Ok so i have to admit, since getting sick about 4 months ago, i have not had any really truly physical exertion. besides for biking to and from work everyday that was about it. Yesterday i was in a part of town i had not been in since i was a little lad. so i desided to grab my skateboard and head down there to see if my old skate friend s still live there. indeed they did so we persisted to skate from 9am to around 4 or 5pm. in a blazing 90 degree sun. im burned to a crisp right now, after boarding all day we desided to go swimming on campus, so we hoped into a car and headed to the swimcenter. went swimming for about 2 hours. now i felt slightly sore last night, and i ended up crashing before everyone else (acually they where throwing a party and i could not stay awake and went tobed before it even started) well now this morning im in crap loads of pain. it hurts to brethe, it hurts to move my legs it hurts ot move my arms i am sore all over. Is this caused by my phyiscal exertion? will it go away once my body gets used to working so hard? im gonna go back to laying down it hurts to sit up right

Sounds to me like you just plain overdid it yesterday! If you're not used to that kind of physical cativity, doing hours of skateboarding and then swimming all in one day is going to make you pretty sore. It's always worse after about 24 hours. If you can take a couple Tylenol or other mild pain medication (I use Extra Strength Bufferin for muscle pain), that would take the edge off. Get some rest :)

Yep, you overdid it! The sun takes a lot out of you, too. Use some sunscreen next time if you're going to be out between 11-3!!

sounds like a combination of physical exertion (the soreness is always worse 12-24 hours after, not immediately after, the activity), and possibly sun sickness. if you're really burnt all over, you're body has to deal with that too, and that will make you feel pretty crappy all on it's own. take cool baths, as you can.

Actually, corn is the filler/binder for most pills. Second would probably be tapioca.

Tylenol is definitely gluten-free, but I'm not sure about the rapid release. Advil and aleve are also gluten-free.

The last I checked, the Rapid Release was not gluten-free. Possibly it was too new then--that could have changed, but you'd have to check with them to make sure. Bufferin is gluten-free *except* for the 325mg. tablets. If you can tolerate aspirin, the Bufferin Extra Strength is great for a nasty headache.

I just checked - all I could find is that the rapid release gels are gluten-free in canada, not useful for those of us stateside, though <_<

All the recent Tylenol lists say that Rapid Release Gels haven't been tested yet, but they don't *expect* to find gluten in them, FWIW. Those lists are from late June.

Advil is gluten-free. Not sure if it would be better than Tylenol in your case, but I use it all the time.

with the sunburn and muscle soreness, I would encourage an anti-infammatory as well - so advil or aleve. (ibuprofen or naproxen sodium)

I get awful headaches. I'd be lost without excedrin migraine. Excedrin tension headache for those who can't have aspirin.

I suffered the exact same thing. During my era of Celiac harm (which was around...five months?) I became inactive from pain. Once I actually had energy to do my normal things (rollerblade, swim, run, Colorguard) I became very, very, very sore and tired for a bit. I'm dealing better with it and I think you'll do the same.

Do you know if Excedrin Tension Headache pills are gluten free for sure? I used to use them and they worked well for me. The dose of caffeine helps keep my headaches from turning into migraines. But the makers of Excedrin won't reply to any of my requests for information. :angry: So I stopped asking and I stopped using it. Now I have to have a soda when I feel my headache turning bad and I don't like soda. I can't drink coffee because it irritates my intestines and I just feel trapped! So if you know for sure they are gluten-free, then I can consider using them again. I don't do aspirin.

BTW, they are not on any gluten-free med list I have found either, but almost all (or maybe all) other Excedrin products are gluten-free as far as I can tell...

    • Avoid gluten removed beers, or gluten reduced ones as they are not safe for celiacs. There are some ciders that are decent like Austins Honey Cider they make hard and sweet ones, I started using them in recipes that call for a beer for marinades etc recently. https://austineastciders.com/ There is another member here who can give you a long list of 100% Gluten Free Beers I Say play it safe with Rums and mixers, pure agave taquilia, some non grain vodkas. Avoid flavored liquors.  My personal favorites are admiral nelsons rum, I cook with it often, and used to drink it a lot before my ulcer issues and UC started having flare ups and bleeding with alcohol. Nothing used to beat a root beer, and rum or orange soda and a whipped vodka or rum at the end of the day. The admiral nelsons is very smooth.   Miss drinking, perhaps I might be able to have a shot or so in a few more years.
    • My numbers are right at the lower border of in range. I don't know if that's significant. Hemoglobin 12.7.  When I had surgery a year ago it was 10.3 afterwards.  I have heard of testing ferritin. Does low ferritin but normal CBC indicate anemia? I'm also wondering how quickly a CBC rebounds versus low ferritin if you have compromised iron absorption. 
    • Hello everyone I just received a call from my doctor's office that the Celiac lab work they drew returned 3 positive results.  I asked her to check me for Celiac as it was a suspicion of mine. I don't see the GI until next week. Can someone tell me what these lab numbers mean. I have tried to figure it out, but I'm not getting it. Can these numbers signal 'weak' chance or is it you have it or you don't? I am 37 years old. I have vitiligo (since 12 years old), chronic autoimmune related hives, thyroid removed from Graves disease at 20 years old, chronic anemia (last ferritin was 2). I've had meningitis and shingles. I had my gallbladder removed 1.5 years ago and the chronic pain in my URQ has never left. CT scan last August shows only cysts on ovaries, which I also have recurrent problems with. Stomach pains now for months and months, cramping, burning. Joint pain, headaches, anxiety, etc. Any advice please!? I am not so concerned about having to cut gluten as I am hoping that this may finally make me feel human again.
    • Only you can make a decision on whether to do a challenge or not.  My hubby went Gluten Free 12 years before I was officially diagnosed.  He refuses to do a challenge, because we need to pay our bills and we know that gluten makes him sick.  Why would anyone remain gluten free for more than 16 years if they did not need to?   He does tell me that I have received way more support from medical, family and friends.  It also has helped other members in my family (easy to ask for a celiac screening for my kid).   Good luck!  Do what is best for you.  
    • A CBC would check for size of blood cells, number of blood cells and hemoglobin levels, etc.  If you are within range, you probably would not be considered anemic.  A ferritin test (iron stores) can be checked too.  If very low, it starts to create symptoms.   https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anemia
