Continued Stomach Discomfort
0

7 posts in this topic

I've been feeling bad for about a week now - first burning stomach pain and now nausea. I saw my GI dr. yesterday and he doesn't feel this is celiac disease related. Told me to take Prilosec (which I started this morning) but I'm still feeling bad, plus a side effect of Prilosec is headache. I don't know what set this in motion. I've been gluten-free for 7 months and never had these symptoms. Any advice?

Hi bklyn:

I don't see prilosec on the gluten-free medication list. You might want to check any medications you are taking to be sure they are gluten free.

Yeah I don't see it on my gluten-free list either so you definately need to make sure it is gluten free. That could be causing problems.

I've checked Prilosec before and it is gluten-free. A lot of the meds that are gluten-free are not on the list here for some reason. I take Aciphex, though, and it helped much more than Prilosec.

bklyn,

I have those symptoms, too. After I eat I get very nauseated and it's terrible in the mornings. I can barely get out of my house sometimes.

The burning pain is bad, too. When I get that all I can do is sit and shake or rock back and forth. I've never been able to figure out what causes it. I certainly had more pain before going gluten-free, but never this nausea. So I'm still at a loss for what to do about it.

I don't get pain but I get nausea whenever I ingest gluten. Maybe you want to check all of your products to make sure they are all gluten-free. Like your shampoos, cosmetics, and lotions. The longer you are on the gluten-free diet the more likely you are to have symptoms when you have gluten. At first when I was diagnosed I was fine and didn't react to when I had gluten. Now, the smallest amount makes me sick for 2 weeks. You may want to drink ginger,tummy mint, or chamomile teas to calm the stomach. Peppermint is good for that too. Good luck and hope you feel better soon :D

Yes-- Prilosec OTC is gluten-free. I took it for weeks when my doctor suspected that I might be having trouble with acids or something.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
