Royally Screwed Up. Do You Get This Symptom?
Posted 04 February 2013 - 11:12 AM
Friday at a party, I really messed up. I was eating a dip that the person told me that she made sure was gluten free...well come to find out she didnt know that the crab meat was not real crab and that it had wheat in it. Totally not her fault! I should have skipped it...anyway.
So now I have a migraine, bowel issues and what feels like a major UTI although it doesnt burn..it just feels like there is pressure on my bladder and feels a little like period cramps. Do any of you get period like cramps when you are glutened? I went to urgent care and I dont have a UTI...Just wondering if any of you get bladder and or period like cramping with gluten.
Thanks - MO

I also get weird pains seemingly not period related almost next to my leg joint, sometimes a bit higher but really low in my abdomen and slightly off to the side. Have it right now, nagging pain that almost feels like cramps but not quite, there now that I think about it. Thanks a lot! :-p And always the left side. I also have a history of kidney issues from my mom's side of the family.
As to it being a gluten reaction though, I couldn't say. I got a rash and my mouth burns and I nerve pain in my periphery from what I can only guess is gluten, but that's it for immediacy, and that was never a confirmed glutening.
I've read that being a celiac and eating gluten can do a number on the kidneys though, so if you think you've had it awhile without being dxed you should probably look into it. And if you have kidney issues being a celiac you should be eating more calcium and meat etc, not less like they usually tell you for kidney damage.

I just get this bladder, period like cramps- lower intestinal pain when glutened and it hurts pretty badly.
Cave, sounds like we have very similar issues. Celiac can be so tricky sometimes.

Cave, after my period i get cramping. Its due to ovulation and it can get pretty bad. Mine is generally located near the hip area and takes a few days to go away. Its bad enough that all i wanna do is curl into a ball and sleep sometimes.
