Glutened Or Gastritis Flare?
0

7 posts in this topic

I went on a road trip this past weekend, and had my first ever drink of alcohol on Sunday night. It was Arbor Mist wine, which from my research appeared to be gluten free. I didn't have much, maybe 2, 2 and half little glasses. I didn't really feel the fun part of it, all it did was flare my rosacea and make my brain fog worse and my stomach a little burny. (It was disappointing, really, after all that build up!) I knew it was a bad idea as I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis in December and have been doing so much better lately because I've been babying my stomach, but I'm turning 22 in 4 months and it was bothering me that I'd never tried anything at my age. Anyway, I felt ok the next morning, my stomach felt a little irritated but nothing too bad, and it got better after I ate breakfast. Late afternoon I started feeling weird and out of it the way I had when I was eating gluten, but at the time I figured I was just exhausted. I got home Monday night and felt a little sick after eating dinner. When I woke up Tuesday, I felt TERRIBLE. Weak, shaky limbs, dizziness, brain fog like I haven't had in months, anxiety and strong depressive outbursts, extreme nausea, urgent BMs. I took charcoal pills which I think prevented me from throwing up, and I've been sticking with broth and mashed bananas and easy foods like that. But now I'm not sure what caused it! I packed all of my own food for the road trip, but there were definitely opportunities for me to get glutened. Among other things, the friend I was riding with was eating fried chicken at the wheel and I was not nearly as careful as I could have been, especially towards the end. She also took a drink out of my glass after eating pasta and we shared a bag of grapes after she'd eaten a bagel.

In your opinion, is it possible this is all just due to a gastritis flare up from the wine, or have I been glutened? Or could it a weird, delayed reaction to something in the wine? The mental and shaky symptoms seem odd for just gastritis alone, but I can't really be sure. I haven't really been glutened since going gluten-free so I'm not sure how sensitive I am, or how I react.

 

It really sucks, I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow morning and I have all this on top of it! No good at all.

Eclara,

Prior to my Dx, 7 months ago, drinking two glasses of wine gave me a relaxed " buzz". At present two glasses of wine have no intoxicating effect at all. In fact what follows is a sleepless night and several days of symptoms similar to having ingested gluten. Organic wine and " gluten free " beer have the same effect.

Sounds like glutening from the road trip rather than wine...actually sounds like you may have had a couple glutenings...road trips are great, but do need extra care and a bit of steering wheel/gearshift cleanings if driving is shared with a gluteneater.

Thank you all for the replies! I agree that it was probably the gluten, although the wine probably didn't help with the stomach pain. I guess I've learned my lesson about slacking now! I'm doing a little better today, the drugs from my wisdom tooth extraction are masking most of the other symptoms, so there's a plus! Weirdly, the glutening actually turned out to be a bit of a life saver for me today, as the stomach discomfort made going without food for 12 hours before the extraction much easier and the brain fog (which, among other things, dulls most of my emotions and make things feel unreal) pretty much killed any pre-surgery jitters I would absolutely have had otherwise and made it all go even faster. And now the painkillers have wiped out my muscle pain, so I guess if I was going to get glutened, now was a pretty good time to do it. Especially seeing as I've got the next few days off from life and solid foods anyhow. Killed two birds with one stone, as it were!

 

Thanks again!

Now that's what I call a positive attitude! Never thought there could be a bright(er) side to glutening lol.... Hope you keep feeling better...

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
