Pain In Elbow Joint Area

Recommended Posts

So, does anyone here get pain like in their elbows? Or like in that area? I'm wondering if it might be because I have reduction in muscle (a.k.a. padding), but I'm not sure why. Anyone else?

I'm not sure if this is the right forum so please feel free to move it if it isn't.

Maybe? I'm probably not the best to say. Are you asking about the pain as a celiac/gluten symptom or as a non-related pain?

This might not be what you are feeling, but I had elbow pain in the form of cubital tunnel syndrome, typified by tingling in the pinky. It was treated as if it was Carpal Tunnel. I took the arms off of my office chair. I was told to expect repeated surgery eventually. I was treated for a few months, but the pain resolved 90% or better when I started the GFD. I discussed this with Dr. Fine years ago and he mentioned autoimmune inflammation of the tendons. It would flare up from time to time on the GFD and I wondered if it was an indicator of being "glutened", but in the end I think it associates more with a big carbohydrate load in the lower GI.

I had very tender joints and sesitive skin. Four weeks on diet and all of that is gone now. If I even banged my arm or leg it would hurt really bad.

Okay, I'm just going to throw out some guesses here for you to investigate. Tendon pain anywhere in your body can be caused by a misbehaving thyroid (so you might wish to get your thyroid tested), or it could mean that you're deficient in zinc, manganese, and/or silicon, since these all support tendon health. I recently suffered from these deficiencies, and the bones in my feet suffered from numerous stress fractures because the tendons had gotten too floppy to support them. Please note that it can be harmful to take too much zinc or manganese, so you might wish to get your levels tested first. I can recommend Bio-Sil for the silicon--great product!
