Lower Back Pain

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have wondered if anyone has exsperianced lower back pain along with bloating, it seems like when I have eaten gluten foods that cause bloating , I also have a severe lower back ache, when I was super strict and ate only gluten free, the back ache went away.

Oh yes indeed! Ugly low back pain. :(

Severe pelvic pain throughout.

(I have major joint/bone/muscle pain from celiac but it is LESS

since being gluten-free.)

Count me in too. Had serious low back pain, more so on the right side. Eating bananas and taking magnesium (500 mg) really helped.

Yep. I have a couple of degenerating discs that present ongoing issues. Interestingly, when I went gluten-free, my back pain lessened. Totally was not expecting that, since I knew there was a clear cause for the pain. Nevertheless, I could sleep on my stomach again, which I hadn't been able to do even after spinal injections and PT. Now it seems there's a pretty clear connection between the times when it flares up and gluten exposure. I get headaches and GI stuff first, then the back and the other joints jump in on the second day.

Wow. Thank you for posting this topic. I, too, get joint and muscle pain (and fibromyalgia flares) from eating gluten, but never connected the low back pain into the mix. I have degenerating discs in my lumbar and cervical spine. Of course getting glutened would make that pain worse. Duh! (gentle head smack!) :lol: I will pay attention now to that connection. Yet one more reason to be even more careful.

I also have the fibromyalgia flares, and till you said it, I would never have linked it with the gluten ! Thanks,

I've had pain up and down my back for about 8 years. Lower back pain is the worst. I also have GI problems associated with this. Tried chiropractic, had 5 epidurals, mobic, accupuncture. I've been through it all. I've been off gluten for 3 days now and I'm really feeling a lot better. I hope it lasts. Needs some relief. So tired of being in pain.

Yes and it feels like my internal organs are petrified into rocks.

Good luck and read the labels - even when it says gluten-free!

Best of luck,

Cali

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
