Yesterday I was in a rush all day. Hubbs and I had a big plan for dinner and it just didn't pan out. So he ended out having a pizza thing we have had in the freezer , I had a Gluten Free Pizza in the other Freezer. I took one or two bites of mine and pitched it!! It was disgusting!! So it was getting late so I ate a banana then a lil later  I had some gluten-free, Corn Chips. Well I woke up about 4 am with the worst gut ache!! It felt like someone punched me in the gut. Lucky for me it was "Just Gas" lol but now this is the second time this has happened to me!! The 1st time I don't know what I ate. I do know I am not used to eating prepackaged foods. So maby that was it? Maby all the salt that was in it? What would make me get so bloated and full of gas? OMG it was so painful!! Then in a couple hrs I was fine! :) Thank goodness!! I will not eat anymore Corn chips or a bite of another frozen gluten-free pizza!! Thats for sure!! Maby just a fluke? Sure was weird!!

It may have been a delayed reaction from the Taco Bell that you recently ate. For some of us our reactions can be delayed by days so it isn't always the last thing we ate that we are reacting to.

You may not be able to handle processed food for now.  I tried a bar once and found no need to try that again!  Sometimes even things that don't list gluten are cross contaminated.  Be happy with what you can cook at home is my motto!

Ohhhh Ok really ? I understand about the processed food. But b4 gluten-free It would just hit me like a rock! Hmm Well either way I guess that won't happen again!! I should of just eaten a banana and been done! Maby had another banana. I will learn! Sometime! Generally I don't eat processed foods. Or very often anyway. Only because b4 going gluten-free I knew processed was bothering me. I didn't know it was Gluten.  Maby I am healing so it didn't hit me like a rock? Anyway well I am glad it didn't go thru me like usual thats for sure. Thanks!! And really I didn't even put the TAco Bell experience into the equation. I always think the night b4. I guess I need to think beyond that. Altho I have been really really careful lately. Trying anyway ^_^

When I first went gluten free (for about 4-5 months) a little corn didn't bother me.  Fresh local corn was good.  But too much other corn products bothered me.  Bananas give me a lot of the Celiac symptoms.  I'm not saying that bananas have gluten - its just a food I know I have never had good luck with. 

 

Eating at Taco Bell makes me wonder where else you might be eating?  Maybe you should cut that stuff out for a few months and give your gut a chance to heal?

Yes KarenG Usually it is a restaurant that I get a salad from. And I usually order a salad that just doesn't come with croutons. And of course the dressing on the side. This is actually the 1st time I had went to a fast food in months. Well unless I get a pop. So yea I don't think I have been Glutening myself from eating out. I thought I was being good by checking. but Oopsi! I won't do it again... I have been trying to take care of myself!! I didn't know about the banana's I have been putting them in my smoothies, but not all the time. I have been pretty gassy also but nothing like the other night. And the corn chips were the Gluten Free Frito's ...Like I said I don't eat that stuff.. But I did because I thought they were all Gluten free .... gluten-free doesn't always mean safe I guess... I will watch the banana's Thanks for the tip.

A salad isn't always safe in some places.

 

I did not mean to say that you need to watch bananas! In fact most of that answer isn't what I said.  I just tried to show that there are other foods that sometimes can cause the same "symptoms" in some people!

 

I think about all I can say right now, as this is getting frustrating for me,  is - Use some common sense!

Fritos chips didn't sit well with me.  So I don't eat them anymore.  You might like Mission brand chips as an alternative.  If you think the pizza might be a problem, keep the ingredient list and review it next time you have an issue.  See if there are matches to any of the ingredients.  Also, if it was an Amy's pizza, that might be the problem.  Some people have reported issues with Amy's products in the past.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
