Ingested Gluten For The First Time In 3 Years, By Accident.
0

4 posts in this topic

Two weeks ago I mistakingly ate chicken nuggets that were not gluten free, I noticed they tasted different and read the box and "Wheat" was in the ingredients. I had ate 4 of them. I had no idea what to expect. I went to bed woke up 2 hours later, cold sweat, nauseous, went into bathroom called for my husband passed out on the floor, when I awoke I continued to vomit for 4 hours. I called my GI doctor and the office said this can be a reaction to ingesting gluten. Has any one else had this reaction?

Yes, I have.  I have passed out many times, sometimes on the toilet, sometimes hurling in it :rolleyes: , sometimes if I have listened to my body and the ringing in my ears and dizziness and sweating, while just sitting down or not at all if I could get to lying down.  I always came to, right away; it was just a momentary loss of consciousness.  I was a slow learner, one could say, although I was always told it was all in my head and I should get help for my head -- never for my stomach :lol:   As it turned out my head didn't need any help....  It's been many years now but I still recall it all vividly. :)

I have also had this reaction, but always chalked it up to IBS attacks. Now that I know it is gluten reaction, it makes perfect sense. My GI called that kind of reaction a "vegal nerve" attack. Not sure if I spelled that right. Anyway, it is the main nerve in your nervous system, and it can cause you to black out, vomit, get clammy, etc. Not fun, I know. Hang in there.

Ohhhhhhhh, Yeahhhhhhhhhhh.  This is why I go to great lengths to avoid a hit.  The last time I really thought I wanted to die.  It's a great incentive to stay strictly gluten-free!

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
