Foot Pain

6 posts in this topic

I have been recently dignosed with Celiac. I am having a terrible time eliminating gluten from my diet and my willpower is almost nothing. However I do have a question about foot pain.

For about a week I have had terrible foot pain. The padded cushiony part right below my toes. (Sorry that probably sounds stupid).

My question is, could this be Celiac related? If yes, any ideas for comfort?

Thanks -

I don't know if it is for sure celiac related, but when I stopped eating gluten and started taking D, B-complex and fish oil, my D was very low so I had an Rx for that to start with, I have felt so much better. I had terrible foot pain for several months. I could barely stand or walk. Have you had your vitamin levels checked to see if you are low in any? The best thing to do about the food is give all the gluteny stuff away, don't keep it in your house. Try to not get stuck on the things you can't have. There are replacements for almost everything. There is also a lot of things that are naturally gluten free. For the foot pain, I liked cold on my feet or massage them with a menthol cream.

Since Celiac causes inflammation it could be related but it also could be something entirely unrelated. If the pain is bad you may want to see a podiatrist (foot doctor) who may be able to tell you what the pain is from and possibly do something to alleviate it.

You also need to get strict with the diet, you are not doing yourself any favors by not following it. There is a lot of naturally gluten free food and it is good to start out with whole unprocessed foods in the beginning. You may also be going through a bit of withdrawl and that will not resolve if you are on and off with the diet. Just about anything you can find with gluten can be found without. If you need suggestions for replacements for your favorite gluten stuff just ask. There are many good items out there. Also if you live somewhere that has a Wegmans they label all their name brand foods that are safe for us.

I have foot pain there also! I am also type I diabetic and also am on thyroid replacment. So there may be several causes. I have had some neuropathy symptoms before diagnosed. I have severe discomfort in my heels. Wondering about heel spurs.

I did have a lot of foot pain that when away on the gluten free diet. I used every sort of insert possible but nothing worked. I went from being able to walk for miles to barely being able to walk around the block. I'm sure glad that went away. After diagnosis I was able to run a 5K. I hope yours goes away too.

    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.

    • In the face of budget cuts, and in a move that may offer a glimpse of things to come, doctors with the the UK's National Health Service are eliminating gluten-free food prescriptions for adults, beginning in parts of Devon. As of July 1, the Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) responsible for planning and buying the majority of healthcare services for local people have recommended limiting gluten free foods including bread, pasta, flour and multipurpose mixes, to under 18 years of age.

    • We rarely drink orange juice.  Why?  Because it is full of fructose which is not bad, but you would probably never sit down and eat more than 2 oranges in one sitting.  Makes you wonder why diabetes is so prevalent.  The other reason is laziness.  I have citrus trees and juicing them takes time and work.  I reserve that for special occasions.   Citrus is acidic.  It can be harsh on a damaged gut.   My non-celiac kid actually gets hives from eating too many oranges.  Moderation can be a good thing.   Consider getting your vitamin C by eating fruit and not juice.   
    • Hi duliano, Was he tested for celiac disease?  If he is positive for celiac disease, you'll need to spend some time learning about it.  Celiac disease tends to run in families, so you and your spouse should also be tested if it is celiac. There is another condition called NCGS which some people have.  Those people also get sick from eating wheat, rye, and barley, but they don't have the gut damage that celiac's get. Recovery from celiac disease damage can take 18 months or more.  It is not a fast process for most of us.  The antibodies that cause the damage slowly reduce in number over time.  Possibly weeks to months.  Even a small crumb of wheat, rye or barley can cause the antibodies to flare up again.  Then the damage starts again and it's back to recovery. It sounds like you are giving him a good diet.  Meat, veggies, nuts, and eggs are good for the first 6 months.  After that people find they can sometimes add dairy milk back into their diet.  You need to avoid cross contamination from shared foods like mayo or peanut butter or even a  shared toaster.   Think of gluten like a tiny germ that you can't see but it can be there.  It's really helpful to not have any gluten in the house, if that is possible.  Also you have to watch out for other people giving him treats that have gluten.
