Joint Pain?!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I went gluten-free, cold turkey 4 years ago. I have been pretty strict about it and if I do happen to eat it I am typically just very tired and groggy the next day. Well, I thought I would give sprouted bread a try. About a couple hours after eating the bread I went to the gym to work-out. I was pretty tired, but wanted to get a work-out in anyway. During the work-out my knees started to hurt. I think the last time I had knee pain was before I went gluten-free, so I was pretty shocked that this was happening. I woke-up the following day with joint pain in my wrist, ankles, and feet and my hands and feet felt swollen, but they didn't look swollen. Could this have been gluten-related? These symptoms are not the reason I even went gluten-free, so I am wondering where all of this came from. My hands are starting to feel a lot lighter and my knees don't hurt nearly as much. All so bizarre!

Yes, it isn't unusual to start experiencing new more severe symptoms after going gluten-free. 

It could also be however that you have overworked your muscles / joints since you were tired. Forcing yourself into vigorous workouts when your body isn't in shape for it can cause sport-injuries so you need to be careful and choose an activity that is kinder to the muscles and joints.

The biggest surprise I received going gluten free was after two weeks on the diet. The joint pains I had in my hips, knees and ankles completely disappeared! I have not had any trouble with joint pain since even when it rains. So, to answer your question, yes. I'd do low impact exercise until you feel better.

It could be from gluten, but it could also be from something else.  Time will tell.  You need to see if it goes away again when you recover from your glutening.  I had a lot of joint pain and swollen joints before I was diagnosed.  I had stopped wearing rings because my fingers were so swollen.  After diagnosis and the gluten free diet the joint pain went away.  I'm wearing rings again.  It comes back if I get glutened.

If you ate sprouted wheat bread, it contains a big gluten hit and yes, it will defintely cause joint pain.  Hashi's thyroid disease also causes joint pain.  Get back on track with the gluten free diet and the pain should go away.  If not, get tested for thyroid disease, which is fairly common with Celiac/ gluten intolerance.

Guys, thanks so much for taking time out of your day to reply to me. I'm going to ask my doc for the test, she's super and I'm sure she will go for it. This whole thing has sure taken it's toll on me both mentally and physically the last couple of months... to be honest, I don't care if I have it or not, I just want to know what's going on
