I have always noticed that I usually don't feel sick for an hour or sometimes hours after I have eaten something that contained gluten.. I have been reading a lot of posts and it seems like a lot of people feel the effects almost immediately.. For example if I eat dinner.. I may feel fine the rest of the night and think I have successfully avoided gluten, but then I find myself awake at 1am covered in sweat and rolling around in bed with horrible stomach pains..

Is there a reason that it doesn't hit me right away? There are times when I start feeling sick within an hour and then I know i'll be stuck on the couch the rest of the night but more often it hits me later.. i'm just curious

I have no idea why. When we went out to eat recently I got sick as soon as we got home and stayed in the bathroom for a LONG time that night. My tummy was torn up bad! It took about a week before my stomach pains ended. Last night I think it was the chili we ate on a hotdog and that didn't effect me till this morning.

Today I'm rolling in the bed, I hate when I don't check something good enough and pay for it!

I think it's because we are all individual and not everything effects us all in the same way. It may also be different on each occasion we get glutened too.

Sometimes takes a couple of days before I am sick after glutening. I get tired on the first day and anxious, migraine the second day, then sickness and D the next day. It takes about a week to get over it usually.

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Same thing happens to me. Seems to take a few hours and sometimes my stomach doesnt hurt until the next meal. This makes it really hard to figure out what it was that you got glutened from.

That's very interesting. I had a migraine yesterday (and part of the previous day) about midnight last night I started with nausea and stomach cramping and constant visits to the bathroom. I may re-commence my food diary, to see if it sheds any light on my situation.

Could be the amount of gluten you're getting. I can only think of a couple of times when I had an immediate reaction (D) and I'm pretty sure it was due to the large amount of gluten the food was contaminated with. My usual reaction to a small amount of contamination is a migraine the next afternoon, with bloating, gas and other stomach issues coming the day after that.

It takes 4-8 hours for me to get a reaction also. I think that my body is ok until the gluten hits my intestines. Then its the D. Usually this is about 1-2 am and I wake up and have to go. For me I have in the past always gotten CC'd at dinner time- at a restaurant or others' house. When I get immediately sick, its a CC combo of gluten and dairy. When I used to drink caffeine, my reactions were a little faster, say 2-4 hours. I think its the speed of your digestion and when the gluten hits the part of your guts that trips the trigger.
I suggest 2-3 doses of probiotics right away to help. That much probiotics usually is pretty hard on my stomach but after CC, it helps shorten the duration to under a day. - I picture the probiotics in my guts as trigger happy marines. They go in shoot up the place then burn it down. Its not peaceful, but they get er done. :)

It takes me 1-2 days to react most of the time. The previous poster's thought of it being a more minor CC that takes a couple days to show up is my thought as well. I am careful not to consume direct gluten, but suck at being lax and eating out and taking the chance of CC. It is hard that it takes a couple days to show up, it makes it harder for me to pin point what made me sick.

I think it varies from person to person.
