Lower Right Sharp Pain

6 posts in this topic

So, I'm undiagnosed. I've had loose stools for about 8 years, getting procedures done soon. I have a question, normally I have no pain at all. But the other night when I was laying down, I had to get up to go use the rest room and when I did I had a sharp pain in my my lower right area, like my appendix area. It didn't happen again after that. I tried pushing on it to see if maybe there was something going on, but nothing. This was like four nights ago. Then tonight I'm sitting around and if I bend a certain way, or sit a certain way, I get these vague and very unpredictable sharp pains, but they are so mild and go away so fast that I don't know what to think. Do celiacs get pain in this area or is it just people with ibd? And has anyone else had pain in this area?

 When I am accidentally Glutened it is more towards the lower middle. Like a fist sized in my lower gut, so painful I cannot even walk. It stops me right in my tracks. Then subsides after I go to the restroom. Of course always D when I have been Glutened! But it is unbearable pain.

Some celiacs have gall bladder damage which can cause pain.  Pretty sure that's on the lower right below the liver.  Greasy foods may increase the pain if it is gall bladder related.

Gallbladder sits in the upper right of the abdomen, right below the ribcage.

Yea, this is down lower like my appendix area, but I know its not my appendix because I can press on it with no pain.

It can still be your appendix. I didn't have sharp pain when mine was taken out. It was lower pain they poked and prodded and it didn't hurt. I guess the blood test was enuf to tell them It was appendicitis so be careful..... You may want to go see a doc. I also had my Gallbladder out. It is upper right below the ribcage as shadowicewolf said.

    • You only need one positive on the celiac panel.  I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage.   Good luck!  
    • Welcome to the forum.  First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were.  Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy.  Were the doctors gastroenterologists?  Third you need to research  celiac disease.  Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic?  Had your bones checked?  
    • That's good to know about Texas Children's, unfortunately I don't believe they accept our insurance. Our former pediatrician joined with one of their medical groups and we had to find a new one due to insurance. I'll check out their site though.
    • 9 months ago I went to my doctor for normal blood work.  She called me to tell me everything looked great, but o yeah, my gluten sensitivity levels were extremely high.  I should probably stop eating gluten since it looks like I have celiac.  She hung up and I never heard from her again.  I cut out gluten completely, even though I have never experienced one single symptom of celiac.  9 months later, I decided to reach out to another doctor to get a second opinion, as I experienced absolutely zero change on 9 months of strict gluten free diet.  All this doctor did was request the results from the previous doctor, tell me it is confirmed I have celiac, and hung up the phone.  This angers me tremendously on two counts.  One, I have absolutely zero symptoms of celiac, and would NEVER know if I was "glutened".  Two, the complete lack of information or support from both doctors is horrifying to me.  And finally, I simply do not believe the diagnosis and as considering just starting to eat a normal diet again.  I would never know the difference.  I am really just venting because this situation upsets me so much, and I have suffered mentally and socially from going gluten free.  Since I have absolutely zero symptoms, even if I was actually celiac, I highly doubt anything would ever come of it if I continued to eat gluten.  I could just pretend I never heard from either terrible doctor and go on living my life.  Someone has to have been in the same situation as me, right?
    • Texas children's hospital in the med center has a celiac center now.   https://www.texaschildrens.org/departments/celiac-disease-clinic Good luck!
