does anyone out there have bone & joint pains because of celiac? i have this sometimes & wonder what anyone else does to relieve this type of pain. thanks

I take medicine called Skelaxin. I have also taken Parafon Forte in the past but it didn't work as well. Heat works wonders...I have both a heating pad and a massager seat cover that both massages and can be heated.

Stretching also seems to help a lot as long as I don't overdo.

I take a ratio of Omega 6's and 3's (as prescribed in "The Hidden Story of Cancer"), and my joint and bone pain completely went away. To achieve the correct ratio, simply take 1/2 teaspoon of organic flaxseed oil and 3/4 teaspoon of safflower oil in either a small glass of juice or a smoothie (mix it in after mixing the smoothie so that you don't gunk up your blender). Believe me--this really does work!

However, I must admit to taking Dr. Christopher's Joint Formula and also Dr. Christopher's Tissue and Bone Formula--both are very inexpensive and can be purchased on the Web (I'm talking approximately $8.00 each). They were recommended to me by someone else with celiac, and she was spot on--my joints feel great now, even though I have celiac and have suffered two rounds of Rheumatic Fever.

Lastly, if the above two remedies don't work, you can always take Curcumin, a natural product that relieves inflammatory pain in the joints. It's made of Turmeric, and studies have shown that it really is effective.

If you haven't had your vitamin D level and calcium level checked recently, it may be something to request at your next doctor's appointment.


Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

I suffered from bone and joint pain terribly before I knew I had Celiac. Supplementing Calcium and D and being gluten free have eliminated it. Maybe the other vitamins help too. I take a lot of C.
