People With Joint/muscle Pain!

Hello, I'm sure many of you are getting used to seeing my name associated with joint/muscle pain, stiffness and soreness :P . Hopefully that will soon be a memory.

QUESTION: Has anyone had joint pains and my other symptoms as well as a slightly abnormal Rheumatoid Factor and THEN became okay? As in symptoms are gone and never came back? PLEASE let me know.

Here's my story:

Apparently I have a gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease (this is suddenly in question, but that's another story) for over 4 years. I haven't been eating correctly out of ignorance and/or necessity. Fast forward, for the past almost two months I have had mild to severe joint/muscle pain, stiffness and soreness. I have been gluten and lectin free througout that time. Lately I have actually been experiencing normal hours, and almost full days without a high level of symptoms .

In Dec I got back that my Rheumatoid Factor was less than 20 (normal).

Now, having taken the test again in early January, I got back that it was 21.7, which is a weak positive.

God Bless.

Benzodiazapines can cause joint pain. It's not widely recognized to be a source of joint pain, but it is. For me the symptoms lasted months after only 14 pills.

My legs especially ached alot in the few months before finding out I had celiac. Then went away for months. THen I started getting gluttened alot in a two month period by accident and it came back. Now that I haven't had gluten. THey feel fine again. If I get gluten, then the pain in my legs comes back. It must be some kind of inflammory response for me I guess. I did go to the doctor, but started feeling better shortly after, so I didn't have anymore testing done. I think for me it is gluten and I am fine otherwise.

Do you mean Rheumatoid Factor or Sed Rate? I thought that the RF was either positive or negative, but the sed rate has a scale.
