Joint Pain And Total Knee Surgery Part Of Celiac Disease?

Recommended Posts

I have not been diagnosed yet but wondered. I have had joint pain for a long time. and 2 years ago have had to have total knee replacement surgery for both knees. I am 45 now and when I was 38 was told from a doctor that I had the knees of a 70 y/o. Was going to have the surgery then but found out 4 days before surgery I was pregnant.

Has anyone else had Joint pain then had to have surgery on joints at a young age?

I also have had D since I was 12 and have just been Diagnosed with IBS and have had lactose intolerance since I was 12.

Still wondering if what I have is Celiac, or do I just have IBS and arthitis and it is all a coincidence.

Thank you

Sherry Lynn

In my case the arthritis and IBS along with a lot of other stuff was connected. My arthritis has been in total remission now since a few months after diagnosis. After you are done with testing do give the diet a good strict try for a few months even if the results are negative. My IBS symptoms resolved fairly quickly but the arthritis took a bit longer to resolve.

Agreed with Ravenwood :) Get tested first, and then immediately go gluten-free anyway for a few weeks to see if it clears up symptoms even if tests come back negative.

I get very sore knees (they feel "unoiled"/creaky) when I get accidently glutened. I've also noticed my back pain coming back the last week or so when I was glutened, so wondering if that's related as well...


Feb 2010 - Start of continuous GIT problems and panic attacks

July 2010 - Blood and biopsy -ve, went gluten free after testing which completely relieved symptoms

July 2011 - 1 year gluten free, food intolerances (Chicken, eggs, olives, goat milk) gone!

2012 - Soy no longer a problem

Thank you both for answering my question. I am very anxous about seeing the doctor, I hope he can help me. I am soooo tired of having a sore and painful tummy.

I am also having alot of pain in my arms and legs. stabbing type pain and an achy pain that I have had for years and years. I will let you know what he says.
