  1. Thanks for the response spirt_walk. I can't imagine how you feel after 2 years of being undiagnosed. I am going to have tests done once I can get some decent insurance. Please let me know if you find out anything...i'll be praying for you to get some answers.
  2. Thank you for the response. I have read about Lyme but have not been tested. I don't ever remember having having a tick bite....but maybe I could have missed it. When I have tests ran I will be sure to mention that . Thanks again
  3. I have been having joint pain for about 7 weeks and have been gluten-free for 6, Dairy Free and Nightshade free for 2. My Joint pain came out of nowhere one morning. I woke up with an achy/burning feeling in my fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders and feet. Within a week it was also in my hips and knees. After going gluten free the pain seems to have gotton better. It rotates around but tends to stay in my hips, fingers, wrists and feet. The first week of the pain (before going gluten free) I could barely move. Now it seems to be more of an annoyance than a disabling pain. Sometimes it burns, sometimes it itches, sometimes it feels like knives going through my joints. I have no swelling, fever, redness or any other symptom. Just the pain. I don't have insurance so am hoping the gluten-free solves the problem. Has anyone else had this happen for this amount of time? How long did it take being gluten-free for you joint symptoms to improve and then go away. Did you have good days and bad days or did it just stop quickly once eliminating gluten? I know there are many posts out there similiar but if anyone can offer any advice It would be greatly appreciatied.
