Corn gives me the same symptoms as being glutened.  Really ticks me off b/c it's in every single processed food in this country.  With that said, I need some corn free pain reliever.  How would I get a RX for this so I could get it filled at a compounding pharmacy.  I asked my gastro's nurse and she said take Tylenol...it's a small amount of corn..........yeah......um...ok..tell this to my gut and my migraine.


Anyone know?

I went to the free clinic and explained my problem to the doctor there. (I couldn't see paying for a $100 plus office visit just so I could get a prescription.) Not only did he write me a 'script, but I found the only doctor I would ever trust by doing so. He spent over an hour with me, and I found out he does that with every patient! He's the one who accepted MY diagnosis of celiac, based on results from the diet plus family history. He's also the one who sent me to his nutritionist (at his regular practice) and told her to go easy on me because I was broke. I can't even remember now, but I THINK that after spending 2 1/2 hours with me, she charged ten bucks. I gave her twenty and felt guilty about it, but I really was broke at the time, and so grateful to have found these people.


Do NOT take regular Tylenol!! It will only make your pain worse. If your gastro's nurse refused, you should insist on talking to the doctor himself. If he won't do it, maybe you can try another doctor - your GP, or even check out a free clinic near you.

Can you take aspirin? (I can't. :( ) But I just googled Alka-Seltzer and found this: http://www.alkaseltzer.com/asp/products/allergySinusHeadache_lg.html

It lists the active ingredients, and then if you scroll down the page you'll see the inactive ingredients. It looks safe to me. It's funny though, I didn't see regular old Alka-Seltzer on their website. But even if you have to take this stuff, it'll help with your pain.

Could you get something at a health food store for pain?  I don't use pain stuff myself but I think they should have something there and it might even be corn free.

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. If you are religious would you pls say a prayer for me? I'm pretty scared and about at my lowest.  I wouldn't normally ask on here, I guess I'm just scared. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
