Accidental Glutening, Healing Neuro & Abdominal Issues

09 January 2012 - 11:34 AM

Hi everyone,

I was glutened last night by mistake. We ate out and the waiter assured us that the pita bread was gluten free. It, in fact, was not. I'd already eaten a small slice, but it was more than enough to affect my sleep (sleeping too much), give me a burning stomach, and massive brain fog.

The brain fog is the worst. I feel like I can't function. I took a sick day today, and was reminded by my boss of the sick days I've taken this year - I'm almost out. This is adding to my stress for sure, but really I just need some advice as to how to make the brain fog go away.

I think I may get the same symptoms from cane sugar, on a side note, but not the stomach burning - only the brain fog.

Anyone have any suggestions for how to help ease this or make it completely go away? I don't want to resort to coffee drinks because they have tons of sugar, and caffeine bothers my stomach, plus the caffeine is short-lived anyway.
