Feels Like Someone's Stabbing My Stomach...

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.
