Was This Glutened?

5 posts in this topic

Not getting any reponses on the "symtoms" board so I will ask over here. My dd doesn't have intestinal symptoms at all. But last night, she left youth group at church early saying she felt like she was going to throw up. We left and she cried for 15 min. with it and never threw up or went to the bathroom. Then it went away as fast as it came on. She was perfectly fine after that and all night. This doesn't sound like most of your glutened symptoms. THey usually are bad and last longer than 15 min. We had to eat away from home for lunch and dinner but she took her entire meal with her. She didn't eat any other food. Was this gluten or a childhood tummy ache, gas? Just wondering if she is starting to have symptoms. She goes back to the doctor Tuesday so I need to know whether to mention this or is it not consistant at all with glutening!

Honestly and in my opinion, it doesn't matter how gluten affect anyone else. Everybody is different. However I have acute symptoms after I eat gluten, nausea and drowsiness that goes away quickly but I will still be tired and then the morning after is usually bad again. I stay bloated for days and almost feel like I have moments when I react to it again and again until its out of my system. I think if it concerns you, mention it. A doctor won't be able to decipher without all the possibilities on the table. I saw that you said she ate her own meals. Did she take her own silverware? Could cross contamination be an issue in your kitchen?

She did take her own silverware but she drank out of the cup at the restaurant without a straw. I only ordered her a drink. That's all I can think of. But she was literally dancing outside on the porch about 25 minutes after it started. It was just weird. I do have a gluten dd (9) in the house becuase they are retesting her this week to see if she has celiac also. So I had to keep her on gluten. But we are very careful and for 6 months so good ....until yesterday. I guess I could drive myself crazy with this one.

Yeah that's a tough one but typical stomach bugs don't come and go that fast. I also jabent experienced gas that caused extreme nausea either.

Could maybe have been her gallbladder acting up? This can come on suddenly and pass suddenly. Can cause nausea and gas type pains. Just be aware of watching for reactions to greasy or fatty foods.

Many Celiacs have gallbladder issues. They seem to go hand in hand? I was told I needed mine removed, but I'm hanging onto it in the hopes it will heal now that I'm gluten-free. It still acts up though. :(

    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
