I've been gluten free since March, and got glutened by Rice Dream a bit ago which gave me headaches, made me really tired, nauseous and bloated. My main symptoms before going gluten free were bloating and constipation.
Fast forward to this week, and I'm positive I got glutened again but really can't figure out what from. Either it was from cross contamination while visiting at my parents house or something I ate that I cannot figure out. It started on Wednesday, and the only thing I can think of is that I had a few cookies from two new companies, Zena's Cookies and Ginny Bakes, but both are supposed to be gluten free.
I was visiting family out of town this week, and as I was making my 2.5 hour drive back Wednesday, I kept yawning over and over. I thought I was a little tired from helping my brother move the previous day, but as my drive back home continued, not only did I keep yawning but I started feeling really nauseous. I stopped along the side of the road and just sat for a few minutes, and was just hoping I could make it back home without getting really sick in the car. Thankfully I made it back home, but when I got upstairs I went to the bathroom and had massive D. It was completely liquefied, and that NEVER happens. Thursday and Friday I continued to feel nauseous and my stool was still loose, but not completely liquid. My stomach was also quite rumbly, and I'm still a bit bloated and my intestine area is really tender.
I didn't put two and two together until last night because I thought maybe I got food poisoning, but then I started getting bone pain last evening. I had some times of intense bone pain before gluten-free.
So I've determined I got glutened somehow, but I'm not quite sure how it happened. I've read that symptoms can change after going gluten free. I can't tell you the last time I had liquefied D because I always had C. Maybe because Rice Dream was a liquid it didn't give me as intense a reaction, but I think feeling nauseous is an indicator that I've been glutened because I never get nauseous.
It bothers me that I can't figure out what caused it, but I'll have to just let that go and hopefully the lingering effects will go away soon!
