Pain Relievers

8 posts in this topic

Every single time I take this certain over the counter pain reliever, I feel very glutened, I don't take NSAIDS so this is the other. I have a corn allergy but this is more of a painful digestive gluten type reaction. What do other super sensitives take for pain relief. Is there anything natural and not full of chemicals? I am just having a hard time trusting companies because their answers are so vague. Does it contain gluten on not should be a yes or no answer.

Thanks,

-MO

It's the corn. I have Tylenol made at a compounding pharmacy. No corn, no gluten, no soy. I can take it with no problems, and although it's expensive it's worth it.

You are probably right. Corn is starting to make me feel even worse than gluten if that is at all possible. Trapped gas and PAIN!

Do you need a RX for what you are talking about?

Have you ever tried taking Curamin? It's made of turmeric, and many people find relief from pain when taking it. You can check it out at www.curamin.com.

If I eat corn I'm ok but if I eat something made from corn (bread) or something like medication my tummy doesn't like it. The generic armour had corn so I just have it compounded so I don't have to worry :) Hopefully you'll find something :)

Here in South Dakota I have to have a prescription. I think it varies by state. I got my prescription at the free clinic. I didn't want to pay for an office visit on top of the cost of the meds.

If you're in a spot and can't get the compounding pharmacy yet, there's a plant that I've been using. Datura. You can buy it and there are many native versions across the country. It has quite pretty and showy flowers that tend to bloom in the evenings. You can also crush the leaves/petals and use them as a contact anesthetic for some types of pain.

This book has a good section on how one variety can be made safely (and unsafely): http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/Herbal-Medicine-American-Southwest-Charles/dp/0977133303

I've seen this in various libraries, so I'm sure you could find it on an interlibrary loan.

This stuff grows along the highways and in my yard, so it was nice to find out I could use it for pain, too! :-) It's not a miracle cure, but it has been effective.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
