What Can I Do To Feel Better?

Hi,

I'm still kind of new to the scene and think I was glutened last night. I ate a premade restaurant salad and some homemade chicken rice soup. I'm guessing I got glutened from the salad. Anyways, I feel sooooo nauseous, have a migraine, and have pain under my sternum which makes it hard to walk around and stand up. I"ve also visited the bathroom quite a bit. I've been drinking water and ginger ale to help, but it doesn't do a thing. Do you have any suggestions on how I can feel better? Do I just have to wait it out? How long will it take for me to feel better?

;) Jen

It sounds like you are already doing the things that i normally do. Usually i take some Tylenol or Motrin and it helps me with some of the pain. Other than that, just get some extra rest and wait it out. I wish i had a quick cure to give you.

Reaction times for people vary. I feel really bad for a good 2 weeks and the 7th day is the absolute worst.

Basically you just have to wait it out. There are some things that may help ease the symptoms but other than that there is not much to do.

Jen,

Each person is different in their reaction but I usually feel better if I take a walk. It helps get my mind off how I feel when I can enjoy the sunshine, hear the crickets, etc.

When I really feel lousy I take Pepto Bismol for some relief.

Best of Luck!

Hi Jen,

I'm sorry you got glutened. It could have been the salad, or they may have used four in the soup to thicken it. <_<

Yes...drink alot of water, try cranberry juice as it is very cleansing. Eat simple food for a few days. Grapes are great because they are also cleansing. Eat as much organic as you can so that you stay away from pesticides. After being glutened many people get really achey, and bad firbromyalgia attacks. Pesticides can cause swelling and aggrivate the joints and muscle tissue making you feel worse.

You can take a probiotic like acidophillus. It helps the digestion process and helps to build the immune system. But mainly each person experiences the reaction differently. You have to find out for yourself how long your reactions will be and what they will be like.

Hope you feel better, Wendy :)

Thanks for writing back everyone. I went for a slow walk today with my dog and that did help to get my mind off how I was feeling for a while. Other than that I've been drinking water, ginger ale, and munching on some rice crackers.

I'm not sure it was the soup broth because it says gluten free right on the box (imagine brand). I didn't use any flour to thicken it. I guess it's just a waiting game at this point. I have to discover how long it will take my body to cleanse itself, but is it normal to be very nauseous for some time?

Thanks again for the advice.

Jen
