Can You Get Rid Of Chest Pain?
0

5 posts in this topic

After being glutened that is, or do you just have to ride it out? I have never had a pain last this long before and it's really freaking me out. It's been an hour and a half. Normally if I get a pain I just stretch or swing my arms around (I know it sounds crazy but hey, it works) but I can't with this one. It's a sharp stabbing pain in my chest on the right side it goes under my breast and into my armpit that happens if I try to take a deep breath.

What do you do when this happens??

I think I would see a doctor immediately to check.

Others may have additional advice but I would not hang around if it is still there.

Doesnt sound like what happens to me . My just pains are not from being glutened but are form other sorts of trama like tripping or some other accident. That causes my heart to go into afib and I can feel it right away when it happens with a popping and gurgling sound followed by all sorts of pain and shortness of breath. Usually takes a day or to go back to normal. Cardiologist said that its my body reacting to changes. Used to happen all the time and three years ago I had minor heart surgery for part of it but then went vegan which helped even more. How it might happen every few months instead a few times a week. The point is to get your heart rhythm checked. I think the link between celiac and heart problems is something just beginning to be explored.

Well since it was on the right side of my chest I wasn't overly worried about my heart..but maybe I should be?? But the pain did last over three days, it thankfully was reducing in pain as each day went by so I could breathe much easier by the third day but I don't know what to think about it at all. I'm fine now though. It just seems like some kind of fluke or something.

My pains are usually in the middle although sometimes hard to tell for sure. Three days is awhile though. I guess it cant hurt to get your heart rhythm checked. good luck

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
