I had that burning sensation after I got the H. Pylori bacteria, which causes stomach ulcers. So I might have had a small ulcer or at least some sensitive areas in my stomch, which the HP bacteria damaged. A stool test diagnosed that bacteria. I took mastic gum capsules and turkey rhubarb tincture to kill the HP and used L-glutamine (powder dissolved in water) to heal my stomach. The burning sensation disappeared after a few weeks of treatment.

I get a burning pain like that when I eat soy or as part of my glutening process. It's usually one of the first symptoms for me. I thought I had h. pylori for a bit, but it wore off after a couple days after eating gluten. And it only comes then. It's definitely something you should pay attention to, though.

your GI couldnt help u? what do these doctors do anyways?? do they ever have answers? sorry i digress...

i had the burning months ago- and because of $$ & not wanting antibiotics i went ahead and treated myself as if it were H.Pylori... i took 3 doses of GSE (15 drops in 8oz water) for 3 weeks, & some Pepto Bismol... it cleared up. if it didnt get better i was gonna go to the doc. just to make sure it didnt progress to a bleeding ulcer.

**BUT- stabbing pain- you need to make sure that's nothing serious- maybe find a different GI... it could be harmless like a psoas muscle spasm- or it could be serious-

just remember- we're not docs here- make sure u get the proper care

I agree that 'we're not docs here'. Did you see a doc about your burning stomach pain? What did you use to kill the H. Pylori bacteri? (What's GSE?) Mastic gum is an antibacterial botanical which has absolutely no side effects. (I took it for 5 weeks and felt nothing beyond improved stomach.) It's been used for years in the Middle East to treat stomach problems.

i want to buy some of that Mastic Gum- sounds great.

GSE is Grapefruit Seed Extract- very bitter, but supposedly can kill almost any bacteria, virus, microbe, candida, etc.

i LOVE the stuff-

the burning stopped, AND my sinusitis got 90% better. but i only did the 3 doses for a month. ive had GERD a few times, and my sinuses have started to be inflamed again... so im not sure if i killed it all off.?

i only have catastrophic insurance... so dont feel like going to doc all the time. have to see my GI soon tho- so i'll let him know what was goin on, see what he thinks.

He really couldn't think of ANYTHING that causes left lower quadrant pain?!

Um, how about diverticulitis? That's a pretty common disorder that causes left lower quad pain. :rolleyes:

Have you been scoped?

OMG, I have the same burning..! It's in the upper stomach..not located in one spot. It feels like my whole upper stomach is burning. I got a blood test for H pylori and it came back negative. Either it's old age or it's gluten intolerance. The last time I went gluten free, I was getting acid reflux and painful pressure but not burning.

I'm going to go gluten and grain free for awhile and see if the burning goes away.

My ND thought I had bacterial overgrowth that wasn't pylori. My mother had pylori. She told me her symptom and it wasn't like mine. Her symptom was burning but in a single spot on the side of her stomach.

Could it be an ulcer? I had a flare about 5 weeks ago and my new GI was not taking it seriously. Severe abdominal pain and more recently severe vertical pain under my rib bone. My old GI thought my Celiac had gone undiagnosed for a long time and wanted me to have a capsule endoscopy as soon as I got a new GI. I had to really push him to get it. I had it on Monday and he called me yesterday. Totally different demeanor and no longer dismissive. They found an ulcer. I have to have it biopsied. That won't be for another three weeks because I live in a small town now and he needs a special anesthesiologist (my old hometown had a large hospital).

I was newly diagnosed in June after being bedridden for 6 weeks. Loved my old GP ant the GI he referred me to. The test results were given to me literally the night before we moved to a new state. After following the gluten-free diet I felt better for a while. I took my son to the new GI to get genetically tested before college (phew - he's negative, one less thing to blame mom for).

I'm currently unemployed and a resource geek so if anyone ever wants me to look anything up just let me know. This forum has helped me more than I can say. Being sick in a new state is challenging and thanks to all of you I don't feel so alone.

Loey

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
