Flare Up?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed just over a year ago with a positive biopsy and have been gluten-free since. Before I was diagnosed I had been to the ER for unrelenting pain on my right side kind of right under my rib cage. The pain lasted like 2 weeks and just couldn't take it anymore. Finally when I was diagnosed the pains went away. I am now having this pain again. It hasn't been this severe since last year when I was in the ER. The pain is constant and almost hurts to take a deep breath and even swallow. I have been going over and over my diet and can't figure out what triggered this very familiar pain. I have been under some extra stress at work and wondering if that was enough to just set it off. Normally if I accidentally get a little gluten I get mild pains and know right away and it goes away usually in a day. I'm just so confused about this sudden "flare up"

Something is going on, definitely. Gall bladder maybe? Have you eaten more fats and oils recently? If it doesn't ease up, seems like you should talk to your doc about it. Don't assume it's gluten related, as it may or may not be. I hope you feel better quickly and find the cause for your pain.
