I went out for lunch with my family yesterday and ordered some gluten-free food as you do!  Within 3-4 minutes of eating I knew I'd been glutened.  My body began to feel like it was on fire and my throat began to feel tight.  I was quickly rushed outside to get some air.  When all the commotion settled down I was told that during the episode my skin had began to go beetroot red and my veins looked like they were protruding through my skin.  The heat radiating from my chest was immense.  I also had a heat like rash between my thumb and forefinger; always on the right hand. 


I have had these episodes before and they almost always happen when I have been glutened through supposedly gluten free food.  What I find ironic is I recover relatively quickly after these attacks.  I woud be recovered within an hour or less.  If I am stupid enough to eat non gluten-free than I will be in free fall for days.


Not that I am complaining but what's with this really quick recovery after eating contaminated gluten-free food?

It almost sounds like you had an allergic reaction to something you ate.  Are you diagnosed with an allergy or Celiac Disease?

gluten-free I was thinking the same thing. The tight throat concerns me. It is possible to have both celiac and an allergy. OP you need to mention this to your doctor as allergic reactions can go from annoying to deadly with no warning.

You are definitely describing a wheat allergy, not a Celiac reaction. This will become worse and can advance easily into anaphylaxis.


First step for you is to get an Epi-pen and never go anywhere without it.


Second step is to talk to your doctor and get a full food allergy panel, to make sure it's only wheat (or confirm it is wheat). This is expensive but in your case may save your life.
