  1. Many thanks for ur response. Yeah it makes sense that it would take a while to heal. I found out only yesterday that my favourite crisps have gluten in them and Iv been eating them for the past 6 months. Mistakes obviously do happen but hopefully I can get a hang of this diet soon! If anybody else can share there experiences with pain below the ribs and the time taken to heal it would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi guys. Iv been doing a bit of research, and I seem to read regularly that I should have seen a significant improvement within 6-8 weeks of going gluten free. Just wondering if what I am experiencing above is normal, as it’s been 12 weeks now, or if I should push for an earlier appt as I’m not really seeing any major improvement?
  3. Many thanks for your responses. I’m maybe a bit premature in expecting my pain to of gone away. Fingers crossed it clears up soon though!
  4. I was diagnosed with celiac disease around 5 years ago. I never really followed the diet as my symptoms were never too bad. Around 5 months ago I developed a pain below my rib cage. It is either on the left or the right hand side, it seems to very daily. I got referred to a GI doctor who done an ultrasound and an endoscopy and decided he thought it was my celiac that was causing my pain. I instantly started falling a gluten-free diet and have been for 3 months. I would say that my symptoms have got ever so slightly better but I still have the pain below my ribs daily. I’m starting to get a bit worried as it’s been 3 months now and I’m still not pain free. I’m not due to go back for a follow up appt for another 2 months. Do you think the doc could’ve got my diagnosis wrong or is this a normal amount of time for your insides to heal? I’m very aware I must’ve caused a lot af damage with not following the diet for 5 years, but I thought if the pain was celiac related then I would have healed by now. Any advice would be great fully received.
  5. Many thanks for ur response. Yeah I know it’s hard to diagnose, but just wondered if anyone else had similar pains for so long after going gluten free. It’s really starting to get me down.
  6. I was diagnosed celiac around 5 years ago, but I’ve stupidly never followed the gluten-free diet very closely as I never really experienced any symptoms that were too bad. I’ve been 100% gluten free for 3 months now though. My pain started below the right rib around 5 months ago. It’s like a tight burning pain. Around two months ago it spread to the left side as well. No pain in the middle. The pain is always there but it generally is worse on one side than the other. It’s about a 3 or 4 out of 10 pain. I’ve had ultrasound, endoscopy, liver function test, and h pylori test and all came back clear. I can’t find a relation between food and the pain but excercise seems to make it slightly worse. My bowel movements vary between 1 and 3 times a day and are generally soft but not diarrhoea. Anybody else experienced anything like this or can shed some light on what it is? It’s reakky starting to get me down now. Not sure if it’s related to my celiac or not. And I’m not sure if my insides should have settled down by now with my strict gluten-free eating.
