Throwing Up As A Symptom Of Glutening?
0

9 posts in this topic

I ate at an Indian restaurant last night with a group of people and I did something that I never do - I didn't check out the restaurant to see is what I was ordering was gluten-free. I was just on a trip and asked these questions over and over and I guess I figured because I've never had a problem with Indian food, that it would be ok. I got aloo gohbi, which is potato and cauliflower in sauce and there should not be any gluten in that, though I am sensitive and there could have been CC. Anyway, we went for a drink afterwards and I started feeling VERY bloated and when I went to the bathroom I had D - these are common symptoms for me. However, then I started to feel very nauseated and as soon as I broke from the group and went into the subway, I actually threw up! That has never happened to me with glutening and I don't think I was food poisoned as everyone else was fine and it's a high-rated restaurant. Has anyone else gotten nauseated and thrown up from gluten? Thanks.

The last time I was glutened (only the 4th time in 10 years!) I began throwing up about 2 hours later. For the next 3 hours, I sat on the john and threw up countless times (I don't get why the stomach keeps trying to empty when it's obvious there's nothing left in there!) while the gluten did its best to get out of my body from both ends. My glutening was a careless mistake on my part and I'm super careful. I won't be as complacent again!!

It could well be from gluten, or it could be from the drink you had. A lot of us can't handle alcohol at all anymore, and just one drink can give us those results.

Thanks for the replies. I am always so careful so it doesn't seem fair that the one time I don't check something out that should be fine, it isn't. But I guess if one moment of not being thorough results in throwing up in public, I will never assume a meal will be fine again!!! I'm quite sure that it was gluten and not the drink since (thank goodness) I haven't had a problem with wine so far.

I know I am late here, but most of the times my symptoms are the same, usually head stuff. Dizziness, nausea with no vomiting, Diarrhea, migraines, but sometimes it IS vomiting. I never used to get symptoms bad, but the longer I am gluten-free, the worse it is. I got glutened bad from Texas Roadhouse because I didn't ask them anything. I just ordered a steak and backed potato, assuming it was safe. Within 2 hours, I was vomiting and bloated and my stomach was in PAIN. only thing to do was go to sleep. It was awful. Migraine and vomiting for 2 days :(

I have been gluten free for years.  Then I developed an intolerance to Lobster.  (I will vomit in 15 minutes to 2 hours after eating it.)

Are you sure you aren't having a reaction to a different food?  That being said I swear I have vommited as a reaction to gluten too.

Some Indian sauces have gluten in them, especially if the restaurant uses pre-packaged sauce.

 

My workplace has an Indian restaurant, and they buy-in the sauces, but the company that makes the sauce labels the safe ones as gluten-free. It's about 50/50 for their sauces.

 

(Thankfully the end-product is created in a clean environment, so I've never been glutened there.)

I was trying to save some money by buying store brand nutella instead of the actual thing. I didn't carefully read the label sicne it had been fine the previous time I bought it. Unfortunatly, I was throwing up the whole next day and could barely hold down water. They had changed the recipe and  just wrote "may contain gluten things". So much for saving 70 cents. Lesson learned, always read the labels.

    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession.
