Any One Get Muscle Cramps?

Recommended Posts

I had a positive biopsy but all my blood tests were normal. My GI said to try the diet FOR 3 MONTHS and if I didn't get better than it was IBS (he says its one of the two but can't be sure which one). He didn't even ask me to come in for a follow up. I went to my family doctor for a second opinion who gave me a food allergy test. It was normal so should told me to go off the diet. As soon as I went off the diet I started getting leg cramps at night again, but other than that didn't feel any worse (I don't get sick after eating gluten). I went back on it after a few weeks of lots of gluten. I've been gluten-free for about a month now. I have had no leg cramps but still have the gas/bloating. I don't get diarrhea just constipaton. Does this sound like celiac or are the cramps just a coincidence. I had the leg cramps when I was young but never had any GI symptoms. They stopped for years and just recently came back shortly after my GI problems started. My doctor never told me what could have caused the biopsy to be positive if it wasn't celiac.

JessieFree,

Before I went gluten free I did get cramps on and off for years. Now that I have been gluten-free for nearly two years, the cramps are a thing of the past. I can't actually say they are gluten related, but then again, I don't gag when cleaning my teeth now, I'm not so achy, not so hungry, not so tired. Who knows what you can relate to gluten, but looking back quite a few things I never thought would be related to gluten have cleared up since being gluten free.

Also, I thought it was only gluten that did damage to the intestines, but could be wrong. My blood tests came back positive, but my biopsy was clear, but that was after a year of being gluten-free.

I had sporadic but terrible leg cramps fairly regularly, and all that disappeared when I went gluten free AND I'm also supplementing magnesium regularly, which I didn't do before. I think both things helped.
