Hip Pain At 23..help

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 think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc  
    • Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice from y'all about iron IV infusions. First, some background: I was diagnosed with celiac disease at the beginning of June this year (2017).  I had labs done in March and my serum ferritin was 5 ng/mL. Hgb was 11.1, which isn't all that low, but is still flagged as below the normal range. I took 325 mg ferrous gluconate supplements daily for two months, and when my ferritin was rechecked, it was down to 4. The doctor ordered a celiac antibody panel and all of the levels were high. Confirmed with endoscopy at the end of May. A month later, I left for a 2-month study abroad program in France (aka the land of bread and pastries). After returning to the US at the beginning of August, I finally went gluten-free.  At the beginning of September, I returned to my University. Almost immediately, I realized I was really tired and was having a hard time making it through the day without a nap. I finally had a follow-up GI appointment around September 20th with the PA of the doctor who performed my endoscopy (not the same doctor from March). During the appointment, I asked her what we would do if my labs showed an iron-defiency. She told me that we would either do oral supplements or IV infusions, depending on whether or not she thought I'd absorb the supplements. When the lab results came in on the online patient portal, she made no comment on any of the iron-related results, just sent me a message that my antibody levels were still quite high, that I needed to keep up a strict gluten-free diet, and that we would recheck everything in six months. My ferritin was down to 3, Hgb was 10.3, iron saturation 6%, etc.  I was concerned about those results, so I called the PA's nurse and left a voicemail asking what the plan was for getting those levels up and got a portal message back from the PA saying that my hemoglobin was slightly low and will get better over time as I cut out all the gluten in my diet, but that I can start taking supplements if I want to speed up the process. I know that the Hgb still isn't that low, but it seems like the ferritin level is more serious. I went back for an appointment with the doctor who first found the iron-deficiency back in the spring and she seemed a lot more concerned. When I brought up IV iron therapy, she seemed to think it was a good idea. However, she's a primary care physician through my school's clinic, so she can't give me infusions. She called the PA with the intention of finding out whether or not she would change her mind about infusions, and had no luck. Interestingly, the PA's nurse informed her that they don't expect me to be able to absorb the supplements right away, and would consider IV infusions after I've been gluten-free for another six months.  I've done a bit of research on the IV infusions and it seems like I fit the criteria. Based on my antibody levels, I'm clearly not able to absorb iron any better than back in the spring, when the oral supplements did nothing for me. I understand that once my intestines heal more, I'll start being able to absorb iron better and should be able to boost my levels with oral supplements. However, I feel like I need a solution that will help me much sooner. I have a very demanding course load this semester and I'm constantly exhausted. I fall asleep doing homework at least twice a week. My grades are suffering, my mental health is suffering, and my relationships are being tested. I still don't have an explanation for why the PA doesn't think IV infusions are appropriate and I don't understand it. I really don't know what to do next because I'm afraid if I try to talk to the PA again, she'll get annoyed. I know that was super long, so for anyone still reading, thank you for bearing with me!! Now for the questions: 1. Do you think iron IV infusions in the near future would be a reasonable treatment for me? 2. Do you have any advice on how to make them happen? And if you have any other advice that's relevant to my situation, I'd love to hear it!   Thanks so much, Sofie
    • I can tell you that last week, I picked up and delivered 30 boxes of Costco pizza to a hungry marching band.  I lived!  Seriously, just wash your hands after handling.  Ennis is right.  Do not take a big sniff of the boxes in case there is any residual flour.  It took days for my van to air out and I did lay some old beach towels to protect my interior as normally, gluten is not allowed!  
    • I just found a nicer compilation of her work, much easier to understand. She also makes the connection between Sleep apnea, vit. D and the gut. Maybe you will enjoy it too:  https://www.vitamindwiki.com/Handout+on+Vitamin+D+(Hormone+D)+and+sleep+-+Gominak+2012 She mentions autoimmune diseases in general but not Celiacs. But I think it all connects and makes sense.  You are right, no matter how a post is, someone might read it. I did. 
    • i looooove nuts.com.  i've already ordered all my nuts, etc, for holiday baking from them.  if you order (i think it's 65 bucks) enough, you get free shipping.  the nuts are so pretty, not all busted up and stuff.  they send you a little sample with your order (this time it was goji berries) also, i got pepitas and sweet rice flour.  they have added alot of new products.  i highly recommend them
