Relieving Stomach Pain

I was curious if other people have found relief when accidentally glutened - I get pretty severe abdominal pain and an upset stomach - has anyone found an over the counter remedy that alleviates pain after the damage has been done?

Not really, but I do take a daily supplement of acidophilus and if I suddenly feel I'm having issues I take a second supplement at the end of the day and it seems to help it all pass quicker

I use Maalox to stop the severe cramping. It doesn't help with other gi issues, but the cramping eases. Sometimes it takes 2 doses. - I keep a bottle at work. :-)

What always helps me is a heat pack. the hotter the better, it really relaxes all the muscles and makes the cramps so much less painful.

Not sure if this would help, but I've read that sometimes, anti-inflammatory foods can help, a little. Fish oil, things high in omega fatty acids, olive oil, pumpkin seeds, vitamin e supplements. Nightshades, and foods high in dairy and sugar, seem to have the opposite effect (you can google anti-inflammatory foods and find all sorts of info. on-line. Just have to wade through it to find the reliable information)

My husband has pretty bad allergies, and was told by his doctor that anything that involves inflammation as part of the 'reaction' can be helped by these types of foods. My hubby started taking these, and it made a huge difference. I've been wondering if it might work for me if I got glutened, ya know?

That said...don't know if it would work for us celiac folk, as we can't really digest well once we've been glutened. But hey, probably wouldn't hurt, yes?

I was curious if other people have found relief when accidentally glutened - I get pretty severe abdominal pain and an upset stomach - has anyone found an over the counter remedy that alleviates pain after the damage has been done?

Sometimes I get stomach cramps and pain and I use Roliads (one of the mint kinds) and if it is really bad I use heat.It helps relax the muscles. Sometimes I get a really hot shower.

I take a really hot bath and relax in it for about 20 minutes... the pain is usually gone or at least tolerable. I use Tylenol and Simethicone to help relieve the gas pains.

I take pepto bismal liquid, name brand, for the pain. I do not medicate the D at all.

Thank God Im not alone! Im newer to this whole gluten thing and notice if I eat something I shouldnt it doesnt hit me right away. I get the rash 2-4 days after, feel like theres a cinder block in my belly for a few days, then maybe at about a week or so later the real pain starts! The abdominal shooting pain is almost unbearable. You think you have to go to the bathroom but not much happens just waves of shooting pain and sweats. Is this similar to anyone else?? Does it take that long to get it out of your system? Ive really had a hard time adjusting to all this. Its depressing to not be able to have all my favorite foods and eating out is a nightmare, yet a big part of my social life. It seems no matter how vigilant you are theres ALWAYS SOMETHING that knocks you off track. UGH. :(

I use an herbal supplement of Quercitin and Bromelain. It can be found at natural foods stores. I get severe pain that feels like a toothache in my upper stomach and back. The herbal supplement mentioned above helps with the pain and healing. Sometimes I have a really bad reaction and it doesn't work as well for the pain then. I also take Tylenol but am afraid to take ibuprofen because of the warnings about stomach bleeding. I figure if I have ulcers already it may not be a good idea.

i wonder what would happen if you drink banking soda. I notice no one brought that up. Baking soda does wonders and has since the 30s. Its used all over the world. Note one reality. the only people dealing with this, and Acid reflux and other intestinal issues, is the usa, and countries that have went all in using Coke products with fake sugar, and all the other products using High fructose.

@themicmic baking soda makes you burp a lot but does not relieve pain or bloating, I originally assumed it was another attached k of my heartburn but it didn't help i have tried ranitidine, baking soda, every antacid and nothing. I can't find anything goes to help immediate pain until my new insurance starts up so I can see a doc but everything I have read about this fits perfect

Gluten Aid from CVS or Walgreens

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
