Is Bone Pain A Symptom Of Celiacs?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

  I'm new to this site, so forgive me if there has already been topics about this... My grandma and older sister have recently been diagnosed with celiacs disease, so the idea is relatively new to our family, and my mom is starting to connect some of her symptoms to it so she thinks she may have it as well. I have yet to be tested, but I read that it is a hereditary disease, and there are symptoms of it that I have so I think I might have it as well...

 I wanted to check with people who know more about it, is bone pain a symptom? I read there are many different symptoms, so I wasn't sure. Towards the end of this school year (My jr. year, I'm 18) I would have sudden bone pain in my left femur when I was walking around the school hallways. Then it was my femur, the rest of my leg bones, and my hip, and then the right side leg, and now even my feet bones and ankles! It would flair up when walking to the point where I had to limp. Now I've been doing summer school PE ( make-up credits for not being in the public school system freshman year :P ) and it's gotten worse. Now my bones hurt even when I'm just sitting down and relaxing. And when I'm trying to run in PE, it'll come suddenly and I feel like I'll fall flat on my face because my legs/hips don't feel like they'll support me. Sometimes it's just specific spots in the leg/hip/ankles that will flare up suddenly and painfully, and the rest of the time they'll all just be dull, uncomfortable aches. 

Has this happened to anyone?  I'm not totally gluten free yet, my family hasn't made the switch over all the way, we're still working on it. I have a doctors appt. scheduled in July... But I wanted to check with other people about this so I can bring up Celiacs disease as a possible reason. 

Sorry about the length! Thanks so much for your help!

there are about 300 or so symptoms of celiac disease. Please do not stop eating wheat before being tested in July. IF you have already stopped eating gluten before, your testing is worthless & a waste of insurance money. You need to be consuming a large amount of gluten for proper testing results...plus you may not have celiac disease but be gluten sensitive. There is no test for that but an elimination diet...
