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..

Congrats on the candy haul

That really sucks!! I'm glad you got off fairly easy....

My biggest problem was getting sick the next week.... Bronchitis, Sinitus, and a virus....It was major sucky.....

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
