Was Accidently Glutened Yesterday. What Do I Need To Do?
0

2 posts in this topic

I haven't been diagnosed with gluten tolerance but I'm 99.99% sure I have it. I have been through life up till 19 always fatigued, add symptoms, joint pain, anxiety, stress headaches. 

 

The doctor just said all of this is stress related, but I said there is no way.

 

I started a gluten free diet on my own and a week later all of my symptoms diminished, I was amazed, I have felt energy that I have never had before, I can actually concentrate on things and not have anxiety for no reason.

 

1 month later I decided to try wheat bread just to make sure I'm right, and what do you know that night my stomach was making all these weird noises and the next day I was completely tired, this happened for another day or so.

 

Went off gluten again and everything was great again.

 

This time I was at a party for the 4th and decided to try to eat things I know don't have gluten in them, I said if the third time I have these symptoms that's it for eating out, I am not going to eat anything unless it is something I have fixed, it just isn't worth the risk anymore.

 

So yesterday I must have ate something that was cross contaminated, after eating my heart was racing, just felt irritated, lips began to get sticky, eyes dry and such.

 

Now today I'm in a brain fog and have digestion issues.

 

 

My question is today I'm going to a pretty big even with my family and I don't want to be tired or in this brain fog.

 

I have started drinking a lot of water, doing push ups and core exercises.

 

Should I take one of my ritalin pills that I was prescribed for ADD? It does wake me up and gets me out of the brain fog while under the effects of the drug.

I don't know of any quick cure for getting '"glutened".  Drink lots of water like you're doing.  For food intolerance issues my doc used to recommend Alka Setzer Gold which is just plain sodium bicarbonate and convenient for carrying around (or use baking soda) with plenty of water.  Haven't tried it for gluten though.

    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do. 
    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!
