Left Side Pain
0

11 posts in this topic

I have continual left side pain that runs from under my ribs to my hip. I do notice it gets worse if I have been glutened but I really don't understand why I have it all the time. Does anyone have this at all?

Also does anyone know if drinking alcohol makes this worse or does any extra damage? I have had to quiet drinking altogether because I noticed I was feeling drunk after only 2 drinks and the pain got worse on my left side and I was sick for weeks after.

Has anyone also tried Amberen for perimenopause or menopause? I have been thinking about giving it a try but wanted some input if anyone has any.

Thanks Everyone!

Whoa baby, alcohol just isn't worth it for me, anymore.

I can't have more than 1 drink (like going from 0 to 100 mph in two seconds), and it messes with my blood sugar...and doesn't taste the same....

I use natural progesterone cream for hormonal issues, and tried very low dose progenolone/dha for a few months...which worked GREAT, btw.

I've just diagnosed myself with gluten intolerance, but I did have an issue about four years ago with severe pain on my left side. At the time, I was in such pain that I wasn't drinking, so I'm sure that had nothing to do with it. The more I read in these posts, the more symptoms I'm linking to gluten intolerance.

i have the pain a lot too- mostly on the left side... also from under the ribs down the hip... but i also have muscular pain/issues too... my diaphraghm, iliopsoas, and mostly every muscle in my trunk is WHACKED from being a massage therapist and gasping for air from my thyroid breathing issues.

sometimes im not sure tho if the pain is starting from my muscles and then pinching my intestines... or if the pain is starting from my Descending colon, and then referring to my muscles... its BEYOND ANNOYING & TOTALLY INTERFERES WITH MY QUALITY OF LIFE..

i wonder too if it is a seperate issue from being glutened???? i only say this- cause when i DO get glutened, i get a specific pain where my small intestine is....

i wish it would go away ... :(((

hope others have some helpful suggestions

It took a while to figure out my cause of pain... I was taking HYOSCYAMINE SUL 0.125 MG for Spasms till I figured out that dairy was causing the pain...

Thank you all for your input, it has helped me alot. I don't drink anymore because it just isnt worth the pain. I am going to make a doctors appt and get checked out and also talk about the natural way for hormone replacement.

Thanks again everyone!

Hi Kiki! I just thought I'd add my 2 cents real quick. If what you were drinking was beer, or whiskey, or bourbon, that will most definately trigger the pain. All those drinks contain wheat and or barley or rye. I've had to kiss my fav booze goodbye. Anything that is in the rum vodka or tequila familys, in moderation should be ok. Also I've noticed that early in my dealing w/ Celiac I am experiencing lactose intolerance as well, so anything w/ milk is not advised either, at least not much. Good luck! :)

pain in my left rib cage is the first sign for me that i have been glutened. headache follows (step two and confirmation that i have, indeed, been glutened) i drink, but only beer (redbridge) as even wine knocks me on my a$$.....

I had pain on my left side constantly for years before going gluten free. It comes back when I eat gluten. I'd even get a hard knot on the left side of my abdomen if I wasn't regular with BM's. All alcohol except tequila makes me sick; I guess because tequila is derived from Agave.

I get that type of pain when I have been glutened and when I get constipated (which for me is the major problem I have when I have dairy).

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
