Left Side Pain
0

11 posts in this topic

I have continual left side pain that runs from under my ribs to my hip. I do notice it gets worse if I have been glutened but I really don't understand why I have it all the time. Does anyone have this at all?

Also does anyone know if drinking alcohol makes this worse or does any extra damage? I have had to quiet drinking altogether because I noticed I was feeling drunk after only 2 drinks and the pain got worse on my left side and I was sick for weeks after.

Has anyone also tried Amberen for perimenopause or menopause? I have been thinking about giving it a try but wanted some input if anyone has any.

Thanks Everyone!

Whoa baby, alcohol just isn't worth it for me, anymore.

I can't have more than 1 drink (like going from 0 to 100 mph in two seconds), and it messes with my blood sugar...and doesn't taste the same....

I use natural progesterone cream for hormonal issues, and tried very low dose progenolone/dha for a few months...which worked GREAT, btw.

I've just diagnosed myself with gluten intolerance, but I did have an issue about four years ago with severe pain on my left side. At the time, I was in such pain that I wasn't drinking, so I'm sure that had nothing to do with it. The more I read in these posts, the more symptoms I'm linking to gluten intolerance.

i have the pain a lot too- mostly on the left side... also from under the ribs down the hip... but i also have muscular pain/issues too... my diaphraghm, iliopsoas, and mostly every muscle in my trunk is WHACKED from being a massage therapist and gasping for air from my thyroid breathing issues.

sometimes im not sure tho if the pain is starting from my muscles and then pinching my intestines... or if the pain is starting from my Descending colon, and then referring to my muscles... its BEYOND ANNOYING & TOTALLY INTERFERES WITH MY QUALITY OF LIFE..

i wonder too if it is a seperate issue from being glutened???? i only say this- cause when i DO get glutened, i get a specific pain where my small intestine is....

i wish it would go away ... :(((

hope others have some helpful suggestions

It took a while to figure out my cause of pain... I was taking HYOSCYAMINE SUL 0.125 MG for Spasms till I figured out that dairy was causing the pain...

Thank you all for your input, it has helped me alot. I don't drink anymore because it just isnt worth the pain. I am going to make a doctors appt and get checked out and also talk about the natural way for hormone replacement.

Thanks again everyone!

Hi Kiki! I just thought I'd add my 2 cents real quick. If what you were drinking was beer, or whiskey, or bourbon, that will most definately trigger the pain. All those drinks contain wheat and or barley or rye. I've had to kiss my fav booze goodbye. Anything that is in the rum vodka or tequila familys, in moderation should be ok. Also I've noticed that early in my dealing w/ Celiac I am experiencing lactose intolerance as well, so anything w/ milk is not advised either, at least not much. Good luck! :)

pain in my left rib cage is the first sign for me that i have been glutened. headache follows (step two and confirmation that i have, indeed, been glutened) i drink, but only beer (redbridge) as even wine knocks me on my a$$.....

I had pain on my left side constantly for years before going gluten free. It comes back when I eat gluten. I'd even get a hard knot on the left side of my abdomen if I wasn't regular with BM's. All alcohol except tequila makes me sick; I guess because tequila is derived from Agave.

I get that type of pain when I have been glutened and when I get constipated (which for me is the major problem I have when I have dairy).

    • i usually buy pre made falafels as the majority i've found are gluten free and vegan. they are really good on a wrap with hummus, lettuce, tomato/salads or even the same on a sandwich. i also eat them with a salad or as a side with a curry. the only recipe i've made from scratch is from http://www.hotforfoodblog.com/recipes/2015/05/04/baked-falafel-sliders-with-maple-tahini-sauce also their cheese sauce is really great, i make it with sweet potato and almond milk, its so easy and you can swap or leave out a few ingredients and it tastes just a good. i eat cheese but i still make that to have with tacos or nachos as well.
    • Hello thanks for answering , yes they did a biopsy , received the results and can't understand a thing in medical terms . Is the waiting that is irritating me . 😒  There was written among other things that the villus architecture is well preserved is this only sentence that confuses me . I will ask of course my doctor just wondered if any of you knows what it means . As for celiac blood work panel I will ask . I Know that they did some blood tests which I had to wait two weeks as here some blood tests they have to make them outside our island .
    • Hi  I live in the US. we use Corn flour and amaranth flour to make roti. There is any other flour to make roti. bcoz amaranth is a little expensive for us. and being punjabi we eat roti a lot and parantha too. so if anyone knows in US. from where we can get flour to make roti on cheap price. or any other website from where we could get all flour on good price.
    • Well, I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor (maybe an endo if your PCP is not thyroid savvy, but I have always used my PCP).   Are you sure you had the hypo-related thyroid antibodies tests (3 of them)?     It looks like you are hypothyroid.  You probably need thyroid replacement, but I am not a doctor!    Thyroid replacement will help you feel better.  My TSH is best at around a 1.  Anything over a 5 and I am wearing flannel PJ's and napping.  Ask for a physical examination for your thyroid to check for nodules and enlargement too.  You can be hypo, but not have Hashi's.  Get that endo appointment, if you can.    
    • On a gluten-free diet, my low iron resolved within months with supplementation.    I would ask your doctor to re-check your ferritin levels and antibodies at the three month mark since you can not judge by symptoms.  I would also ask for a bone scan.  I fractured two vertebrae doing NOTHING two months into my celiac disease diagnosis.  Found out I had osteoporosis.   I would think that if you were dairy intolerant, you would experience all the classic symptoms of gas, bloating, etc.  If you are not, I would not worry about dairy.  Not all celiacs are dairy intolerant.   Go eat some cheese!   Follow-up testing recommendations: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
