problem.  I took osteo biflex for about a month and noticed a difference.  Maybe it would help.  It's an OTC supplement.  Good luck.

It's awesome when someone offers me food or beverage that I really want nothing to do with. "Oh, yeah, I have Celiacs Disease - seriously - can't have that - its just bad news!


In Topic: Muscle Cramping And Bone Pain

Hi Cycling Lady,

 

I understand that two months is wholly insufficient to resolve my symptoms. I am feeling better everyday, though.

 

My questions isn't about solving old symptoms.  My question is about completely new symptoms as a result of post-diagnosis dietary modifications.

 

I've never had these symptoms pre-diagnosis.  

 

- foot cramps in the arch of my foot, nearly every-night, between 02:00 and 04:00.

- muscle spasms in my arms, fingers and thumbs during the day. 

 

So my question is; why would I be having these completely new symptoms as a result of a gluten free diet?

 

Does that help clarify my query?  

 

 

I was test for vitamin B and D deficiencies pre-diet modification.  The results were on the low range of normal.  Nevertheless, my physician suggested I take the additional supplements.

 

Durrsakja, Thanks for the suggestion RE: magnesium.  I'll read up a bit more.

 

Thanks everyone.

 

 

Hi - This happened to me as well.  Here are some thoughts to ponder that may help...
 
1. Make sure you are making an extra effort to stay hydrated.  I don't mean drink gallons at a time but make sure you get adequate water.
2. Eat bananas.  Make fruit smoothies at your house and drink those once and awhile as a change up.
3. Consider taking some Osteo-Biflex - discuss it with your physician - it's OTC and helps me considerably.
4. Work out but not to the extent of injury or extreme pain but push yourself a little more every day.  
5. Make sure you are eating enough calories to support the calories you will burn by being active.
 
Post diagnosis I had bone/joint/muscle pain.  I was quite alarmed.  Over time it has mostly gone away.  It took several months to a year for it to work its way out but it did.  I have had the cramps at night in my muscles the pains that can only be described as bone, etc.  I am slightly osteopeanic and have been gluten-free for 2 years now.  I have celiac disease as well.  Diagnosed at Mayo.

In Topic: What Are The Consequences Of A Lax Approach To The gluten-free Diet?

It takes 1/8 of 1 teaspoon to create a chemical response in your body to Gluten whether you feel that effect or not--it's there.  I have seen research (although I can't cite it, sorry) that said eating (1) cheat meal per month increases the mortality of someone with celiac disease by 600% in long term studies.

 

It seems like I found these stats on a .gov site.  The point is this, don't be lax or cheat if you are Celiac.  Ever.  Ever.  Ever.

I cannot disagree with the logic behind going ahead and running both panels just to be safe.  Good idea.
