Can Bloating Lead To Rib Pain And Inflamation?
Posted 20 March 2010 - 02:53 PM
The problem is that I now have this flap of cartilage (my doctor said it was cartilage) or something that sticks out in varying amounts throughout the dayfrom the area around my 10th rib. This does cause pain and tightness in my left side and I can feel that the muscles in that area are also sore. This problem seems to get gradually better, only to come back full force after I have been glutened or if I exercise the muscles around that area.
IS this somethign anyone else has experienced? Can bloating really cause structural damage to the ribs? If anyone has any advice that would be great too!

I was diagnosed just over a month ago, and I also have a lot of rib discomfort (mild pain, and moderate pressure and heaviness). I used to have significant bloating problems, but very little now. I have not had any distortion in how the ribs look, however. The GI specialist I see says rib discomfort like this is not typical of celiac, and is sending me for a CT to investigate for possible liver and pancreas problems: maybe this would be helpful in your case as well??

Gluten Free for about 2 months and I also have a pain on my back - right side around the bottom of my rib cage. Would love to know results of any testing anyone else has had for this. Had this pain right before going gluten free but seem to have it more often and more intense. Has anyone experienced this before? Have not gone to doctor for it but may soon. Thanks for any replys.
Same experience here,
Slight pain right side, and after going gluten-free, the pain increased and still remains some 5 weeks on diet!
