Nerve pain in feet

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello I’m new here, I’ve had chronic foot pain for 5 years, with no improvement no matter what was done or prescribed to me, after some heavy google work, I read that it was possible to get neuropathy, nerve pain in feet if gluten intolerant. I was skeptical at first, but after quitting gluten, one week in my pain halved. For the first time in 5 years in improved. Now since that first week in it has relapsed a few times, with the pain coming back and also dealing with gluten withdrawals. I’m 3 and half weeks in, with the hope that my nerve pain continues to slowly improve. Just wondering if anyone else on here has something similar? I’m just wondering if the relapsed pain might be more to do with the withdrawal pain. Thanks for the help, it’s appreciated

You should probably consider going back on gluten and getting tested for celiac disease before moving on. You have to be eating it for 8-12 weeks prior, some do not have noticeable digestive issues but have the disease manifest in other ways.

I get gluten ataxia with exposure leading to lack of pain/feeling/temperature sensitivity. And it can wane in waves for over a week after a accidental exposure and seems to be more sensitive then my gut to it.

You may be low on B vitamins.  Celiac can cause malabsorption of nutrients like vitamins and minerals.  So nerve damage can occur in that case.  Your doctor can test your vitamin levels.

I’ve had several blood tests with my GP and neurologist and neither of them mentioned anything about celiac or gluten intolerance, though I’m not sure they tested for it. This is my only option that makes the pain ease, so I’m going to push ahead with it and hope it clears up. The diet doesn’t bother me, I like to eat healthy anyway. But I think it is manifestin, as 2 weeks in I was slightly glutened and my toe tingled for a few days. It’s been a tough 5 years, hopefully this is the way through it. If it’s not this I’m lost
