Stomach/ Small Intestinal Pain

11 posts in this topic

I have been diagnosed with Celiac for one month now and its been a roller coster of terrible downs and up. I'm doing my best to stay away from gluten but if I eat it by accident I get these terrible stomach aches and my small intestines block up causing no food to pass making me feel like I need to throw it back up. When it finally calms down (it takes a week :[ ) if I eat something like fresh chicken I can feel it move thru out my intestines. Kinda feels like a rock moving slowly. If anyone else has these same problems what do you do to make ur tummy feel better? Is an anti-acid like TUMS (if its gluten-free) worth trying? The only thing that helps me a little bit is Dr. Pepper I dont know why tho.

I drink ginger tea for nausea and indigestion. I avoid antiacids, because they can make indigestion worse by decreasing the acid you need for normal digestion. Unless you have reflux, peppermint tea also helps with intestinal cramping pains.

Hi,

I'm pretty new to this also. And I made the mistake of taking Tums. They're not gluten free so don't try them. I've been on the diet for about two weeks now & I'm slowly feeling better. Two weeks ago, I was having a very full feeling to my stomach & after just two bits of food I felt like I couldn't eat anymore. it was pretty scary since I'm 100lbs & 5'1". I need to eat to gain weight. I also felt nauseous, too. I also felt my food wasn't digesting & it was getting blocked up in my intestines. Just stay away from the gluten. Eating lots of fresh fruits, meats & rice helped me a lot. And drinking fruit juices. I feel like I'm eating better now, so just hang in there. Stick to the diet & check your medicines to make sure they're gluten free, also. Just a crumb of gluten will make you feel sick & slow down the healing process. Things will get better! At least you're not alone & we're all dealing with this. :)

Are those teas herbal teas? Does any1 know if there are supplements to aid in digestion?

I'm not sure about the herbal teas. Since I have so many allergies (like tress & grass) I don't want to try them.

Also, I was thinking about digestive supplements two weeks ago. I asked my nurtruitist (who also has celiac disease) about digestive supplements & he told me to stay away from them. They could make your symptoms worse.

Maybe just try some fresh fruit or a salad.

Before I was diagnosed, my insides seemed to move verrrry slowly. Since my biggest symptom was horrible gas, it was the absence of gas one summer that clued me in: I was eating tons of salads because I had a share in a CSA farm, and everything seemed to move much faster. Even though I was still eating normal amounts of gluten (why wouldn't I, I didn't know any better), the addition of all that roughage seemed to really help my intestinal function and reduce the gas. I thought of it as the bulky lettuce pushing things through so they didn't have time to sit and rot and ferment. It was the closest I got to normal gut function before I went gluten-free. Try a big salad for lunch every day for a week and see if it helps.

Tums' site says all but one variety are gluten-free, and that one *may* have cross-contamination. http://www.tums.com/faq_tums.aspx

Does TUMS contain gluten?

Although we do not use gluten as a filler in TUMS, there may be trace amounts of gluten in TUMS Smoothies Assorted Fruit and Berry Fusion flavors via ingredients that are supplied by outside vendors. Other products of TUMS do not contain gluten.

While searching I did find one thread from 2004 that asserted at that time that Tums were not gluten-free, but it appears they've changed some things since then maybe? Does anyone have information that would be different from what they say on their website?

Dr. Pepper probably helps you because it has a prune base. Some prunes or prune juice wouldn't hurt you, by the way. If you have pain in the stomach, Pepto is gentle and pretty effective. I would stop eating foods that seem like they are backing you up. Later on, when you are more healed, you can reintroduce them and see how they sit. Your system is aggravated right now, and foods that shouldn't bother you, may do so at this point.

Just take it easy on your system for now. Keep lots of safe foods on hand and only pick the ones that "move" along well for you. You didn't get all this damage overnight and you can't heal it that fast either.

A heating pad set on low to medium on your stomach may help also.

Good luck! It's NO fun to feel like that!!!!!! :(

Thanks for clarifing that information for the Tums! I do have the Fruit & Berry Fusion flavor. I guess that's why I had a reaction from them. That's good to know the other products don't contain gluten. Thanks again!

    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
    • Has anyone had an reaction to potatoes? Just made couple bake potatoes 2hrs ago and now I feel awful...just wondering thought potatoes were gluten free🤷🏾‍♂️
    • I recently covered some pizzas when adding some grain free options to the gluten alternative list....I actually found a company that makes gluten-free hot pockets also sorta made me laugh. There are some unique ones out there now days even found one that made low carb crust out of chicken breast and cheese. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
