I Accidentally Ate Gluten!
0

3 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free just short of two weeks, and yesterday and this morning I was finally starting to feel good, my energy was coming back and my stomach was pretty happy, then after dinner (salad with salmon and mussels) I felt disgusting, sleepy and bloated with gut pain. The feeling just seemed to increase so I checked the mussel container and the wood smoked flavoring contained traces of gluten. I wouldn't think such a tiny amount would affect me so quickly, and I am SO distended! This is the first time I've forgotten to check the ingredients! Based on some things I've read, I'm terrified that I'll have to go through the entire withdrawal process all over again! Just as I was getting better. The last two weeks have felt like months! Please don't say I have to go through it all again, I had no energy, nausea, pains, palpitations etc after quitting. I also read somewhere that after quitting gluten it's worse the next time you ingest it. Is there any comfort for me? Or do I have to spend another two weeks in misery?

I don't think that this glutening will set you back to zero and reset the withdrawal clock. While glutenings are not pleasant, and they can last for varying lengths of time in different people, you have not "fallen off the wagon" and it shouldln't affect your withdrawal symptoms. If it did it would be hard for any of us to make it through because it is in the beginning that we make our most mistakes. I am sorry you are feeling miserable, So yes, our reactions to gluten do tend to get worse once we rid our bodies of it, but no, it should not put you back into withdrawal. It is just a blip on the radar although it doesn't feel like it at the moment.

Thanks, that's very good to hear
