Mine seem to be coming on faster now that I've been gluten-free for a while (8 months). I took an accidental direct hit a couple of weeks ago eating Thai food in Japan- I ordered what was supposed to have been a safe green curry over rice, but it's entirely possible that wheat starch or flour was used to thicken the sauce or bread the chicken- HUGE language barrier and not particularly good service (not food poisoning as the husband ate some of my food). I was starting to feel "off" before we even left the restaurant. I had a headache within the hour and was dry heaving within two hours. I managed to CC myself yesterday on some candy (wrapped Snickers Minis, which apparently have a high risk of CC- wish I'd known before I started eating them). I felt "off" within a few minutes and sure enough, I had a headache all afternoon and evening- one of those unpleasant, shaky, nauseated ones that I only get with gluten.

This is interesting because I had some smoked brisket last night at a friends house. Her dad cooked it on a brand new grill, her mom has celiac so he has learned how to work around it. There was food with gluten in it around but I only had the meat. Today my stomach is upset but that's all I have right now. Also, her mom drank a beer, I almost fell over! I was like "Um...you do know that's going to make your DH show up, right? It's a HUGE nono!" and she just looked at me and said "yeah, I jsut feel like being a little crazy tonight". Um, fine, you kill your intestines, I'll be over here. Also, I was a little jealous. I can't help but think how much easier my life would be if I was either asymptomatic or only had DH. Instead I have to agonize over what I eat, sauces, and deal with a husband deployed. It's so tiring sometimes.

K8ling, actually we're the ones who have it easier in the long run. We have major incentive not to eat gluten. Thus, our guts can actually heal and we can recover. If we were asymptomatic, we'd probably be fine with cheating every so often, destroying our health slowly without even realizing it, then getting sick with any one of several more severe, less controllable, possibly fatal diseases.

Not that it doesn't suck sometimes to have to turn down that nice, cold hoppy beer or yummy cookie. But I think in the long run it will suck less for us than it will for someone asymptomatic who won't stick to the diet.

I respectfully reserve the right to change my response upon further data collection in my food journal. :P

Until such time- I'll have to say:

Depending on either the type of gluten ingested or the amount (although I have not narrowed this to an exact science)- vomiting before the meal is over OR D within one hour of the meal lasting for several days. Vomiting is followed by D later in the day and lasts for several days.

GERD, acid reflux and chest pains within an hour or two- last for days/weeks.

Skin rash flare ups within a day and seem to last forever.

Exhaustion is immediate and lasts for days. Brain fog too.

Body aches and pains within a day and last for 3-4 days.

Depression hits around Day 2 to 3.

And people wonder why I don't want to allow any gluten in my home. B)

Hello, I am new to the forum.  I was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy last November, and discovered gluten intolerance in December.  Basically I've been gluten free since then (I am not celiac), and saw great changes--gone my constant morning diarrhea, gone my muscle aches and pains, gone my persistent headaches.  And best of all, no more seizures!  My doctor was not convinced that gluten was the trigger, but agreed to give me a 6 month trial meds free, and this Monday morning I awoke, panicked, because all of the symptoms were back (5 a.m.).  Thought, I will have to call her and get on meds, I guess--partial seizure  (at least not generalized this time!), shakes, vomiting, the works!  Then my husband reminded me that we had eaten tabouleh, which I thought was made with quinoa.  WRONG--bulgar wheat, and I only had 3 tablespoons.  I have been better, after a day of migraine, followed by nausea and stuffiness.  Today I have muscle and joint pain, which I haven't had since December. So that is a delayed reaction, I guess.  Sigh.  At least it confirms my suspicions.

It depends, I got glutened at the beach but it was all CC and took 2 days to get REALLY sick. Other times I have been sick within 2 hours of eating it.

K8tling, how do you know that it was cc at the beach, and not something after -- i ask because I'm still pretty new to this and this is the part I find confusing.  How will I know if/what 'got' me.

Are you sure you are intolerant and not celiac?

For me, generally I have symptoms in 12 to 24 hours if its gluten, and usually feel really crummy for 2-3 days, and semi crummy at days 4-5 ...and then pretty much back to good again. 

 

Something to remember and think about is that if you react to something immediately to within 2-3 hours at the outside, it is generally an allergic reaction, not an intolerance. So if you're reacting to something that fast, you might want to see an allergist. Lots of people don't really understand the differences between allergies and intolerances. If you have both, you should learn the differences to help you identify what's going on with you.

 

 I have Celiac, along with intolerance to dairy of any sort, and multiple food allergies, andwith the allergies, I react very fast (immediately to within 2 hours). If I get glutened, 12-24 hours have passed, before I notice it...and then I REALLY notice it! :( Its not fun for the next  5-6 days. Hope this helps a little.

My head starts feeling swimmy before I finish the meal and 45mins later I'm in the bathroom with bad stomach pains, it effects pretty bad with head aches and fatigue for a couple days. I haven't been gluten-free for very long so I can't answer how it changes over time sorry but I'm sure you will always have a reaction of some sort and it probably depends in how much you ingest.
