Call me crazy, but i fear that i possibly got glutened from airborne particles of Winter Wheat. It is being planted in my area and my home is smack dab in the middle of all of the farmland. I cannot trace the sickness i am feeling back to anything that i ate in the last few days...

Sure makes me wonder!

Its a possibility. If airborn flour can get ya, why not the dust from planting?

NO ..... call me crazy ( I wanna dance).

Start a food diary and the airborn that you speak of ,should not be a worry. You might want to revisit your diet.

I must admit I have always thought it possible. If you think about it, anything entering the nose can end up in the stomach as the nasal passages 'drain' down the back of the throat and enter the stomach.

It can happen. It happened to me. I drove thru a hugh dust cloud when a farmer was harvesting barley. I could taste it in my mouth. My reaction was about 5 hours later, quite severe stomach cramping, about 20 - 30 minutes of the severe stuff.

Why would they plant wheat end of november? Around here we still have soy beans in the fields. If they plant wheat during the winter i need to be aware of it, i also think if you get wheat dust on moist lips or in your mouth when breathing it will make you sick. I got it from wild bird seed dust for a while till i read the lable.

A quick google search showed, depends on where you live but not uncommon at all for wheat to be planted in oct-nov. I never knew this, guess i better pay attention what the farmer is doing in that field out back !

It seems like a fairly common problem: http://www.celiac.co...-wheat-harvest/
