Hi. I am new here. Haven't written before apart from a reply to someone. I was diagnosed with coeliac disease 4 months ago. I was very ill and off work for 2 months. I had severe pain in my back between shoulder blades. I have had very little pain in the front stomach area but I believe the pain is coming from my stomach but I just feel it in my back. I ended up having my gall bladder removed also. I also have continuing gastritis.
I have followed a gluten free diet for the past 4 months but I still have varying pain in my back. I have gained weight but my diet has to be bland as fruit and veg aggravate my stomach and the pain gets worse. Would be interested to know if anyone else has chronic pain because I am finding it very hard to deal with. I would be grateful for any tips as doctors and consultants just advise pain killers and I am being sent to a pain management clinic. I am also thinking of having tests to see if I have auto-immunity in my stomach. The whole thing is becoming very depressing now. I take acid reducing tabs and painkillers and also tabs for ibs as one doctor said the symptoms could be that. Hope someone out there can help with some advice!!!!
