I am new to the forums. It was suggested to me to try a gluten free diet in the summer or 2012, and I have been (trying) to maintain. I've, unfortunately, moved away from a large city and to a tiny town without a lot of options. This, with a new (and very supportive) boyfriend, I've accidentally ingested gluten around five times. I'm getting familiar with the pattern of symptoms, although timing hasn't been well-established. I was wondering if any other gluten intolerant (I've never been tested for Celiac) people have similar problems...
Around 10-15? minutes after the first bite -I'm a slow eater, so I usually notice mid-meal- I get weird pains. My jaw starts to hurt and makes me feel like it has locked up, and I get mild chest pain near my armpit. I've also noticed the occasional pain in my back, under my ribs and not far from the shoulder blades. As time goes on, maybe a half hour later, I have horrible bloating and mild nausea. I also get a slight cotton-mouth feeling and the migraines and leg pain usually start later that night/day. Other, more usual, symptoms carry on for the next day or so, but those are my initial issues.
Has anyone experienced these random pains at the onset? I have read a lot of information online about symptoms and reactions but I cannot find instances that I can relate to this. If anyone has more info, please let me know.
