i have been having excruciating lower back pain ever since i have been 8 or 9. it has been unexplained and jst ignored by my docs and now that i am slightly suspecting celiac i was wondering if it could be related.
do you know if you have food intolerances such as wheat, rye, baley and oats which is celiacs or to presevatives theses are the top reasons i get lower back pain, going gluten free has helped me tremendously and getting rid of all preservatives especially bht, sodiun nitrite and sodium nitrate, edta, monosodium glutemate.

I started having lower back pain when I was around 12 or 13. It got worse and worse as the years went on untill it was excruciating every day. After discovering I was a celiac, I learned that because of malabsorbtion of calcium, that I had a condition called osteomalacia (I think that's how it's spelled). It is basically microscopic malformation of the bones. Even tiny fractuers. It's like osteoperosis. Good news...After going gluten-free it started to get better. I have been gluten-free for almost 2 years now, and I can say that my back pain is basically gone. I still will feel it if I over excersise, or do too much work, but I think a regular person would feel that too.
I would recommend that you take a good multi vitamin that obviously includes calcium. Up your intake of dairy (unless you are lactose intlerant) eat calcium rich foods like, spinach and broccoli. Also start doing resistance escersises. Lift weights ect. It will hurt at first but will aid in the healing and bone growth.
Good luck, Wendy
