Other Food Intolerance Or Glutened?
0

4 posts in this topic

I have been gluten-free for 5 weeks now only because my daughter had issues and I thought it would be easier to keep up with her gluten-free if I was as well. Three weeks into it, I ate bread and was SO SICK within 4 hours of eating it. Sick for two days! So I cooked a meal that I had pre-cooked in my freezer monday night. The recipe does NOT call for gluten, so I thought nothing of it. Well I felt really weird that night but wasn't sure what it was. Then ate it again for lunch yesterday. For dinner ate Pintos, carrots, corn, peas. Felt awful last night. cramps, aching all over. Then I remembered that I *may* have used some wheat flour as a sub in the recipe as a thickener. (UGH!) (cooked this pre- going gluten-free)So today, the stomach pain is so severe, that I am wanting to cry. I have went to the bath room all day and still hurting so bad. I am nauseated as well but I think it is from the pain. I have been eating pintos once a week (at least) for years, So my question is could it be the pintos? the corn? or just Glutened? My 5 year old that is going gluten-free with us (just to see if anyone else has a reaction like mine) also got a bad stomach ache last night and this morning. She has only been gluten-free for 1.5 week though. Any thoughts? My husband thinks it could be the corn. It was corn from our garden that I had put up last year. I think it is the wheat flour....could I have issues this major two days later?

Ugh. Yeah, gluten reactions can go for a while. If it's likely you thickened with wheat flour, I'd bet on the wheat! You double-zapped yourself too. :( It sounds like you need to empty out the freezer.

I take Pepto-bismol when I get glutened and it seems to help me a little.

Thanks for the help. I told my husband that God was helping me by me getting glutened accidentally because after times like that, It makes me not miss the old food like donuts or bread or anything AT ALL!

I think it's possible you have been glutened.

Yesterday I had chili dinner, and I don't know what was put into it-but. Well, I hadn't even finished it. Not even half-way through the bowl! My stomach felt as if it had jumped up and twisted in four knots! UGH!

The problem was, I was eating a dinner roll with it. Made from white flour.

<_<

I don't think it would be the pintos. You said you've been eating them for a while, you would have noticed a reaction by now probably.

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
