I realize that with celiac comes lots of abdominal discomfort but I was curious if anyone has areas that always hurt, not just occasionally. I have two sore spots that always ache and if you put pressure on them, it's painful! My first one is near my belly button on my right side (I have a long, thin stomach according to a tech who did a barium swallow years ago, so I assume this would be near the beginning of my small intestines). The other is my lower right abdomen, near my ovary. I assumed it could be an ovarian cyst, though I've never had one, but now I wonder if it's from the celiac I've had for my entire life without knowing until recently! Does this sound typical? Anyone else here have any aches and pains that never go away? Also, did you get any answers as to what they were? I go for my scope in a few weeks, so hopefully I can start to get some answers but I know it's not going to help with the sore spot on my lower abdomen. FYI, I was diagnosed via blood test (really high anti gliadin and anti endomysial antibody levels, low vitamin D and B12... I also have DH on my scalp). II have no idea what to expect with the scope!
