I've been gf since mid to late January with only a couple of small accidental ingestions. I've been feeling better and better and better over the past few months - to the point that even my husband had something positive to say to someone about it a few weeks ago!
Well, last week unbeknownst to me, I ate tacos over the course of a few days and started feeling sooooooo bad (like I used to feel) that I finally looked them up and researched the mess out of the seasonings - yep gluten. Well, at least I know now.
My problem is exercise and I just want to see what everyone else's experience has been ..... My gluten reactions are not gut related - I have headaches, brain fog, severe fatigue, and severe inflammation in all of my joints plus plantar fascii. At first I didn't realize it because it was finals week and I just thought that was catching up with me. My plan had been to start exercising again as soon as finals were over - which was yesterday. But I'm so fatigued and my joints/plantar fascii hurt and I'm wondering ----
does it hurt to exercise through it or should I allow the inflammation to decrease before exercising? I'm not looking for medical advice, I'm looking for others' experiences with similar reactions.
