I am wondering how anyone else with really bad reactions is treated in case of gluten exposure. I was on vacation with my family and got a "gluten free" sandwich but the deli meat was not gluten free even though we asked. I was then vomiting for 2 1/2 hours, became delirious, had severe pain, dehydrated, asthma attack (I have asthma) and went into shock. I needed to be taken to the hospital by ambulance where I was then treated with nausea med, pain med and a large dose of steroid. The doctor there then told me to take 10 mg of prednisone per day for a week (I take 5 mg daily for adrenal insufficiency as it is). This is the second very serious reaction I have had but I think the steroid has made a big difference for me in that last time I was in the hospital for a week - this time I went home the next morning. I am still not feeling great but at least stable.
Long story short I have learned to never eat out, even on vacation. My question is: what has worked for other people who have severe reactions? What have you been treated with?
