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.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
