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! :)

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).

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
