How To Help Dd With The Pain When Glutened?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Dd (5) got glutened today (we think from an ice cream shoppe). Now she's in a lot of pain & is just screaming & throwing up.

Is there anything we can give her to help the pain in her tummy? This is a new symptom for her. Before she would only vomit for hours. Now the pain comes along w/the vomiting. What helps alleviate the pain w/o making it worse for her? Any advice would be helpful!

I never had vomiting as one of my symptoms so not really sure if this will help (sorry):

Before I went gluten free and didn't know why I always got sick after eating....

I would suck on one of those wintergreen life savers or a peppermint altoid (the big one not the small ones -- small ones have gluten in them)..... Something with the mint help ease my stomach. Epson Salt baths helped me or I'd lay on the bed with a heating pad on my stomach. I would drink a lot of water to help flusn out what was bothering me. Sprite or 7 up = help ease stomach discomfort.

Long time ago I had no idea why I would get insainly bad stomach pains and bathroom problems... when the bathroom part stopped I would just be in bed till the pain stopped curled up in a ball.

Hope she feels better.

If this has not stopped by now please call an ER and ask them if there is anything you can do. Do call before you go in, sometimes a nurse can help over the phone. If your doctor can be reached on the weekends and it is continueing call your ped first before the ER, that way if he thinks she should be seen he can call ahead and let them know you are coming and meet you there.

Ginger tea is helpful if she is nauseous.

Peppermint tea can relieve the bloating and relax the intestines. But be careful if the tea is too strong, it can aggravate the stomach too.

Whenever I get glutened I load up on probiotics too.

And make sure she is replacing her fluids/electrolytes.

Good luck.
