As far as anything to help, the only thing we've found that provides a little relief is very light eating, lots of peppermint tea and water, and rest.
I hope his symptoms pass quickly. Try and get some rest yourself. Sometimes the best thing we can do for others is to take a little care of ourselves.
Wife of a wonderful, gluten intolerant DQ2/DQ2 husband!

First of all I just want to thank-you on behalf of your hubby. I'm the celiac in my family and I am grateful for having a great partner who is totally supportive. Mistakes happen...forgive yourself. You make awesome decisions everyday on behalf of your husband.
Ooh, I agree with this wholeheartedly. Thank you for being such a concerned support to your husband. The craziest little things can sneak up on us and catch us unawares. Example. I just got had this past weekend. Totally innocent. My boys and I have been working on a toy prototype. We got distracted by one component and ended up making a blow gun/dart gun with which we were having riotous combat around the house. After several days of this I got hammered Saturday evening but what I thought was a CC episode. Only thing is, I fix my own food in my own prep area and my family is quite good about being careful, bless them! It was then I realized that we were sharing a blow gun that the kids had been putting up to their mouth, probably a cookie or sandwich between some episodes of our warfare.... BINGO. That explained all the neuro symptoms and shutdown I was experiencing. Now I know.. Now you know. I am amazed that you managed to keep it together with all the business you had to attend to. Give yourself a healthy dose of forgiveness and everything will be better.

Glutenings happen! And accidents happen too. This is absolutely not your fault and you're so supportive and wonderful to be so concerned.
