Feel Like I Have Arthritis

Recommended Posts

Ever since accidentally eating gluten this past weekend I have been dealing with swollen joints in my knees, hands, and ankles, and I feel stiff. It hurts but I can manage. I'm just wondering how long before this settles down. I feel like an 80 year old...not good!

I thought it was improving a day or so ago, but today it is worse. :(

This is one thing I've started to experience and I never had it before going gluten free.

bone and joint pain where one of my mysterious ailments til discovering celiac. i am 6.5 weeks into gluten free and i'm still waiting for the pain to go away. i hear it takes several months. but hopefully you will feel better soon from the accidental glutening. drink lots of water and/or maybe try steeping fresh ginger root into a tea (if you can eat ginger). its a natural anti-inflammatory. my doctor told me to take advil to help with the inflammation but i don't really like to take meds if i don't have to. good luck! :)

Joint pain is something I had pre diagnosis. It went away within about 4 months gluten free. It came back with a vengeance yesterday when I got a serious glutening. I am so much better today already. I've been healing over two years. Recovery seems much faster now. You might want to revisit your diet, or maybe you just need more time.
