I've been gluten-free for about 3 months now.. but I've had one reoccurring symptom that is really hard to explain and no one ever knows what I'm talking about. The only way I can explain it is to say that my insides just feel dry. This feeling usually causes my lower left side to hurt. Has anyone else ever experienced anything similar to this?

Hi cynicaltomorrow,

I too have pain in lower left side that eminates through to my back area, although doctors cannot explain reason for it...the best explanation being the area of pain in the body is not always the source.. ie: it could be coming from somewhere else....strange I know but I'm not a doc.

Aye Yours

BS ;)

Big Scott: Regarding your back pain....did your doctor check your pancreas? Sometimes when this organ isn't working right, you'll get back aches as you describe.

Hmm, this would seem to go right along with the Sjogren's possibility that another poster had mentioned.

Stuff like this could also point toward Systematic Candidas. Lupus and Scleroderma would be other possibilities among those w/ shortness of breath and are experiencing these symptoms like Raynaud's.

Thanks for the reply, red! I was concerned about the bacteria, so I've been taking ProBiotics. I've been feeling so much better! I can even eat dairy now.

    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.  
    • A gluten free multi won't hurt but it would be better to call your doctor and get them to give you a lab slip for a vitamin and mineral panel. At the least get your iron levels checked before you supplement as that can be toxic over time in large doses.  May not be the case for you but when I went gluten free I started eating a lot more soy. Turns out I am sensitive to it and it gives me issues similiar to yours. Some of us do have issues with other foods. Dairy, soy and corn are pretty common. If you consume any you could try eliminating them and see if things improve. If when you add them back into your diet your symptoms return then drop them again until you have been very well healed.
