Trapped Gas After A Glutening
0

9 posts in this topic

Hey All,

I had a bad glutening on Tuesday :( For the past two days, I've had terrible gas pain and pressure that migrates from the intestinal area all the way up to the top of my chest. I've tried alka seltzer, max daily dose of GAS X max strength and it's still hanging on.

I'd almost forgotten how painful it is. It happened all the time before I went gluten free. This is the first time in nearly two years and I am dyin here :blink: Anyone have any fixes?

TIA

Janie

When my kids were little and had gas that wouldn't move on, I would hang them upside down by holding their legs for a minute. Then stand straight up. The real trick is to get the hips straight above the chest.

this will work really well in a skirt, at the office.

I keep Mylanta Ultimate Strength in the fridge. It's a temporary settlement.

But this week, I have had awful cramping and the big D off and on for a week or so. I have heard that there is a intestinal bug going around. :huh:

Hope you feel better soon.

Try some peppermint tea or some peppermint Altoids. And some milk of magnesia to clear things out. And some Pepto Bismol to coat yur innnards and relieve pain. And maybe some aspirin and wine too.

Never tried the headstand in the office myself but I am a male so it wouldn't work for me. :D

Well, it might work, but wouldn't cause such a sensation :D

I second the peppermint - if nothing else it makes the burps taste better. :lol: On lining the innards, I have always eaten yogurt, or gone to the extreme measure of searing them with neat scotch :ph34r:

All great suggestions--I get this too....last night, as a matter of fact <_<

It's interesting that alcohol was mentioned--I find wine helpful (at night).

Other things that help me are walking, Phazyme (not the chewables--they contain gluten), and laying on my back and massaging my stomach in a clockwise rotation.

Ah Hah......my hypothetical theory! Searing, yes...I like that word. :rolleyes:

I have used mint tea for gas. Pepto is what I use for nausea but don't think it helps for gas. I also really think wine helps...or at least I don't feel it as much any more.

Some yoga poses are what I use. This one is actually called "wind releasing position" and can be done without any yoga experience. http://www.yoga-for-beginners-a-practical-guide.com/pawanmukta-asana.html

Cat/cow and childs' pose are also easy and helpful. Here are instructions: http://www.livestrong.com/article/101875-relieve-gas-yoga-poses/

Hope you're better soon.

Wow, maybe I should just get drunk :lol: I have some red wine I've been meaning to open. I will try that, the yoga and the peppermint. Thanks so much guys. I went to Zumba this morning thinking I could shake it out. Unfortunately it did not work :D

Gosh I love this place. If all else fails, I will try searing it out with neat scotch!

Many thanks!!

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
