Hello Whole30 fam. This is my first whole30. During week 2, on day 10 specifically, I started to experience pain in my left knee. Two days later the pain was in both knees (by day 12). The pain has not subsided, although better on some days, and I am currently on day 22. to better explain the pain, it is in the knee joint and just above the knee. It hurts to the touch and when I lay down, but walking and mobility and standing are all more comfortable positions. I have never had knee problems and have maintained an active lifestyle, working as an electrician and taking 3-4 metabolic conditioning (metcon) at my gym per week. This pain has caused me to take some time off from the gym to try to heal a bit (sad). The only other joint pain I experienced was in both my hands, which lasted at most 3 days, which occurred at about day 15. I do not take any medications, or have any medical conditions. However, to try to help with this I have started taking MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane, Jarrow brand) and Bromelain (Solaray brand). I continue to take tumeric and magnesium, which I've maintained for the past year or so. I am alternating ice and heat as well. Can anyone offer any idea of why this is happening, and especially taking so long to recover? Anyone experience anything similar? Open to any and all ideas and feedback. Thank you! - JohnKnee C :(
HaleyV posted a topic in Whole30 with medical conditionsHi friends, I just recently started the Whole 30 Diet about a week ago and it has been good, however I have been experiencing some pain and cramping in my lower abdomen and in my lower back, as well as being fatigued often. I got diagnosed with endo and IC about 2 years ago and have had two surgeries. I was wondering if any of you with endo and/or IC have experienced some pain/fatigue/cramping once you started the Whole 30 diet? My pain isn't to the point where it is crippling, but it is definitely hard to keep up and I am debating whether or not I should modify the Whole 30 diet or stop it all together? I am contacting my doctor on Monday to consult with him, but would love any feedback/advice/testimonials from the Whole 30 community! Thanks Haley
