I need an anti inflammatory gluten free brand. Or something like Tylenol. I am in pain and do not want to take heavy prescriptions. Anyone know what is gluten-free and if and how bad they are for digestion. Advil, Aleve, motrin or Tylenol. I know the NSAID's are the advil and aleve what do people prefer most. I know there are some of you out there with joint and bone pain.

Some of Target's generics for Tylenol, Advil and Aleve are labeled gluten free.

Jherm21,

I just posted a similar question in another forum topic that might answer some of your questions.

I realized now this might be the better thread for the topic but since I was seeking the research on the BP medicine Losartan I posted it there instead.

In short NSAIDs as well as some other medicines have been associated with GI issues.

Here is a good overview of  the NSAIDs question form the DailyMail.

I hope this is helpful.

I take Aleve or the generic that I get at Wegmans. I haven't had any issues with it and only need to take one for relief. I should note that it is not something I take on a daily basis. I usually only need it a couple times a month.

Is Aleve better than ibuprofen? My back pain doesn't budge with 800 mg Motrin.

It works much better for me but everyone is different.  I have a physical job and sometimes get lower back pain. A hot shower and an Aleve will usually relieve it. It's worth your giving it a try.

Maybe you should have your back checked by a doctor, if the pain is constant and is not improving.  You could be developing another AI issue like Ankylosing Spondylitis.  At least consider trying to find the cause (compressions fractures, slipped disk, whatever).

Oh, I did.... was referred to pt which hasn't helped at all. My muscles are super tight and they supposedly are causing the back pain. No idea what originally caused the problem but it started a couple years ago and has just gotten worse.

I wish you lived near here, I have the greatest massage therapist she does Swedish style, She can loosen up the stressed tight muscles wonderfully, I am prone to getting knots in my shoulders and neck, so I have to have them worked out once a month otherwise they start to limit mobility and hurt.

    • I was thinking about it this morning and I was thinking it does almost seem like I somehow had some gluten.  I just can't think from what though.  But I lost 2 pounds the past few days and that is what seems to happen when I get glutened - I ge the bad stomach issues, but also lose a few pounds quickly.  When I react to other things, like possibly corn, I don't get nearly as severe in the stomach issues, and I also don't lose any weight.  That is a great idea to make a soup and just have that for a few days.  I was going to try and make things that on my food journal were all around some days I was feeling better, but soup sounds good.  Do you have any that seem more gentle on your stomach?   I am thinking maybe just a veggie one with carrots, potatoes, green beans, spinach or kale. I do usually add a small can of tomato sauce, but maybe this time I better not.  Or a homemade chicken soup with some rice maybe. 
    • Please if you do cook bacon or fish in your microwave leave a generous tip for the maid.  He/she will have to spend quite a bit of time getting the smell and grease out for the next guest.  Can you guess what my present occupation is?
    • Are primary care physicians under-testing for celiac disease in patients with iron deficiency anemia? A new survey of primary care doctors indicates that they are. It's fairly common for people with celiac disease to develop iron deficiency anemia (IDA), but researchers don't know much about the frequency with which primary care physicians test for celiac disease in patients with IDA. A team of researchers recently set out to describe how primary care doctors approach testing for celiac disease in asymptomatic patients with IDA. View the full article
    • I wanted to update since we had her appointment this morning. I am forever grateful to a local friend that has UC and spent a long time looking at her case and armed me with incredible information. I shocked him at every turn and it felt so good! We started the appointment with it's most likely Crohn's and ended with 75/25 to 60/40 it is UC and Celiac. I am clinging to that hope perhaps too much. He was supportive of the gluten-free diet change and my desire not to do steroids and start as "small" as possible. He does still want her on a 5-ASA drug. Our next step is also to get an MRI which will give us a better picture. He was impressed I knew about the promethius assay test and impressed that I knew UC usually starts in rectum and works its way up BUT there are some exceptions though rare that will not have disease all the way and will have an area of healthy tissue. Bottom line he leans toward Crohn's because (1) there are 2 spots in colon with no active colitis and (2) a part of the small intestine has something "mild" going on. I am praying we are going to be one of those exceptions!
    • My sister and I are both Celiac. We had differing symptoms. Her stomach got way worse than mine. Have you noticed that often products will be gluten free, soy free and dairy free? This is because for some unknown reason, that there is a connection between those three. Presumably, the gluten has ruined the intestines to the point that soy and dairy are hard to digest or process. So I'm thinking that perhaps that gluten exposure temporarily aggravated your dairy tolerance. My sister had to eliminate dairy and soy, after 5 years she can happily add dairy again, but soy is evil - google it, especially soy and stomach enzymes, yikes!
