Slight Burning On Left Side Just Below Rib Cage

Had this burning sensation yesterday just below the rib cage on left side that lasted a few hours and then disappeared. Also aching in the lower back. Can this be associated with celiac?

As for the lower back pain......before I was diagnosed with celiacs, I was having a lot of pain in the lower left side of my back. I thought it was age, lack of exercise, repeated small injuries et. Anyhow when I went though the testing and had to give up dairy, soy and gluten the pain went away. I really didn't think about it. Through all the accidental glutenings the pain did not come back.

Some celiacs heal and are able to have dairy again. A couple days ago I decided to try a little velveta cheese to see if it bothered me. It did. 36 hours latter I had a GI response and the pain in the lower left side of my back came back. Feels like my hip is out but it's not. I worked through it yesterday but today I'm laying up with a heating pad and drinking coconut milk and fruit smoothies to get fluids and easy to digest nutrients into my intestines.

So my current experience tells me that yes the pain you are feeling may very well be a response to what you are eating.

Hope this helps, RA

hi,

I dont think these symptoms connected to celiac disease.. But anyway you consult a doctor.. Burning sensation and back pain may be due to pressure in that particular area.... You can go for Ice therapy i.e apply a cold compress, such as ice or a bag of frozen peas, wrapped in a towel. Don't apply ice directly to your skin because you could damage it. I can also suggest you about irehab.com where back pain relief program is given that helps you to strengthen the muscles around that particular area..Hope this help you..

I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease and I to have a burning pain below my left ribs. It feels like a bruise when I touch it but there is no bruise there, I have had it for several months and it comes and goes!! Whether it is related or not though I am unsure.

I had a biopsy on monday. I also had the burning sensation around that area and they found duodenal ulcers. Maybe you can look into that.

Do you still have that pain? I have that too. I started gluten-free 9/1 and the pain had pretty much gone away, but in the last couple weeks I have been noticing it again. It's not disabling or anything, but a nuisance.

I had it exactly like this, too, with gluten. However, mine really got bad after a surgery when I was given medicine that had 'bad' things for me in it. So they did ultrasounds of the area, checked for kidney infection, worried that perhaps I had internal bleeding or something.

Everything looked totally normal, even though the pain was very bad. But when I stay off gluten and other bad foods, it goes away. Comes back if I get the bad stuff, always in that spot. No idea what it is, but I've had it too!
