Starting To Regress
Posted 28 July 2010 - 01:37 AM
I've been having a lot of trouble lately with pain returning in my stomach. I was diagnosed in March of 2010, and I was really improving on the gluten free diet (4 months gluten-free).
However, lately I'm having lots of pain at night and it only seems to get worse each passing day. Now during the day I have this constant ache. I'm almost certain it's a gluten problem, but I watch my diet very closely, checking labels, etc... The only place I could be getting it is from cross-contamination, but why is it all of the sudden effecting me so badly. And how do I avoid it if I react so badly to it? It's almost impossible to avoid it all, especially living with a family member who has IBS and eats gluten like it's going out of season. I also have a handful of people who cook for me who are extremely cautious, but could be cross-contaminating. I've begun to lose my appetite again because I'm afraid of anything I put in my mouth.
Any helpful ideas, suggestions would be great.

It's common to get more sensitive in the early stages of the diet. If you continue to have problems, you'll need to revisit your doc to discuss other things (it may not even be celiac-related.) It may also be that you're reacting to other foods (other temporary allergies and intolerances will crop up as you heal.) In that case you may want to have testing done to rule out these.
