Bloating was always a gluten symptom of mine.  My belly swells huge, almost looks like a pregnant belly.  I've been accidentally glutened on Friday.  I'm making my way through my symptoms and eating naturally gluten free food, etc.  But my belly is still bloating after eating and it is Monday.  I don't remember if the bloating went away immediately after I stopped eating gluten before.  My question is does anyone else experience this when they've been glutened, where they continue to bloat after eating for a while even though the subsequent meals are not gluten foods?

 

Thank you.

I definitely bloat quite a bit when I get glutened - my family also says that I look pregnant...  After this happens and I lay on my belly, it feels like I'm laying on rocks and its terribly uncomfortable.  Your intestines need time to calm down and decrease the swelling after being glutened, so I'm not surprised that you're still experiencing the bloated symptoms.  Mine lasts for about a week or so, but it eventually goes down - drink a lot of water and don't drink anything too cold, it is irritating to the gut.  Feel better!!

I bloat like that, sometimes for up to 2 weeks after getting glutened. In addition to lots of water. I've found that taking a ginger extract (about 30-40 liquid drops in a glass of water a few times a day) is helpful for reducing the bloat.  I started taking it on the recommendation of my doctor, who told me that ginger acts as an anti-inflammatory in the intestines.  You can get the extract at Whole Foods or similar stores - and you could probably make a tea by boiling fresh ginger that would have the same effect.  Ginger teas from bags don't help me nearly as much, but you could also try those.

Yep mine lasts approximately 2 weeks. Its not painful, but its definitely there and gradually starts coming down after a week.

 

As with my other symptoms this one seems to last for longer, the longer I go without gluten.

My bloating always lasts for at least a week, sometimes two.
