Ingesting Gluten
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone else just knows while they are eating something thats it contains gluten. Before you have any symptoms I mean.

I went shopping on Sunday and was starving. I have to eat or I start feeling really weak. Went to a restaurant and could not find one thing on the menu I could have.

After about 20 minutes of searching I asked the waiter for some scrambled egg with avo and some french fries.

Well it looked ok but as soon as I started eating I just knew there was gluten somewhere in this meal. I couldn't taste anything, I can't explain, just a feeling. Within 10 minutes the headache started, heart was racing incredibly fast, nausea and sooo tired I could hardly drive home.

I questioned myself afterwards as to whether I "talked" myself into the symptoms and whether it was all in my head. Is this possible?

I learned a valuable lesson though! Its just so difficult when you are out and hungry, there is nothing to buy quickly to fill you up.

Does this happen to anyone else?

I usually know right away. I get this weird burning/choking/tickle kind of feeling in my throat...... immediately after ingesting.....

I feel it right away. I usually start feeling weird in the midst of eating it right before the symptoms set it. When that happens I stop eating because I know by that point I was glutened.

Thats exactly like me Kaiti.

Its weird because you get all these emotions raging through you because you just know you are going to get sick and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. I almost wish I could make myself throw up to get rid of it but of course that won't work! Its really unpleasant feeling out of control like that.

Bonnie...I know what you mean about feeling like you have talked yourself into getting sick. I don't know if I can tell right away..yet, but I will do things like all of a sudden feel really bloated. I swear I can gain 5 pounds within 4 hours, because of being glutenized...but it feels crazy making. Sometime I feel like a hypochondriac...it just feels crazy!!! :unsure:

My lips get a prickly, tingling sensation and I start to get a little brain fog. Fortunately I am not super sensitive and I can stop eating before it gets any worse.

Ian have you found that the brain fog gets worse the longer you are gluten-free? I am noticing its got a lot worse for me but perhaps it will level out as its still relatively early days for me. Its a horrible feeling, like you're not really here, can't really take in what people are telling me, or promptly forget what they told me!
