Extreme swelling in lower abdomen/upper groin post grain binge...Help?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Help! On the weekend, I succumed to social pressures in the most horrible way and went on a major binge. I had a chicken quesadilla one night, and a couple pieces of french toast in attempt to remedy my hangover the next day. (For background information- I have been eating fairly paleo for the past few months with the occasional chocolate bar or treat on the side) Since the morning after the quesadilla, I've been incredibly swollen/bloated in my abdomen and now it's descended into my groin area. Needless to say, it's not very comfortable.

I just wanted to see if anyone here had any similar experiences? (If not, I may consult my doctor since the bloating doesn't seem to be going down much)

Thanks!

Go the doctor right away if genitals are swollen! I have never ever heard of gluten causing something like this. Swelling usually=infection.

It's both the genitals and groin muscles, which makes me think that it may be unrelated, but I wanted to see if anyone had to heard of gluten causing this before calling my doctor.

When you say groin, do you mean the actual groin muscles at the very top of your legs or are you talking genitalia too? There are a ton of glands around there that could be infected if there is swelling and pain.

More specifically, I'm worried that the swelling has decended into my groin region because I have never heard of this happening as a result of gluten consumption. Anyone heard of this happening

I have celiac. When I get glutened, low abdomen is where the pain hits -- celiac, recall, is an intestinal problem. It can be pretty sharp and awful for a day or two.

When I first went lowcarb (before paleo was super popular and I had never heard of it), I was very very strict low carb for about 8 months. THen I went to a party and there was cake and I cracked under pressure and totally pigged out on multiple pieces of chocolate cake. Some time later, I got the WORST intestinal probs I ever had and could not stray too far from the bathroom for several days. I could have eaten that cake and been fine before the lowcarb, but after 8 months of not eating sugar nor grains nor starches, my system simply could not deal well with a giant hoard of cake. The probs passed after a few days though and I was fine.

Now on paleo, I am actually a bit more relaxed about eating. I eat some fruit and once in a while, I'll eat a bite of cake and I'm fine later. Balance and moderation may be the key. Now I cheat in tiny increments once in a while. Whereas before it was a situation of supremene strictness punctuated by a massive binge! -Eva
