New Stomach Pains :(
0

10 posts in this topic

9 days ago I started getting new and different stomach pains , the pain is almost like my stomach is being pinched and it reallys really tight and quite hard. Also last week I started getting back pains pretty much the same pain that has started in my stomach ( and possibly pain in the kidneys ). Than on friday I noticed the colour of my stools became very dark and and than a different colour over the weekend . Than since yesterday I have been burping lots.

I have been to see my GP doctor and he said I need to go back to my Gastro but that's gonna be a few weeks I think . I also did a urine test at the doctors it's been sent to the lab because of traces of protein .

But i'm kinda worried what's going on , I did wonder because of the stool colour changes if maybe I had some kind of stomach infection but I have no D or fever or anything . I just been reading about stomach ulcer's can cause stomach and back pains ( Also seem to be having ulcer's in my mouth lately) . My pains seem quite bad at night in both the stomach and back and it's very difficult to get to sleep but once i'm alseep the pain doesn't wake me up . And when I wake up in the morning the pain is not bad but gets bad as the day goes on and than i'm just getting the stomach or back pain for almost most of the day .

Just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem , or might know what's going on ?

Thanks

David ( Tennisman)

Could be gallbladder? If it's low functioning it can cause those symptoms. An ultrasound will show if you have stones, but you would need a HIDA scan to guage the level of function you have.

It also sounds like gastritis..but the cause is the big question. I developed it myself and don't know why.

Get your gallbladder when you go to the other doctor checked.

As long as your poo isn't white (sign of colon cancer) or black (sign of bleeding in upper intestine) you're okay.

I will ask my doctor to do the gallbladder tests .

My last Endoscopy in late 2010 showed mild gastritis the doctor said all Celiac's have some gastritis not sure if that is right though . Does gastritis cause you problems or have you found a way to treat the symptoms ?

Thanks

I will ask my doctor about the gallbladder .

It was very very dark brown I don't think it was black. Than at the weekend it was very dark green , online it says green could be an infection ?

Thanks

If the green isn't constant, what did you eat? Thats probably what did it. For example, eating too many blueberries can cause it to go really dark or eating to much spinage can cause it to go green.

Gastritis just started for me in August. I've been gluten-free for 15 mos. I've also taken soy, dairy, peanuts, refined sugar, corn, most fruits, and tomatoes/peppers out of my diet. No relief yet...and no known cause.

I don't think I ate anything that could have caused it , but I did drink lime squash just by itself I'm not sure if that could have caused it .

Sorry to hear that , hopefully you can find a way to fix the problem soon . Does Gastritis cause back pain as well ?

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
