Pelvic Pain Girls?
0

6 posts in this topic

Ever since I started having problems with celiac a year ago, and since I was diagnosed 2 months ago I've had pelvic pain. Certain areas hurt to push on and I get a pain that radiates to my lower back and all down my legs. I'm only 17 and I was wondering if it could be related to my celiac or if anyone has had anything similar.

I have the same thing.  It's part of what led me to the celiac diagnosis.  Our intestines and female parts and bladder are all jammed packed in there.  Feels like period cramps a lot sometimes but it's just the raw and inflamed guts.

I have all sorts of weird pains, most of the time nothing bad though. I did notice, however, that the worst of them, a constant pain on my left that seemed to go along my colon or possible fallopian tube, has gone away gluten free. That pain specifically would get aggravated with breathing...rather, when I breathed in the pain would go away, but come back with the outtake of breath. Clearly my diaphragm was pushing on something or the contraction of my diaphragm itself caused some sort of neural pain (I have neuropathy from my celiac disease). Luckily, it was one of the first things to get better for me. Still took at least a month to go away though.

 

That said, I subdivide my menstrual cramps into 2 types. The first one is more dull, and comes and goes in waves, and doesn't usually get bad. The second type is sharp and feels like it will get excrutiating, and I seem to feel it in the muscles surrounding my anus (not the colon, butt muscles) and well as really, really low down on my pelvis, and of course the usual area closer to my ovaries. This sounds like endometriosis to me, but it's infrequent (1-2 times a year max) and it's definitely period related, and is well-treated with an ibuprofen and won't come back 4 hours after the ibuprofen. Never had it looked at medically.

 

I have experienced some spotting since being gluten free, and my period seems to be moving back to a 28 day cycle from a 40~ish day cycle I had for many years.

Yeah I had an ultrasound and it came back normal I guess, and my doctor said it has nothing to do with my celiac, and prescribed me pain killers for cramps. I just don't think it's cramps, because its not the same kind of pain I usually get while on my period. I've only been gluten free for 2 months though so maybe I just need to give it more time. I just haven't really improved at all.

I have the same pain as cavernio described on my left side.  It coincides with any type of inflammation in my gut, especially C and it also flared up with a UTI.  If you suffer from C, consider probiotics, enzymes, whatever will get things moving and grooving.   I am also going for an ultrasound within the month, but I doubt they'll find anything.  It's fine when nothing else down there is aggravated.

Yes, I have had pelvic pain for years. I've been to the gyno dozens of times about it, have had ultrasounds and tests, and everything in there is normal. It only recently occurred to me that it could be due to gut inflammation.

 

I've also had really strong pain (like a muscle being pulled and pinched) in what I thought was my uterus/ovaries when I cough or sneeze for years as well, but again, it only recently occurred to me that it might be something else.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
