Well, I must have glutened myself also this past Thursday because I felt like I got beaten with a 2x4 this weekend and am just now beginning to feel better. Hopefully you didn't go through anything like that!
For me I start to feel uneasy and anxious, then the gut pain starts and I just need to take it very easy until it starts to feel better. During this time I'm like a wounded animal... a fight or flight state of emotion and not very nice to be around! So I usually retreat to my man cave or go to a happy place like a quiet section of a home improvement store and browse. Weird, but it works. It's a combination of rest and doing something relatively passive to take my mind off the pain.
The leader of a celiac support group I attend said "thank God for symptoms." Without symptoms you would probably just totally destroy your gut and be none the wiser until it was way too late. So that makes sense, but I still would like to find some more and better ways of treating symptoms when they occur because they can be pretty discouraging.
The next time I am about to stupidly ingest some gluten I think instead I will just ask around and find someone about to fire off a big cannon and go stand in front of it with my gut. It will probably have about the same effect!
