I know this question has probably been asked on numerous occasions, but am always curious to hear others response, as I continue to have persistent upper abdominal pain frequently radiating into my back that the docs all seem to link to my celiac, although, they are now questioning my gallbladder as being a coexisting issue. But with all that being said, how long did it take for folks to get rid of their abdominal pain after going gluten free? Mine seems to be relentless for 2 plus months now, never with a break, of a constant gnawing pain in upper abdomen slightly on the right as well with cramping/aching in my mid back, with currently no other symptoms.

I guess looking for some help as usual

And as always, thanks in advance for all the advice, I think it helps alot more to hear from patients who experience it, rather than a doctors textbook.

Hi there, this is a really good question! I am dealing with this right now. Before you get any gallbladder surgery perhaps try and treat for congested liver. I have had this pain on and off for years but have it worse now as have kicked coffee out of my diet. Coffee was acting as my 'bitters' which in herbal/TCM terms help the flow of bile. Bea/Yolo on here suggested Dandelion, which I have tried and is awesome at getting things to flow. It is quite drying so I would suggest using it with a moistening herb - probably something like Licorice. Herbs take a while to work so start slowly and tweak to see if this makes a difference. What I do is take the dandelion root in tea form - powdered from a capsule is safest (must be the root) about 30 mins before eating. After eating I sit reclined in a chair and then after a while I start to feel the bile flowing and the pain under the right rib cage and to my right shoulder starts to dissappear! I guess it will take a while of treating to get things back to the way they should be. Celiacs probably have thickened bile because of the excess toxins and leaky gut allowing toxins and bile back to the liver in quantities that are higher than normal.

Hope you get some other suggestions too - there are some extremely knowledgeable people on here!

I would get that pain until I eliminated soy. Pepto Bismal would help with that for me.

If you haven't considered either dairy (casien) or soy as a possible issue you may want to eliminate them and see if it helps.

Cramping aching in the mid-back sounds like spleen. Have you seen an acupuncturist? They may be able to help!

I've been having the gb-like pain in my upper right quadrant for months. It was one of my strongest symptoms before being DXed. I got a tingling sensation in my right shoulder blade quite often too, after eating. My Dr. said the pain and tingling in my back was most likely caused by my gb irritating a nerve that runs through that area. My issures haven't resolved yet. I've been gluten-free for about 3.5 months.

I've heard a lot of people with Celiac have gallbladder issues. If you can tolerate it just wait it out and see if it resolves on the gluten-free diet?

There's also a gall bladder friendly diet you could try?

I tried the beet sald recipe and I found it pretty tasty.
