I woke up this morning, after a very rough night's sleep, realizing that I got contaminated at the ONE restaurant we go to. My suspicions were confirmed when both my kids, who have celiac disease also, woke up sick too.

My husband has a big night tonight. He is nominated for the biggest award in his field. We have a fancy dinner and ceremony to go to. He looks gorgeous in his tux, and I have a slinky dress and beautiful new shoes to wear. However, every joint in my body now hurts. I'm running back and forth to the bathroom. I have a terrible headache. And my tummy, which has to fit and be flat in this dress, is totally bloated. On top of the fact that I also have two sick kids to take care of! I could just kick myself.

Why did we go out to eat yesterday? It was my idea, and I am now feeling really stupid for doing it. UGH!

Thanks for listening to me vent. Hopefully I'll be feeling a lot better in the next few hours so tonight is not a total disaster.

((hug)) So sorry!!

I am hoping you will recover sufficiently to still attend. How fast do you normally rebound? (I would never make it, but you may be a quick rebounder)

How about some Immodium to temporarily arrest the flood gates? (I have never used it, but I know people on here do.)

and maybe some Advil for the joint pain?

and lots of water?

Hope you have some help to handle the little ones and that you can make the awards dinner. I have my fingers crossed for you!!

Maybe a soak in a hot bath full of epsom salts?

Oh, darn it. What an unfortunate thing to happen on such a special day! I, too, recommend Imodium from personal experience. I take it when on long-haul flights, etc. as a precaution and it really works. My Mom, who I am 100% certain has celiac, uses it frequently for her "IBS" and was told by her doctor she can safely do so.

Hopefully you are feeling better already and can attend this monumental event! :)

Do you have any other dresses which fit the occasion or can you borrow one from a close friend or relative. Since your plans have been tampered with you can do some compromises and save what you can of this day for the sake of enjoying it. Might not be the outfit you were planning to wear but you would probably still look good in a different dress that doesn't require a flat stomach.

I'm sorry this happened to you, and you were out celebrating last night.. nothing wrong with that. The glutening just happened to happen at the wrong time. Hope you are able to enjoy this night. Don't let gluten get in your way

Well, I'm in the dress. Make-up is done. Trying desperately not to throw up. Wish me luck!

AWESOME! So glad you are so courageous. Take some Gravol for your nausea if you can.

Have a wonderful time and please report back! Your husband must be so proud of you, as you are of him.

Well, he lost. But we had a great time anyway. I wasn't able to stay the whole time because I felt just awful, but I was able to hide it long enough to meet some great people and be proud of the man holding me up so I didn't wobble on my high heels and throw up on someone.

Thanks for the advice and well wishes!

He didn't LOSE! He was nominated for the biggest award in his field. Just because he didn't get the award, being nominated makes him a winner in my book. Besides, he's married to you - and THAT makes him a winner!

I wholeheartedly agree, he is a winner. And he won a few years ago anyway so he already has a beautiful statue for bragging rights. Along with a stunning wife who didn't throw up on anyone. ;o)

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
