Do You Give Anything To Help Ease Pain When Glutened?
0

10 posts in this topic

My DD has been gluten-free for a couple of weeks now and I wanted to ask if your child has been glutened or is having symptoms do you give them anything to help. There have been a few times when DD is complaining of her stomach hurting but she hasn't had any gluten that I can think of. We are attending a family birthday party this weekend and so I am trying to prepare myself for a " what if" instance. I do keep snacks with me that she could have but was wondering if anyone has a kept secret...lol to help get over the pain.

I used to take Gas Rx and ibuprofin myself. I hope someone else can help.

Honestly, if its gluten causing the pain I sleep it off. It's the best fix. After that, I've found exercise burns it out of me. Bit she's a child and she may feel differently.

I usually treat the symptom. For me, if my stomach hurts its acid...and I live French fries for it. Or a loaded baked potato.

But she may get low acid so she may need betaine hcl.

Everyone's different. Generally, probiotics and antacids help people. As well as digestive enzymes.

This evening I made a rice and chicken dish for dinner. We eat plain yogurt with our rice as a side dish with and today was the first time I bought Dannon plain yogurt. That was the only thing that she had that was different, I have made this dish a million times and she doesn't complain from it. Today afer dinner about 45 minutes after she had severe stomache pains and diareha. Her pains were so bad they kept her crying for about an hour. I gave her some children's pepto not to sure if they helped or not, but OMG I don't know what happened or if it could of been the yogurt. It doesn't have any gluten in it.

She may have a temporary or permanent problem with milk: lactose or casein. Many Celiacs can't tolerate milk in one or both forms. Sometimes it's permanent, other times temporary. You may try taking her off milk products and trying them again in a few months.

It isn't unusual to have other food intolerances, unfortunately. They can be temporary or permanent. Sometimes, after the gut heals you are able to reintroduce the food.

I don't think milk is the issue, she always has cereal, cheese, rice pudding, etc., and no issues with those. My only other thing would be the different brand of yogurt. Thanks for your input though I appreciate it.

Start a food and symptom journal, and keep the label from any food she may have reacted to. Once you have a few episodes start comparing labels of what she's had in the last 24 hours. I say 24 because we are known to react up to 24 hours.

Also, you may try her on digestive enzymes with meals, if she isn't on them already. It will hep break down her food. I use Digest Gold.

Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint what the problem is. And sometimes it's just a part if healing - random stomach aches. Along with 100 other things, unfortunately.

Hang in there.

What about for lunch? Breakfast? What was she exposed to during the day? Is there a stomach bug going around where you are? Was the chicken fully cooked?

Sometimes, tracking down a culprit requires big-picture thinking, and sometimes, it's impossible.

Papaya enzymes. If it gets really bad and she starts vomitting, we have Zofran which can nip it in the bud.

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
