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.

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      You should read the book' Jennifer's Way" you might find her story similar.  You will find better health- but be patient- it's an up and down road and takes a long time! For me it's been 7-8 months and I'm not well but slowly improving I hope
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot

      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.
