icelandgirl posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseOne of the things that sent me to the doctor in search of answers was a constant pain on my left side in the lower ribs. It's there all the time. 13 days Gluten-Free and it's still there. I go to bed with a heating pad on it every night. Does or has anyone else had it? Is it related to celiac? Does it get better?
Matt.tilley posted a topic in Celiac Disease Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHi everyone. I'll try to be quick with the background because seemingly its the same for most people. But here goes. 2 months ago i had a stitch like pain in my left abdomen under left ribs, sort of spleen area, like a balloon was under there. and i was bloated. I had mild constipation (this day i had eaten a pizza, toast and a cake) it persisted, i went to doctor. had an array of blood tests all negative, including celiacs, doctor said mabe ibs, i then saw another doctor after a month of similar discomfort, she said seemed like gluten is a problem for me after analysing my food diary. I went gluten free for 2 weeks and felt better, however after every meal i could still physically feel something under my ribs, top of my colon, spleen stomach, muscle (no idea) but it is there. however no cramps, stitchs and bloating less. I then one week ago had a sandwich as i was in a rush and i felt terrible all day, huge bloating constipation for the first time in months, cramps. So it seems gluten is a problem for me. BUT... does anyone have the same symptoms as me? are they consistant in Gluten senstivity? what is it i can feel when im bloated? it isnt pain its just there.if you stand up and breathe in filling your abdomen on there is something tangible that follows the angle of the rib cage down,protruding a little out further than them and when i eat i feel this even when im not breathing in. is it my spleen? my transverse colon? muscles that are normal but when im bloated they are pressed against like when i breathe in? i would really appreciate any advice, i feel a little alone, the doctors don't seem very knowledgeable on this subject. btw I am fit and healthy, 29 years old from UK, im 5ft 10inches tall and 70kg , i eat healthily also. Thank you so much everyone look forward to your opinions. Thanks Matt
