Gluten intolerance and peripheral neuropathy
I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Small Fibre Neuropathy 6 months ago and have not found any relief from any of the regular medications. Not content to accept the 'idiopathic' diagnosis I have been trialling diet changes and have finally had success removing gluten. I was diagnosed with Non Celiac Gluten Intoletance years ago and whilst I am generally gluten free I have not be 100% strict for quite some time until October of last year and instantly felt my pain reduce and could almost feel the affected area retreat down my legs leaving me with just occasional burning in the tops of my feet. So all good for a couple of months until I stupidly relaxed my diet over Christmas and over a week had two small pieces of Christmas cake and a handful of chips coated in beer batter. Since then my pain has returned with a vengeance and has failed to reduce over a week since eating gluten. Has anyone else experienced going off a known irritant and then having a major reaction from just a small amount when reintroduced?
