What Is Wrong With Me?
0

9 posts in this topic

I had posted about Monday night, how I ate out and either had food poisoning or gluten. Well tonight it happened again, but I made dinner at home and I thought all the ingredients were gluten-free. As soon as the meal was over, the nausea hit and this time I threw up. I have vomited twice--no bm yet. I made a "sauce" out of yogurt and mayo, with some spices. I used Vanilla flavored Stoneyfield yogurt and Kraft mayo. I used one Spice Island spice and then a Mccormick spice. I used coconut oil and chicken and avodado and rice. Am I missing something? Is one of these not gluten-free? Maybe I have a virus? But I have felt ok Tue and today until dinner time. If this is what is going to happen to me from gluten then I am in BIG trouble! Vomiting was not a part of my symptoms pre-diagnosis, and not even when I was contaminated before and I knew it. Do many others have nausea and vomiting after gluten? I always expected diarrhea and cramps and pain and bloating and gas. I am a bit worried about this. Any advice is much appreciated.

Karina,

Nausea/vomiting are my symptoms. I'm not sure, but is there any chance your foods were cross-contaminated in some way? I'm betting that you're careful, but it's just a thought.

What happened to be before I was diagnosed was that I'd be fine for a week or two, but then the Gluten build up in my system was so strong that my vomiting was reinduced.

You mentioned feeling nauseated after meals and I can relate to that. There were even days that I couldn't get through a meal without vomiting--and every item that I ate contained Gluten.

Since celiac3270 has gotten me in the mindset, do you toast your gluten-free bread in the same toaster that regular bread is toasted? I don't know how sensitive you are to Gluten, but even a small amount can damage the intestinal wall--my GI told me that as well.

I hope you find the cause, and that all is well with you.

Oh, something else I just remembered--have you checked your cosmetics and toiletries? (Especially shampoo/conditioner) Sometimes those can perpetuate symptoms (if you swallow lotion, for example).

Every expert who has spoken on gluten absoprtion through the skin agrees -- gluten molecules are too large to be absorbed. You can get topical stuff in your mouth by accident, but you do NOT absorb gluten through your skin.

I agree you should look for contamination possibilities. For instance, had the mayo been used for a gluten dish or sandwich, which would have transferred crumbs?

Is there a possible allergy to something else?

good luck

Lovegrov--

Sorry about the misinformation about skin absorption. A doctor actually told me that.

Well the mayo was brand new, never been used. I called the yogurt co. and they said that all the grain alcohol is burned off in the processing and so IF there were any gluten it would have been airborne and not measurable. I am wondering about the Spice Island spice I used and they do not have a ph # to call. I do think it is possible this is a virus. I have eaten a bit today, actually woke up hungry despite still feeling a bit crampy and a bit painful in the abdomen area. The only other thing I can think of is that there was a lot of dairy in my meal, with the ygurt and mayo and all and maybe it was just too much, although I have been able to eat a bowl of ice cream with no problem as well as milk in my cereal, etc.

I am hoping this is a virus--it will go away.

I read that the only Stoneyfield yogurt we can have is their plain yogurt. Perhaps the vanilla yogurt caused the reaction? Also, was the mayo light? I had a reaction to Kraft light mayo. Could you be pregnant? Or maybe you have a stomach virus.

I hope you feel better soon!

I'm not sure that I agree with that statement. It may have been the yogurt or the Spice Islands spice. If it was a seasoning mixture and not just a plain spice, then it has a higher probability of containing gluten. I try to stick with McCormick single spices and gluten free spice mixtures sold at specialty stores. Just not worth getting sick over.

But I also did not have vomiting as one of my symptoms and about two weeks ago I was vomiting one night, nausea the next day, fine the next day, diarrhea and nausea, then throwing up again with the nausea and diarrhea coming and going a few more days. It ended up being a stomach virus that was going around town, but the sypmtoms were not steady and it lasted a full week. I was wiped out and it took a while to start feeling normal again. I had not tried any new foods and I had not eaten out, so I know I did not get any gluten (or dairy, which causes me a wealth of symptoms as well!).

I hope you are feeling better.

God bless,

Mariann

Yes, I am still suspicious of the yogurt. On a previous call to Stoneyfield, I was told the only one that was for sure safe was the plain as well. As for the spices--I am the same in that I only use Mccormick ones because I know they are safe, but in this instance, I had this other spice that was just a single spice from another co (Spice Island) and of course I had bought it "pre-Celiac". My hubby wondered about the pregancy possibility as well... that would be really funny (well maybe not REALLY) because the other two times I have been pregnant I was convinced I just had a virus--I really didn't believe I could be preggo either time! :lol:

Well, I think it was a virus, and I am feeling much better now. Thanks so much for all the responses--and I DO need to think twice before eating that vanilla yogurt again, or using that spice. ;)

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • 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.
