I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease exactly two weeks ago and have taken gluten completely out of my diet.  Well 6 days later I started to get a heat sensation in my lower back when I lay down flat on my back.  I wouldn´t say it hurts but it is like a burning sensation inside my lower back.  It´s not hot to the touch.  I can feel it a little bit when I am standing up but it is more intense when I am laying flat on my back.  Has anyone else experienced something like this related to Celiac Disease?  Thanks.

Diagnosed in March.  I broke a vertebrae just laying down four weeks ago (or maybe it was trying to get off the floor....we'll never know!  After the initial pain, I have a burning sensation and numbness.   Most pain occurred when I was trying to move in bed.   I'm scheduled for a bone density test in two weeks.  Meanwhile my back is healing.  Taking calcium and Vit. D per my doc.   Osteoporosis is common for those with celiac disease and who have not been diagnosed for a while.  Some experience pain and some do not with a fracture. 

 

I wish you the best.

I am now thinking that the lower back pain comes after I drink pop.  I have drank cola and orange pops and it seems to bother me the same.  Has anyone heard about lower back pain (heat sensation) being connected with carbonation or caffeine?

I have had the heat sensation you are describing.  It was quite uncomfortable and rather disturbing to me.  It was early in my diagnosis.  It also went away.  When this happens, DO NOT stand around in the shower with really hot water running down your back and be sure to pat it dry but do not rub across it with your towel. Don't massage it, don't scratch it.  Do not lotion it.  Continue eating gluten free and while the carbonation is not causing it, drinking more water will help you much more in that it is not acidic and THAT will be more helpful to your nerves that are creating this sensation.

 

Also, I know a physician with celiac disease.  She had patches of skin that produced this strange heat/burning sensation too.

 

It will most likely get better.  It might get a little worse first.  Be patient.  Don't stress it.

Thanks for the encouragement!  Sometimes I feel like I am better and then all of a sudden I feel like I fall back a step or two.  I have now gone almost six weeks without gluten and milk, beans, and eggs (my other allergies), nevertheless I am sure that something gets in every now and then.  It has been quite a struggle to keep it all out.  However, my back is feeling better today (no pop).  Thanks again.
