Has Anybody Experienced Foot Pain?

6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone.

I have been experiencing joint/muscle stiffness and foot pain resembeling a stress fracture (right on the top of my foot). It is very noticable when I stand from sitting and it will hurt at times while Im resting. I have been gluten free for approx 2 weeks.(I have made some wrong choices as I am just learning, so my diet hasn't been 100% gluten free).I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this same discomfort, and if it improved after going gluten free?

Thanks!!

I had random stabbing pains and muscle cramps in my feet shortly after going gluten-free. It would happen when i was just sitting there. I found that massaging my feet and rubbing them over a tennis ball seemed to help, at least with the cramps.

For me, I turned out to have gout - that was diagnosed 17 years ago, about the time I wish I would have been diagnosed with celiac disease.

My gout pain is not limited to the big toe, it can be anywhere in my foot, ankle, or knee.

The specific pain flares would last anywhere from 2-3 days to as long as 8-10 days.

Check with your doctor about your B-12 levels. Better yet, get a full Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, to check for deficiencies.

Okay, I have the answer! I have the answer!!! Yes, I also experienced actual stress fractures in both feet only weeks after being diagnosed with celiac. They were, in fact, stress fractures....and I attributed them to low calcium (my teeth were totally decalcified) and perhaps low Vitamin D. However, fast-forward to two years ago when I got glutened after being gluten free for six years. A month after being accidentally glutened, both of my feet ended up with stress fractures....and I was clueless about which nutrients I may be having malabsorption issues with. It took me eight months to figure out that what I was experiencing was Floppy Tendon Syndrome caused by malabsorption of manganese (not magnesium) and zinc. What you're describing sounds very similar to the way my own feet felt. I began taking chelated manganese and chelated zinc, and within a week my feet began to recover. The pain was completely gone after two weeks. If I were you, I'd take calcium, magnesium (calcium should always be taken with magnesium), Vitamin D, chelated manganese, and chelated zinc....and I believe you'll feel right as rain in just a few weeks. Believe me--muscle pain and foot pain tend to indicate largely low manganese and low zinc.

I had similar problems! I later found out that I was also lactose intolerant and wasn't absorbing calcium. I'm now taking Caltrait and Borage oil with a pre-natal vitamin.

    • That explains EVERYTHING. I had Aetna PPO about 4 years ago, and it was horrible. Absolutely horrible, and expensive. They jacked up the price the year Obamacare came out, from $550 a month (family) to $725 a month and I got stuck paying it for a year. I dropped them like a rock when open season came around. They are a greedy and worthless insurance company.
    • Hi Ahhhnold (is that like Shwartzenegger?! ), I am also waiting for my endoscopy. In the meantime, the people on this message board suggested that I request the celiac antibody panel to be drawn. Do you know if that was included in your blood work? If not, you can ask your primary care doctor to order it while you wait. That might shed light on just what's going on in your body. I had mine drawn yesterday and am waiting for the results, but they typically can be back within a few days. Why not give it a try?
    • I know what you mean. On one hand, I don't want celiac disease, but on the other hand, it would be a "fixable" problem that would explain so many of my health problems... all the way back to age 11, honestly! From my understanding, from the very nice and knowledgeable people here, only one test being flagged high counts as a positive or potential positive. Letting the GI specialist know this means that they will (should) take extra care when doing and endoscopy and taking samples for biopsy. Good luck! I hope you get your answers!
    • A protein in corn that can be utilized by itself as a thickening agent or extracted in some cases to be used as a protein additive in highly processed foods like some process meats, gravy, sauces, etc. More often found in pet foods. Not related to wheat gluten or something the typical celiac needs to worry about. Me on the other hand am highly allergic to corn, if you have the same thing avoid it, along with modified food starch, vegetable oils, vegetable proteins, (these mixes normally contain corn) and several other processed forms along with the obvious corn starch, corn syrup, corn, masa, corn flour, maize, etc.   Damnedest thing, they now often make biodegradable bags from corn starch/corn gluten, same with some new disposable ware....found out about the bags after breaking out in a rash from one I got at a health food store......
    • I'm 3 weeks away from my EGD and Celiac biopsy. I wish it was tomorrow. I started having stomach pain a few months back, had ultrasound, Bloodwork, H-Pylori test. Ultrasound normal, blood work normal, H-Pylori test negative, diagnosed with gastritis and given Nexium. It went away completely for about 3 weeks then came back with this constant belching, when I say constant I mean like sleeping 2 maybe 3 hours at night, the stomach pain would kinda come and go but the belching was non stop. Finally got referred to a GI specialist. While waiting on my appointment I decided to see if it could be an intolerance. First went dairy, no help. Then finally gluten. Within a week I was much better. Finally relief. I saw my doctor told him the diet was helping, he ordered an EGD and Celiac biopsy. But since I saw him a week ago I feel like I'm getting worse again. So yesterday I ate gluten free waffles and had a horrible day, so much gas and belching all day. I couldn't understand, so I looked at the box and found it's got soy. I read that people who have Celiac have trouble with soy as well. So today I've been, gluten, dairy, and soy free which mean I can't eat crap. But I've felt much better today than yesterday. In the mean time I'm curious, when they go in with the scope and do the intestinal scrape for the biopsy, how long do you have to wait for results? I'm so ready to do these tests and get some answers.
