Constant Pressure In Left Side

Recommended Posts

Is it normal to have constant pressure in my left side? When I was having regular attacks, before going gluten free, I would have pain that would start on my left side just under my ribs and eventually radiate across my entire abdomen. Now, I don't have the pain, but I still have constant pressure in my left side. I don't know if there's some gluten I am still getting, if this is just something I have to live with, or if I should be concerned about yet another condition.

Have you ever had a colonoscope done? This could be from diverticulosis which is common with celiacs that have had a lot of C in their past.

Everyone is different but I found when I eliminated soy that this feeling, swelling whatever it was went away. I was concerned also and underwent a scope and an ultrasound, external and internal to check for anything off but the only thing found was the diverticuli (this was actually my second scope and after 5 years gluten-free most of my diverticuli had gone away!) and that my intestines were thickened. The thickening seems to have been from the inflammatory process because I am both allergic and intolerant to the soy. Within a short time after I eliminated soy that pressure feeling was gone. It does come back if I get 'soyed' but not if I am glutened.

That's interesting. I had a colonoscopy done last year looking for diverticulitis and that came back negative, so I'm pretty sure it's not that. But the soy is a good thought. Since going gluten-free, I think I've probably increased soy. I know I went on some vitamins that I had made sure were gluten free, but when I just checked them they had soy. I think I'll try cutting back and see if that helps.

Thank you

How odd! I have the same problem this morning, after having tried to incorporate dairy (yoghurt) last night back into my diet. I used to get this prob fairly regularly. My colonoscopy was all clear. Have you tried eliminating dairy??
