I was diagnosed as having Celiacs in December (altough they found no damage in my upper intestine). I have felt much better since going gluten-free. A week ago, I was very bad and had some things I should not have had. Since then it is as if my digestive system has had a meltdown! I am painfully bloated/gassy, with serious cramping and nasea. My BF are hard and pellet-like. This has been going on a week. Any suggestions to help treat these symptoms? Nothing seems to help. Anyone experience this?

Sounds to me like this is a REALLY good lesson as to why you shouldn't eat gluten. <_< Cheating does damage. There are too many nasty things that can come from not saying on the gluten free diet. If the big C word (cancer) doesn't scare you then I don't know what will. Cancer, lupus, infertility, diabetes etc etc, those are NOT nice things. I don't think eating a doughnut or a piece of pizza is worth it.

Time is about all that will "cure" your reaction that your body is going through. You can try drinking lots of water, eat good foods, some people say that peppermint teas help calm their stomach.

Basically when we cheat we pay the consequences. You have to let the reaction run its course. There are only things we can do to help settle the stomach. Take enzymes during and after meals, take probiotics, liquid vitamins, and teas like tummy mint ,peppermint, and ginger teas work well with soothing the stomach. It's really not worth it all the risks involved and feeling like crap. Find good brands of things you can have.
You will not get better if you are only 50% or 80 % gluten free. The reason why you probably are not getting better yet is because you are eating things u shouldn't. You need to be 100% gluten free.

Do you also know of everything gluten can be hidden under?

Here is a link to safe and forbidden foods to help with a guideline since you are fairy new to the diet. You may or may not already know this info.

Everytime something tempts you think about the consequences to it. Your body works against itself when you eat gluten. It is slowly killing you if you continue to have frequent mistakes. It takes a while for gluten to get out of your system as well. Also cancers and other serious issues come from not following the diet.

I hope you feel better soon :D
