I had that burning sensation after I got the H. Pylori bacteria, which causes stomach ulcers. So I might have had a small ulcer or at least some sensitive areas in my stomch, which the HP bacteria damaged. A stool test diagnosed that bacteria. I took mastic gum capsules and turkey rhubarb tincture to kill the HP and used L-glutamine (powder dissolved in water) to heal my stomach. The burning sensation disappeared after a few weeks of treatment.

I get a burning pain like that when I eat soy or as part of my glutening process. It's usually one of the first symptoms for me. I thought I had h. pylori for a bit, but it wore off after a couple days after eating gluten. And it only comes then. It's definitely something you should pay attention to, though.

your GI couldnt help u? what do these doctors do anyways?? do they ever have answers? sorry i digress...

i had the burning months ago- and because of $$ & not wanting antibiotics i went ahead and treated myself as if it were H.Pylori... i took 3 doses of GSE (15 drops in 8oz water) for 3 weeks, & some Pepto Bismol... it cleared up. if it didnt get better i was gonna go to the doc. just to make sure it didnt progress to a bleeding ulcer.

**BUT- stabbing pain- you need to make sure that's nothing serious- maybe find a different GI... it could be harmless like a psoas muscle spasm- or it could be serious-

just remember- we're not docs here- make sure u get the proper care

I agree that 'we're not docs here'. Did you see a doc about your burning stomach pain? What did you use to kill the H. Pylori bacteri? (What's GSE?) Mastic gum is an antibacterial botanical which has absolutely no side effects. (I took it for 5 weeks and felt nothing beyond improved stomach.) It's been used for years in the Middle East to treat stomach problems.

i want to buy some of that Mastic Gum- sounds great.

GSE is Grapefruit Seed Extract- very bitter, but supposedly can kill almost any bacteria, virus, microbe, candida, etc.

i LOVE the stuff-

the burning stopped, AND my sinusitis got 90% better. but i only did the 3 doses for a month. ive had GERD a few times, and my sinuses have started to be inflamed again... so im not sure if i killed it all off.?

i only have catastrophic insurance... so dont feel like going to doc all the time. have to see my GI soon tho- so i'll let him know what was goin on, see what he thinks.

He really couldn't think of ANYTHING that causes left lower quadrant pain?!

Um, how about diverticulitis? That's a pretty common disorder that causes left lower quad pain. :rolleyes:

Have you been scoped?

OMG, I have the same burning..! It's in the upper stomach..not located in one spot. It feels like my whole upper stomach is burning. I got a blood test for H pylori and it came back negative. Either it's old age or it's gluten intolerance. The last time I went gluten free, I was getting acid reflux and painful pressure but not burning.

I'm going to go gluten and grain free for awhile and see if the burning goes away.

My ND thought I had bacterial overgrowth that wasn't pylori. My mother had pylori. She told me her symptom and it wasn't like mine. Her symptom was burning but in a single spot on the side of her stomach.

Could it be an ulcer? I had a flare about 5 weeks ago and my new GI was not taking it seriously. Severe abdominal pain and more recently severe vertical pain under my rib bone. My old GI thought my Celiac had gone undiagnosed for a long time and wanted me to have a capsule endoscopy as soon as I got a new GI. I had to really push him to get it. I had it on Monday and he called me yesterday. Totally different demeanor and no longer dismissive. They found an ulcer. I have to have it biopsied. That won't be for another three weeks because I live in a small town now and he needs a special anesthesiologist (my old hometown had a large hospital).

I was newly diagnosed in June after being bedridden for 6 weeks. Loved my old GP ant the GI he referred me to. The test results were given to me literally the night before we moved to a new state. After following the gluten-free diet I felt better for a while. I took my son to the new GI to get genetically tested before college (phew - he's negative, one less thing to blame mom for).

I'm currently unemployed and a resource geek so if anyone ever wants me to look anything up just let me know. This forum has helped me more than I can say. Being sick in a new state is challenging and thanks to all of you I don't feel so alone.

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
