Glutening Dreams
0

7 posts in this topic

I thought this would be a pretty funny topic. Has anyone had any bad dreams about glutening yourself? I've had a few, and they crack me up the next day. I've had this same dream about pizza and cupcakes:

 

I happily take several bites of food.

Put food down on the table.

Look at food.

Eyes go wide with realization.

"Dear god, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?!"

 

End of dream, lol.

 

:)

I had pretty much the same dream only it was a whole wheat bun.  I took a bite, chewed and swallowed, then realized it was something I shouldn't be eating.  I had that dream about 3 years after going gluten free.

I have been gluten free for 6 years, but there are still some foods that I miss dearly. So.... when I occasionally have trouble going to sleet at night I pretend someone developed a shot that would let me eat anything at all for one day. Then I start lining up the foods I want in order of consumption. Baklava (sp) is always first! Soon I go to sleep and have food dreams.

I had a dream right before I started the gluten challenge, that my cousin was at a restaurant and ordered $1000 in bread. I'm not kidding, I was watching her from my dream and she sat at a table with one of our other cousins and another friend and as the server arrived to ask what they would like to order, she looked at the server and said "$1000 in bread, $1000 in meat and $1000 in salads". There is more to the story of course, but it was just weird.

I have these dreams, but they end up more being nightmares with me trying toget the food I've eaten out of my mouth. Then I wake up and have to figure out if I really ate something I shouldn't have. I've been gluten free for 4 years, and the dreams happen about every six months or so.

I had another one last night. I ate some junkie mac and cheese and said, "Well, now let's time how long my reaction takes to kick in."

 

I don't know what my reaction time is. I've considered glutening myself to find out, but then I think it's silly to make myself feel miserable for a week. Much better things to do with my time.

 

Funny that I still have these after being 2.5 years gluten-free.

Just last night...I dreamt that I made a PB&J sandwich on normal bread...looked at it, then threw it in the trash.  I think this is a result of me having been glutened a week or so ago, and reacting TERRIBLY to it!  Made me laugh though...the things that stick in our minds!

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
