New Stomach Pains :(

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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 ?

    • I am worried about the cost but I think having that test done would help me rule things out. Either way I need to see a G.I my issues are getting out of control.
    • Thank you for all the information. I am sorry for the late reply to everyone. I have been feeling worse and worse lately. Got the blood test results, it came back negative. Seeing a G.I specialist in three months (too long for me :/) I've been keeping a food diary and realize I feel worse after eating gluten. After the G.I I want to start the diet. I'm going to call him and see if I can get seen sooner. The bloodwork said theres no signs of inflammation and they don't suspect it to be autoimmune but they want me to do the diet anyway. I wish I had answers because my vision is getting worse, cramping, nerve pain and trips to the bathroom are amplifying. Meh. Also I have a vitamin d deficiency so I am taking d3 2000iu with vitamin b12. Thanks for the help! 
    • I'm sorry you are dealing with this. My son deals with food intolerances that are not identified by any biomarker as well. I hear the same response from doctors in that, "if the food makes him feel bad then it's probably best to avoid the food." (Thanks for your insight doc!) His symptoms are not dermatological though. His symptoms are mostly neurological and psychiatric with some bloating and mild digestive issues. He loses his mind quite literally if he digests gluten. Also develops what is known as a stereotypy, involuntary movement of hands. He is otherwise a normal child. We are unable to obtain any kind of diagnosis though.  I know you're avoiding a lot of foods right now, but don't get discouraged. It's just a way of life and you're doing the right thing. Right now we are avoiding foods such as soy, all types of grain, chocolate, dairy and nightshades. I have limited his iodine intake as well. I have personally found that gluten, iodine and soy cause intensely itchy blisters and joint pain for me. Perhaps have you tried cutting back on iodine intake?
    • It is entirely possible to get a safe meal at an airport.  I always go to the high end places and that makes a difference.  I have no idea what they have at LAX but Legal Seafoods, if they have one there, is ALWAYS safe because they follow strict protocol for Celiac dining. I ate at the Boston one on my Colorado trip in October and it was excellent and I never had a problem.  The menu is limited for gluten-free at an airport but who cares......all I wanted was a safe meal and that is what I got. The baked fish was delicious.  They even had gluten-free cracker crumbs for the topping but that is Legal's...they do good work for the Celiac community.  The manager oversees the meal prep for food allergy folks. In Denver, there was a Wolfgang Puck's for breakfast. They had prepackaged fruit salads which were very good.  I took a leap of faith and asked the server if they could make me a gluten-free omelette, in a separate clean pan and they were very accommodating.  They had an open kitchen so I could watch them make it.  I could not order the other stuff that went with it but the omelette was delicious and I never had a problem. It can be done but you have to be careful. There was a place that advertised gluten-free sandwiches in Denver.  You could see the guy making the sandwiches. I ran from that place because there was bread all over the place and no way could they make that space safe for a Celiac.  A lot of the places had open kitchens so you can watch what they do and that makes a big difference.  Check out the restaurant listings on-line as they are listed. Have a great trip!
    • You are a nice person, Ennis, to do this for Thanksgiving!  If I were in Texas, I would feel safe eating your food and it sounds delicious! To have an allergy safe meal served in a church is a wonderful thing.
