rnb2114 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithFoods To Eat After Being Glutened?I was glutened several times in the past month, so symptom-wise, I'm pretty much back to where I was six months ago when I was diagnosed. The problem is that no matter what I eat, I have the same problem -- stomach rumbling (in an uncomfortable way, not to mention audible), bloating, discomfort, intense nausea/pain at times, and gas. Everything I'm eating is gluten free - either it's specifically marked so or it's fruit. I just had two tangerines and my stomach is going crazy. What's going on? What should I be eating when I'm glutened? Is citrus too harsh on my stomach?
I also got a pro-biotic yesterday that I thought would make my stomach pains go away. Maybe that's causing something weird?
Thanks in advance for your advice!

rnb2114 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Finals Week W/ Celiac: Help!Hi there! I'm new here, and I am excited to find people who really understand what I'm going through.
I've been gluten-free since January...sort of. Since March I've accidentally had gluten as much as once a week -- I just keep messing up! I have had problems with depression, anxiety, and ADHD long before I had any celiac symptoms, but they got unbearable when I got sick. Things started to get better on the gluten-free diet -- I was finally feeling hopeful. But now I'm in finals week at an Ivy League college and I'm melting. I can't stay awake, focus, or remember anything. I can't get my work done and I'm embarrassed about going to my professors because I should have told them about celiac long ago. I'm worried I'm going to fail, and I can't stop crying! It feels kind of like pulling multiple all-nighters. My friends think I'm being a drama queen. Even my sorority sisters with celiac (there are 4 celiacs in my chapter!) don't really get it because they've been gluten-free for so long -- they act like I'm making too big a deal about it.
Anyone have any ideas about how to get through the week? I take Wellbutrin daily and Ativan as needed (hopefully these are gluten-free -- I looked up all the ingredients online and they seemed fine), but it's not enough to overcome the evil celiac symptoms. Just 6 more days until I'm home...but I feel like I won't make it!
