So I got an M&M sonic blast for a midday snack. (I know risky) And as I was eating it I noticed it tasted kinda nasty...then I realized I had just eaten an oreo. My first oreo in over a year. And now I'm sitting here afraid that I'm going to get sick... :'(

I'm sick of loosing favorite foods...and I don't wanna loose this one! I know food prep people aren't the most careful people, and I've found butterfinger pieces, and snickers pieces, but this is the first oreo piece.

I guess now I just play the waiting game?

Oh dear, so sorry to hear that :( It's extremely frustrating when you try so hard to be gluten free, and then some twit in a fast food joint messes up your order :(
There isn't much you can do, but I'd recommend eating "easy" foods for the next few days to give your GI system a break while it heals. Like eat well cooked foods, no raw veggies, go easy on the dairy etc.

Some people recommend Pepto bismol for pain/cramps, immodium for d etc.

Hope it doesn't hit you badly.

About M&M sonic blasts - don't know what's in that, but you might be able to make yourself - cheaper and safer. ;) I've also lost favourite foods, like granola oats, *sad*.

Thank you!

I've pretty much had to give up all eating out and this is just a major blow :(

So far no symptoms...but it's only been 10 minutes....

((( hug )))

You might have to ask them to be sure there is nothing but M&Ms in your sonic blast. Say you have a "severe wheat allergy" and they will be more careful.

You might get sick but you will get through it and be OK. (Which isn't much consolation but it's all I can really say since we can't "undo" gluten.) The one thing I'm thankful for with celiac is that glutenings only make me miserable, not send me to the hospital like kids with peanut allergies.

The one thing I'm thankful for is at least I'm home this time...with my own bathroom...not out somewhere...

I agree with you about the peanut thing, except at least people take a peanut allergy seriously... Most people either haven't heard of celiac disease or believe it's all 'in my head'

I'm feeling better than I expected. I had a mild reaction, the worst of which was the headache and brain fog. (Usually my worst symptoms are bathroom related) Thanks for asking :)

I still can't believe I've been off gluten long enough to think the oero tasted nasty :P

Glad you got off mildly! I had a big gluten goof up this weekend but it was all my fault! I ordered a bunless mushroom swiss burger wrapped in lettuce. I took three bites to realize that it was mushroom gravy not sauteed mushrooms. I felt like such an idiot! I was practically in tears over my stupidity.

My issues are usually bathroom related as well and oddly I just got really horrible bloating and wicked heartburn the day of...my usual rash the next day, but no D. Weird.

A note on Smarties for Canadians: What Americans call Smarties, we call Rockets. "Smarties" in Canada DO contain wheat. But M&M's are gluten free! (Save for the new pretzel M&M's..)

I was so excited that the big bag of Halloween candy we got contained a few different gluten-free candies - Peanut M&M's, Snickers, Oh Henry (I'm 90% sure on that one?) and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups..
