It looks like I have been glutened. I reacted at the store to smelling mustard on a hotdog. I have a problem with vinegar which I suspect caused that. Next I brought home some gluten free hotdogs and grilled them. About 4 hours later I noticed the bloat. That was also when my family was wrapping eggrolls in the kitchen, so I am only guessing what did it. I reacted to the smell of the eggrolls. They were cold by the way; they cooked them outside.

What is this bloating?

I gained 3 1/2 inches around the bellybutton. I have no pain. I usually have no D, but today I had that too. That was before I noticed the bloating.

Hot dogs? The nitrites in them? Hot dogs have always gotten me gluten-free or not. And they have always made me end up in the bathroom PDQ.

Hot Dogs bothered me after going gluten-free - basically anything ending in -ite -ate and -ose made me bloat like crazy - sometimes with nausea, sometimes without. We switched to nitrate free dogs - I can't have those right now because of the paprika, but hope to get them back - yum :)

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

Did you grill the hot dogs on a barbecue? Is it a dedicated grill to gluten free foods? If not, it could be the grill. There is a doctor show on the radio by a gastroenterologist, and he talks often about celiac. On his 4th of July special, he talked a lot about barbecuing and how much gluten residue can be left on a grill by other foods, and how hard it is to clean off.

I am sorry you are feeling lousy. :(

No, they were natural hotdogs without preservative.

What causes bloating? Is it gas? Is it intestinal? Is there anyway to speed healing?

I do think I need to get a grip on my allergies? Reacting even a little to walking by a hotdog stand seems too much.

Hey 1DL...

What reaction did you have to smelling the mustard?

I always wonder about cc in "shared" kitchens/households... things like door knobs, faucets, fridge handle, etc. Could this be likely?

I ran quickly away. :D I feel the glands in my neck swell. For me I think it is probably the vinegar. My body hates fermentation. The dog no doubt had a bun too, but it was the mustard that I smelled.

One other reaction to a whiff of vinegar that I had:
nausea
weakness
swelling
fatigue

If you are coming to my house for dinner please don't bless me with any vinegarette!

Knobs are a definate reason for concern.

Bloating usually means the food hasn't digested very well and is sitting there sort of fermenting (causing gas). The fat content in a hot dog can do that. Have you tried taking digestive enzymes when you eat?
If you're still bloated you could try a bit of baking soda in a glass of water?

I can't walk through the bakery section of the grocery store even when they're not baking, without feeling my throat tighten. I have no idea if there's still enough airborne flour that it gets me? When it first happened it was really frightening and I made an appointment to be tested for a wheat allergy. It turned out I don't have an allergy and the Allergist said he had no idea why I would react that way.

Our bodies are such tricky things. They should come with an owner's manual!

I could go for an owner's manual about now. I inquired recently to my nutritional superivisors about enzymes. They thought I either had too short of transit time, or was low in hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

Transit time was 36 hours. I don't know how I would test the stomach acid.
