Heartburn, Headaches, And Muscle Aches...how Long To Resolve?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If you have/had symptoms of heartburn, headaches, and/or muscle aches, I'm curious how long it took for those to improve after going gluten-free. I know it's different for everyone and it can take a while for some. I'm just curious about personal/individual experience. These seem to be the most lingering of symptoms for me. Aside from my 7 gluten challenge at the beginning of April I have been gluten-free since Nov (~5mo).

My muscle aches went away withinn days. Headaches improved but still get them about weekly vs daily, and I still have acid reflux. I'm gluten free for about a month now. I think it all takes time. Hang in there.

For me, it took several months. Just taking gluten out of my diet wasn't the answer. I started taking extra potassium and magnesium to help my muscles. I was put in Nexium for 5 months and even now a year later I am very careful because of the burning I had from my stomach and always take an antacid before I have anything spicy or acidic. Headaches will pass in time with a clean diet, don't be afriad to use a pain reliever. If you find that you are not getting better and things keep arising, or keep making you sick, try a grain-free diet. After a year gluten-free, I finally had to go grain-free and it made a huge difference for me.
