Gastritis

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

Not sure if this is the best place for this question, but i'll give it a shot.

So, I got my endoscopy test results back a couple weeks ago. No sign of gluten damage, obviously, but the doctor did notice some mild gastritis. Makes sense, since I've been having pains/problems with other foods. I'd been having a good stomach week when the scope was done, but have had problems on and off. Usually the pain is in the left side of my abdomen, and when I get into something with too much dairy or soy, or forget to take my digestive enzymes and eat anything too dense (meat, whole grains, etc).

For those who have gastritis (on and off, or constantly), what foods trigger it for you, what do you do to cope, and have there been any other complications?

My doctor reccomended I switch to tylenol for painkillers (I usually use ibuprophen) and of course go easy on the alcohol. But as we Celiac's know, there's always something food related...

Anyway, any suggestions, stories, etc appreciated.

Survived the holidays without too much pain (yet), despite having some likely quite buttery treats and accidentally eating some stuffing.

Thanks

Peg

My daughter had it but not from a food. Hers was from an antibiotic. They gave her some kind of med to help with the pain. I mainly fed her mild foods for a couple of weeks, like warm chicken and rice and warm broth. She was not supposed to have any overly hot or cold or spicy foots.

Hi Peg!

I have it. Developed between two and three years gluten-free! I am finally improving health wise so I am excited to have my next endo -- not for at least another six months to see if the gastritis and other digestive inflammation is subsiding or hopefully by that point - gone!

I know you have already removed some foods and hate to suggest others, perhaps you could try drinking nettle tea -- there is a thread regarding treating inflammation with nettle tea -- it is working for me and some others, while others have noticed no improvement -- just may be something you'd like to try.

Oh! yes, I did read the nettle tea thread, and meant to go get some to try. I'll give it a shot.

I will hopefully have a proper GI in the near future (I have my referral anyway, still have to book an apt) and see what he/she says about it.

It's flared up quite a bit the past week or so (also due to mild glutenings/milk consumption, and more alcohol than usual), enough that I had to stay home yesterday. My stomach is still being touchy, but no eating out or anything unusual for me for the next week if I can manage it. At least now I know what's going on. Next is to figure out what else I shouldn't be eating.

Nettle tea. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks guys

Peg

Ok, so I finally got me some nettle tea yesterday. Not bad taste wise. I don't know if it helped my stomach situation or not. It certainly didn't help immediately (actually felt a little worse while drinking it) but today I am doing relatively better.

Last night was a killer. Yesterday I ate a little too much 'may contain soy' treats that obviously did contain soy. I hereby declare soy the root of all evil. Ok, 2nd to gluten, but it almost makes me feel worse. The side of my stomach was aching, felt like some slight heartburn (beginning of acid reflux, which I thankfully never have), and general nausea and feeling like crap. I took extra ginger, drank down some apple cider vinegar and water (not sure if that helped, but it made my throat taste less gross), took a tylenol and eventually got to sleep. This morning felt pretty decent. Wohoo!

The reason for this current bad flareup is probably that I was horribly sick on New Year's Eve. A little too much drinky combined with questionable snacking = disaster. I hate throwing up in the first place (thankfully, for someone who feels nauseous half the time, I've got a pretty strong stomach), and this was some of the worst I've done in years. So bad... I think the acid probably damaged my stomach and throat a bit.

So, back to the nettle tea: does it take a few days to feel any difference? I'll try some more tonight.

Thanks

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • 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.
