Corn Sensitivity And Pain Relief
0

10 posts in this topic

I am as sensitive to corn as I am gluten. With that said, I was glutened by cc almost 2 weeks ago. I still have gas, pain and some bloating etc. I took Pepto a few times and some Motrin for the pain. I know that they have corn in them but I needed some relief! Now I am left with digestive issues and severe joint pain in my hands and cold sores from the corn reaction.

What can we take for pain when we just have to have something?

There is corn in everything!

Before I realized that I am intolerant to aspirin I found BC Aspirin Powder. It worked really well for pain until it made me even sicker. :blink: It was the ONLY pain reliever I found that didn't contain either gluten or corn.

I wound up having to get a prescription for Tylenol made at a compounding pharmacy. $35 for 200 capsules, and believe me, they are well worth it!

On cornallergens.com, she says that Aleve is corn free. I haven't looked recently to see if that's still the case, and I'm not sure how long she's had that information up, but it might be worth a look, anyway.

But they warn that because they also process gluten, it may be cross contaminated.

I am going to have to check into this. Thanks. I wonder if there is anything homeopathic that we can use?!

I just wanted to say that I tried Aleve which is corn free and I had no reactions to it at all.

Thanks for that info! I am almost out of my specially made Tylenol. Although I only tried Aleve once, long before any food intolerances hit and it didn't do much for my headache, I will try it again. Tylenol never did much for me either so what difference would it make? I WISH I could get ibuprophen, but it is too close to aspirin which I react to badly.

I did have some DH problems but it's def. not corn or gluten related from the Aleve or I would be having bad intestinal problems. If you react to sals, you might get some DH flare up's from it. I really react with skin eruptions from sals.

I was in pretty bad pain so I took it twice over a few days. Sometimes we have to pick our battles ya know! Aleve took care of my pain in about 20 min and it's been gone since last night but this afternoon I noticed some DH flaring on my face. You should be good to go as far as corn goes though.

I got ibuprofen from a compounding pharmacy because I needed something I could take for headaches when CCd without making things worse. Well worth it. I've always had a kind of iffy relationship with aleve, so have been avoiding it, especially after reading the warnings that it may contain gluten.

    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course. 
    • Good for you! One suggestion, if you run into another reaction like your Endo, try and ask a question which puts the burden of proof on them, ie: 'Given the positive blood test, on what clinical basis are you excluding celiac?' At least it forces them to be more precise and perhaps exposes any flaws in their reasoning. Although if you reach that stage with a doctor it's probably worth looking for another... If I were a cynic I'd say your Endo had already metaphorically left the building when they were analysing your tests.Your primary seems more on the ball though Best of luck! If and when you go gluten free come back here and there will be plenty of support for you.
    • Great Image JMG.   Thanks for the feedback. I think I feel that the decision to push for further tests, and not shrug it off is the direction I want to go. And I think I may try the diet post-endoscopy, and see if I respond (particularly if my thyroid responds to the diet).  Thank you All!
