Something To Ease The Pain And Discomfort?

8 posts in this topic

Is there anything to ease the pain and discomfort of the cramping and spasms?

I was diagnosed with Celiac earlier this year and have done quite well on the gluten-free Diet. Recently somehow I was "glutened" and am in the throws of some pretty intense cramping and bowel cleansing.Has to be something to help relax the intense spasms.

Also, will this cause me to have to start all over again, or is it just a setback?

Thanks.

Imodium. God created Imodium for a reason. :)

My friend always takes CeliaAct. I've yet to try it, but as soon as she realizes she's been glutened, she takes it. Swears by it, really.

Lots of Pepto Bismol and aspirin. Charcoal capsules may help too. And plenty of water.

I don't know about over the counter meds but my GI gave me a script for Bentyl. It works wonders with the spasms when I get glutened or accidentally ingest dairy. Just a thought for the future.
