Is Low Back Pain Normal When Having An Attack?

Make sure you are completely gluten free (cross contamination) including all medications, lipstick etc. Patience is the next step. Think about removing all dairy from your diet cause damage villi often can not release the enzymes need to digest lactose (milk sugar).

Short term fix? Heating pad for your back?

Keep a food journal to help determine other possible food intolerances (besides milk).

Oh, have you had a bone scan? I am 52 and had two vertebrae fractures just after my diagnosis. The pain was awful and I did NOTHING to cause the fractures! Osteopenia in hips and lower spine (one point from osteoporosis) and doc think I have osteoporosis in my upper back. A year later and I am feeling great. My hips and ribs are also no longer hurting which I attributed to old age!

I had extreme lower back pain before being diagnosed, when I was at my sickest.  Every time I ate gluten (altho didn't know it was the prob at the time) I had back pain so bad I wanted to cry.  It could very well be a symptom of glutening.

Thank y'all so much! I had a bad attack over the weekend and carried over to today. Saw my PCP this evening. She is scheduling CT abdomen with contrast, repeat EGD, colonoscopy with biopsy. The only thing I've ever had done was labs and EGD. Every time I have an attack bad low back pain accompanies. The seat Warner's in my car are awesome! Otherwise I just deal with it. I'm concerned about cross contaminating...I am new and this is a hard adjustment for me...still learning.

I have had low back pain and stomach pain for over a month now. Also no appetite. I have been gluten free for almost 2 weeks. Shouldn't I be feeling much better by now?

Patience! It takes time to heal!

I know you feel bad. I felt a bit better by six weeks to notice a difference. It has been a year and a half and I finally starting to feel really good.

Hang in there!
