Okay, So I've Been Gluten Free For About A Week Now...

I was wondering about a couple of things I'm going through. Keep in mind that I've been accidentally glutened a couple of times by either my boys or an ingredient I didn't recognize. :rolleyes:

First off, for about the last 4 days, I've had a painfully stiff neck every morning. I've tried Tylenol, heating pads, etc, but it only loosens up a little bit by the end of the day. I've never had this trouble before, and wasn't sure if it was in any way related to gluten withdrawl or something. I'm thinking about going to the chiropractor... :huh:

The second issue is (and I can't think of any pleasant way to say it) I sometimes feel a lot of pressure on my anus whether or not I have to have a BM. It's worse if I stand for too long. Again, this is something totally new for me, and I just wasn't sure if it was related.

I won't see my GI dr about the results of my celiac blood test until the first week of July, so any answers here would be helpful! :)

My stiff neck and neck pain is a celiac symptom for me and it's also the one that takes the longest to go away. If I get accidentally glutened most of my symptoms are easing off at the end of the first week but it can take 2-3 weeks for the neck pain and headache to go.

A chiro is always worth a try and massage too if you can afford it or your insurance covers it. If it is gluten they can't fix it though, just take the edge off while the inflammation calms down in your body. Good luck!

Hmm, if this indeed is celiac, my symptoms are usually all digestive. Maybe going gluten free is making me more sensitive to it. :huh: Thanks for the info :)

My symptoms were all digestive, too, but now I get terrible joint aches if I get CC'd. I'll have those even without the digestive stuff. I think the body is just better able to recognize the threat and throws out all the stops.

I too get bad neckpain and headaches which I wake up with. I am in the process of working out why I get this pain.
