  1. I am new to the gluten free diet, and still trying to figure out exactly what is wrong with me. I have started a gluten free diet as a trial, and after going completely gluten free for two weeks I accidentally ingested some gluten in a rotisserie chicken. I had the same throat problem as you! I thought I was crazy! It felt like I had something stuck in my throat. And my stomach got really distended like I was 3 months pregnant, cramped like crazy, and I thought for sure I was going to throw up. It's reassuring to read that I am not the only one going through this
  2. My blood work only lists IgG and IgA. It doesn't break those tests down the way you did. I will ask my doctor about it. I have been gluten free for 16 days now, and have felt better than I have in years. But my symptoms have started to recur after eating the publix chicken(see above post). Not sure if it is gluten or something else. It's been over 48 hours and I'm still not feeling well. Had an ultra sound of my abdomen today to rule out other problems. I see my dr next week, so hopefully I will get some answers.
  3. Gluten Free Disney?

    Wow! That is such a relief! I was worried I might accidentally have gluten and spend the trip miserable
  4. Gluten Free Disney?

    We are planning to take our daughter to Disney next month. I am new to the gluten free diet, and I'm wondering how difficult it will be to travel to a place like Disney. Any tips or suggestions?
  5. Thanks so much for your replies. My husband and daughter ate the chicken and were fine. The one I ate was the barbecue flavor, and it definitely has gluten. There are autoimmune issues in my family-my mother has 7 different ones, and I'm wondering if she has celiac but doesn't know it. My daughter has stomach problems and eczema, and I'm wondering if she might have an allergy as well. The tests I had done were the IgG IgA. Are there others tests I should do? I know having gone gluten free will alter any biopsies I may need, but I am desperate for relief!
  6. I am in the same boat as you. I have had all kinds of symptoms that made getting through the day difficult. All my blood work has come back perfect, yet going gluten free has made all the difference. I feel like a new person! I tried the diet on my own without having any biopsies, but am scared to go back to gluten. I recently had a small amount of gluten accidentally, and paid severely for it.
  7. Hi, I am new to the gluten free diet. I tested negative for celiac in a blood test, but all of my symptoms disappeared once I went gluten free. Last night I ate a publix rotisserie chicken, and within an hour I hade aphthos ulcers on my throat, I was nauseous, my stomach was cramping, and I was gassy. My doctor thinks that the chicken was bad, but I think it was the gluten. It's been 24 hours, and I'm still not right. Could I have celiac?
