Gas, Flatulence, And Healing My Annoying Insides
Posted 24 November 2012 - 09:55 AM
I've been gluten free for a year and also have cut out dairy, soy, eggs, and corn. I have to eat really naturally and am very strict. I really try to limit anything questionable, and eat almost nothing refined.
I get glutened every few days from my roommates using flour, or accidentally when I eat food at someone's house (Thanksgiving ham gravy = gluten). It gets better in a few days and then I get glutened again. I know from a colonoscopy from before that I had little or no microvilli in my intestines. They were flat and probably covered in mucous.
What can I do? When will the gas and pain go away? What do the rest of you do to get rid of gas? When will healing finally come?

fyi gas x worked intially for me but then not so much i think just overused it idk but might not hurt to try (this ws before i was diagnosed havent checked the label or anything so just check before you do hope it helps/ also i give you a lot of credit for sticking with it while in college, but maybe you have to talk to your roomates again)

It's crazy annoying, I have near-constant pain of some kind, not to mention brain fog and downward mood swings after I eat.
So far this website is my therapy: http://howitfeelstob...ree.tumblr.com/ That, and finding people on this forum who are also going through this.

For the roommate situation. If you can't move, make sure you stock up on papertowels. Wipe down surfaces before preparing food. Also wipe down plate, glass and silverware as flour may settle on those items. Get your own condiments.
Lastly, educate your roommates about the damage that happens to your gut when you ingest gluten. It is a serious matter that needs to be treated as such. Hope this helps a bit.
Wishing you luck,

Gas and bloating are among my major problems too but they're gotten much much better the longer I'm gluten-free. I did the gas-X too but now I don't have to. I've been gluten-free for 4 months and for the first 2-3 was getting accidentally glutened all the time, too, so I feel your pain. I've learned to just quit taking chances on eating out, eating at friends' etc. It's been hard, but slowly my friends and I are finding other ways to socialize that don't revolve around food.
