Hip Pain At 23..help
0

7 posts in this topic

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.

    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!
