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

    • Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy? 
    • Hello One drawback is that there are no guarantees. You may go through the testing process and not get the answer you want or need. I did go through testing after having been gluten free and was stunned when I was told it was negative. By that point I'd gone through the challenge and seen various symptoms return so I thought I'd definitely be diagnosed celiac. The consultant advised me to go gluten free anyway and because I'd good evidence to support that I've not had any problems staying on the diet since then. So it can be done, it just requires a certain mind set, essentially I live my life as if the diagnosis was positive. No exceptions.   I think  this is where people make a mistake, if it's 'just' gluten sensitivity' then they can make exceptions on special occasions etc. I think that makes it harder to live gluten free because you still have to make choices and judgments about whether to eat gluten or not. For me, it's never an option so I don't have the conversation. Everyone around me understands that as well. Only you can decide on this. I don't regret doing it because I learned more about my bodies reactions but I found the challenge unpleasant as my reaction to gluten had become more extreme after removing it from my diet. You won't gain much for yourself, the answer is still the same and you already have enough info to know you should never eat gluten again, but your kids may gain if your positive diagnosis keeps them monitored in later life.  Best of luck!  
    • For me personally a medium result, in that situation,  would be enough to convince me that I had celiac disease.  Probably the standard of care is to also get a biopsy. Going gluten free is difficult so some people want to do all the tests they can so they can make the best choice. Generally more testing is thought of as providing better patient care. I think it is a personal preference thing though.   
    • Hi all i hope you can help me i have just had blood tests for celiac and they both come back as a positive result the 1st test was a low reading but the 2nd test was a medium result, i am now waiting a 4 week wait for a endoscopy/biopsy. Not trying to get out of the endoscopy as i have had this procedure before but is it really necessary to have this done when it has been confirmed in the blood tests, i know that they look to see if damage had been done but surely the damage is already been done. Any advice would be great
    • I have been eating dark chocolate bars as well as cocoa powder. Both are highly processed (this is an exception to the no processed food rule) which I am sure removes a lot of the nutrients.  I might try the nibs as I am sure they are more nutritious and they look really good.  I am suspicious of using hemp, for myself,  but it is interesting that chocolate and chilly peppers have some of the same chemicals!  I actually tried chocolate as it has flavinoids which act as a "xanthine oxidase inhibitors".  I have gouty arthritis which is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood. Coffee and an chocolate are thought to help with that. I might react negatively to coffee  though so I am trying chocolate.
