Hey guys, tell me if any of you have the same problem:

Last week we went to NYC, which means a lot of walking. My husband, who is a little overweight (I love him just the way he is - just making a health statement) and has never seen the inside of a gym is dragging me all over and not getting tired or sore. I, who have worked out most of my adult life and completed a half marathon just last year, could NOT keep going. After about an hour of the standing and/or walking, my body felt like it was going to crumble beneath me. The more I walked (or ran for a train), the more my muscles began to feel like they were made of quick-set concrete. Seriously!

There were a few time when he would start to run to catch a train, and I thought, well I guess I'll just stay here, because there is no way I could do that. He didn't seem to understand that I really couldn't hold up like that, and neither do I! My lungs and heart could handle it just fine, but my body was just crying out in utter pain. What the heck is going on? Anyone else feel like they have muscles made of Quickrete after a bit of standing or exercising?

Yes, many times. I was grocery shopping the other night and didn't think I'd make it out of the store. About halfway through, my muscles were so tired, I was holding on to the shelves for support, just to take a break. I only had about 5 things to get, but they were all over the store and I really didn't think I'd be able to make it. I know I'm low on some vitamins. I think it was magnesium. I added some of that and my muscles have been a bit better the last couple of day.s

Yup, was feeling that way after being gluttened many times in one month. I feel alot better now, but I can relate totally. It looks like you haven't been diagnosed for too long. Try taking supplements for vitamins and eating well. I am sure you are already doing these things. I did feel alot worse after getting gluten. Make sure you are getting enough rest and drinking enough water too.

Sorry you are feeling that way, I know I was miserable, but can say I do feel much better now and am able to at least clean my whole house and exercise again.

I feel for ya...that also happens to me. I have had fibro type pain for several years now...but on a different note, I get that kind-of pain/fatigue you are describing too. My mom and I used to go shopping for an entire day with little consequence. Now I really have a hard time pushing through half a day. It helps to bring snacks, take several breaks and wear comfortable shoes. I noticed my legs and feet were getting really sore after workouts too. If I would work out 2 days in a row I'd need a break, not like working out 5 days a week with no isues. I did upgrade my tennis shoes and that has helped some. I went to Vegas over thanksgiving, and we did a ton of walking too. Things that helped me make it thru and enjoy the trip--comfortable, supportive shoes, snacks, soaking my feet and legs, plenty of sleep. I like to take epsom salt baths and have a foot spa I soak in--they don't 'cure' it but do help bring relief. Oh, I also have a long heating pad that I'll lay under my legs when they're sore too. To me, these types of issues, like fatigued muscles, fibromyalgia etc, take a bit longer to heal than say D or C. I have been g for 10 months...so I am allowing myself another year or so before I expect my stamina to be up to par again. But, the past 2 months have been better for me...so that's a sign :) Hope you improve too and find some helpful treatments in the meantime!

I can relate, too. Yesterday my husband and I went out for the day--shopping, etc. I was wearing a leather jacket--not heavy, no thick lining--and my shoulders and neck were sore from that. It felt like I was wearing weights on my body! After a few hours, my legs were feeling weak--like they could give out (of course they didn't). It was such a nice day and we were having such a good time that I just ignored it. We stopped a couple of times- lunch (brought mine-ordered a drink) and later had tea at Starbucks. Except for feeling like I was in an 80 yr. old body, it was the best day I've had in a while. :)

I have that whenever I have been recently glutened. Normally I can do a two hour workout and just feel pleasantly relaxed and tired... but after a glutening, for a couple weeks, I feel weak and floppy like a rag doll and I get really sore and stiff afterwards. And trying to push through it just makes things worse. It's hard to explain to other people how my stamina and strength can go so wildly up and down. :blink::P

that'll happen to me if I'm fighting a virus (even with no nasal/head symptoms) or have an asthma exacerbation (even without coughing, and I never wheeze). I don't get it so much with gluten, but other things can cause it, so if it continues to be a problem, you might consider talking to your doc about it further.
