Severely Glutened...
0

11 posts in this topic

I got cross contaminated from the peanut butter jar and didn't have symptoms until the middle of the night. Now I feel like I've got stomach flu... complete with body aches, terrible backache, horrible cramping and nausea. I'd made it over a month without even getting slightly glutened. :( (I was on a gluten challenge til the middle of April and then went back to gluten free but got glutened at a restaurant by salad dressing.)

I'd almost forgotten how bad I can feel. THIS SUCKS!!! I only discovered I'm gluten intolerant about 6 months ago (although I've had the symptoms all my life.) We've discovered my 2 year old son is gluten intolerant as well, so at least we caught it early for him.

I guess I can be thankful that my throat hasn't swelled up like it does sometimes, but at least that goes away with benadryl. I haven't had body aches and the whole list of symptoms since April when I was constantly eating gluten for the challenge.

Just needed to vent a little. I get so frustrated I want to cry. I'm still getting used to the fact that there are so many things I can't eat anymore without checking labels, and it's hard to realize that I can't trust anybody when they say something is gluten free. My in-laws were visiting and contaminated the jelly jar right in front of me and I didn't notice until my husband caught me before I put it on my gluten-free bread. I mean it was a lesson for them how sensitive I am and they were nice and understanding about it, but it's still hard to constantly be educating other people.

Have 2 jellies, butter tubs, PB, etc. Put some bright colored tape on the gluten-free one & put your name on it. Anyone who misses hot pick tape with Jen on it is just inconsiderate or mean. Probably shouldn't be in your house. :blink:

I am so sorry. I have felt the same frustration (cried some of the same tears) as I've tried to prevent cross contamination issues from making my gluten-free husband so ill. He's been gluten-free for two years and last year I finally convinced him that the entire house needs to be gluten-free as well. We do great at home, but even when we bring our own food to eat dinner with family he inevitably comes home sick. We're planning a trip to visit family next weekend and I'm already anxious about it. We've never made it through a trip w/o him gettin glutened at least once. So discouraging.

Weird thing is, just after writing the above post I started chilling and running fever. Ran fever (little over 100) for about 16 hours, couldn't eat, and then fever was gone. Woke up yesterday morning feeling better except for a headache and my stomach's still very very sensitive, and I had a round of extremely loose stool yesterday too. Stomach is still sensitive today. I am starting to think the fever may have been gluten related???

Can super sensitive gluten intolerant patients run fever with being glutened?

As of right now I've only been diagnosed Gluten Intolerant. My initial round of Celiac testing came back negative (including biopsies, but only 2 were done). I was not happy with the first doc at all and went to a new GI doc. My new doctor says I wasn't on a proper gluten challenge and the right blood tests weren't done to be completely conclusive. He wants to redo all of the testing (including biopsies- getting 7 this time) and go ahead with the genetic test. I'm not starting that all until this fall.

By the way.... I hadn't been out of the house to be exposed to anyone in the previous 72 hours, and I had not been around anyone who was sick at all in the past 2 weeks that I know of.

You wonderful woman. Your husband is so lucky. All our worrying and persuading has to come from the other direction. It isn't taken very well either.

I agree that with super sensitives the whole house needs to be gluten-free. We tried very hard to do it shared and just couldn't.

Can super sensitive gluten intolerant patients run fever with being glutened?

I get a low grade fever when I get glutened, either a few hours after, or the next day sometime, along with chills and the big D. Low grade fever can continue even when D has stopped, it's quite weird. Before I went gluten free, I kept on getting the chills/fever feeling, and wondering what the hell was wrong with me!

My son runs a fever when he has been contaminated. Sometimes they are even pretty high. Scares me to death!

I run a fever for a few days after getting glutened too. Usually 100.8 to 101F.

I am very new to this, was just diagnosed two months ago and I am having the hardest time. I am beginning to feel like there is gluten everywhere. it seems worse now that I know. I have chronic hay fever and want to cry all the time, but I am too exhausted. Please tell me its gets better.

It gets better. I felt like giving up on life pretty often at the beginning because it is so hard and I kept getting glutened. Plus, I think my brain was messed up from all that gluten. If I hadn't had children depending on me I might have done something about it.

Now life is beautiful and I feel like I have the energy and enthusiasm of a child.

Hang in there. It will get better!

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
