Aching Hands And Feet

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free since the beginning of this year. I had some great improvements almost immediately. I'm back to having some symptoms. The itching in the lady area, some itchy spots here and there on my body, sometimes waking up again with the tingly legs, and now I wake up with stiff swollen fingers and my feet ache. I did go to the doctor, I now have a sinus infection. He asked me if ostiarthritis runs in my family. My little sister, whom is a celiac and my Mom have the arthritis. I'm starting to feel doomed here. I had stopped taking my Mobic when it became generic, I couldn't handle the side effects. I have some name brand that I have been taking, but the doctor says it takes a week to get in your system to work. 5 more days. He also gave me Ultram for pain. I so hate taking medicine. I have had so many bad reactions.

Have you tried eliminating other foods like soy, dairy and eggs? I had horrible arthritis and it went away when I eliminated all these and nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant). Sometimes, gluten-free isn't enough.

I agree with Liz, try eliminating other foods and see how you do. It seems that for many there's a connection between nightshades and joint pain.

The itching sounds like candida. Be sure you're taking a good probiotic and avoid sugar and alcohol. That will help if it's candida. You should also feel better if you get rid of it. If it's bad enough, it can cause joint pain, too.

If neither of those help, then I'd start researching what else could be wrong. You can start here just by posting something like "what to look for next" and you'll be given many ideas.
