I get the same thing in the exact spot and I have no idea what's causing it. It doesn't hurt and the only way I can desribe it is as a pressure feeling. I don't have it all the time but enough that it can be annoying. I'm with you, I'm wondering why this is happening and if there's a way to stop it from happening.
I'm seeing a GP, my family doctor. He referred me to a GI specialist but I don't know when that appointment will be yet, it's a long wait. So in the mean time I want to ask him about testing for celiac as he mentioned it to me a few months back. My appointment with my doctor isn't until March 2 so it will be longer then 3 days that I'll be on a gluten free diet when/if the test is done. So will a week of being gluten free make a difference?
Thanks for the help, I'm definitely going to ask to be tested. So is hair loss, ribbon stools, occasional abdominal twitching and left sided abdominal pain associated with celiac? I was reading a few sites and didn't see those symptoms listed. The main symptoms listed weren't very helpful, they really only listed gas, bloating and diarrhea as common GI symptoms.
