Celiac disease and leg aches

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been diagnosed and following a strict gluten-free diet for 10 years now. The past 3 or so years I've been having constant leg aches in both of my legs in my thighs and calves. They are worse at night but still ache all day everyday. I've been to several doctors and all blood work has came back normal. They think it might be related to the celiac disease. Anyone else have similar issues? What did they do for you? Thanks

If they are going to blame your leg pain on celiac disease (which you should be healed after 10 years of a gluten free diet), it should be confirmed that your antibodies are very low.  When was the last time you had follow-up testing (a full celiac blood panel) to confirm dietary compliance?

I had testing done last year and they said my levels were perfect. The doctor I went to for my legs said that it is probably from CD because they can't find any reason for them to keep aching.

So, no mineral (e.g. iron) or vitamin deficiencies?  I am not a doctor, but maybe you should google restless leg syndrome.  

I hope you find relief!
