Hi Arian,

I want to try to help you figure this out. Were the pumpkin seeds in the shell? Were they raw or roasted. Many Roasted pumpkin seeds in the shell have a white coating that is Salt and Wheat. I used to eat pumpkin seeds all the time before I knew I was Celiac. Now I can't have them, due to the salt/wheat coating. But even shelled or raw pumpkin seeds can be contaminated with gluten if they are run on the same lines. Often nuts are contaminated with wheat and the same could be true of seeds.

How long have you been gluten free? The reason I ask is because a lot people are sensitive to a lot of foods until they heal. Are your symptoms the same ones you get when you eat gluten? If you have the package...read the ingredients to be sure it didn't contain wheat. The next thing is to figure out if they were cross contaminated.

Were your symptoms like what happens with gluten or like what happens with an allergy? A pumpkin allergy is rare, but it CAN happen. I googled pumpkin seed allergy and got this....

My opinion is you got a huge hit of gluten eating pumpkin seeds in the shell. Do you have the package? Can you find the label? What brand? Let's google them. Never assume something is gluten free. I was so surprised to learn that most pumpkin seeds in the shell are covered with wheat and salt, but it is true. I've never seen any that aren't. But I haven't looked in 2 years...I just gave them up.

You are probably going to be sick from the gluten for a while, but you know what? It is a learning process. In the beginning I made a lot of mistakes. It just happens. Do your best to read all labels now, and take good care of yourself. :)

Oh my gosh! That's not rude at all. :) This is your thread so you can do what you want with it and reply when you want to!

Oh no! I react to products that are processed in a facility that also processes wheat too. I want to tell you that some products say "gluten free" on the front, and on the back it says...processed in a facility that also processes wheat. You will want to know that for future reference. :)

It REALLY ticks me off to see that. I have learned the hard way. Read every part of the label, every time.

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Olivia....what country are you located in?  I just bought a bag of regular M&M's from the vending machine at work. They are the milk chocolate ones and it is a 1.69 oz. bag.  The allergy warning states: Contains milk and soy. May contain peanuts.  The "best before" date on it is for April of 2017 so this is a recent bag.

      Getting a diagnosis like celiac an be overwhelming because it's so complex and there's a lot to learn. If you're unhappy with your doctor, switching to a new one and/or getting a second opinion are options. It's really important to find someone you feel comfortable with who listens to your concerns. That being said, as you're preparing for your next appointment, take time to write down any questions that come up as you go about your day beginning to manage your condition and track any symptoms you're experiencing. Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes and treatment options with you? Here are some examples of things to ask: What tests do I need? What treatment options are available? Should I take nutritional supplements? Are there any dietary restrictions that I need to follow? How will I learn which foods contain gluten? Should I see a dietitian? Can you recommend nutritionists who work with celiac patients? The Celiac Foundation is another resource. Their website has lots of information and resources. There's also the Celiac Support Association – they have local chapters, or the National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes. And check out magazines like Gluten-Free Living, Delight Gluten-Free and Living Without.  
    • Kidney disease question
      Icelandgirl and I often remark, "There's always something [to be worried about]"! Whilst  is obviously important to have all these tests and there is good reason to check them (one reads that very occasionally doctors miss something) it has done my health anxiety absolutely no favours having blood test after blood test!    
    • Celiac Night Vision
      On 4th June I posted on the ehealth vision forum under the title seasonal night vision scotomas, but there were no replies. I have just had my eyes tested by an optometrist. Acuity is 20/25. She did field testing and Topcon tomography and did not find anything alarming for my age. However in dim lighting against a light background I can sometimes see a round slightly greenish area about 20 degrees across with lateral extensions to the blind spots. Shutting the eyes suddenly makes it a light area. The scotomas occur within this area. I can also see those intriguing blue arcs of the retina with both eyes (though they always look violet to me). Trying to identify what causes migraine, scotomas and possible celiac symptoms is notoriously difficult which is why there are no good papers on how to do it. I continue to keep a daily record of foods, symptoms and anything else which seems relevant listing what is being avoided and highlighting possible clues. notme! - we are eating tomatoes and potatoes this year! Good luck to other celiac detectives!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
