Hip Pain At 23..help

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My hips hurt terribly...I got glutened about 3 days ago and it has gotten significantly worse.

I'm way too young to be feeling like this. Hours after a hike it's AWFUL. Aching nagging pain.

Does anyone have this problem? Is there something else I can be doing to help besides making sure to not gluten myself?

I don't know if this will be overly relevant but I'm also dairy free. However, I feel like I'm getting enough calcium through almond/soy milks.

Nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant) are known to cause joint pain in some people. I was having a problem with arthritic-type pain in my fingers and back, and when I stopped eating nightshades it went away. They are cumulative, which means if you give them up for a while to clear your system of them and then eat them just once in a while, you should be OK. Of course, after a glutening, just about anything can cause problems. Maybe go off nightshades until you are over the glutening (give it a couple of weeks), and then try eating them again?

I know this may sound terribly insensitive, but I can't think of anyone I know who would go on a hike 3 days after they were glutened. It's like signing up for extra punishment. What a body needs after that is time to heal, and while you may not have been feeling particularly awful you did something that was very physically demanding when your body was trying cope with the assault that had just happened. It probably wasn't a hike, but this is something a lot of us have done and we all learned our lesson. Take it easy, let your body heal and make sure there has been ample recovery time before doing anything ambitious. Anything underlying will be amplified beyond comprehension after a glutening.

 

There are probably dozens of possible causes for the pain. I get pain in some of my joints from osteoarthritis. Honestly, nothing helps with this. A significant amount of my pain was caused by my histamine problem, and I've been able to manage it through diet. Much like the nightshade thing, it's a sort of cumulative thing and I just have to make sure that my cup not runneth over. Since you're also newly diagnosed and gluten free, it could simply be that you haven't had enough time to start feeling better and with time your hips will be less painful or not painful at all. A trip to the doctor (if s/he isn't a moron) wouldn't hurt just to make sure it isn't anything serious, but from there maybe just see if time helps if you aren't all gung-ho about trying out restricting your diet further.

All good advice!  Maybe you should get a bone scan.  Folks with celiac disease, even if they are kids, can have osteopenia or osteoporosis.  Your doctor may want you to add in more calicium in the form of supplements until you are properly absorbing vitamins and minerals, etc.

Have you had your thyroid antibodies checked?  Joint pain can be a symptom of Hashimoto's for some, and it often co-occurs with celiac.  (Also, for some people with thyroid issues, soy can aggravate things).

I'm 24 and have had problems with my hips for a couple of years now. It's like a deep ache/burning sensation that radiates down my leg - my doctor recently diagnosed me with hip bursitis, yours sounds similar!

I'm one that feels better after a glutening if I exercise. It's like it burns it out or something.

Anyway, sometimes gkuten can cause muscle cramps and hip flexors can cramp up. After I was gluten-free a while, and started working out, my hip pain went away. I think because I was moving and stretching.

You may also have soft tissue issues thanks to autoimmunity - so you may be prone to overdoing. In which case, rest and caution.

    • Isabel, You did not give out any personal information that could be traced to you.  Good job!  Just do not mention your last name or where you live.  There is a million Isabel’s out there and one is in my troop (she play water polo and the trumpet).  There an advantage to being anonymous.  Like when you are talking about barfing or the big “D”.  Some subjects you would only tell your parents or doctor because it is too embarassing.   I am just careful because I work with kids and we talk about internet safety.   Glad you like my ideas.  Other member have good tips too.  I can tell you that when I open up our salads  and our steamy thermos’ of chili at the high school football games, the surrounding people are envious!  I bake our own cookies, cupcakes and brownies and freeze them.  That way we always have something just as good at parties.  I make gluten-free goodies to share and everyone loves them.   
    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
    • Posterboy, thank you for your response!    Regarding magnesium, do you think relying on food sources like fruits, bananas in particular, is not enough? Just out of curiosity, when you started taking Magnesiums Citrate supplements, did you already consume enough fruits?
