In Topic: Stomach Pain On The Lower Left Side

23 May 2011 - 08:52 AM

hey RJ. is the pain in LLQ (lower left quadrant) how you initially presented with symptoms for celiac? I was hoping Dennis would add to my question about what he makes of this issue. My celiac pain was more like classic gallbladder pain up near my right rib. so this llq pain really came out of nowhere. I tested negative for h pylori, giarda, but only a biopsy through colonoscopy can determine if it's microscopic colitis. have you had the colonoscopy in addition to the ct? I have to go for the c'scope soon. apparently microscopic colitis and celiac are common pairings....

the ct scan concluded that the thickening was consistent with diffuse colitis which means that something I ate or have been eating caused the inflammation. It could have been the advil I was taking for back pain, or it could have been the prilosec that I re started due to bad reflux.

Quincy sorry I have been busy and not able to get on here much. My GI Doc can not find anything wrong and said that the pain was from the celiac dease and it would go away after my stomach got better. Which in the last 3 weeks or so the pain has went away but for some reason came back on Saturday not sure why. I was tested for Colitis after my GP thought I had it because of the thinking of the colon but it came back negative. So I'm not sure what it is I was hoping that someone on here would have a good answer. I go back to see the GI in July I will see how I fell then.

Mine are 500mg and it says to take one a day so that is all I take. It does seem to help me.

I just went through a ct scan for lower left pain. my gp said it was diverticulitis though I had no fever. my friend has diverticulitis and doesn't get fevers so that could be a possibility?

I had a colonoscopy first and everything was good but I had a spot that looked bruised so the took a tissue sample and it can back ok. Since I still had the pain he did a CT scan and said I had some thinking of the colon and he thought is was colitis and started me on some medication which did not help so he sent me to a GI doctor for a second opinion so the GI doctor did a Sigmoidoscopy which took some more tissue which came back fine also and said I did not have colitis so he had me do a small bowel follow-through which came back fine and said the pain had to be from the celiac disease and once it healed all the way it would go away. I'm not sure that I believe him because I have had stomach problems for a couple of years and the pain just came up in December of last year usual I just had D.

I hope you can get some answers on you pain. It never hurts to get a second opinion. Even good doctors can miss what is causing the problem. If the doctor takes offense then he is not the doctor for you. Good doctors donít mind that you are going for a second, third or more opinions. Keep us updated on your situation.

I have thought about the second opinion but I think I'm going to wait until my follow up in July. I had another blood test last week and it still shows that my antibodys are still up a little bit but have come way down so I also need to find out where I'm getting the gluten from. The GI doc said it is the celiac disease that is causing the pain and that it should go away once I get my antibodys to nromal.
