Corn Sensitivity And Pain Relief
0

10 posts in this topic

I am as sensitive to corn as I am gluten. With that said, I was glutened by cc almost 2 weeks ago. I still have gas, pain and some bloating etc. I took Pepto a few times and some Motrin for the pain. I know that they have corn in them but I needed some relief! Now I am left with digestive issues and severe joint pain in my hands and cold sores from the corn reaction.

What can we take for pain when we just have to have something?

There is corn in everything!

Before I realized that I am intolerant to aspirin I found BC Aspirin Powder. It worked really well for pain until it made me even sicker. :blink: It was the ONLY pain reliever I found that didn't contain either gluten or corn.

I wound up having to get a prescription for Tylenol made at a compounding pharmacy. $35 for 200 capsules, and believe me, they are well worth it!

On cornallergens.com, she says that Aleve is corn free. I haven't looked recently to see if that's still the case, and I'm not sure how long she's had that information up, but it might be worth a look, anyway.

But they warn that because they also process gluten, it may be cross contaminated.

I am going to have to check into this. Thanks. I wonder if there is anything homeopathic that we can use?!

I just wanted to say that I tried Aleve which is corn free and I had no reactions to it at all.

Thanks for that info! I am almost out of my specially made Tylenol. Although I only tried Aleve once, long before any food intolerances hit and it didn't do much for my headache, I will try it again. Tylenol never did much for me either so what difference would it make? I WISH I could get ibuprophen, but it is too close to aspirin which I react to badly.

I did have some DH problems but it's def. not corn or gluten related from the Aleve or I would be having bad intestinal problems. If you react to sals, you might get some DH flare up's from it. I really react with skin eruptions from sals.

I was in pretty bad pain so I took it twice over a few days. Sometimes we have to pick our battles ya know! Aleve took care of my pain in about 20 min and it's been gone since last night but this afternoon I noticed some DH flaring on my face. You should be good to go as far as corn goes though.

I got ibuprofen from a compounding pharmacy because I needed something I could take for headaches when CCd without making things worse. Well worth it. I've always had a kind of iffy relationship with aleve, so have been avoiding it, especially after reading the warnings that it may contain gluten.

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
