How To Get Through A Celiac Attack?
Posted 23 April 2008 - 07:09 AM
All yesterday evening, I was bloated and tired and then, around 1am, I woke up with stabbing stomach pains and proceeded to spend the next 4 hours in the bathroom with severe diarrhea. I am a bit better today, but still bloated and nauseous.
Aside from drinking a LOT of water, is there anything I can do to get through this? How long am I going to feel awful like this? Should I be calling my doctor or going to the ER? This is my FIRST accidental gluten ingestion since my diagnosis last September.
Thanks for the support.
Diagnosed October 2007 via biopsy.

My tried-and-true remedy is lots of hot mint tea (spearmint and/or peppermint). Something in the mint helps the stomach (medival remedy) and the hot is soothing and the fluid helps if you are loosing water. I use trader joe's mint medley tea but Celestial Seasonings' peppermint and MintMajic are also good and all gluten free.

I reccomend the SCD to everyone now, I've had so many doctors tell me they can do nothing further and that they're so sorry, but with this diet, it's all going away, and my Mum's sleeping again
Good look to everyone!
