Slight Burning On Left Side Just Below Rib Cage
0

7 posts in this topic

Had this burning sensation yesterday just below the rib cage on left side that lasted a few hours and then disappeared. Also aching in the lower back. Can this be associated with celiac?

As for the lower back pain......before I was diagnosed with celiacs, I was having a lot of pain in the lower left side of my back. I thought it was age, lack of exercise, repeated small injuries et. Anyhow when I went though the testing and had to give up dairy, soy and gluten the pain went away. I really didn't think about it. Through all the accidental glutenings the pain did not come back.

Some celiacs heal and are able to have dairy again. A couple days ago I decided to try a little velveta cheese to see if it bothered me. It did. 36 hours latter I had a GI response and the pain in the lower left side of my back came back. Feels like my hip is out but it's not. I worked through it yesterday but today I'm laying up with a heating pad and drinking coconut milk and fruit smoothies to get fluids and easy to digest nutrients into my intestines.

So my current experience tells me that yes the pain you are feeling may very well be a response to what you are eating.

Hope this helps, RA

hi,

I dont think these symptoms connected to celiac disease.. But anyway you consult a doctor.. Burning sensation and back pain may be due to pressure in that particular area.... You can go for Ice therapy i.e apply a cold compress, such as ice or a bag of frozen peas, wrapped in a towel. Don't apply ice directly to your skin because you could damage it. I can also suggest you about irehab.com where back pain relief program is given that helps you to strengthen the muscles around that particular area..Hope this help you..

I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease and I to have a burning pain below my left ribs. It feels like a bruise when I touch it but there is no bruise there, I have had it for several months and it comes and goes!! Whether it is related or not though I am unsure.

I had a biopsy on monday. I also had the burning sensation around that area and they found duodenal ulcers. Maybe you can look into that.

Do you still have that pain? I have that too. I started gluten-free 9/1 and the pain had pretty much gone away, but in the last couple weeks I have been noticing it again. It's not disabling or anything, but a nuisance.

I had it exactly like this, too, with gluten. However, mine really got bad after a surgery when I was given medicine that had 'bad' things for me in it. So they did ultrasounds of the area, checked for kidney infection, worried that perhaps I had internal bleeding or something.

Everything looked totally normal, even though the pain was very bad. But when I stay off gluten and other bad foods, it goes away. Comes back if I get the bad stuff, always in that spot. No idea what it is, but I've had it too!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
