Help I'm Feeling Terrible
0

4 posts in this topic

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I just need to tell someone. I feel terrible and I am holding my stomach and thats not helping. This is the first time since going gluten free that I have felt this bad. I have been keeping a food diary for the last couple of weeks. I haven't been having milk except in my coffee (very little) then last night I made corn bread needed 1 cup of milk and other things. I made a pot of pinto beans with 1 onion salt pork and some season salt and thats it usuaslly it never bothers me, but I felt a little bloated and I ate it on top of my cornbread. The last time I made the beans I did not make cornbread. Then this am I made a omelete with organic cheese and sour cream and a little milk in my eggs. The cheese and sour cream never bother me as I eat these alot in taco's. I think maybe I had to much milk in the last day. I had to run to the bathroom and I hadn't had to do that lately either. Now I'm sad that I made my self sick. Maybe there was gluten I didn't clean up good enough. I think I will go clean out the silverware drawer I saw a bunch of crumbs in there. Heck I going to scrub down my whole kitchen. Thanks for letting me vent. I guess I will start all over.

I forget that I had taquitoes at my moms when I was there yesterday, I read the label maybe I missed something, I know it said carmel coloring and I have avoid that ingredient since Aug because i read that that shouldn't be a problem. Maybe thats the problem who knows?

Question? Can a person be intolerant to milk and not cheeses and sour cream or did I gluten myself somewhere along the line? :(

Ok I really blew it. I now know why I am sick this am It started last night with a little bloating. Than today with cramping and the big D. Well I took my mother shopping yesterday and I remember that she needed FLOUR so without even thinking about it I picked it up and put in the basket, went to her house and ate a little food not even realizing that I had picked up the FLOUR. Well I can tell you that will never happen again. Usually her in house support person does all of this. Mom ny had 2 strokes 2 yrs ago this Feb, but she is ok not great but ok. Anyway thanks for letting me vent.

I am cleaning out my kitchen drawers now.

Wow - I'm amazed that just picking up a bag of flour made you so sick! I am so sorry you got sick, but at least you know what it was caused by.

I will have to remember to be very careful about things like that. My son is gluten free, but I am wondering if he is getting CCed because he is not feeling as good as he was when we first went gluten free. He has been having stomach aches and nausea.... I did throw out my 2 scratched teflon pans, and wooden spoons. I am cooking in a cast iron pan now so maybe that will help...

Anyway, sorry to ramble, I hope you feel better really soon!

Question? Can a person be intolerant to milk and not cheeses and sour cream ...?

someone who is lactose intolerant (milk sugar) but not intolerant to the protein in milk would show that symptom. Cheeses and sour cream have had much of the lactose digested away by the bacteria culture that turns ordinary milk into those products.

I suppose if you are brave you could test that by drinking a glass of "lactaid" milk, if you are ok with that then the next day try a glass of ordinary milk :blink:

I've tried that and decided that I am not lactose intolerant

cheers

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
