So, I am starting to have this crazy stomach pain again...

I get hungry, I eat, then my stomach feels like it's burning. Then I feel like I need to eat again to make it feel better... my stomach feels good for only a short amount of time. Grrr... :angry:

I wouldn't have even thought of this, but my friend has been treated for H Pylori and her symptoms were very similar to mine.

I know that an active H.pylori infection is pretty common among Celiacs, so I'm just wondering if some of you could share your symptoms. I'm trying to determine if I should try to move up my GI appt that is scheduled for Nov 11.

And no... I have not ingested gluten accidentally. These are foods that didn't bother me before. Yesterday, even water hurt my stomach. <_<

Hi,

If you are in that much pain, I would definitely try to move up your GI appointment. I had an h.pylori infection 3 years ago that caused 5 stomach ulcers- nothing to mess with! The symptoms you're describing certainly sound to me like they could indicate some investigating is necessary by a GI.

Feel better soon,

Debbie

Aww.. thanks Momma G! :rolleyes:

I called their office a few minutes ago and left a message with the nurse. So, now it's hurry up and wait.

Hi Lizard, I have had h-pylori and it isn't fun, so I feel for you pain. My symptoms were awful, raw upper GI pain, chest pain. Sometimes if I ate or drank something it was like acid in my stomach or chest. Lived on Pepto for years, pre celiac diagnosis. Went to my doc and he mentioned maybe h-pylori and I was like what else can I have because they never mentioned celiac. Well low and behold they did a blood test and my panel came back positive for the h-pylori, (at the time, I did not know I had celiac and neither did they, I was just diagnosed 3 years this December). I took the prev-pack of antibiotics and within a couple of weeks I was better. Ironically my sister who always thought of me as a hypochondriac pre celiac was just diagnosed about 3 moths ago with h-pylori. If you can't get in with your GI sooner, maybe your primary doc can order your the blood test for h-pylori. Good Luck

Try taking some mastic gum. It may help you as it is reported to kill H. Pylori (before taking this though, make sure you get tested first because it can cause a false negative). Nexium is great and Carafate is also really good too. Protonix is the worst...

BTW, if I am severely glutened this can happen. Only if I ate a whole 16 inch pizza or something though!!!

Hey! I had an H.pylori infection back when I was in college. It felt like normal acid reflux times ten! I had really bad chest pain. I took the prev pack and that got it all cleared up. I would definately move my apt up. My chest pain got so bad that I had to go the the ER and then they gave me one of those yucky green shots that numb your insides. Best of luck! Hope you feel better soon!

Yes, this weird stuff with misunderstanding hunger cues is a really big one for me when my stomach is queasy or upset. At first, food helps, then I feel like crap again. I had the H. pylori test and treatment (the antibiotics are horrible), and did feel a lot better, but couldn't stand the meds to complete the 21 day trial. Most ulcers are caused by H. pylori, which you probably already know.

Good luck!

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.
