Hi everyone!

Well, when I was eating gluten, I was having HORRIBLE KNEE PAINS ALL DAY LONG. Well, now that I am gluten free, the pain has subsided, A LOT, but not completely. When I sit down for too long (which is what I do at work everyday), they hurt. Not as bad as before, and they don't hurt when I walk anymore, but it's this annoying lingering pain when I'm at work......

I take calcium/magnesium/zinc pills, but may I ask what else is out there specifically for the joints? What are some things that you take that is gluten/casein free? I feel so good these days, it's just these dumb knee pains that are stubborn to go away completely.

Thanks!

The women in my family have a history of knee aches. Walking is the best for me, but like you when I'm glutened they are super achey! Usually some ibuprofen works. My mother swears by that glucosinate/chro-something something. But that's also hard on the tummy. Do you do ROM's during the day?

Hi Annette,

What is ROM's? I don't know if I was glutened though, that's the thing. My stomach is only bothering me right now because of my "monthly friend" but before that, it was perfect.....plus, I'm only eating safe foods from home, or fruits in a peel from the store. That's why I'm thinking it has to be the citrus fruits. I wasn't eating oranges for a while because I know that acid is not good for my bladder problems, but now that I noticed it doesn't affect my bladder, I'm eating oranges every day, and the knee pains have come back, a lot. SO, that's all. I'm going to stop eating oranges tomorrow. What other fruits are citrus again? Grapes? I hope not, but hey, whatever it takes!

Try Glucosamine Sulfate and Chondroitin Sulfate. You can find them all over. You can get them mixed or just Glucosamine by itself. It helps my mom. I have also found, when I had horrible joint pain/arthritis, that Cod Liver Oil and Flax oil are helpful. Get lemon or mint flavored cod liver oil and it's not bad at all.

What I primarily take is a trip to my ortho's office, followed by a trip to the physical therapist. :-P If they're still hurting, I'd urge you to have them evaluated carefully, *including* by a physical therapist. (A PT was the one who caught my *slight* pronation, which the ortho didn't expect to aggrivate my knee problems, but he was willing to try orthotics, and they do indeed help.)

Generally, I use Aleve or Advil, at prescription strengths myself. In the past I've used glucosamine and chondritin, but didn't find it to be terribly effective over the course of the six weeks I took it. Omega-3 supplements did appear to make a bit of a positive difference as well. For the most part, just getting out and walking, or doing yoga, even when they hurt, can be very important. Getting the circulation going a bit more can help flush through the chemicals that are causing inflammation.

Hi Annette,

Sorry, ROM - Range of Motion. You would periodically straighten out your knee, almost hyper extending it while sitting in a chair, and then pull back as far as you can to keep the joints lose.

Okay, interesting. This is really good information. Yeah, I guess I do ROM even though I never knew what it was. It does help to walk......it doesn't bother me practically at all when I walk.........I just bought some glucosamine yesterday but not I noticed that there is soy in it so I have to go back to the store today......But I hope this works. It was getting a lot better and for some reason, it just came back........

My knees make a awful 'crunching' noise when I go upstairs, and I find climbing stairs quite tiring, my legs feel weak above the knee. I originally thought it was because of weight gain and moving to an office without stairs, but then I was dx with fibro. My kness were the least of my problems at that point!

They are much better now that I use a 'cross trainer' ski type machine daily and the treadmill. My consultant (pain/fibro) said it was hydrogen bubbles in the joints but am not convinced as my sister had similar and now has osteo arthritis in hers. :unsure: I tried fish oil, glucosamine etc but didn't find it helped.

Does this sound similar to any of you here?? what do you do/take for it?? and WHAT on earth is that noise!

On a more positive note: Today is day 2 of my detox/ellimination diet and I had enough energy today to have a big clear out of my desk area/christmas decorations etc. I slept better last night too, and my sinus seems better today also. :)

I use Carlson too - only fish oil, no gluten or dairy. I can't imagine any of them having any gluten - the only ingredients are the oil and mint or lemon flavoring.
