I have wondered if anyone has exsperianced lower back pain along with bloating, it seems like when I have eaten gluten foods that cause bloating , I also have a severe lower back ache, when I was super strict and ate only gluten free, the back ache went away.

Oh yes indeed! Ugly low back pain. :(

Severe pelvic pain throughout.

(I have major joint/bone/muscle pain from celiac but it is LESS
since being gluten-free.)

Count me in too. Had serious low back pain, more so on the right side. Eating bananas and taking magnesium (500 mg) really helped.

Yep. I have a couple of degenerating discs that present ongoing issues. Interestingly, when I went gluten-free, my back pain lessened. Totally was not expecting that, since I knew there was a clear cause for the pain. Nevertheless, I could sleep on my stomach again, which I hadn't been able to do even after spinal injections and PT. Now it seems there's a pretty clear connection between the times when it flares up and gluten exposure. I get headaches and GI stuff first, then the back and the other joints jump in on the second day.

Wow. Thank you for posting this topic. I, too, get joint and muscle pain (and fibromyalgia flares) from eating gluten, but never connected the low back pain into the mix. I have degenerating discs in my lumbar and cervical spine. Of course getting glutened would make that pain worse. Duh! (gentle head smack!) :lol: I will pay attention now to that connection. Yet one more reason to be even more careful.

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

I also have the fibromyalgia flares, and till you said it, I would never have linked it with the gluten ! Thanks,

I've had pain up and down my back for about 8 years. Lower back pain is the worst. I also have GI problems associated with this. Tried chiropractic, had 5 epidurals, mobic, accupuncture. I've been through it all. I've been off gluten for 3 days now and I'm really feeling a lot better. I hope it lasts. Needs some relief. So tired of being in pain.

Yes and it feels like my internal organs are petrified into rocks.

Good luck and read the labels - even when it says gluten-free!

Best of luck,

Cali
