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

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
