In Topic: Sharp, Stabbing Upper Abdominal Pain With Gluten Exposure?

05 October 2008 - 07:16 AM

I have severe pain at the bottom of my ribs is this "upper abdominal'?

Thanks for your reply...the pain that I experience is just below my sterum and centered just below my ribs. Is this similar?

Hi- I was recently diagnosed with Celiac by both TTG IGA levels and a positive biopsy. I have been gluten-free for 2 months and have gained a much needed 15 lbs since eliminating gluten. I think that I have accidently ingested gluten a couple of times. The first incident resulted in a feeling like someone stabbed my in the upper abdomen, a sharp piercing pain. I contacted my disinterested GI and asked him if this could be a reaction to gluten. He replied "No" and ordered a HILA Scan of my Gall bladder and an ultrasound of my abdomen; both were negative. He wanted to do a CT scan but working in the field of oncology I understand the importance of minimizing these scan and since I had one recently that diagnosed an intutusception in my small bowel, I declined. I suspect that I have been exposed again and have the same sharp pains in my upper abdomen? Has anyone experienced similar pain? Thanks!

Thanks for the recommendation but sadly my job requires extensive travel and I only actually eat maybe <6 meals a week at home. Any recommendations for gluten-free dining guides?

Search "Glutenese" in the forums....same thing.

Not saying you cant take it, but you shouldnt rely on it or think it will keep you from being damaged. It wont.

Thanks! Now perhaps another question... Is it worth the $25 a bottle in the event of any accidental ingestion until I better master all the foods that are acceptable for celiacs?
