In Topic: Had My Endoscopy- So Confused

28 September 2012 - 05:47 PM

Thank you for the replies. I have no intentions of eating any gluten at all, ever! I am just so floored that a GI doctor could be so uneducated! I will not be going back to this office and I plan on talking to my primary care about everything that happened. I am taking this seriously because I have two young children that need a healthy mommy! I am having bloodwork done to re-check my antibody and vitamin levels in a few weeks and my primary care said we'll see where we go from there.

Congratulations! I am just starting this journey and I was just expecting to start feeling better right away but I have quickly learned that it's a process. The damage didn't happen overnight and it's certainly not going to heal overnight. Thank you for the encouragement and I hope that someday, I too, will be able to say that I feel human again!

In Topic: Intestinal Pain Radiating/referred Pain To Back Pain?

What do you mean? Didn't they remove it the first time? Usually, if you have an appendix problem, they remove it before it becomes worse and more dangerous. Once its removed, its unlikely to be an issue.

I mistyped, sorry! I meant I doubt it would be my appendix because I have had the pain in my lower right abdomen a really long time.

That location is kind of low, but maybe gall bladder. The lower one ? appy?

It could be gallbladder but I do know, from a previous barium swallow years ago, that I have a very long and skinny stomach. The technician said it was unusual when he was trying get a x-ray of it (weird, I know). So who knows if it's gallbladder. As for the other pain, I have had it for quite a while so I doubt it's my appendix but again, I don't really know. I guess I will wait and see what the GI doctor says- I have an endoscopy in a few weeks.

I'm actually really glad you posted this. I just asked the question recently about where everyone's 'aches and pains' are located and haven't received any replies yet. I have pain near my belly button on my right side and I have back pain that would be in the same region as the pain near the belly button. I have tried chiropractic, thinking that would help the sore spot on my back, only to be told by the chiropractor that the pain is coming from something internal that is causing the pulling on my back. I can only assume that it's inflammation in my intestines. I also have pain in my lower right abdomen (neary my ovary) and pain in my back in the sacral region on my right side. The pain may be related but I do have arthritis and my doctor suspects possible ankylosing spondylitis. I am new in this journey as I have only been recently diagnosed (a couple of weeks ago) and have been gluten free for only four months. I have no clue what the pain is from or if I will ever know but it would be interesting to know if others have experienced this.
