      I actually always had really bad GI symptoms around the time my period would start. I just chalked this up to 'hormone changes' but now I know the gas & constipation (ugh) were due to celiac and somehow just got worse around that time.

      Celiac And Pain Meds
      This is my first post so hopefully I've read enough before posting!
      I was recently diagnosed with celiac after a multi-year saga. I have a lot of neurological and joint pain which they think will be solved by the gluten-free diet, and are hoping I don't also have fibro!
      I've been gluten-free for a week and have started feeling better, however, this morning, late morning, I started feeling really ucky again -- gas pains in my stomach, foggy head, etc. This is about the time that my pain meds (I take oxycontin because I absolutely cannot tolerate anything else -- I wish I had other options!) would be hitting my small intestine. The only other thing I'd had to eat was coffee with half and half and certified gluten-free/non-contaminated yogurt.
      How terrible if the pain meds I depend on are going to exacerbate the problem. I looked at but they only had information on oxycodone (which is 'quick release' instead of 'extended release,' and tends to get me more "high", not exactly something I can take at work), and my GI and pharmacy seem not to know of any brands that are certified gluten-free for oxycontin either. 
      Help? If I get a brand name, I can have it dispensed as 'medically necessary' and the pharmacy will order it, but I can't find any reliable resources and I wouldn't know even which manufacturers to call... 
      Thank you!
