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. ;)

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
