    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

So I'm in the midst of a gluten challenge, and my muscles are kind of aching but my joints are popping a lot!

I noticed when I first went gluten-free that my joints (esp. shoulder) were poppy, but it seemed to lessen over time or I didn't notice it.

Now my shoulders and elbows are popping like crazy! It doesn't hurt, but I was wondering if it's gluten related maybe? I'm pretty sure the achiness is.

The achiness is kind of flu like in nature. You know how your shoulders and neck get achey and your legs get stiff before you get the flu? It's like that. Whenever it happened before, I braced for the flu to come but it never did.

Oh, and I keep running into things. Like, I keep hip checking the door jamb. It's like my trajectory is skewed.

Does this happen to anyone else?

I think the popping is gluten related-

my son popped so much for years that I thought he was going to fall apart,ha, the drs just blew it off as nothing, we knew there was more to it . He suffered lots of bone, muscle pain also

he was wasting away by the time the dr figured out it was celiac

As long as i can remember, my knees pop like crazy. all the time. i'll be sititng in the movie theater and have to try and stretch out my leg and bend my knee a few times till it pops. if i feel pressure building up in one of my knees but do not pop it, my knee will usually swell up a little and feel slightly sprained to the point where i can't put much pressure on it and walk with a limp. weird, i know. i don't tell people anymore cause they never know what the heck i'm talking about. related to gluten? who knows.
