My Worst Glutening
0

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone! You haven't seen me on here in a while, I hope everyone is doing well. Recovery was going great for me, all my symptoms had completely disappeared for a month! I was doing great! Then I got careless, stupid me. Wednesday before last my best friend and I got together for dinner, it was the third anniversary of the passing of our closet friend. We went to the only restaurant close to me that I would eat at. Marco, has the best salads! I got the same salad I had in the past and garlic fries which I have had also. Since I never go out I had forgot that they serve bread with the salad and they brought it out with two slices of french bread sitting on top of my salad. I should have politely sent it back and asked for a new salad.... did I do that?... NO! My friend ate my bread and I ate my salad which had been contaminated! I felt like poo shortly after and worse the next day, but it was mild compared to the reactions I have had in the past, I was managing it. That Friday (not this past Friday but the one before) My little brother (who I never see) came to visit me on his only day off. I felt special, we hung out for a couple hours (in spite of me still feeling like poo from the CC two nights before). He was hungry and wanted to take me out, we had the convo about my diet, he suggested Quixote (new restaurant in our town) that was supposed to be all gluten free. I agreed to go but explained that I probably wouldn't eat anything. I talked to the owner of this place and he said with confidence that everything but three menu items were gluten-free. I ordered guacamole and chips ( I didn't want to take chances and in my mind that was still a chance) he brought me out carrot soup that I didn't order and said it was on the house... I probed with questions about what was in it, what kind of stock they use, what kind of thickener? He assured me it was safe.... I have felt like my insides are on fire ever since! My back, ribs, stomach, abdomen, hips, legs all are giving me so much pain! This is the sixth day and I still hurt. I'm bloated, nauseous, constipated. The pain is so much worse than I have had from gluten in the past, hands down! I wanted to go to the ER yesterday, I started thinking this can't be from gluten, my organs are rupturing or something horrible of that nature!!! I swear I WILL NEVER EAT OUT AGAIN!!! I doesn't matter how many Q's you ask, no one understands how much CC matters unless you are Celiac or GS. My dad is still under the impression that "a little won't hurt ya!" I wish I knew when this would pass! Before it was a week for me, but it's never been this bad (except when I first found out)and it's over a week already! Pray for me guys....

I'm so sorry to hear this! Maybe you SHOULD go to the ER. It sounds like you might have appendicitis. If this is so much worse than gluten makes you feel it could well be something else. Please, go get checked out and let us know. ((((HUGS))))

    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that

      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure.

      Thanks for the kind responses  Last night I went out and had a black coffee, non decaf.   Big mistake... I started getting gas almost immediately and it went on for the rest of the evening. It seems like anything which might annoy my stomach at the moment results in churning and an uncomfortable feeling. the weird thing is that I ate a huge lunch including gluten-free bread earlier with no effects whatsoever. Just as well as I couldn't face food last night and am not enthused with breakfast now.  C i think I'll dig out some probiotics and try and eat simply for a few days and hope things settle down. I'm just worried that something has changed and this is the new normal... That would suck...  
    • Toblerone
      It's on the safe list here in the uk and I eat it without a problem. theres also a really nice almondy toblerone cake available now.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
