Hi everyone

I just got back from a competition in st Croix (US virgin island). I went over 2 months without even a slight stomach ache but got a bad stomach ache and IBS the first night there after eating the gluten free pasta dish they served. The water is also suspect so I don't know if I got some bacteria from the water or if I just got glutened. The race (half ironman) did not go well since my gut was not working well- I had to pull out of the race a few miles from the finish.

 

They were serving water filled from tap water at the aid stations and I was told to not drink the tap water (at the hotel). 

 

How can you tell the difference between montezumas revenge and glutening?

To be honest it seems like I got glutened- I had the other symptoms too- brain fog, no energy, IBS etc

I'm sorry it affected your race but congrats on competing! Awesome!

 

I've never problems with water beyond some "D" so I'm not sure which is more likely for you. I would guess it was gluten if you have the same old symptoms.

 

Hope you feel well soon.
