Back and leg pain when i eat corn?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

this is weird cos I can't seem to find anyone else who has this issue. Most of us agree with gluten intolerance it seems. But even I asked my GI specialist and he was like "that doesn't make any sense!"

basically whenever i eat corn or anything that contains corn or corn starch, I get like a small bump on my lower right back and it hurts and the outside of the calf muscle on my right feels tight and hurts really bad as well. I've read that corn can be inflammatory and I guess its one of those things I just need to avoid as well as gluten. It sucks cos I only recently been gluten free which alone is hard as hell and most gluten alternatives seem to have corn, so now its going to be twice as hard!

Anyone else experience this?

Some celiacs can't tolerate corn, and it is considered a separate intolerance. You might want to look into food sensitivity testing, which Alcat (one of our site sponsors), does.

Some celiacs, like myself, have temporary intolerances to foods, which go away after 1-2 years on a gluten-free diet. I could not tolerate corn for about two years after going gluten-free.

Also, corn intolerance was just discussed in this thread:
