Lower Back Pain
0

10 posts in this topic

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.

Thankyou everyone who answered about the back pain ! I have never asked anyone before if they suffered also, it is encouraging to hear others say it lessens with strick diet ! I am encouraged ! Thankyou !

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.

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
