Wrist Pain A Sign?

8 posts in this topic

I'm not a diagnosed celiac, but my mother has it and I definitely feel better on the diet. I've been on it 2 times (this is 2nd) and I'm sticking to it this time. But I got this wrist pain about 7 weeks ago when I was eating gluten and it hasn't got better. Its like on the outside of the wrist and is a shooting pain, it isn't a pain which causes agony but it is still there majority of the time. Could this be caused by celiac or gluten intolerance? Has anyone had this and if so how long did it take to disappear?

As with all things, it's possible, although I would not automatically assume it was in the absence of any other symptoms. To put your mind at rest, you need to get tested, especially as your mum already has coeliac disease. Don't forget, some Coeliacs don't actually have any symptoms.

In order to get tested though, you need to be eating gluten and wheat for at least 6 weeks for it to show up.

I would not associate lone wrist pain to Celiac. If you had pain in multiple joints, that could link up.  

 

How long did you try the diet the first time?  Did you have relief of symptoms then?  What is your intention starting the diet again?  And do you have active symptoms/issues that are leading you to think the diet will help you?  

 

These questions will help determine your future course of action and the fortitude to follow thru.

 

Good luck in your quest for health.

I had wrist pain for years, diagnosed as repetitive strain injury.  It knocked on to my arm, shoulder and neck.

 

I helped a lot by stopping work which involved typing, but since I have beenn gluten-free (Sept 12) I have had a massive improvement. I have also had improvement in migraine and plantar faciitis, so I think I am attributing the improvement to a general reduction in inflamation.

 

When I get glutened (soyed, dairied) it all comes right back.

 

I'd agree with flowerqueen that if you want to get blood tested it can be easier to do it while on gluten, especially as you know it may be there in your genetics. The gene test doesen't require eating gluten, but only tells you if you are in a likely category for developing the disease. Then those of us who are Non Celiac Gluten Intolerant, who don't show up on any tests (yet!!)

 

Hope you get the wrist sorted, not much fun.

My blood rtest came back negative, so I didn't do anymore testing and I was first on the diet for about 2 months and noticed my digestive issues were improving, this is my 2nd week back on the diet now and I intend to just stick at it for good.

I'm hoping you find that your commitment to the diet will resolve many symptoms for you and like a lot of us, resolve things we didn't even realize were wrong.  

 

Congratulations, and we are here to help you along.

Brilliant!

I am NCGI (apparently!!) and I am in for life too - feels good doesn't it?

I have had all sorts of symptoms resolve since September, and even more since January, when I started a 'clean' paleoish diet

    • Celiac disease is associated with numerous chronic conditions, such as anemia and malabsorption of some critical vitamins. Changes in the gastrointestinal tract, rates of gastric emptying, and gastric pH are responsible for impaired vitamin and mineral absorption. Intestinal CYP3A4 levels may also be disrupted, which may have implications in first-pass metabolism for some drugs that are substrates for this drug metabolizing enzyme. View the full article
    • Thank you for posting this I've never been to South America, it's the only continent, bar the poles, I've yet to visit. It's really nice to read that my gluten sensitivity hasn't ruled it out. Maybe I'll get to the land of Luis Suarez yet!
    • I know this post is a year ago... however it is still on the first page of the travel section!  I am from Uruguay, (South America) and I can answer this question for people that may look at it in the future. As a South American -  I can say that the cuisine varies greatly.  In cities, you shouldn't have any more than the normal amount of difficulty finding food.  For example, in Montevideo, the city I am from, you'll have no problem finding dedicated entire Celiac stores.  Meat is a large part of restaurant menus, so parilladas (similar in theory to steakhouses, would be very easy to navigate).  Uruguayans do eat a lot of pastries, and just like in the states... Most mainstream bakeries are not gluten free, but like I mentioned there are places that specialize.  In Uruguay, there is knowledge of Celiac and a large health awareness.  Some of the foods can be costly, cost of living in general is not low. In large swaths of South America, the foods you mentioned - Potatoes, rice, meat, etc are abundant, as are fresh fruits and veggies.  Avoiding corn does make it tricky.  Peru can be a great place for non-gluten eaters. Peru uses very little gluten (they are the original quinoa eaters) but there is a lot of corn in the diet (and since you are corn sensitive, that would be a food you would need to navigate). Latin America spread over two continents! In this area you will find a great variety in cultures, cuisines, and knowledge of celiac.  There is no reason why If you want to experience Latin America, that you have to rule out an entire region of the world because of Celiac.  Navigating it will be different, but it is doable!
    • Recently diagnosed last week does the pain ever get better??
    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!
