I am 1 year into this and have been doing remarkably well. I think I've gotten too brave, because yesterday at Germanfest I asked about the brats (they were Usingers) and whether or not they had been boiled in beer. They were, but the manager offered to cook me one that wasn't in the beer. He came back, put it in a bun and handed it to me. Then I told him I couldn't have it and why, and he cooked me another one. Sure enough, in the middle fo the night last night I thought I was going to die!!! Major cramps and then D and sweats. I woke up this morning with a huge headache, but mostly better. I just want to be somewhat normal and eat fun food sometimes that is safe!!

Any thoughts??

Sorry you're feeling bad. That is no fun. You probably had CC from the grill and the utensils. The utensils touch the buns then your brat and whammie! If the grill wasn't washed clean of the beer brats, whammie! Sorry, I went to a family reunion yesterday where there was very little I could eat. But I ate what I could and had a Lara bar with me and had a good time. It wasn't just about the food.

Believe me, I feel your pain. I was just thinking of coming here and starting a similar thread. I was on a cruise all week last week and did great. I am only a month into the gluten-free diet and I had finally started feeling better. On the way home from the cruise I ate at taco bell. I made 2 great mistakes:
1. Eating at taco bell in the first place. I thought they'd have more safe stuff. I am going to be giving them a call today.

2. Eating 1 bite of 1 corn chip which I spat out when I realized I had forgotten to ask if it was cooked in common oil. It was. I ate pintos and cheese though. It is hard to believe that 1 bite of 1 corn chip could make me sick for 3 days (so far). The pintos and cheese could have been CC'ed too.

I had been feeling so good finally and I am so discouraged to be sick again. It makes me wonder if it was really the taco bell. I am still waiting on some results from enterolab and it is hard to know for sure if it was gluten or what.

I feel your pain. I really do.

Blood and biopsy negative 6/2009, Diagnosed with IBS, "mildy active colitis" (My Dr. didn't tell me this, I saw it on the patho report)
Enterolab results negative for gluten, soy, casein, yeast and egg (maybe I have low IgA)
Gluten free diet starting post-endoscopoy 6/2009
I have found that I not only react to gluten but to soy as well. I'm still working on the dairy elimination and trial.
