I had a wonderful day yesterday and the meal was perfect.
Stuffing made with Glutino Genius bread.
I went to bed at midnight and wok at 4:15 having an allergic reaction. Took a pill and after an hour felt better, went back to bed and woke an hour later and the reaction was worse.
Itchy lips and mouth and that awful sinus pain. I took another pill and it has eased but it is still there. I have no idea what it could be from. Maybe a reaction to the bread in the stuffing? I did eat a lot of it and also had some later.

I ate Butterball turkey, stuffing, sweet potato yukon gold potato (very little) homemade cranberry sauce, roasted carrot,turnip and beets with sunflower oil and Tbsp balsamic, frozen peas, gluten-free gravy made with rice flour and homemade pumpkin pie, crust less with gluten-free chex topping and Breyers all natural vanilla ice cream.
Any ideas anyone?

Do you eat Chex and Breyers often without any reactions? They might have gluten cross contamination issues.

Dont they inject the Butterball turkeys with some kind of oil to make them juicy? Maybe whatever is in the oil mixture got you.

I am so new to all this I could be reacting to something other than wheat.
I have had constant symptoms since.

Yesterday I ate turkey, cranberry sauce, gravy, chex with milk, the oven risotto with turkey in it and broccoli and pie with the ice cream.

I got up an hour ago and was ok but now am in pain and the itchy face, mouth etc. The only thing I have had is one cup of coffee with Coffeemate and a spoon of honey.
Maybe it is environmental? Could it be candles? I burned some on Christmas but not since but they are still sitting on the table.
I will stick to a very basic diet today, things I know are safe and get rid of the candles just in case.
Thanks for your thoughts.

The Breyers all natural vanilla is on their gluten free list. http://www.penny.ca/Breyers.htm

Has anyone checked to see if they use a dedicated facility to produce their gluten free foods? Do they use dedicated lines? Are those issues that you normally have problems with?

Since that was the only new thing, that is what I would suspect the most, but it could be other things too as you know.

I do not know what is in Coffee mate---is this something new for you---is it something in there maybe?

Did you make the gravy yourself?

Just trying to help figure it out.

Coffeemate is gluten-free, but contains casein (dairy).

I thought the Breyers and the coffeemate were safe. I have had coffeemate without problems before but this is a new container. I did have a second coffee but used milk just in case. Dairy has never been a problem.
I made the gravy with gluten-free br. rice flour that I have used a lot.
This is so new to me I guess I may need to do the elimination diet. :(
I suspect it may be something other than wheat. But it is a histamine reaction.
I'll be cautious for the next few days.
Thanks again, Charlotte

I don't believe Breyers uses dedicated lines for gluten free items.

Suspect the dairy. Even though it hasn't been a problem for you in the past. It happened to me too. Ugh.

I am suspecting dairy.
I have had a migraine for 3 days. (had them my entire life) I have been having this productive cough since October when I first got ill. Sometimes it gets worse, sometimes bad wheezing. I have noticed a connection with being cc'd with wheat. Now dairy.
I ate grilled cheese last night and when I went to bed I could not sleep with the migraine pain and wheezing and coughing, it was all suddenly worse.
I know nothing about Casein except that it is in milk.
If someone could point me in the right direction, web sites, , personal experience I can get busy trying to figure this out.
Thank you, Charlotte
