Lately I have had really bad bone pain, sometimes in my right wrist and forearm, in my ribs, but the worst is in my left leg. It started out as a dull ache in my knee that comes and goes. It was worst at night too. I totally freaked out when I saw that a bony knob on the side of my knee was sticking out more compared to the other knee. I do suffer from health anxiety but I got other people to look at it and they all agreed that it definitely was poking out a lot more. I started to get shin pain on that same leg and went to my GP. Around this time I had stomach pains and later found out that I tested positive for celiac disease (my ttg iga was above 250, normal is under 20). She said that bony bit was normal and was not much different to the other side. Went back to her again because I was in a lot more pain and she thought that it could be related to celiac disease since I am still eating gluten while I wait for my biopsy appointment. I didn’t think it was because she checked for vitamin deficiency’s and they were all normal. After a couple of weeks the pain got even worst and went to a different GP who agreed that my bony knob was sticking out and looked a bit swollen. She gave me vitamin d because it costs $60 to test for that deficiency so we thought that if I was deficient I would feel better after taking it. She gave me stronger pain relief and referred me for a X-ray and blood tests for other autoimmune diseases. All came back clear. The pain relief hasn’t worked, the pain has moved to my hip and thigh as well. I have another doctors appointment in a couple of days since I am worried about that knob that I think has gotten slightly bigger and I know that MRIs are better for looking at the soft tissue in legs than X rays. So I guess my question is, have any of yous had pain like this in these places? I think I’ve pretty much convinced myself I have cancer.
Hi everyone! I'm new to this site, so forgive me if there has already been topics about this... My grandma and older sister have recently been diagnosed with celiacs disease, so the idea is relatively new to our family, and my mom is starting to connect some of her symptoms to it so she thinks she may have it as well. I have yet to be tested, but I read that it is a hereditary disease, and there are symptoms of it that I have so I think I might have it as well... I wanted to check with people who know more about it, is bone pain a symptom? I read there are many different symptoms, so I wasn't sure. Towards the end of this school year (My jr. year, I'm 18) I would have sudden bone pain in my left femur when I was walking around the school hallways. Then it was my femur, the rest of my leg bones, and my hip, and then the right side leg, and now even my feet bones and ankles! It would flair up when walking to the point where I had to limp. Now I've been doing summer school PE ( make-up credits for not being in the public school system freshman year ) and it's gotten worse. Now my bones hurt even when I'm just sitting down and relaxing. And when I'm trying to run in PE, it'll come suddenly and I feel like I'll fall flat on my face because my legs/hips don't feel like they'll support me. Sometimes it's just specific spots in the leg/hip/ankles that will flare up suddenly and painfully, and the rest of the time they'll all just be dull, uncomfortable aches. Has this happened to anyone? I'm not totally gluten free yet, my family hasn't made the switch over all the way, we're still working on it. I have a doctors appt. scheduled in July... But I wanted to check with other people about this so I can bring up Celiacs disease as a possible reason. Sorry about the length! Thanks so much for your help! Tara
