Recommended Posts

i have no idea whats wrong with me.

i have so much pain (like a stabbing pain) in my lower left abdomen area.

i ate nothing for dinner. i had salad, and some mint chip ice cream.

what could be wrong with me?!


- gluten free since August 2007

- endoscopy came back negative for celiac in December 2007

- bloodwork confirms egg allergy

- allergy testing confirms only banana, apple, melon, egg and environmental allergies

i get hives anywhere on my waist down and less bloating/constipation when i do not eat wheat.

Do you have someone with you or can you call someone? A lot of people here use a heating pad for comfort. Drink lots of water.

I'm just wondering if it's making your back hurt, too...and like you want to curl up in a small ball? I've been having a TON of lower left ab pain lately, too. I'm going to get tested in one month. A few months ago I had that pain, spread to my back. I thought I had an ovary cyst...ended up going in immediately. After the ultra sounds, NOTHING. Hmmm??? Celiac?

Gall stones usually attack right after dinner, and hurt like nothing else


Cara - 42, mom to dd 15, ds 12, ds 4

Off gluten and dairy (and tapioca ;-( ) since 11/07

A.L.C.A.T. test showed over 50 sensitive foods

Celiac panel came back negative.

Regular allergy testing reacted to every inhalant and all but 6 foods.

Slowly adding in foods, started w 19 and now have 25

A friend of mine had a perforated ulcer. It appeared to subside while resting, but increased with motion.

Whatever it is, I hope you feel better soon. And don't hesitate to seek medical advise if you feel the pain is getting worse.

I would eliminate the dairy for a little while. Also raw veggies can be very hard on a compromised system. For the first few months gluten-free a salad with lettuce would make me feel really awful. I hope you feel better soon and as much as we don't like to have other things taken away it may be needed until you heal a bit more.

It sounds like you needed some comfort food are there any other comfort food type things that you could choose, something like maybe a bowl of buckwheat cereal with cinnamon or a baked apple? I make gluten-free banana muffins and keep them in the freezer for those times when I just don't want to cook and need something warm and tasty.

If your pain continues or gets worse don't hesitiate to call your doctor, if you have a fever or are feeling nauseous or you start to get a cold sweat get to the ER. Severe left sided pain can be indicitive of diverticulitis which might need medical intervention. This would be particularly true if you had a colonoscope that showed diverticuli on the exam.
