Joint pain

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi-

I am having terrible joint pain almost daily. I’ve had all the necessary testing done and I’m still  without a diagnosis as to what is causing this. My suspicion is gluten! Is there a food sensitivity test that anyone can recommend...? I’m 50 years old and have no other issues.

 

thank you!

As far as testing goes I would look at the link below. It will give you everything you need to know, in fact print the page and bring it with to the doctor:

This is article is discusses joint pain as given by Dr. Joseph Murray, a world-renowned celiac disease expert at the Mayo Clinic.

Joint pain can be attributed to celiac disease.  Not all celiacs have GI issues.  Some can be thin or some can be overweight.  Some have anemia, ataxia, neuropathies, the list is endless because celiac disease is systemic.  

Get tested.  Be sure you are consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood test as all celiac disease testing requires you to be on gluten or the tests will be invalid.  

I think you should listen to your gut....gluten may be the culprit.
