I was curious if other people have found relief when accidentally glutened - I get pretty severe abdominal pain and an upset stomach - has anyone found an over the counter remedy that alleviates pain after the damage has been done?

Not really, but I do take a daily supplement of acidophilus and if I suddenly feel I'm having issues I take a second supplement at the end of the day and it seems to help it all pass quicker

I use Maalox to stop the severe cramping. It doesn't help with other gi issues, but the cramping eases. Sometimes it takes 2 doses. - I keep a bottle at work. :-)

What always helps me is a heat pack. the hotter the better, it really relaxes all the muscles and makes the cramps so much less painful.

Not sure if this would help, but I've read that sometimes, anti-inflammatory foods can help, a little. Fish oil, things high in omega fatty acids, olive oil, pumpkin seeds, vitamin e supplements. Nightshades, and foods high in dairy and sugar, seem to have the opposite effect (you can google anti-inflammatory foods and find all sorts of info. on-line. Just have to wade through it to find the reliable information)

My husband has pretty bad allergies, and was told by his doctor that anything that involves inflammation as part of the 'reaction' can be helped by these types of foods. My hubby started taking these, and it made a huge difference. I've been wondering if it might work for me if I got glutened, ya know?

That said...don't know if it would work for us celiac folk, as we can't really digest well once we've been glutened. But hey, probably wouldn't hurt, yes?

Sometimes I get stomach cramps and pain and I use Roliads (one of the mint kinds) and if it is really bad I use heat.It helps relax the muscles. Sometimes I get a really hot shower.

I take a really hot bath and relax in it for about 20 minutes... the pain is usually gone or at least tolerable. I use Tylenol and Simethicone to help relieve the gas pains.

Thank God Im not alone! Im newer to this whole gluten thing and notice if I eat something I shouldnt it doesnt hit me right away. I get the rash 2-4 days after, feel like theres a cinder block in my belly for a few days, then maybe at about a week or so later the real pain starts! The abdominal shooting pain is almost unbearable. You think you have to go to the bathroom but not much happens just waves of shooting pain and sweats. Is this similar to anyone else?? Does it take that long to get it out of your system? Ive really had a hard time adjusting to all this. Its depressing to not be able to have all my favorite foods and eating out is a nightmare, yet a big part of my social life. It seems no matter how vigilant you are theres ALWAYS SOMETHING that knocks you off track. UGH. :(

I use an herbal supplement of Quercitin and Bromelain. It can be found at natural foods stores. I get severe pain that feels like a toothache in my upper stomach and back. The herbal supplement mentioned above helps with the pain and healing. Sometimes I have a really bad reaction and it doesn't work as well for the pain then. I also take Tylenol but am afraid to take ibuprofen because of the warnings about stomach bleeding. I figure if I have ulcers already it may not be a good idea.
