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

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
