Hi folks,

This morning, I woke up to 2 episodes of stabbing pain in my lower tummy (below my bellybutton). It hurt like heck and made me break out in sweat. It only lasted a few minutes both times with a subsequent run for the bathroom.

I've been gluten-free for over 1 1/2 years, and I remember getting this kind of pain (along with diarrhea) fairly often before gluten-free, but not since. I'm not diagnosed Celiac, and haven't been tested for any of that.

I don't know if it was gluten or not, but there's a chance I was glutened yesterday, so I'm wondering, for those of you who have encountered intestinal pain when glutened:
Where is your pain located? Is it in your lower GI ?

Thanks,
k

Yes, I get this too. It happened more often prior to going gluten free, in the wee hours of the morning a pain in my stomach, it seemed to come over in waves, and of course that visit to the bathroom. I don't call it a stabbing pain, more a bad ache, quite similar to period pain, but worse.

Now that I am gluten free, I only infrequently get this. I'm never sure if it is gluten related as I've been glutened in the past without the pain in the stomach being a symptom. I blame mine more on eating too much, and my stomach just can't cope with it. I might be wrong, but that seemed to be the case in the last few months of eating gluten. I've had the problem for so long, I felt it was normal for me and lived with it.

Yes :) I think it just may have been overlooked. Our apologies.


When I get glutened, my pain is also around my belly button. That's the small intestine, and that's where the rxn is taking place, so that make sense to me. I feel like my intestines are on fire, I can literally feel it burning. So, if you suspect you may have been glutened, that's probably what you're feeling. If you didn't get glutened, I'm not so sure what else it could be.

Hope that helps!!

Thanks Lizard00

Hi Cathy,
Yeah, I really never know how or even if I'll have symptoms. Sometimes it's neuro, sometimes gastro. It's frustrating. I'm pretty sure it was gluten. I took risks Sunday. This is certainly an easier reaction to handle than depression.

Lower belly - check!

thanks,
k

I get severe stomach pains, then bloating, gas and my lower gut feels like it is on fire! Horrible feeling.

Gluten Free going on 5 years and counting!

gluten-free is a life change and not a diet.
