Can Symptoms Become More Severe?
Posted 14 April 2013 - 06:13 PM
New to the board and newly diagnosed. My symptoms generally were upset stomach pains and loose bm. Yesterday I had pizza from a well known pizzeria. I ordered gluten free of course, within minutes of eating I started to feel the normal cramps of gluten. Then about an hour later I had an abnormal nausea and broke into hives. I'm assuming the food had some cross contamination.
So my question is simply, can your symptoms change or escalate?

Hello, and welcome to the board.
The simple answer to your question is, Yes, especially if you have been eating gluten free and then ingest gluten once more. This does not happen with people who are not gluten intolerant. The risk of cross-contamination in a pizzeria is quite high alas.
