Celiac Disease and Menstruation Question


This question is for the ladies- tune me out guys. I was diagnosed with celiac 3 months ago. I have been eating the right things!!! I am feeling much better even been pain free except when it’s that time of the month. I get the pains- what I call the gremlin in my belly. Anyone have the same issue? What are your thoughts- last month I thought it was cross contamination but now realize it’s a pattern.
Thank you for any advice

  1. Sounds like normal cramps…

  2. Is the pain on your right lower area of stomach. Wanna say in the area where our ovaries are at?

  3. I have pain all over at that time but I think it is not celiac related, I think it is fibromyalgia.

  4. I get similar pain at that time of the month. Personally I think it’s inflammation and it gets worse that time of month

  5. My stomach use rumble so much it was embarrassing. When I quit dairy products & ate ? it calmed down

  6. I’m glad you’re feeling better since being GF! I’m a newbie too. I’m not a doctor, and if you’re having consistent pain—definitely get it checked out. Especially if it’s only around this time of month maybe a OBGYN is a good option? I experience something similar… I have an ovarian cyst that radiates pain on my lower right side.

  7. Same place happens to me usually under extreme stress or inflammation . They almost took out my appendix by mistake but did a last minute ct and rolled me back into the Er. Pre diagnosis .

  8. Same i get really bad cramps 3 years gf

  9. I have this too. It’s also really intense during ovulation. I know it’s hormones for me. My body has an inflammatory reaction to them. I get migraines and the whole deal of inflammatory reactions.
