Howdy friends,

 

I'm working through a probable glutening as I type.  Although I have been fortunate not to have gotten glutened too often in the past 8 months I've been gluten-free, I have noticed that it takes anywhere from 6-12 hours for me to register any sort of symptom.

 

As far as I can tell, my metabolism is a bit sluggish -- always has been.  I know some of you can tell very quickly when you've been glutened; does anyone else get an unpleasant surprise much, much later???

 

Thanks, and eat clean!

Cathy

Within minutes, I get indigestion and a few hours later I feel as though I have a "rock" in my stomach.  Then within 6 - 12 hours, I can get a headache, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, body aches, fatigue that lasts for a week.  Ugh!  I've also started to experience extreme itching on my forearm, but no rash.  Applying an ice pack seems to help.  I'll even wake up scratching.  That's a new symptom that has lasted longer than the week of being ill.

Some people react very quickly and for some it can be a few days.  Effects from gluten can also last for weeks.  I don't know of any correlation between metabolism and time of symptoms.  

 

Hope you feel better soon.

In about 10 - 20 minutes I am in the restroom with severe pain and the big D. All I can say is the restroom better be close when it hits me!! Then I get all shaky and my energy is sucked right outta me!!

Takes about 2 hours to hit me.  When it does, I just have to fall asleep immediately.  I literally cannot stay awake.  It's very dangerous if I'm driving.  Usually the big D doesn't hit me until the  next day.

From the one 'glutening' experience I have had since diagnosis it took well over 12 hours for me to have the obvious effects (I get D and stomach cramps).

I'll usually start feeling odd within a few hours, but I can't tell if it was actually a glutening (as opposed to accidental soy/dairy, or just something that didn't agree with me) until the next day, but sometime you think you're in the clear and then it hits you 2 or 3 days later.

 

Everyone will have different reactions over a different time period.

Hope you feel better soon!

Same with me. I get so drowsy I can't keep my eyes open. The pain is mild the first day but it seems to really hit me the next day. Then a day or two later I get a rash on my stomach. Yep good times :-/
