New Stomach Pains :(
0

10 posts in this topic

9 days ago I started getting new and different stomach pains , the pain is almost like my stomach is being pinched and it reallys really tight and quite hard. Also last week I started getting back pains pretty much the same pain that has started in my stomach ( and possibly pain in the kidneys ). Than on friday I noticed the colour of my stools became very dark and and than a different colour over the weekend . Than since yesterday I have been burping lots.

I have been to see my GP doctor and he said I need to go back to my Gastro but that's gonna be a few weeks I think . I also did a urine test at the doctors it's been sent to the lab because of traces of protein .

But i'm kinda worried what's going on , I did wonder because of the stool colour changes if maybe I had some kind of stomach infection but I have no D or fever or anything . I just been reading about stomach ulcer's can cause stomach and back pains ( Also seem to be having ulcer's in my mouth lately) . My pains seem quite bad at night in both the stomach and back and it's very difficult to get to sleep but once i'm alseep the pain doesn't wake me up . And when I wake up in the morning the pain is not bad but gets bad as the day goes on and than i'm just getting the stomach or back pain for almost most of the day .

Just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem , or might know what's going on ?

Thanks

David ( Tennisman)

Could be gallbladder? If it's low functioning it can cause those symptoms. An ultrasound will show if you have stones, but you would need a HIDA scan to guage the level of function you have.

It also sounds like gastritis..but the cause is the big question. I developed it myself and don't know why.

Get your gallbladder when you go to the other doctor checked.

As long as your poo isn't white (sign of colon cancer) or black (sign of bleeding in upper intestine) you're okay.

I will ask my doctor to do the gallbladder tests .

My last Endoscopy in late 2010 showed mild gastritis the doctor said all Celiac's have some gastritis not sure if that is right though . Does gastritis cause you problems or have you found a way to treat the symptoms ?

Thanks

I will ask my doctor about the gallbladder .

It was very very dark brown I don't think it was black. Than at the weekend it was very dark green , online it says green could be an infection ?

Thanks

If the green isn't constant, what did you eat? Thats probably what did it. For example, eating too many blueberries can cause it to go really dark or eating to much spinage can cause it to go green.

Gastritis just started for me in August. I've been gluten-free for 15 mos. I've also taken soy, dairy, peanuts, refined sugar, corn, most fruits, and tomatoes/peppers out of my diet. No relief yet...and no known cause.

I don't think I ate anything that could have caused it , but I did drink lime squash just by itself I'm not sure if that could have caused it .

Sorry to hear that , hopefully you can find a way to fix the problem soon . Does Gastritis cause back pain as well ?

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
