For about a year now (pre-dx) i have been having this pain, more like a pressure right above my hip bone on my lower right side. Sometimes it feels like its a burning sensation. More of an annoying thing then pain, but still worries me.
Just curious if this happens to other people.... :huh:

Sounds similar to mine. It was like I was being sliced with a red hot butter knife. Turned out it was fibroids and one had attached itself to my pelvic floor. 4 1/2 yrs after my hyster. I still get the pain occasionally.

I have experience such a WIDE variety of pains with celiac disease. If you want to know I can give you an extensive list. You should have it checked out, but first I would suggest making sure that you're not accidentally ingesting gluten because that sucker finds its way in nearly all (processed) foods. I am learning more and more about the disease and its shocking to see how many ways I was being "glutened" without realizing it. And that can be the cause of your pain, even if you've been gluten free for a while.

ALTHOUGH, again, I would suggest getting it looked at if it persists.


Good luck.


Much love,


Florence

I also have a pain in this area although mine is more a 'cramp' type pain since i was 16. It goes away unless I get gluted. My sister also has the same pain and we both have been dx as 'IBS & fibromyalgia'.
I hadn't had it for ages and just could not resist apple and almond tart in France 2 weeks ago, such a mistake!

I have that exact pain! Right above my right hip bone, not even really a pain but more of an annoying feeling that comes and goes. I do notice that it gets MUCH worse when I have been glutened, and doesn't bother me if I've been really careful.

I used to have a similar pain on the right side but right under my ribs, which the dr. said could be gas getting trapped there and causing problems. There's a sharp turn in the intestines in that area. It looks like there is also a sharp turn in that lower right area (where the small and large intestines meet), so maybe it's a gas pain? That would explain why it's usually more of a pressure or wierd sensation than an actual pain.

that would make sense, ive been having this pain for a little over a year. I just got Dx this week.....Im being very careful with my food, its not too hard cause my mom was Dx 2 years ago....But i have noticed a huge difference in the pain...i will notice the next time if i get it what i ate before that....
Do you get it on just your right side, or both?

For about a year now, almost always just the right side. However I've noticed lately that sometimes I get the same kind of pain on the left...not nearly as often, but occationally.

My pain has always come from the right side, however, I hurt right below the ribs on that side. It pulsates when it is really bad and feels like a "hot knife". It will also radiate over to my side/back. If I stay on my diet, it is much better, however it is still sore as I am in the healing stage.

Just started a week ago, i was just diagnosed this week! ;) Figured i had it before they told me cause my mom has it, and everything was adding up to it, so it wasnt a big surprise, just have to get used tot he adjustment. It helps that i have my mom who knows a lot, and that my bf family owns a chain of supermarkets. Im trying to get him to run a gluten-free block in the sale flyer :P

I used to have that below-the-ribs pain, too. For awhile I thought it was something with my ribs even, the pain was around the very lowest rib. It went away about the time that I started having the pain by my hip...or maybe it just moved. The rib pain quit shortly after I went gluten-free and the lower pain is much worse if I get glutened.

im starting to guess that mine is all gluten related too. i just was dx this week, and have been doing my best to be gluten-free. i have to say the pain has subsided considerably. so hopefully its related to my celiac disease and it will just go away....cause i had my ob/gyn check me out and everything in that area was ok, she said that a lot of digestive problems cause pain down around your ovary area b/c they are so close.

That's good to know...it makes me nervous too. I'm really hoping that as I get better and if I can stop accidentally getting glutened it will go away completely!

heres another thing too, not sure if the same happens with you. Do you tend to feel better, like the pain would subside more if you went to bathroom? (not peeing i mean) lol

Yeah, sometimes it will get better if I go. Always if I have the pain *Plus* I have to go, if that makes sense.

Also, it tends to be worse in the early morning or late evening.
