Stomach Pain
0

9 posts in this topic

I have no official diagnosis but I am gluten-free, DF, EF and peanut free. Have been feeling better until Monday when my long term side pain reared its ugly head. Today I layed on the floor after breakfast and took a stomach muscle relaxer to prevent me from passing out. My digestive tract feels like I have lesions in it. I don't have these pains often anymore, but not sure what is triggering it lately. I am severely constipated and take Miralax several days in a row then there is no need to take it for a week or two later. I have several questions:

1. What do you eat when your stomach hates food? I need to prepare chicken noodle soup and freeze it.

2. Could it be the miralax, although it has been a week since I took a dose?

3. I have also been eating soy icecream with strawberries and bananas in it before bedtime, oops.

4. Could I have been glutened?

Feeling really sad and sickly-like

My pain is on the left side and I believe it is colon related. I have had this pain since I was 13. I had my gallbladder checked out 2 years ago before I knew that I had something like a diagnosis and it is operating at the minimum of normal, I think 30%?? I wonder if it ever functions at a higher % after a change of diet? I have ate some sausage and brats lately...hum....

I agree with Shadow.  It sounds like your gallbaldder.  My pain always was much lower and nowhere near my GB.  Pains started on and off at age 16.  Serious enough for me to most always pass out.  Had it removed when I was 45 while on a business trip to Las Vegas.  First time I had a HIDA scan (ultrasounds showed no stones and a healthy GB).  HIDA results showed a non-functioning gallbaldder (0%).   It was also infected.   I believe my GB would work on and off all those years and I was lucky finally to catch it when it wasn't working!

I know the pain your talking about and can be intestinal. Have you tried cutting out soy? Something must still be in your diet that you can't tolerate...

Constipation can cause stomach/intestine/colon pain...especially the type you're talking about. My son gets c, and had an X-ray for it. I asked the doctor if c could cause what he's been feeling and he said most definitely. He described some pretty ugly cases.

You need to find out why you are so constipated!

I agree you should have your gallbladder checked - don't want to miss that if its the problem.

You mentioned that your last HIDA scan reported a 30% function rate.  It might now be below 20% which is the cut-off for surgery.  Other than lower abdominal pain and passing out, I did not have the typical gallbladder symptoms.  

 

Non-functioning gallbladders run in our family.  Dad's one of 7 and 6 have had theirs removed.  I'm one of 27 first cousins, the fifth oldest and the fifth to have my gallbladder removed.  No stones for anyone.  Just works on and off until it starts to rot/"get hot"/infected.  I would have died if the infection would have spread.

 

Since you already have a gallbladder that was only functioning at 30%, I'd ask for a re-check.

I will have my gallbladder rechecked when I go see my PCP. I am feeling better and have been doing alot of thinking. I alter my milks due to my theory of having a leaky gut. I over-did it with almond milk and have not reintroduced that back after 2 years. I don't do rice milk because I can't find anything other than Rice Dreams. I was altering coconut, soy and flax. Since I was on soy milk, last week and also ate soy ice cream the night before my pain, I am wondering if it is soy. I just love my mayo. Wah!! I feel like I am running out of options these days and don't know how to fix it.

Definitely have your doc check for anything serious.  I know I get stomach pain from gluten contamination so you might want to check for that.  Some of us are more sensitive to that than others.  It would help you to keep a food/symptom journal to look for connections with cc or other food intolerances.  I hope that you feel better soon.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
