I have this same type reaction when eating at most restaurants. I ate broiled seafood with lemon juice last night in a restaurant and was feeling bloated, crampy and nauseous within a half hour. Today, I am exhausted, weak and fatigued but still have to work. There is no one to call in to take my place, and I just cannot be out. I am so depressed that it seems I just cannot dine out!
Also wondering if anyone experiences widespread pain and stiffness after being "glutened". Sometimes this lasts for 10 days-2 weeks. Could not function without Ibuprofen every four hours. Anybody else experience this?
I, too, am newly diagnosed. The frustration about what you can/can't eat is definitely a factor. However, I have experienced more emotional ups and downs since I have removed gluten from my diet. Don't understand this.....anyone else experience this? I have been taking meds for clinical depression for over 25 years and have not had problems at all. But since going gluten-free, I have experienced several crying jags.
