I went on a gluten free diet some months ago. What a difference. I went into remission. Then I had an injection for my painful knee (chicken kome) two days ago and that started me up again with the big D. I am so upset. I had know idea that that would start me up again.

Any ideas?

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Hopefully the effect will wear off in a few days. If not, you may have to look for another food sensitivity that you need to avoid in addition to gluten. In the meantime, a bland, limited diet should help.

to expand on what tex mentions above, for quite a few people here once they remove gluten, they see good improvement and then whammo, the WD returns, majority find out that there is another food item (like Dairy, and/or Soy, and/or Eggs, etc) that has become the major trigger.

sadly this is a common part of the healing journey...

it is also the reminder that MC is for life, we can calm it, minimise symptoms etc and even have pathology proof that it is 'in remission' then something like a major stressful event, a major illness, bacteria/or virus etc and issues return.

Hi All!
I agree with Gabeís that MC is a for life condition. Iíve been doing great since 2013. Off gluten, dairy, tuna, beef, etc. have done beautifully after taking budesonide and following my diet. Then this past December I took 2 ibuprofen for a migraine headache. I havenít taken ibuprofen since I was told that itís frequent use is what caused my CC. Now, I am back to being in pain. Left lower quadrant pain...right in my colon. Not having diarrhea...but Iím very uncomfortable and have low grade fever. *Ugh*. I just donít want to go to the Dr. However, if it doesnít let up I will have to go. Anyone have any home remedies for this type of pain?

Thanks!

Hi Trish,

Do you have diverticulosis? There's a possibility that the pain is associated with a diverticulitis flare-up. The association with MC is in the type of inflammation with diverticulitis ó it's the same as the inflammation associated with MC, namely lymphocytic infiltration into the epithelia of the colon. Hopefully the pain will pass soon, but as you know, sometimes a diverticulitis event can get out of hand and require medical intervention. It may or may not trigger a full MC flare.

Hopefully it will settle down down soon as the inflammation caused by the ibuprofin fades away.

Hi Wayne,
You have an excellent point. I have wondered if diverticulitis could be an issue with those of us with MC. I am closely monitoring my symptoms and Iím hoping I wonít need to seek MD care a this point! However I will do so should I remain in this state!

I think I have forgotten about having MC! Itís good information to know that I must continue to be vigilant when symptoms occur.

Thanks again!
Trish

Yes, diverticulitis was a regular problem for me early on, and it caused symptoms such as chills and fever sometimes, but after I changed my diet (gluten, dairy, soy, and corn-free), I don't recall having any more diverticulitis symptoms )(such as chills and fever) even though I was still having some MC symptoms until I reached remission.

It appears that we are still at risk of all the common problems that "ordinary" people have to deal with, unfortunately.

You're very welcome.

Wayne
