Hi,

I've been having issues with my stomach for years, but the past month or so it has gotten worse. I went to see a doctor who listened to me patiently and asked a lot of questions. She is testing me for wheat intolerance and vitamin deficiencies, thyroid, and put me on a Gluten Free diet. She also prescribed Diflucan for two weeks because of yeast. This was 11 days ago.

I did really well eating gluten free, until a mistake I made yesterday. I bought some oatmeal that I thought said gluten free, but after I got a stomach ache and numerous bathroom visits, I investigated and realized it said guilt free... My son laughs at me for that!

Well, today, my skin is dry and itchy, I'm really crabby and irritable, and when I tried to put my contacts in this morning, got a really horrible burning pain in my eyes. Kind of like putting soap in your eyes. I am very new to the gluten free lifestyle.. is it possible that all this is part of the reaction to consuming a non-gluten free item yesterday??

Yea it sure could be related to the glutening. You may want to hold off on oatmeal for a little while also until you are well healed. Some of us don't tolerate even gluten free oats and you don't want to be taking chances right now. When you feeling better and have healed go ahead and add them back in to see if they agree with you.

I hope your feeling better soon.

Thanks guys!

I just finished with an epsom salt bath, hoping my skin will feel better. I guess the eye burning really threw me for a loop! I will see if that will resolve on its own, too, while I continue to eat clean.

Ok, no more oatmeal, even the $5 bag of 'gluten free' stuff I just got. Is rice ok? I have some whole grain wild rice I ate last week, seemed to do good with it. All I had today was veggies and meat.

Plain rice is fine as is wild rice. Potatoes and sweet potatoes are also going to be fine. Do keep up the clean unprocessed diet as that will help you heal the fastest.
