Reaction Time To Accidental Glutenings
Posted 16 January 2013 - 08:10 PM
I'm wondering if it's possible to have a reaction to an accidental glutening about a day and a half after eating something? I had an early dinner at a restaurant on Saturday that is the only questionable thing I could have eaten over the last few days (besides that I've only eaten food I've prepared since then). I had a grilled chicken salad, which the waitress assured me was 'safe' to eat. I'm worried that maybe there was cross-contamination or maybe the chicken was marinated in something. My typical gluten symptoms kicked in on Monday morning (very frequent/excessive urination, bladder pain) and lasted most of the day. The last two days I've been lethargic, anxious and very depressed (also typical symptoms for me). The only thing I can pin down as being at all questionable was that chicken salad, but I usually react to gluten within about 3 or so hours of eating it. I haven't had an incident in almost a year though, so maybe my reaction time is getting longer? If anyone has thoughts or similar experiences, please feel free to comment.

AFAIK, yes. It takes 3-5 days for my symptoms to occur, but I also have NCGI not Celiac.
