Tender Abdominal Area After Being Glutened?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone ever get a tender lower tummy, like in the lower abdominal area, after being glutened? Is it from gas or something? I wonder what i should take...or maybe i should wait a couple of days to see how long it lasts... <_< ... This has happened many times before but i accidentally glutened myself on thursday so i'm pretty sure it's from that, however, i ate lots of ener-g bread and english muffins yesterday so maybe it's from that? Oh, i'm so tired of being a food spy :ph34r: .

Yes, I get tender, bloated, gassy and very uncomfortable and full-feeling. Also, if you are backed up at all, that could contribute (I know most of us mostly get diarrhea, but I do occasionally also get constipation too, which always makes my tummy tender).


*Gluten free since 7/06

*Cutting down on soy and dairy since 9/06

Yes, typical for me as well. A tenderness is a good way to put it. I think that the inflammation caused by the gluten reaction will cause that. Then 2-3 day of mild constipation.

My tummy gets veeery tender when I get glutened (which I did yesterday, so I'm all grumpy).

My abdomen has ALWAYS been so tender, for most of my life I couldn't wear a belt properly. I always felt sick. After going gluten-free that has not been the case.

Ryan (my hubby) also seems to have this symptom. I'm not sure what it is, but I hate it!

Dear IrishKelly,

Yep I get that way. I get really bloated, too. The pain in my colon is usually really bad. It seems to be gas. I also get unbearable acid reflux if I have been glutened.

Sincerely,

My lower tummy gets very tender when I get glutened. Usually, I will end up unbuttoning my pants during the day! It get so tender that even walking hurts (the pounding of my feet vibrating up to the belly)...

Hope you feel better soon..I know it stinks :(

The pain or tenderness is the illium. It's a small pocket at the end of the small intestine. When we get gluten it allows food to pass in larger particles than normal and gets caught up in the illium. So you are very tender until this breaks down and moves on.

I am 4 weeks from the glutening and my belly still is tender. The D just went away for the first time in four weeks and now I am constipated. Go figure.
