How Soon After Getting "glutened" Do You Feel Effects?
Posted 19 July 2012 - 05:12 PM
*How soon after you ingest gluten do you begin to feel "glutened"?
If it's on an empty stomach (pancakes for breakfast), I feel a stomach ache within 10 minutes.
*What after-effects or reactions do you experience?
I get bloated and have gas and C. I often have migraines and sore joints and back.
*How long do/es the "glutened" effect(s) or reaction(s) last?
This I don't know since I've been glutened for the last 30 years. LOL

Acid reflux/GERD (stopped since eating gluten-free)
Posted 26 July 2012 - 05:59 AM
For a few days since Ive had some stomach pain, and since the diarrhoea, constipation. I am also having acid reflux and brain fog/drowsiness.
In the past when I've accidentally been 'glutened,' I've recovered in a couple of days, however I ingested quite a lot this time so I guess it's going to take longer.

I was happy to read that others experience different reactions to gluten. It gave me comfort to know I am not the only one, and to help me determine that it was gluten that somehow got into my food.
I find that white rice is helpful with my recovery, I also had a massage once when I 1st accidentally was glutened and it seemed ot help speed up recovery, make sense as they are detoxifying. I am considering an epsom salt bath. I have heard people suggest good bacteria from suppliments as well as yogurt.

I've been glutened 2 times, in the last two months, I could feel it coming very soon after. But, it seems to take 4 days before I am incapacitated. That lasts for four days, too.
Cc is my biggest problem, as you all well know.
Right now, low calorie intake and constipation are plaguing me. I have to add more fiber.
I look back at my life and realize certain foods felt calm, like potatoes.

The crouton part really made me laugh, too. Sadly, I just had an accidental crouton ingestion; forgot that Cesar Salad comes with croutons. Duh! Just not used to thinking abou it yet. I had picked most of the croutons out, but this fraction of a croution was hidden between the greens. When I heard the crunch I knew. If I was not eating with someone, I probably would have spit it out. I've been glutten free for approximately two months. My IGA was normal, but MD suggested a gluten-free diet, and she was further convinced when I told her my eczema went away, and my KP smoothed out. Probably I'm not aware of how it affects me entirely. For example, I see people mentioning fatigue, and that's been a problem with my accidental ingestions. The intestinal symptoms are obvious; I start out feeling feeling squirrely within an hour after, like something is not right. Sometimes it's 30 min later or sometimes 3 hours later, but I have massive soft stools, followed by massive D that looks greasy and slimy. It takes 3-5 days to get back to normal. I also get burpy, about two hours later, like food might come up, and sometimes it does. Sometimes bloating and then gas. Sometimes gas and then bloating. Non stop bouts of gas that last an hour and appear periodically throughout the day usually lasts for at least three days...I could end our energy dependency if we could harness this output. After the gas and bloating is over, I have sore guts for a day, like I got kicked in the guts. I get irritable, but maybe that's just from the general pain.

I've been gluten-free for over 10 years and can count on one hand how many times I've been glutened. The last time was my own fault ... I ate a wheat hot dog bun thinking it was gluten-free (again... my own fault). Less than 2 hours later, my body just purged itself... constant vomiting and diarrhea shooting out of me at the same time. I ended up having to strip off my clothes and sat on the john w/ a waste can in my lap. It lasted for at least 3 hours. I don't remember any symptoms the next morning... I think I was just happy to be ALIVE!! Seriously... that will NEVER happen again.
