Celiac Pain

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed about a month ago. Whenever I eat I get terrible stomach aches. It also happens when I don't seem to eat. I have lost weight and it kills me but I hate the stomach ache when I do eat. I still eat but it's very painful. I know it's supposed to get better with time but what do I do until then? It's affecting my social life and more importantly, my schooling. I have missed so much school because of the stomach aches. Being that it happens multiple times a day, I have been avoiding Tylenol, Advil, things like that. I don't want to take those every day. Does anyone know why this is happening? Has it affected anyone else? What do I do?!?!?!

My pains were muscle/nerve related, so I'm not sure how to advise you, but I'm certain others will have plenty of great tips.

One thing which will help, is if you post the types of foods you are eating. Often times, going gluten-free is not enough at first, and many here have found it necessary to eliminate dairy, and sometimes other things for awhile. Once you are felling better, you can try them one at a time, and see if your system is ready for them.

You are probably very sensitive right now - I have been gluten-free for about a month and I'm having many more good days than bad days. I think there is an adjustment period - and I find I feel better when I eat real simple foods for the first month. Like plain brown rice, hard boiled eggs, lots of fruit and veggies just steamed or raw. Avoid dairy and coffee - I know it was the coffee for me which caused me a lot of pain so I switched to green tea or camomile.

It may take a few weeks before all that gluten is out of your system.

take care....
