Before diagnosis of NCGS I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia which I think I had had for several years. I ached all over and identified with the symptoms of other sufferers on this site. Once I went GF this disappeared - within a month. In addition to having fibromyalgia over the years I had been diagnosed with bursitis in both hips and tendonitis in my left shoulder and rotator cuff in my right shoulder and also because of pain sent for xrays on my knees, feet and hips for arthritis. All clear of arthritis. In the past I have played a lot of tennis, windsurfed, water skied, ran 10 miles 4 x week and swam 1 mile 7 times a week. I didn't do this all in one week! For the last few years the only exercise I have been able to do is swimming,5 - 6 times a week (front crawl - I can't swim breast stroke as this makes my knees hurt), pilates, a bit of urban walking and cycle regularly. Over the last few years I have had a lot of episodes of tendonitis in my shoulders and received physio for this. I understand that tendonitis does wax and wane. However, I have now developed a painful elbow which I think could be tendonitis or something similar. I do rely on a computer for work and aware of the associated occupational problems. I seem to have a weakness in these areas of my body and wonder if this is related to NCGS or coeliac? I have read that there is an association with joints and muscles with coeliac and looked at previous posts on this site. I am seeing the doctor on Thursday so it would be good to know if anyone has any advice or information on this one. This tendonitis and bursitis seems to chase around my body which is such a nuisance. I always do warm up and cooling down exercises for swimming and take regular computer breaks.
