Does anyone but me get sick for an entire month? I am super sick for about 8-10 days but have lots of pain for the entire month and of course Celiac brain.

If I get glutened, which I still do cause I'm new to this, I seem to have bad symptoms for a day, maybe 2, and then slowly get better. I've had it take up to a week to get better before, which is beyond frustrating, especially starting out like I am.

I doubt you're alone, I think we each kind of "personalize" the symptoms, and it probably depends on how much gluten you get in your system as well.

I agree with Josh. It depends on how much gluten I've taken in. Usually, the worst of my symptoms are the first several hours, but I do find that getting a good night of sleep does help. Then they will gradually go away over a week or week and a half, and I'm pretty close to 100% in two weeks.

When I went gluten-free at first I did not realize how much I was cross contaminating myself. I went to a gluten-free deititain that helped a lot. I kept a food diary and slowly learned what bothered me. You have to understand your digestive system is shot. You won't digest normal, sugar gets digested late and causes issues too. Hang in there, it took me 6-7 months in to feel somewhat better. I'm almost a year and finally had a pain free day yesterday!!!! It's a learning thing, what works for you beyond being gluten-free. Look at your kitchen also, protect yourself there.

When I get CC or glutened? Depends on how much, it can last a day to up to 4! I would suggest looking at ways you might be getting cross contaminated. Look into all meds and products as well as food! Hang in there!!!

Since you brought this up, I got glutened yesterday... By, of all things, dry roasted peanuts. It's been 24 hours and I'm still feeling symptoms, though they aren't as bad as normal because I didn't get much. At any rate, I'd be willing to bet that by Friday I might start clearing up, and Saturday or Sunday will return to near 100%.

Were they peanuts out of a bin? Those can get CC. I did eat Planters nuts and trusted them. I was eating a lot of almonds etc this past summer. I was still having a lot of side cramping and tummy bloat. I was allergy tested and found out I'm allergic to peanuts, tomato, almonds, and some melons. My reactions to these food were all gut related. It took me a few months to learn my bodys reaction to certain things. Going whole foods really helped alot. I now know the true gluten feeling versus a food reaction. Keeping a food diary will help alot! Hang in there!

They were Kroger dry roasted peanuts. I didn't think to check the label, cause I'm still new to this. Turns out Kroger uses MSG in the dry roasted nuts. 2 days later, I'm still sick, but not as bad. I get a lot of bloating, nausea and lower abdominal cramps. Good news is, since I caught it before I'd ate a lot of the nuts (a handful is all it took to do this to me) I'm not as bad as I've been known to get.

MSG doesn't have gluten in it but you can be sensitive to MSG as well as gluten. Sorry you had to find out the hard way, ALWAYS CHECK THE LABEL!

To the original poster: I get sick for at least a week from cc, longer if I get a large amount. The last time I was severely glutened was when I ordered gluten free pasta at Olive garden and the server brought me regular pasta instead. I was so sick and after that I ended up with brochitus which turned into pnuemonia. I really don't think the pnuemonia was just a coincidence. I think my immune system was fighting the gluten so hard that it made me vulnerable to getting sick. That said do make sure that yoru have eliminated all sources of cc. Small amounts could be keeping you sick.

Wow now thats real sick, I don't believe its a coincidence either. Too bad you can't sue the Olive Garden. Last time I got sick was from meds my Dr. gave me. I called the mfg but its hard to get info these days. I had taken 3 pills by then. I wish there was more info on a gluten-free dog. I spend a long time being sick, not touching things, not eating out etc.

I've been gluten-free for nearly three months and know I was accidentally glutened twice when eating a product that had been marked gluten-free but the manufacturer contacted me and told me it was not. If they had not contacted me I would have had no clue that I was glutened because I don't get sick. On my three-month gluten challenge I did not get sick, even once, even when consuming tons of the stuff. I just spent three weeks in Croatia and Italy, being extremely careful but still don't know whether I was glutened. It would be so hard to have to suffer through glutenings! What is hard for me is that I just don't know (perhaps that will change in the future?!) so do not know what to avoid or change if there is something going on. Weird feeling.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
