Glutened On Tuesday.....
0

8 posts in this topic

Still feeling like a dried out turd on a bad stretch of road.

I'm sitting here on the verge of tears for no reason, I've been snapping at my husband (who does NOT deserve it), I feel like I've spent the last 3.5 days in the bathroom and I'm tired and itchy.

How long does this normally last for you all?

My reactions last a good 2 weeks with the 7th day being the absolute worst day.Reactions vary from person to person though.

Hang in there..it will get better

I hate to say I was severly glutend about a month ago and I'm not better yet, I still have the runs... I was fine before this.... sigh. I haven't really done much for it, I just now started Pepto (I get really sick with Imodium, it makes me feel drunk, dizzy vertigo, yuck) and its a bit better already. Once you've been gluten-free a while ingesting gluten can really do a number on you.

I was glutened last weekend and I'm still feeling ill. I stayed home from work on Monday and Tuesday and I basically have lived on bananas, rice, and yogurt since then.

I'm almost 100% sure that I have been glutened through contamination perhaps more than once during the past week. I've got all my gluten symtoms and I've even broke out in something that may be DH.... I think it's going to take awhile for these symtoms to pass. It's so annoying when this happens... but it really make me realize how careful I have to be... I guess I've kind-of slacked off with my anti-gluten"carefulness" and now I'm paying for it :(

6-7 days for me, with day 2-4 being the worst. I get awfully crabby as well. Hopefully, it'll pass soon for you.

Minde seems shorter, I don't know why that is, but it only lasts 3-5 days for me. I have a high metabolisim, however, so that might play a role in it.

Feel better soon!

I'm starting to feel better today. I'm still very tired and lethargic feeling, but except for the DH my other symptoms are clearing up. Thanks everyone for the replies!

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
