After being Dxed with Celiac, it's like bloody murder to do sit ups. My stomach feels like it's going to burst, it is so tender. I dread my two days of PT at school and most of the time I just do two sets of fifty push ups instead of doing sit ups because I'm lucky if I can get twenty in most of the time within a minute. Does anyone have any advice to get rid of this pain?

I experienced a similar situation on occasion after going gluten-free. I traced it to dehydration. Drinking the recommended amount of water per day eliminates the problem. When it does happen, I can always look back over the previous 24 hours and see that my liguid intake was low. At that point, drinking a glass or two of warm water (heated in the microwave rather than from the tap) eliminates the problem, albeit after 1-2 hours.

This is just a shot in the dark but it might be worth a try.

It all depends on how long you have been gluten free. When your small intestines are inflamed, you, or I have gotten those stabbings pains. I attribute that to intestinal inflamation.It will subside your get adjusted to the diet. and gluten is removed. Hope that may also help.
