Hello, I have been gluten free, except for a few mistakes, (vitamins) for about a month, feel a little better each day. The brain fog is gone for the most part! Still cramping occasionally, mostly at night, still eliminating things from my diet, that seem hard to digest, dairy, some nuts. But no matter how good I seem to feel, when I get dressed, with jeans or slacks, and sit down to put shoes on, my stomach starts to hurt! Is this normal? After removing the pants, and relaxing a bit, the pain subsides? Thank you for any insight on this!

On days I am staying home, I just wear loose fitting sweat pants, and don't seem to have a problem? Could this be do to the damaged villi? Will it eventually go away?

I myself do not have Celiac and I have the same problem. I get to wear nice loose clothing (Scrubs) at my daytime job and then if I have to work at the community pharmacy later, I must change into slacks and dressier top. I am usually in so much pain by the end of the night due to bloating and the tighter waist (I even look pregnant). If I'm at home in comfy jeans I never have this issue. I know I have gas + bloating issues LOL but I've been tested for Celiac and I don't have it (just my son). I guess I'm not much help, but I'm right there with you.

Yes that used to happen to me. It went away after I was healed and now I only have that problem when I get into gluten.

Thank you both for replying! So many strange symptoms, I hate to blame everything on Celiac! I am a fairly new Celiac, and this board has been invaluable to me! Though I just started posting, I have been reading it for a while! Thank you to everyone who answers questions, and posts information for us newbies!

Why do you say that, IBS, which I think I have also? Is the tight clothing syndrome more prevalent with IBS, than Celiac?

Yes, IBS can very much cause bloating and discomfort. My sister suffers from IBS as well. She complained of bloating and discomfort and how her pant were always too tight by the end of the day around her waist. When we both went to get tested she was diagnosed with IBS, mine was celiac disease.

Just because your tests were negative that doesn't mean that gluten may not be an issue for you. Since your son is gluten-free I would suggest that you give the diet a good strict try. You may be surprised.

I have the same problem. I also have IBS with Celiac, so I would say it's IBS off the top of my head...the funny thing is the normal reaction would be to get larger pants, but really they fit fine, until bloating kicks in..ugh then its a nightmare! B)

The strangest things...huh.

Best of luck!

Hi Salax,

Thank you for replying! Yes, these symptoms are strange! You're right, the pants fit fine, it's when I sit down! I am wearing extra large sweat pants, for now, but will the bloating, ever go completely away?

Honestly, I don't know. I have had it for 9 years the IBS and the unknown celiac and when I wake up I am fine. Tummy is flat; soon as I eat I bloat, just a tiny bit. But if I eat something like dairy or soda...WOW! I am looking a little prego..ya know?

I try to buy stretch jeans and make sure any buttoned pants or shorts are a little lose for bloating, but not baggy. It's pretty sad I have to shop that way but it helps. Most of the time I want to live in cotton elastic skirts, but those would be hell in the winter! LOL.

Thank you so much for sharing your insight! Yeah, I know the prego thing, all too well! I do buy all jeans, and slack that have a stretch to them, but it doesn't seem good enough! I noticed the jeans that don't sit right at the waist, a bit lower seem more comfortable!

I thought it was a short term thing, but I guess I'll have to start buying larger clothing! I always liked jammies too, but now nightgowns are more comfortable!

As long as I am not in pain, and no brain fog, I can cope! Thanks again!

I sometimes get some pain from seeing young women in tight fitting clothes myself. Ok, just kidding! :D

I had gas and bloating a lot before going gluten-free and afterwards for several months. It hasn't completely gone away but it is much better. I just have to be careful to avoid my triggers, gluten, sulfites, and dairy. I do take pro-biotics sometimes for this and digestive enzymes. I did want to mention one of my sisters had a problem with a large abdomen that turned out to be a benign cyst. So there can be other causes.

My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

HI gluten-free in DC,

Thanks for responding! Well, I haven't been gluten free for that long, only about a month, with mistakes! I'm starting to keep a diary of what I eat, so if I do make mistakes, I can backtrack! I think dairy is a problem also! So that's on the no list for now! Just been eating rice and chicken for a while, till my stomach calms down! I am also taking Probiotics. What are digestive enzymes? Are they different than Probiotics? Is it beneficial to take them at the same time?
Thanks for any replies!

Just to add to this. Many digestive enzymes can contain gluten or dairy based ingredients. Please be sure to look at the labels. I love digestive enzymes, but the ones in my house I had to throw way after the diagnosis :(

They are extremely helpful though and would recommend them. Also the probotics are awesome. I actual take some at present and they are helping alot. I don't know if you can take them at the same time or not. I would either ask a doctor or a professional, I have an awesome GNC type place close to my house and they are very educated.

Best of luck!
