Food Poisoning Or Gluten Contamination?

Any thoughts? Sorry so long.

Good luck, and I think food poisoning hits you at both ends and doesn't last 2 days but I am not certain.
gluten-free since March 27, 2004

Usually, I've found with true food poisoning, I vomit rather than get diarrhea--i.e. my stomach reacts, not my intestines.
It might even have been a combination of food poisoning and gluten in the case you described.
I've had gluten reactions that range from mild (one episode of steatorrhea), to moderate (fairly bad back pain but no bowel symptoms) to extreme (excrutiating cramps with diarrhea like you described.) I don't know what causes the variations in intensity. I suspect one of the really bad ones came from licking an envelope but don't know for certain.
There's so much we don't know about this disease, unfortunately.
Sorry you had to go through such a difficult time!
