Itching With Gluten Intolerance

6 posts in this topic

I have an internal itch on right side abdomen for about a year now. Comes and goes, recently told I had a gluten intolerance and possible other food intolerance or allergies although haven't had the money to get tested. Just wanted to know if this was normal, also in the same area sometimes I feel a pinching like discomfort inside. Thanks!

Strange you mention that itch. I used to get it regularly. I thought it was related to my appendix.

But, I don't remember having it since I've been gluten free.

Hi tippi2birds,

I'd had these for years. Now (after a 9month stint working in a bakery, quit May 2011) I have all over dermatitis (probably dermatitis herpetiformis associated with gluten intolerance). The itch sometimes felt a bit like a nerve tingle for me. Now that I have been full blown skin itch/blister I wish I'd known earlier what the cause was. I hope you are eating gluten free and be aware of other triggers for the skin problems (see the Dermatitis Herpetiformis forum here on celiac.com).

I get a pinching sensation in my upper abdomen just right of my epigastric region but not quite the RUQ. The best way I can explain it is that is feels like a rubber band is pulling and I feel the tension as the tighter it is stretched. I developed this 15 months after I went gluten free. I do sometimes get minor discomfort, sometimes slight pain in the same area or RUQ. I had my gallbladder evaulated Feb. 2010 and I didn't have any stones, but had a slightly underfunctioning gallbladder. I got the same sensation when they injected me with the CCK the medicine that mimics a fatty meal to stimulate the gallbladder. I still get this occasionally and I can directly relate it to to much fat consumption. I do have a threshold, but sometimes it is hard to pinpoint exactly what that threshold is. I definately know when I have consumed to much though. :P I do think the gallbladder function has gotten worse, but I'm not really in any pain per se, so I don't have any plans to do anything about the gallbladder at this time.

This is totally killing me right now. Right side upper quadrant itches like mad with nothing there, but also hurts inside. It's driving me mad today. :angry:

Found an old topic on that same thing.

I have experienced this too. It is an itching sensation, apparently internal, in the abdomen area. It is occasionally accompanied by pain the same area.

It makes me crazy sometimes, I have to really work to ignore it. I think it is occuring less often now, as I have been gluten free for 5 months.
