In Topic: Muscle/joint Pain When Glutened

05 August 2014 - 05:44 AM

Alesusy it sounds rather like you're describing my glutenings! Just feels like everything is locking up. I also get jaw pain - I tend to grind my teeth in my sleep when I'm stressed and I think this is the same thing. I'm planning to get fitted with a night time gum guard (attractive! Haha) when I can afford it, my mum finds them really useful.


I'll consider the drugs too, especially when I'm working full time next year. And I'll tell my boyfriend that massages are a medical necessity! Hehe. Thanks.

Not much to add other than what's already been said other than sympathy - got 'got' two weeks ago today and still feeling the need to massage my cramping shoulder/neck muscles! Horrible, isn't it? Someone in a thread I just posted about muscle pain suggested alternating warmth and coldness on the area and that seems to be working. I did a little bit of yoga too and that helped. Hope you feel better soon.

Well done her! I think maybe she/you should treat the family-style meals (do you mean cooked by coaches/host families or something?) as you would do eating out - making sure those preparing it are fully aware of her needs. Maybe there is something from this site you could send in advance to help them prepare as she'll need to be eating properly to play well :) Is she formally diagnosed with coeliac? Might be worth mentioning if she is, just to add weight to the importance of safe food for her. 


I travel a fair bit for running events and my go-to is a jar of peanut butter, a jar of jam (jelly!) and rice cakes/gluten-free crackers. I also take rice/quinoa/gluten-free pasta and a sauce with me if I'll be able to cook. If she can have oats, gluten free oats can make decent porridge if you pour boiling water over them, stir and leave for two minutes (put sugar on it or something, or the peanut butter/jam mixed in). Oh and popcorn! I take tubs of that with me (ideas coming straight from my brain to the page here haha). Can she arrange to buy fresh fruit and veg daily there to supplement all these storecupboard things? Eggs? Good luck!

Hey Matt, I had these http://www.hollandan...psules-60001540 and liked them - there's a whole variety of them in the shop but I just went with the cheapest. Definitely worth it, going to start using them again I think.

Thank you everyone :) Looking forward to making these! HavaneseMom - yes, here we call french fries chips (and they're big and chunky) and chips are crisps. I love peanut butter and jelly (jam!) but it's not as popular here. Cheese and jam is also popular (it's like a poor man's brie and cranberry haha)
