Does anyone vomit after being glutened? I'm not talking about if you touched a few breadcrumbs and ate them. If you have just one oreo cookie, does it make you throw up? I can handle a little cross contamination, but I had some breakfast potatoes that were cooked with wheat (they mixed flour with the potatoes) and it made me vomit. I also had a donut about 6 months after being diagnosed and it made me extremly sick as well from both ends. Just wondering if the side effects are as harsh on others?

So you are saying that you have been cheating on the diet? I guess that is what we often call it but it doesnt fit when cconsidering it does not do any good and only puts us more behind at healing. Just to clarify, though you appear to have been on here a long time, a little bit of gluten is not alright for any category you may fit in. Im sure you know that though. I feel extreme sympathy for you if you didnt realize that.

Anyway, i myself dont throw up when i get cross contaminated but you can say i was never officially diagnosed. I do bloat badly and get very nauseas though. I get real drowsy and have bad brain fog, especially morning after. Then once the bloat goes down, usually takes about three days, i get D real bad for a couple days. I do remember a few times i had both and got really dehydrated but it was long before knowing anything about gluten sensitivity and celiac. It only happened after a bunch of pasta and some chips. Strangely i cant handle any cross contamination now at all and yet i have never thrown up when i was on a gluten free diet. Everyone is on different sensitivity levels for cross contamination as i have seen.

The only time I threw up from gluten was after many years of cumulative damage to my digestive system just prior to going gluten-free. If you are vomiting, it sounds like you have to make some dramatic changes to your diet.

Razzle,

I never said anything about cheating (yes, maybe at first, but not after 4 plus years). I am just asking if when people do get hit are they vomiting! Yes, I tried a donut once when first going gluten free, but no, after 4 plus years I do not cheat. By me saying I can handle cross contamination does not mean I am cheating, it means occasionally I get hit with cross contamination (meaning someone stuck their contaminated sandwich knife in my gluten free peanut butter jar), but it doesn't make me vomit. I am just asking if when some people do cheat do they vomit because I have read on this site about people making the choice to cheat and I am just wondering how they can do that since it would make me vomit.

Lol yeah i figured you knew better than that and that one time was just because it was early in your gluten free experience. Besides that i was gonna ask what your recipe was for a gluten-free donut. Sounds so good right now! :P Gosh so what if you labeled your stuff. Would that help? Are people just forgetting or just dont care? I am lucky my mom and dad will not eat from anything other than their own food or their usual brands so it helps.

I once did eat a burger that was cooked in one of their skillets and got hella sick and regretted it. I guess that counts as cheating. I went and finally bought my own non stick. I keep it in my room so my dad doesnt mistakenly use it. I am afraid about getting even more sensitive the longer I am strictly gluten free cause i am just about a month in. I cant imagine when your immune system gets stronger and then getting cross contaminated! Bless your heart.

I hope i didnt offend you! :-(

My post is probably confusing. I don't get cross contamination that often or do I vomit that often. Last two times I vomited was the first 6 months of being diagnosed, so this past week was only the third time. I was traveling this last week and that's how I got a bad batch of breakfast potatoes. I was just curious about others reactions and if they were to accidentally eat a cookie or get a bad batch of potatoes, would they vomit too. I posted the donut and cookie comment just as an example of how little it takes for me to vomit. The last 3 1/2 years have been pretty good, except for the potato incident, but in a way I am glad I have that reaction because I can honestly say if I was just bloating with a little bit of diarrhea, I would probably cheat :unsure: so in a way it's a good thing. :)

Ok, maybe I was a little offended by your post. :unsure: Sorry if I came back sounding a little harsh. I am at work and just typing things out quickly and didn't want people to think I cheat. I have read some of the harsh comments when others post about eating wheat again and the replies aren't good. :o

Enjoy your weekend! :P

Yeah I wasn't all too clear with your post cause it said " I can handle a little cross contamination". I thought you may have been saying that you don't feel you are sensitive to the point of having to wash everything off and avoid breadcrumb dust touching your utensils etc. I think you meant that when you accidently are exposed it doesn't usually provoke the strong response of vomiting. I figured you had been here long enough that you knew that those things are risky and that I may have had false alarm bells ringing. You know what you are doing ;)

Btw- I have seen those harsh posts myself and feel that the judgementalism is not called for. Even if some people definitely know better and intentionally poison themselves, we all do not know their struggles and what is going on in their lives. We should try to be very sensitive to those people I think. I mean if a celiac sufferer or gluten intolerant/sensitive can't be sensitive than that is pretty bad lol

I struggled recently in accepting I may be a little more than just intolerant to dairy.

Tuesday morning - 2am - I drank a powerade due to dehydration from a run Monday night.

Tuesday all day I felt like death warmed over.

By the time I got home tuesday afternoon I felt lightheaded, brain fog heavy, eyesight fuzzy, and yes, felt nauseous and thought I was going to vomit for about 2 hours.

I'm new to this, and my cross or inadvertent contamination's have been just a few, they have been immediate, and they have been powerful.

Yes,swollen face,especially around the eyes,stuffy nose (I can hardly breath) and migraine from hell. I'm ready to faint how bad I feel. A little bit helps: freshly ground strong coffee,everythings a bit draining from the pharmacy. It helps just for the first contamination's day. Day 3 and 4 is the worst.

Sorry,my friends liked to experiment with me. It always worked. Previous friends.

I will vomit if I get a fairly large dose of contamination. It rarely happens now. Before diagnosis, my son was vomiting about 10 times a day. He also vomits if gets a fairly large dose of contamination. It doesn't happen to him very often anymore either.

I know a few Celiacs who cheat, including my father and brother. And all of them don't vomit. They get mild visible symptoms, like nausea and a case of the runs the next day. That's about it. I don't know that this is the case for every case of cheating, but I don't know that I've heard of anyone with severe symptoms cheating.

Even my father, who used to cheat in the beginning, has finally stopped because his reactions have been getting worse lately. the worse they got, the less he cheated, until now he finally doesn't any more. Seems like that's pretty common.

I've thrown up lots of times, and not just from gluten. Projectile chicken anyone? Dang stuff flies real well even after it's cooked. It hasn't happened in a while though. I have trouble swallowing food sometimes and that leads to it being rejected. Bad food! Go way! Happens sometimes when I am too gassed up also. Also doesn't happen much anymore. Ah well, such is life. Things are much better now that I am off grapes. It is not always gluten that is causing the problems. Other foods can cause plenty of problems too.

A week after my 2yo went gluten-free he snatched an animal cracker from another child at Sunday school. The teacher noticed and had him spit out what was left in his mouth. He ate about half of one animal cracker (that she saw, I'm not sure if he ate another before she noticed. He says no, but he's 2 so I'm not sure). Anyway, he threw up twice that day, cried and cried and complained of a tummy ache and couldn't sleep.

That confirmed to me how sensitive he is and how careful we need to be.

    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
