I Think I've Been Oatened!

I was anticipating the day certified gluten-free oats could be re-introduced into my diet. Well, the big day was Thursday. It was exciting! Thrilling, even. My celiac diagnosis was 16 months ago. But yesterday I knew something weird was going on. My personality changed. I feel sort of ill (not a big deal). Walking into things. Stumbling. Intense forgetfulness. There is no chance of my being glutened - the only thing different in my diet was the oats. The neurological symptoms are more alarming than feeling ill. Oh, and rash between all my fingers that looks like eczema.

Dumb oats. Ah, well. It is not as though oats are vital or necessary to our diet! I haven't really missed them for 16 months so I won't miss 'em again. ;)

I had not felt ill from gluten in the past but imagine I now have a pretty good idea what it is like. :angry:

Not a vent or anything - it just goes to show how things change! Oatenings are just not all that fun. :(

I've checked and double checked. Thanks for that! I'm putting kitchen things away in the wrong spots - it is so very weird. I walked smack dab into our couch and it is not even in the way. Not sure how that one happened...

It doesn't roll off the tongue quite like "glutened" but it works! :P

Sorry you are feeling bad. Watch out of oat CC. It wasn't like when I actually ate the oats with an instant reaction, but it slowly built up and one day, then for 8 stinking months I was miserable. I am pretty careful where I source my gluten free ingredients calling and making sure there is no chance of oat CC. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Are there any big brands who's gluten free products may be contaminated with "gluten free oats"? I have had a rash on my fingers which the doctor said was eczema but none of the prescription creams are working! I know i react to gluten free oats, so now I'm wondering if something possibly may be contaminated with oats :P thanks...

And hope you get well soon, love2travel!

Yes there is. Here is a link to a topic I started on it.

I'm so sorry the oats not only didn't work out but caused you so much distress :( I am sensitive to oats also, and have to watch out for even pure oat cross contamination. Feel better!

I get "oatened" too. I like the term. I also need to watch out for cross contamination from oats.

Thanks! I'm not quite as bad today. I'm functioning quite well. It is disconcerting when you suddenly forget simple tasks. I forgot to lock the front door of the house before leaving this morning!

The oats were certified gluten free. So long, oats! At least for now. I do not feel that bad about it because in comparison to many of you, I got off easy only having to avoid gluten and some cheeses.

Maybe it should be "avenined."

    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Are there any foods, like broth, that don't make your son feel sick?
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.

      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!
