Sore Legs And Buttocks...

7 posts in this topic

I am investigating the possibility that I may have Celiac disease. I have many similar symptoms and have been very ill for four months. (fatigue, numbness/tingling, blood blisters in my mouth). I have seen every type of specialist there is and have had many MRI's, CT's, blood testing and some Autoimmune testing as well - without a diagnosis.

I have had extremely sore legs and buttocks (muscle soreness) amongst other symptoms that match this disease. I am curious as to what type of soreness in legs and buttocks others have experienced to see if it is similar? My muscle strength is fine in short bursts, but my legs and buttocks feel very sore - the feel like I have just finished a long marathon and are very achy. Is this what others have experienced as well?

Thanks for reading! :)

I would get muscle/joint aches as well. My son would have terrible leg cramps.

I had the wierdest ache in my hands/wrists that went away shortly after going gluten-free. My legs also felt tired and heavy.

My butt and my legs are ALWAYS sore! I feel like I'm always riding horses even though i've never ridden a horse in my life! :lol:

But i also experience two different types of soreness/pain in my legs.

Do you have numbness/tingling in your legs?

The pain I feel from my leg numbness/tingling is a lot different from regular, running, sore, but it's a pain that is somewhat similar.

Also, my back gets sore. :huh:

I am not a diagnosed Celiac, but I share the symptoms you listed.

I wish you good luck in the longer diagnosis process ahead!

Riding horses is a great analogy. ;-) My legs are very sore but not numb or tingling. I had major burning sensations in my arms and my face feels numb and tingly for the most part all my symptoms are very "neurological" - thankfully I have been cleared of any neurological issues after massive investigations. I was also getting waves of extreme weakness, best described as a low blood sugar feeling (but of course my blood tests were fine). All very bizarre to me as up until 4 months ago I was as healthy as a horse (sticking with the theme). What are you dealing with and have you come up with any conclusions?

Have you check out Myasthenia Gravis and Lyme's disease?

Haha, Horses are good for a lot of things. :D

I've never heard of Myasthenia Gravis before, so I just checked it out.

It doesn't sound like anything I am feeling/experiencing, except the drooping eye.

But my therapist believes i am suffering from peripheral neuropathy; like you, my face feels numb and tingly, and i have burning sensations in hands and feet, which has a huge connection with Celiac Disease. I am still waiting for my insurance to send me my referrals to see a neurologist and a gastroenterologist to begin my testing, though.

I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia when I was younger, so I already watch my blood sugar level.

I started another thread a week ago on this forum about the connections between Celiac and "Complex Migraine Syndrome", where i said some of the more bothersome symptoms i am suffering from.

But I am wondering---what caused you to narrow your focus into celiac disease? And have you tried going on a gluten-free diet?

I am sure the insurance delays must be frustrating. It is scary being ill and not knowing what the cause is - I am with you on that one!

I am in Canada, but our medicare system is so over burdened that there are long waits here. I did a combination of public and private (pay) care to advance my testing. What ever it takes I suppose. :angry:

I just read your other thread and saw that you are only 16! You seem very mature for your age - I suppose all this illness makes you grow up fast. I hope you get some answers soon and good on you for seeking help through forums like this. I think they are great.

Reason for thinking Celiac...

I have seen two Neurologists, two internal medicine specialists and a Rheumatologist. Since they have not been able to find a diagnosis I have been doing a lot of research myself. The other week I had three blood blisters on the inside of my cheek and after investigating on the net, came across Celiac disease. I never thought it possible that it could cause such neurological symptoms and it is my only lead at this point. I will be seeing my GP on Monday to ask for some blood tests. But I understand they are not always very accurate - but worth a try. I plan on starting a gluten free diet soon to see if it brings relief.

I have found some relief in Chinese medicine/acupuncture and am also trying a new homeopathic approach where they determine remedies based on live blood analysis. I will let you know if that pans out/helps.

Take care!

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
