I Got Glutened...ugh
0

6 posts in this topic

I let a friend cook an extravagant dinner for a group, she knows I have celiac...but something slipped in there obviously.  This was LAST Sunday...as in, the 13th.  It took a few days before I knew what was going on...but then it hit me, and hit me hard.  And still is.  I've been gluten-free for over a year now...this has to be my biggest unknown slip-up, and I'm miserable!  My stomach is making noises it never should.  Food is literally running out of me.  It's been almost 2 weeks...anything I can do to ease the "pain"??  I thought it would be out of my system by now!  Dang food anyway...

I've had a similar experience recently and the only thing that helped me was gluten and wheat free slippery elm (in capsule form). Hope this helps. Good luck. Hope you feel better soon.

i am right there with you - not last saturday, but the saturday before we went out of town and one of the places we ate at (yeah, i broke my own rules - sick of hearing 'we're hungry, where should we eat" so i did the 'find me gluten-free' app (which is actually pretty good on the phone - i thought it was better than the website) and let them pick some places - MISTAAAKKE!)  evidently glutened me.  i am just starting to feel a little better today  :(  this thing is soooo miserable.  my digestive issues weren't as bad as the neuro ones this time.  i am going to take that as i am doing pretty good with healing after 3 years lolz - but - i thought it might go away sooner(it's 14 days for me)  but i am still dragging and staying pretty close to the bathroom :( and bed :( 

 

hard to believe i used to feel like this (or worse!) all the time...  wait it out, be gentle on your insides as far as foods, drink water, for me,. hot showers maybe, i guess mostly time.  feel better soon!  :)

When I have been hit, I double the probiotics for a week  (dose in morning, dose at bedtime) and it knocks down the inflammation

and I drink a lot of water. Take it slow, rest. It's all we can do.

 

Time heals.

 

I eat mostly carby stuff (I know, fattening) but toast with jam  just makes me feel better and then, just ride it out.

 

Sorry, hunny ((HUGS))

Thanks for all the good advice, and support!  I know we all try hard to be super careful...but sometimes it happens!  I really need to get back on a good probiotic...I used to take it religously, but have slacked lately.  Hadn't heard of the slippery elm...I'll look into that too!  I am just sick of having to run to the bathroom 100 times a day...gets old!! :angry:

I've heard papaya extract (papayne sp?) can be helpful but I think after two weeks, it wouldn't do much.  :(

 

L-glutamine is helpful in healing muscular linings (ie. the intestines). That might be one to try. It's usually in health food stores.

 

I hope you turn a corner this weekend.  (hugs)

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
