My Worst Glutening

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))))

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
