I started getting sick in high school randomly and it started getting worse in college (I am 22). I had an old roommate with Celiac disease so I thought I would try seeing if I had a food allergy since I kind of knew how that all worked. Well, gluten was making me sick so I got tested for Celiac after I already started the diet. I was told I did not have Celiac but to just stay away from it. I cheated a lot on the diet at first because it was hard but now I have been at it for about 6 months and do not really cheat anymore because I know how sick it makes me.

In the past few months, I have slowly felt like the pain is coming back. When I eat gluten, I normally throw up. This is not happening but I have stomach pains, my throat gets super dry, my chest starts hurting, gassy, I get heart burn and I just feel weird. I do not eat anything with gluten in it so I don't know what it is. I do not wanna go to the doctor even though I know I should because i do not have time for all the testing.

I was just wondering if anyone else ever had this problem and what they did. I have read that I should probably cut out dairy but I am in denial that that is it because gluten is hard enough to cut out. Is it possible I am just getting more sensitive and its a CC problem? I did notice that when I eat french fries, I start getting a horrible stomach ache and terribly gassy.I used to eat them with no problem. I eat them with ranch, so I don't know if its CC with the fries or the ranch. Any advice would be great :)

Hi, our family has just done the elimination diet which is how we discovered my daughter is celiac (not tested). It is pretty full on and involved eliminating all reactive foods (doesn't leave much) and after symptoms go away then reintroduce each food group to see if there's a reaction.

Also reactions can be delayed so it's not always clear what is causing the symptoms.

Good luck, Ann

Simple solution? Quit cheating... period. If it makes you feel like that, why the heck do you eat it?

At any rate, its probably a CC issue. Fryers can be used for many things that are gluteny. Unless a resteraunt has a dedicated one, then its a no go. As for the ranch it depends on the company. Sometimes gluten is in salad dressing sometimes it isn't.

I've been gluten free for a year and about a half. I'm a college student. I refuse to eat at any of the eateries on campus because A: i spent two years in the dorms and i know well enough what goes on and how little it takes for things to get CC'd. B; when i asked the new eatery what they had gluten free they said they only had a pizza. It was cooked along side gluteny ones.

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
