I'm new to this. I'm not formally diagnosed but when I tried to go back on gluten after what amounted to an elimination diet I had intense pain and bowel symptoms as well as joint pain and brain fog (so it may be gluten intolerance but I'm working under the assumption that I need to be gluten free either way). I'm still figuring out all the things I need to avoid. Today I had some blue cheese and apparently that was enough to hurt me.

What do you do to soothe your symptoms when you've been exposed?

I like to use teas to calm my stomach. Peppermint, Ginger, and if necessary to move the bowels, I like just a touch of the Chocolate Smooth Move from Traditional Medicinals before I go to bed.

I managed to get prescribed loperamide capsules by my doctor after a lot of pestering - a couple of those takes care of the worst effects. I also take them before I go to somewhere I might eat gluten by accident - it's amazing how many things seem to contain wheat.

Hi and welcome!

I drink hot tea, and stick with bland foods until I feel better. I find that having a little something in my stomach actually helps. Banana, potato, Fage 0% yogurt are go-to things for me.

I tend to get D, so I use Immodium for that. I used to try and let it run it's course, but honestly, for me, one dose usually stops it completely and gives my system a rest.

For the mood-related symptoms, I try and rest as much as possible and remember that it will pass ;)

thanks guys, I'll stock up on peppermint and ginger teas. I've got a feeling it's gonna take a while before I'm able to assure I'm eating safe foods.

I find that when I am glutened homemade veg soup. What ever veg I have I boil up and strain off and then cut up carrot, onion, celery, beets. The first spoonful my stomach seems to relax like my body knows that the food isn't poison.

Good luck, I find this journey has been a lot of trial and error.
